i am trying to install a alpine deck into my Gen 4 taurus. i have no idea what i am doing, but the prices that they wanted for installs were too high for me. so i have a couple questions. i am using the metra kit i believe.

1) what am i plugging in into the box in my trunk? the plug and antennae plug doesn't fit into the box, it fits around the plugs i unplugged.

2) what do i do with the wires that come out on the other side of the rear defrost button?

3) do i just match up the wires from the deck to the harness and crimp them?

1. Nothing plugs into the box in the trunk. You take the speaker harness and antenna cable off the box in the trunk and plug them into the long harness that comes with the dash kit. You may need an antenna adapter (which you can get at Wal-Mart or Autozone or anyplace that sells car parts) if the antenna plug doesn't fit.

2. This is what you do with those wires: http://www.ford-taurus.org/taurusinfo/Features/radioG4install/Page7.jpg

3. Yes the wires on the harness that comes with the deck crimps to the wiring harness that comes with the dash kit.
