    Icon8 Ford Escape aftermarket wire issue

    I just bought an aftermarket headunit for my 01 Escape, and when I wired the plugs up I ended up with an extra couple wires. Blue wire from the Escape side and from the Scosche side I have orange/black, orange and a black/white left over. I plugged it in and could hear the unit power up, but thefaceplate wouldnt come on and it spit my cd right back out. Can someon help me figure out what I did wrong? Everything matches except for the leftover wires. There is no orange on the escape side which is used for auto dim so I figured it was pointless anyways, but would the black/white be causing the problem? Or even the blue left in the dash? Very confused here. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks all!

    Did you try reading the instructions? You said it was new.
