Help PLease! 05 Five Hundred Stereo Install

Post by rockalittle » Wed Mar 11, 2009 9:47 pm

Hi all,
I have an 05 Five Hundred and I am installing an aftermarket head unit. Sirius was installed in the car by Ford.
When I started to hook up the wiring harness for the new head unit I saw that the wires from the sirius box were spliced and most of the wires went into a smaller harness.
(I had no idea there were 2 back there. I'm guessing one is to the 6 cd changer)
The problem I'm having now is I don't know how to get all the wires going back to the original harness because the colors don't match.
It appears that only 2 wires are coming from the original batch (one black /one white) and they are attached to a harness with most of the sirius wires.
Can anyone help?
Maybe a link to a diagram?

Thanks

Can't really help but would suggest posting the question on the Crutchfield.com forums.
