dont start worrying too much yet, i had the exact same problems you did and mine works perfectly now...
first of all.. the antenna, yes you need an adapter. goto your local circuit city, theyre pretty much guaranteed to have the adapter you need.. shouldnt be more than a few bucks
2ndly, that extra plug in the picture, leave it, i didnt plug it into anything, because there was no where to plug it, my thoughts are that it has something to do with the car being prewired for the security system, but im not positive. the other purpose for this wire could be to power another AM antenna, because i get reception on my AM, but not perfect. and our cars are equipped with nume antennas
lastly, as for not getting any sound from either sources on your receiver, i was in this pickle. the harnesses i used with my installation werent properly configured for my bmw, and i had to slightly modify it. it has to do with the ANT Power On, and other leads. i had a bunch of posts on this earlier, ill see if i can dig up that thread for you and post a link....
