There are odd number (5,7,11) of pole stepper motor...

The illustration, click to see full size, comes from the wikipedia article on stepper motors.

You need a resistance meter and measure between any 2 wires until you find the highest resistance that isn't an open cct.

Do this systematically write down your results as you go.

I can't think of any other way to do it. The wire colours may or may not meet a standard.

The easiest way by far is to check the datasheet for the motor in question.
It will show the pinout for the coils - usually either by wire color or numbers on the connector.
You need the outer connections and won't need the wires coming from the junction of 2 coils going in the same direction in the diagram from the datasheet.

Start by looking at what colours you have.
