I forget exactly how it goes, but there's some sort of delete bypass harness? The Sounds used to come through the old factory radio.

Assuming you have the proper dash kit, you simply cannot just wire the single din radio into the OEM radio harness. You need an in-between converter harness. Depending on the year of your car, you may need the radio adapter as well. If you don't have/don't want steering wheel controls, you need this: https://www.amazon.com/Metra-70-2104-Radio-Wiring-Harness/dp/B0014ZP2CQ
Here's the antenna adapter: Amazon.com: Compatible with Chevy Cobalt 2005-2006 Factory Stereo to Aftermarket Radio Antenna Adapter Plug: Car Electronics

If you're unsure of the wiring diagrams, get it professionally installed.
