The chto-013 is for adapting aftermarket stereos to a factory amplified setup. You have the wrong harness if it is not factory amplified.
What I would recommend is that you pick up a standard Metra/Access part #71-6522 and go from there and use the extra money you saved by returning the CHTO to buy a few cases of beer. All you have to do with the 71-6522 is run an ACC wire from the steering column wiring harness (PINK wire with WHITE stripe, NOT the WHITE with PINK stripe), or from the cig lighter. I wouldn't recommend using the cig lighter though, seems some get interference from it.
The 71-6522 can be picked up locally for about $15 at just about any car stereo store (car toys, quality auto sound, etc)
Don't let anyone talk you into the XSVI-6522-NAV, all it does is make the stereo stay on for 15 seconds after you turn the vehicle off. If you want that, it is understandable, but is it worth the $120 bux for that?
Hope this helps!
