Your pics make it tough because you're looking at the wrong side of the connector - the wires between the connector and the radio are meaningless - what we should be focusing on is whether the wires going into the connector from the factory wiring harness are intact first.

If all the wires running from the car to the connector are good, then buying the appropriate connector is the first step.

The amp lead for the Mach 460 (in the factory harness) IS NOT blue/white - it is just dark blue. It should go into pin 1 on the 8-pin plug. Typically, the amp turn-on lead from an aftermarket radio is blue/white.

That being said - the Mach 460 is not going to be easy to get to work correctly with only one set of preouts on the head unit. The Metra harness has two sets in it - one is for the woofers in the rear deck, which need to be fed by a signal that has a low-pass cross-over on it. The other is for the tweeters and (maybe) the speakers in the door which needs a mid-pass cross-over on it. That's why I mentioned hooking one up to the dedicated sub-output on the head unit (built in low-pass cross-over) and the other to a front or rear "regular" output.


2006 GT - Vortech polished w/ intercooler, Eibach suspension, Hurst short-throw, some other goodies - tuned by Paul's High Performance. It moves...

and it collects dust admirably while parked for repairs in the garage...

SOLD - 1995 Black Mustang GT, AODE. Loved it, but I had to let it go...
