The plugs you linked to are sufficient to connect an aftermarket radio and utilize the factory sub woofer (if present) on a 2008. The 4 pin connector in the vehicle is not needed for a replacement radio. And the small 16 pin connector is used for the factory radio to connect to the MS CAN bus, the aux audio input jack and satellite radio receiver (if present under the passenger seat).

so i ended up with this harness, the android radio works but my sub and rear amp don't seem to be working. Any idea how to get around this?
