I have a situation, In my 99 f150, i took out the factory radio and very stupidly cut off the factory reverse harness. After, I installed an aftermarket radio but that started having problems and would increase its volume to its maximum capacity on its own, and then at other times would just shut off on its own. So I bought a factory radio and want to reinstall it, but now am having trouble with the wires, i bought a reverse wire harness but the colors don't match with the original wires.. so i'm confused as to what i should do, any help is appreciated.
