98' xlt car stereo wire harness

i just got a new pioneer head unit for christmas and also got a dynex car stereo wire harness that should clip onto the factory plug that goes into the back of the head unit. it says it is made for 1998 and up ford vehicles but it there is 2 clips into the back of the factory head unit and the dynex clip doesnt even fit onto the one that it looks like it should. i really dont feel like hasseling to hook it up without it so im wondering if anyone can help. i saw another harness online that consists of the 2 clips and look like it fits. i really need some help because i dont have the money to pay someone to do it nor do i have the time to find all the needed wires and somehow make them work.

You should have the T-100 plugs on the stock radio. If you do not have a cd changer or sub-woofer you only need to hook up the 16 pin connector. The 20 pin only has a gray/blk wire which is vehicle speed signal and would not be used by an aftermarket head unit. The 20 pin is used for rear integrated controls, cd dj and steering wheel controls also. The 8 pin is for the factory sub-woofer.
The correct adapter is:
Metra 70-5700 into harness T-100 plug 16 pin

Function Color code-Solid/Stripe
12 Volt Ignition/Acc Red
12 Volt Battery/Memory Yellow

During that time-frame, Explorers had 2 different types of harnesses for different stereos.. You have the wrong 1 unfortunately.. If you don't mind snipping and splicing some wires, then it should be pretty easy to match the colors up.. But if you decide to swap the stock in, in the future, then you got another project on your hands..
