Then I crimp the male connectors onto every wire of the Harness Adapter.

Step 3: Connect the two pieces.

Now simply connect each wire to it's counterpart by matching the colors of the wire.  Depending on your vehicles setup, you may have a few extra wires that do not connect.  Check all your product documentation to make sure your not missing something important.  Once you have all the wire connected the newly adapted harness is ready to be installed in your vehicle.
I'm not really sure which part of the stereo this is from, do you have any more pictures?
