sorry for the delay............

Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”
.
It is always best to use a Wiring Adapter so there are no mistakes, as they are color for color with most Aftermarket Radios
This is for the Standard Radio:

Constant 12V+ = Pink/Light Blue
Switched 12V+ = Yellow/Black
Ground = Black/Light Green
Illumination = Light Blue/Red
Dimmer = Blue/Red
Amplifier = Remote Blue

Front Speakers
Left Front (+) = Orange/Light Green
Left Front (-) = Light Blue/White
Right Front (+) = White/Light Green
Right Front (-) = Dark Green/Orange
Rear Speakers
Left Rear (+) = Gray/Light Blue
Left Rear (-) = Tan/Yellow
Right Rear (+) = Orange/Red
Right Rear (-) = Brown/Pink

sorry.....no internet.........

Please reread my answer.......that was for "standard radio"

You did not post if there is a Factory AMP, if this is "Premium Sound", etc

I'm sorry..apparently you are not aware that Lincoln installed apprx 4 "different" model radios in the 1999 Lincoln Town Car Executive Series

Alpine was the main unit.......was there a Model Number on the Factory Radio?

Is that is a picture of your Car & Factory Radio?
If that is the Factory Radio you are replacing, remove the radio & post the Model & Part Number off of it
