The factory radios are not touchscreen (as you probably know), which means if the system is running (or was running) with the floor amplifier then they would have to have an adapter harness behind the radio. If the radio was bypassing the floor amplifier, then there would be a ton of wires running from all the speaker outputs of the radio to the speaker outputs of the amplifier (bypassing the amplifier).
Can you get a photo of what exactly you have going on behind the radio, and if possible at the amplifier too (if there is anything to see, specifically at the electrical connectors on the right side)? This will help me figure out how exactly the radio was wired in, since there is a considerable room for variation there.
