Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 2 years ago.

 

 

If you have a Wiring Adapter Plug for the "Factory Ford Plug", then the wires should be "color for color" on the Kenwood & Adapter Plug
Red - Red, Yellow - Yellow, White - White, etc.

 

If you DO NOT have a Wiring Adapter Plug for the Factory Ford Plug, then you will need to cut & splice, (not good)
Let me know which you have
