Default Aftermarket Head Unit w/ Infinity Audio

Alright, so I know I should have been a little more patient and asked first before ordering parts, but that's in the past now and returns are a thing.

I have an '05 GT Convertible with an RBQ head unit and the Infinity audio system. I am unsure of the specific manufacturer for the amplifier itself. I have obtained a PAC C2R-CHY4 wiring harness to pair with an Alpine CDE-163BT head unit. I've taken the time to read both manuals thoroughly and ensure that all available wires between the two harnesses match up. Now my current issue appears to be where the PAC harness attaches to the factory plug; it seems that the left side set of 4 pins doesn't match up with the pins on the factory plug which manifests in having no power to the head unit.

I understand if this information is a little barebones at the moment; I am hoping that some of you in the community could help me identify my starting point for getting this addressed. It could be as simple as I got the wrong model number harness. Let me know what you think or if you want details. Thanks!

It looks like you might have gotten the wrong adapter as this website says that the one you got is for '07 & Up with the CANbus interface:

Thanks for the response. I suspected that might be the issue, but I haven't been able to come up with any resources on an alternative for a proper connection. Places like Crutchfield seem to only have bypassing the amp as a solution, but I'm hesitant to believe that is the only solution.

With that being said, I've been all over the forum looking for answers and I can't really find another example of my use case other than a thread from 2010 that seemed to go unsolved. A link to that thread is below:

2005 Dreamcruiser Convertible, changed head unit, no audio. Help!

I have other examples of installs, but these are all on 2nd Gen Cruisers that either have no amp or they use the Boston amp (not sure if they all do or not). Would anyone have resources on the pinout of the connector on the Infinity equipped Cruiser, any recommendations on the proper harness if it exists? I know there is an Axxess made harness, but I suspect I will have the same problem. Would it help if I provided pinouts of what I have currently? I'm not opposed to moving pins in a connector if that's what it takes to line everything up. I should also probably clarify that I have looked through the factory service manual as much as possible, but have found nothing on the Infinity system and the amp.
