    ohh that blue connector, thats for the speakers for the radio, i forget if the blue one is for the rear speakers or not, there should be three of those, ones blue, ones white and the other is black, and they all plug into a big connector. The other little black two prong connector is power for the clock.

    let me restate that, if you have a factory 4 speaker setup then there will be the three connectors white,black,blue. The black one is power for the radio, instrument lights and i believe the power antennae if it came optioned with that.
