2004 Focus Stereo Wiring Troubles

Hey there

I just bought a 2004 Focus ZX5 not 3 days ago, and am wanting to install my old system into it, but have run into a problem.

I can't seem to find a wiring harness that matches the one(s) in the car.
The 2003/2002 focus ones I come across aren't remotely similar.

It looks as though I'm going to have to hardwire it..
Does anyone know of a wiring diagram for the harness' in the car ?

Has anyone else gone this route, and just felt it out by testing each wire as they go?

Is your factory radio the Blaupunkt MP3?
If so, us a VW harness kit. Check here for the diagram http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...&threadid=3037
If you need a remote power signal, use connector A pin 5, it's not listed.

The standard Ford radio harness should work then, but I'm not positive. Maybe the Canadian wiring is different!

Lightbulb '04 Ford Harness

I installed an aftermarket stereo when I bought my '04 Focus, but not before hitting a couple of walls. This is what I bought from Best Buy and Wal-Mart to help me out:

1. Mounting Kit: '99 - '03 Cougar & '00 - '03 Focus

2. Ford Wiring Harness

3. Din Radio Removal Tools for Ford Vehicles

4. Euro to US antenna adapter

This is the wiring on the factory deck from Ford

The Gray harness is for Ground, Power, etc... the factory harness seems like it doesn't fit because it's too small...
