'97 Mach 460 CD player wiring help needed

My new-to-me 1997 Mustang GT convertible came with an Mach 460
AM/FM/cassette stereo but no CD player. I found a clean Mach 460
AM/FM/cassette and CD player with wiring harness from a 1999 Mustang
and installed them in my car.

The AM/FM radio works fine but I can't get the CD player to work. When
I installed everything, I was left with an unconnected plug on the
wiring harness. It is a gray plastic female 10-pin plug with a red
center, 6 pin sockets in one row, and 4 pin sockets on the other. I
can't find a place to plug in this connector.

The part numbers for the units I installed are:
AM/FM Radio - Ford F8ZF-19B165-CA (Radio Series 165)
CD Player - Ford F8ZF-19B160-AB (Sony Corp. Compact Disc Player SN
79732, 12/1998)
Wiring Harness - Ford XR33-19B113-B129J

I cannot insert a CD in the player -- it is almost as if there is
already a CD in place -- and there is no visible indication that the CD
player has power.

Additionally, the radio seems to have a time indication on the display
when it is off.

Thanks in advance for any tips, hints, sugggestions, or solutions!

Re: '97 Mach 460 CD player wiring help needed

Your problem is with the compatibility of the 99+ harness.
You need a 94-98 "premium sound" harness in order for the CD player to
work. This is the harness used for the non-Mach stereo speakers and
amps.

Hope this is helpful
