If this model has an amplified system, then you may need a different wiring harness. The harness you purchased may be for the non amplified model. Try that, and let us know.

Many radios today have a security system that renders the radio inoperable should they be stolen or removed from the vehicle. If this radio is from a different vehicle, it may have a security code that needs to be reset.

Definitely. The specified harness adapter you used makes no provision for connecting the rear seat control unit. You may be able to modify the adapter wiring to connect to the rear speakers.

Radio wires differ from the speaker to the radio

This is the most common problem with self installs.The best thing to do is to get the car radio installation plug,it will plug into the factory plug for your factory radio and will give you a color coded pigtail to wire into that usually matches up perfectly with new aftermarket car radios.If the wires are already cut then you best bet is to extend the wires so that they are easy to work with hookup the power,ground,antenna and try dirrerent combos to isolate each speaker and label the wires accordingly.
