The pre-wiring plug is tied to body somewhere inside of the left hand side
trunk liner.

No, the '96 changer is not compatible with the '98+ radios.
See my web site for info:


On 96-97 models with the Delta CC radio, the CD changer plug is a round
8 pin connector.  On '98+ Concert/Symphony radios, it changed to a 13 pin
square connector.  Not only is the connector different, the control
protocol changed too.
