Thunderbird likely hit it dead on - probably it carried power, left and right channels' audio, etc etc etc for the OEM setup. I cannot see that you'd be able to re-use it for anything, though :crap:

I have a spare male 8-pin sitting in my garage if you need it. My stock Nissan HU AUX IN used that from a CD changer.
If anyone wants it, just pay shipping.

most likely a cd changer cable if it's in a older style nissan, or chrystler...

Sweet thanks a lot bro! That helped a lot. Now that I think about it, I guess the flip down monitor has its own harness. Ill need to find a converter for that.

i know i am just a god at pointing out the obvious. but i only know it kuz it is just like my CeNet cable and like alpines, and any other data cable that the companys use

My initial reaction to it the 1st time I opened this thead was that it looked like the DIN cable that ran the Kenwood 10-disc changer I used to have but that's a 13-pin, not an 8.
