Okay there are 2 possible solutions depending on your problem
If its the lead that plugs into the back of the headunit then this is the page you need Click Here All you have to do is choose the one you need! just look at how many pins there are pretty simple to work out
If its the lead that plugs in from your car loom to the headunit loom then you need to look here and pick out your car
This will solve your problems :)

I'm not completely sure of what the problem is. Normally, when you purchase a receiver, you get a wiring harness with it. That harness is meant to be plugged into the receiver and connected into the vehicle wiring according to the diagram in your manual.
If you did not get the correct harness, for the Kenwood KDC-MP225 you can get a replacement here: http://www.partstore.com/Part/Kenwood/Kenwood/E30632205/New.aspx?ModelMfgName=Kenwood&ModelBrandName=Kenwood&ModelNumber=KDCMP225
You also need the color codes of the wiring coming from your vehicle's original radio harness. And unless, you are willing to cut or tap into the vehicle wiring, it's best to purchase an aftermarket harness specific to your vehicle. These are made by Metra, Scosche, and others, and are well worth the $10-15 they cost. You simply plug it into the original vehicle wiring and match up the function of each wire according to your Kenwood manual. You can find a harness for most every make and model of vehicle here: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/cat_i95_wiring-harnesses.html. SonicElectronix also has replacement harnesses for many aftermarket receivers, including the Kenwood.
