So you purchased another radio, right? Then it came with the harness already(for the radio and not the car). If the current radio is the factory radio then you need to purchase a wiring harness for the model/year of your car that will be compatible with your car's harness. Wal mart carries some but if you can't find it there then you need to go to your local car audio installation shop and buy one from them(it might be pricey there). Now, if your current radio is aftermarket, look to see if it already has the wire harness in the back. If it does then your good to go, just cut the harness from the radio away from the harness that plugs to the car's wire harness and reconnect using your new radio's harness(just follow the wire's color code). but if it doesn't then you need to buy one.
here you go
take factory trim of from around radio should just pull off with a little force snap clips hold in pannel .
then once pannel is off then remove hex head bolts then pull out radio and remove wire harness from back of radio and antenna
to install aftermarket radio you dash kit radio and wire harness and antenna adapter ....
the tcc solenoid is located in the tras! when u open the hood on the drivers side ! look at the trans it will be the plug thats on the bell housing ! the plug could be white or blue! the trans must be removed to replace!
You should buy a replacement harness to restore the OEM wiring, so that you can then properly plug it into an aftermarket harness that has been mated to your Kenwood radio's harness. The next buyer will appreciate that the factory radio has been replaced when you're done with the car, and you get the added benefit of not being forced to leave your Kenwood head unit in it, since it can be easily unplugged once you're at that point.

You could get a stereo installation kit for your year, make & model, that comes with a pigtail plug that would plug right into the existing harness plug and prevent you from having to hack up your original wiring harness.
