Radio Wireing Help

Im hoping someone will be able to help me. When I bought my 2006 F-350 Lariat, the sock radio was in the truck but steering wheel controls were not working. When I pulled the radio out the previous owner had cut out the original radio harness and then spliced in a different ford harness(wire colors don't match up) I messed around and was able to get the steering wheel controls to work. But for some reason now the radio is starting to change channels on its own among other things. I think the wireing is still a little off. I was wondering if someone has a picture or if they are taking their radio out if they could take a picture of the plug top that plugs into the back of the radio. I need to be able to tell from the photos which wire colors go into which pins on the plug. Thanks very much in advance.

There is only one wire that runs from the steering wheel controls that does all the functions. Each button sends a different signal to the radio. If that wire isnt connected good or grounding out, then it could go 'nanners. Also, if the buttons themselves, or the circular disk behind the wheel is going bad, it could do the same thing.

Thats correct. If the steering wheels controls work at all then youve got the right wire. Just a bad connection somewhere and the impedance is fluctuating. Try soldering it behind the radio.
