99 Mustang Radio Issues

My factory radio in my 99 Mustang is giving me issues. I will randomly come on and go off and it is becoming more frequent. I pulled out the radio and checked the wires and I discovered if I moved the wire harness that has the power, ground and speaker wires the head unit will power on and off. So im guessing there is an issue with that connector. Is there a place to buy the factory wire harneess and connector that plugs in to the back of the factory stereo and if so where can I get one. I don't want to upgrade to an aftermarket stereo. The factory headunit has a cassette and below the stereo it has a factory cd player.

I'm pretty sure the radio does not have the plug in harness on the back of it. If I were you, and this just me talking, I myself would just bypass the harness and use those round male-female connectors, if you know what I'm talking about here.... At least you'd have a good connection then

Thrush welded mufflers, Flow Master H-pipe. CAI. Shorty headers. Waiting to get 3.73 gears, body kit.....And wheels....

I really would like to find the factory wire harness with the connector so i could cut the old factory harness and connector off, then splice the new factory wire harness and connector on. I have a feeling that the problem is one of the wires that is terminated inside the grey connector that plugs into the back of the radio. Because when I move the wires close to the grey termination thats when the radio powers on and off. Its strange because if you have the dash lights on (when you have your parking lamps or headlights on) the radio and cd player illuminate but the radio and cd play do not come on until you mess with that wire harness on the back of the radio.
