Default Needs help with wiring a radio.

So i just bought a Kenwood DDX318 radio from crutchfield and they gave very good instructions until it got down to wiring.
iv got the GM VT-GMOS-04 kit, GM dash kit, and the GM antenna adapter.
This is my first time with this sort of stuff so even the basic help is appreciated.

the wires are all basically labeled, so what are you asking?

Well i cant match up some of the labeled wires because the colors dont match the wires coming from the harness and Interface. And i cant seem to find anything that tells me what the wires coming from the Interface do.

Problem-
I cant seem to figure out where the steering wheel remote imput connects to in the harness. I would like to retain that ability.

There is a green wire and a green(purple) wire coming from the interface that i have also no clue where they connect

I cant find where the pwk SW wire connects to in the harness either. (On the radio it has a female end, but they gave me a single wire with one side that has the male end)

One of those green wires is the parking break wire. Probably the all green one. You can run a relay with it so you can watch movies while driving. Or music videos.
