Default Sc1 2001 aftermarket Stereo problems

i am having a problem installing an after market radio xdm260 I've done the wiring etc.. but it doesn't seem to work, the back part of the radio has a flashing red light which indicates its on.
But the front part of the radio (the interface) does not work.
i don't know why, i connect the wiring and i hear the speakers make a synchronising sound but nothing else and i don't see a display.
I've uploaded the wiring i did please help me to see if i messed up anything.

Also the 4 wires on the harness i didn't know what to do because there were no wire for me to connect them with, also the very last picture shows this metal kind of wire and i don't know what to do with it since i couldn't see any connection for the back part of the stereo

Any help will be really appreciated since i do miss having music in my saturn
Thanks

That's a ground wire. Easiest thing to do is replace that spade end with a loop end and pick any of the screws on the frame to attach it to. Might be the reason it's not turning on, it's not fully grounded.

Should be good for '00-'02 S-Series:

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

Thanks for the info, it turns out I already have the ground wire wired in the car. Still no luck

so the best option is to just take it to a radio shop since they are the experts, i just waned a little project on my hands since I've had a lot of spare time, but it turns everything i did was correct it was the acc module which didn't have a wire but the store sorted something out, and then i finished the installation so I'm happy now but i appreciate your help

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
