Question 2012 receiver harness location? (w/sync)

I assume it's this giant mess of spaghetti on the passenger side that's covered in "made in China" stickers, right?

Pictures: (I apologize for my phone's terrible camera)





I just want to make sure I'm not tapping into my air-bag or something else important.

Also the colors with orange purple/orange, green/orange, etc, are the positives and the corresponding white ones are the negatives, right? The colors on the signal wires that I'm connecting to my amp's LOC are white/black, white, purple/black, purple, green/black, green, grey/black, and grey.

I'm just trying to tap in to the speakers and run the signal into my amp's built-in LOC. Is that the right harness of wires for the speakers?

Question same as 2011 Fiesta and Focus?

I've read in several places that the 2012 Focus shares the same audio specs as the 2011 Fiesta. I've found some wiring harness color info for the 2011 Fiesta:

I noticed that it was nearly the same as the 2011 Focus, does that sound right?

there is a difference actually. the first color listed is the main color on it; second color is the stripe on that wire. so they will look different.

Do not do this until you have verified with a multimeter! This is only safe to test phase and if you know 100% that the wires are correct. if you get the wrong wires and put voltage to them you could possibly blow an electrical component in the car (including the airbag). I have seen this happen before and even knew someone that set off an air bag and was knocked out by it. needless to say there was injury and expensive cost to fix it.
