1999 Taurus Stereo Wiring

I'm looking for a switched 12v power source in the trunk of a 1999
Taurus. I've located the (trunk mounted) radio tuner and it had three
harnesses coming out of it. A large black and smaller grey harness go
to the speakers and power sources and a small black harness goes to the
trunk mounted CD changer. I've determined the Red/yellow wire on the
large black harness is a constant 12v source but I am so far unable to
locate a switched 12v source does anyone have any information on this?

Looking at the wiring manual, I don't think there is one. There is one
wire labeled 'Audio System ON', so I have a feeling there isn't a
standard Accessory-style power connection. I think it's the control
panel in the dash that signals it to power up or down through
communiocations and/or the special wire.

That said, there might be a second 'unused' connector sitting on the
side of the trunk, next to the RCU (radio tuner.) It looks like the
black with pink stripe MIGHT be a switched accessory circuit (on in run
or accessory) on a 15A fuse. This connector is originally designed to
power a cell-phone adaptor.
