2005 VUE Red Line

Is there a different harness that should be used when installing a aftermarket radio for the VUE Redline? This car also a factory amp and sub. Thanks!
I don't mean to rain on your parade, but if you are putting in a new radio, you really should do it right an do the radio, the amp AND the speakers, then you would have no problem...(plus the factory sub woofer is kinda crap and so are the tweeters) I replaced all, and there is no problem. I started with the sub and the amp. If you really want, you can have them replace with another that will fit in the same compartment but I did not. I got a 12 and a box and disconnected the factory. Sound systems are sensitive when you mess with one part and try to leave the rest alone.
