Aftermarket radio install

Last year I installed a Kenwood DPX501BT in my fusion. I used a PAC RP4-FD11 for the steering wheel controls. I also believe this was needed so the amp turns on. I DO NOT USE MY STEERING WHEEL CONTROLS AT ALL. WITH THE STOCK OR KENWOOD. My plan was wire up some plugs that would plug into the 3 that go to the stock radio. I was told the PAC was needed. When I did the install. I turned the dial to 3 for kenwood. I wired up my KW wires to the ones as part of the package harness. I never did any programming of the box. Also not sure how to do that. With everything installed if I did. Push a wheel control button. It would light up DVD on the temp display. That would never go away. Now I have removed the 501BT. As I bought a new single din kenwood KDC X701. That I will install in place of. What I want to know. Is it possible to take the 3 plastic connectors from the PAC harness. Wire them to the radio so I don't use the control box. Just plug the three in and be done. I do have the Sony system with the amp. Also if not possible how do I programming this thing. I no longer have the instructions. But even when I did I was scratching my head. As it was a first for me. In short I would just like to plug in the plugs. Turn my music on and listen. I didn't know if it was possible. Even if I had to jump wires so the amp comes on with the radio. Also the PAC harness has rca plugs for rear seat and sub. That I don't use is it possible to snip the wire for them. Along with the rca plugs and remove them. Sorry so long

OK let's try this. Is it possible to use the 3 connectors. That plug into the factory ends. So I can have my kenwood work along with the amp. I know the biggest of the three. Contains the speaker wire plus maybe per and grND. Not sure what the 2 small ones feed

How's your research so far? A buddy here is looking to replace his stock radio for his 2010 Fusion. We are gonna take a look at it right after we finished installing the Poison Spyder parts on the current Jeep project.

Did you ever make the steering control works?
