Alright. I got my wiring harness for the vehicle.

That plugs into the factory wiring, then it has a bunch of wires already stripped for you coming out if it..

But, you can't just wire the HU, you need something that plugs in.

Where do you find a headunit specific wiring harness?

I now understand how you managed to run out of gas in the middle of a lake.

Oh, well I guess I've got to rip it out of my other car then :crap:

No way to buy them separately?


****ing CC stole one of mine then. If they come with the HU, like you say.

(back when I didn't know **** about CarAudio)

Yeah, it was several months ago...

anyway, I just cut it out of my old car.. Eventually it will go back in once I get something nicer for my Suburban.


I just need to know what colors mean what on the Sony HU, all I know is that blue is antenna, and red is power, I guess that's all I need, but I won't have the amps in for several more days..

wait what exactly did you do??

did you just cut the harness end off of the stock wires?

or did you find a harness that would work???

Most aftermarket ish is the same....

whites and grays are front spkrs.... black line is neg solid color is pos.
green/purple are rears
red is switched 12v aka acc.
yellow is constant 12v
black is ground
orange and orange and white are usually illumination or dimmer
brown or yellow and black is usually mute... hardly ever use these
blue and blue/white are usually power antenna and "system remote".. both can be used as remote turn ons for amps or may need to be connected if your vehicle has a stock amp

Factory wires were spliced with the harnesses wires.

So I cut them off, only thing I could do.


Anyway, it's all hooked up now, just waiting on my order from Knu, and my MDF.
