Default Legacy Stereo Wiring

Sorry, I'm a noob i didn't know if I should put this in the stereo forum, or not. I took out the HU in my 1998 Legacy GT wagon and I am putting in a cutsom JVC headunit. I couldn't get ahold of a scosche wiring harness or similar so I am wiring myself. I am using JVCs wiring diagram and I have all the doors off so I am hooking the correct speakers up to the correct wires. But I still have like 3 left over pins, what do they go to? Also when I reconnect the negative lead on the battery the turnsignals flash, and when I start the car the headunit just comes on temporarily. I put the stock headunit in, and the turn signals still flash but I did not try to turn it on. I checked all the fuses. Is it because I have the door panels off? I doubt it is the left over wires becuase I plugged the stock wiring harness into the stock HU and they still did it. Thanks, I need help fast, my car is all apart and I am running out of day light.

The lights are flashing because of the security system. There should be a yellow sticker under the hood to tell you how to deactivate it if you don't have the keyless entry transmitters. Two of your left over wires will be for the dash illumination.

Only time I ever hacked into the factory wiring on a car was when i was replacing the stock AM radio in a 82 ford truck that I got when I was 15. Since then I have seen how easy it is and will never do that again unless I have to. This keeps my advil bill down.
