Ah, now I get it.
You will need a PAC adapter. Check out crutchfield Dot com
You will need the one for "With a factory amp.". If you have steering-wheel controls you will need one for that also.

Look RR quarter panel and see if there is a speaker back in the corner. If not, No factory Amp.
If you want to use the OEM harness you will still need a PAC adapter. If you want to cut the wires, you will need to find a power source. The OME HU (radio) is turned on by the computers. So power will not be supplied without the computer in the OME radio asking for it.
Speaker wire colors can be found in the thread I linked above. If you already have an adaptor for the factory harness then all you really need to add is a B+ and ground.

You can use the Metra, but you will need to find a Pos(+) source, and then remove the Pos(+) that comes from the OEM harness/plug. IE cut the + wire on the metra between the Metra connector and the new radio. Then add your Pos to the wire going to the new radio. BBut be Sure to tape off the wire you cut, or it could short out on any metal.

Yellow with red stripe is B+ in the OEM harness. On the opposite end of same plug is black with white stripe, that is ground.

I'm not familiar with that harness. I know the PAC harness is basically plug and play and several members here have use it.

I think I got it now since my stock radio has no rca jacks all I have to get is a hi low output speaker to. Jacks and hook speaker wire from closest place to the amp plug jack end to amp and to the box and we should be booming???trying to do it today when it warms up some them I won't need to use aftermarket.
