Help with PAC AOEM-HON20 install.

I removed the light blue wiring harness from the back of the HU (07 EX non Nav) and I assumed that the 20 pin connector from the Pac unit plugged into the HU at the same place. I did this and power to the HU, dead. I reversed and put the original harness back in and everything worked. Was I going about it correct? I didn't hear the Pac harness click into place and wondered if it was fully inserted. I tried again, again no luck. Anybody lend a hand. Have a PM into Hillstones so hopefully I'll get some info to finish this project.

I assumed the light blue harness is just moved aside and not used but does it connect to the Pac female connector? Confused.

I would think (without even looking at it) that the factory harness would plug into PAC female connector and the PAC's wiring harness would plug into the radio - that would just be a pass thru for all the important wires.

There are both mail and female ends on the Pac unit so maybe that will work. The directions, both online and my copy are least to me. Anyone else know for sure? Thanks PaulD

Cables for adding or replacing factory amplifier.
Installation instructions for cables on list C
This C cable, is used when replacing or adding aftermarket amplifiers to a factory amplified system. (the cable
model # AMP-RCA is also required) This cable plugs in between the factory radio and the dash harness that was removed
from the factory radio. The 18 pin connector then plugs into the OEM-1. The factory system remains unchanged using this

Use the AMP-RCA cable connected to the 16 pin connector of the OEM-1 to connect your aftermarket amplifier. The AMPRCA
provides 2 pair of female RCA jacks and a remote turn on lead.
Installation instructions for the AMP-RCA cable

Does this make it sound like the female end of the pac goes into the HU and the male end of the Honda harness goes into the female end of the Pac.
