need help with wiring harness...

I recently ordered a wiring harness from Crutchfield for my 2009 Kia Rio 5. Unfortunately, I don't think the harness that was sent to me will work.

Here is what the back of the factory deck and connectors looks like:

Here is the harness that was sent to me:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...e/P1060121.jpg

It looks like the back of the deck has 2 connectors, but the harness that was sent only has 1. I'm not sure I can make this work... any ideas? Or is this just the wrong harness altogether?

I think it is a wrong harness.
First of all - it has male connectors, while the deck uses (looking on http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...e/P1060112.jpg) female connectors.
Another thing is color coding, although this does not necessary have to match....
Contact them to make sure they know what they are doing.

Just got of the phone with crutchfield, and it is in fact the wrong harness. Not only that, but they don't even carry the right one!
