Okay, I have a 1997 Mustang GT. When I bought it it still had the Original Equipment Manufacturer(OEM) cassette tape deck in it. Needless to say I was going to change it out. I have a very nice Kenwood CD player in it now, and even though it is not a state of the art MP3 player, it is still more my speed. Anyway, when I was installing it I went to the nicest car stereo store in my area, authorized Kenwood, Sony, Alpine dealers, etc.I bought a connector that went in between the OEM connector and the Kenwood connector and made it possible to install the Kenwood head unit with no wire splicing involved. I paid $75.00 for the connector ten years ago. After three days of wondering what the heck I was doing wrong because I could not get my stereo to work, it finally dawned on me that this special connector that I paid $75.00 for at the nicest car stereo store in my area was not the right one. The pins did not match up like they were supposed to. So after all of that I wound up splicing into the power wires and running speaker wire myself, and my stereo has worked ever since.
Having said that I have included wiring diagrams for your vehicle's OEM stereo, and connector pinout diagrams in the diagrams down below. You might want to compare them to the connector that came in your kit and make sure that the pins are lining up. Please get back to us with what you are able to find out.
