if you have it as you stated harness first i think you have it wired wrong, the car orange has to go to the radio yellow and the car yellow to the radio red

It's been a while since I've wired a radio, but isn't there also supposed to be a ground wire that runs right from the radio housing to ground, like from a screw on the back of the radio to a screw under the dash?

I might be wrong, but I seem to remember the wires that connect to the wiring harness for the speakers, lights and power, etc. and then an extra wire by itself from the radio to the car ground. Maybe that's just my radio.

Good luck!

Are you sure this new radio works? Is it it new or something you picked up used?
