    Dodge Wiring Harness Help

    Hello, I'm pretty much a noob at doing installs but I'm doing a basic one on a Dodge Ram. I have the wiring harness for it and was about to start connecting it to the HU (Kenwood) wiring when I noticed a few things that puzzled me.

    For starters the harness has 2 yellow wires but the deck wiring only has 1 so I'm not sure if I'm suppose to hook one harness wire to the deck and the other somewhere else or what.

    Another issue is the harness has 2 blacks and the deck again has 1. Should I be connecting one the harness blacks to the HU and the other harness black to the chassis, all three straight to the chassis, or what?

    I tried to search the forums but didn't have to much luck. Thanks for the help.

    Connect all the yellows together and all the blacks together.

    So your saying do something like that correct?
    BTW the blue thing represents a butt connector.

    Cool deal.
    Also on the wiring harness is the blue and white wire with 'amp turn-on' wrote on it the same as the blue and white wire labled 'P. CONT' on the HU wiring the same thing? I cant reall tell cause the harness blue is a little lighter then the HU blue. If they are the same they should be connected even though no external amp is being used right or wrong?

    Nice. How hard is it to get the dash piece off? I've never messed with a Ram, just Dakota and Intrepid. I'm not even sure where to start in takin that off. (04 Ram BTW)
