So I finally got my deck and it's burning a hole on my kitchen table.
I have watched a few instructional videos on YouTube for getting the radio out. That really doesn't seem very difficult.
The problem I'm having is decided which Harness to use. I bought two brands. Metra and a Scoshe. There is one wire in different positions between the two.
Metra has a orange/black wire (next to the yellow, below orange) and the Scoshe has a black (on the edge, below red). If both the orange/blak and black wires were present they would be ... Yellow, Orange/Black, Black.
The wiring part for the speakers is pretty easy. No sweat there.
Also I got the $20 parking break pulse thing, which I will install between the HU and the OEM Harness. The parking brake signal is green and marked, easy enough.
Now the fun part starts. I also bought a AXXESS ASWC (Steering Wheel Control). I want to install that but the wires are really not clear to me at all. The interface has 10 cables. Here is a copy paste from their doc for my car.
Resistance Type Control System YES
Reference Ground Wire Color BLUE
Reference Ground Polarity (-)
Reference Ground Location RADIO HARNESS
Reference Ground Pin # 3
Control Wire 1 Wire Color RED
Control Wire 1 Polarity (-)
Control Wire 1 Location RADIO HARNESS
Control Wire 1 Pin # 4
Control Wire 2 Wire Color GRAY
Control Wire 2 Polarity (-)
Control Wire 2 Location RADIO HARNESS
Control Wire 2 Pin # 12
Then they link to this doc. Still not sure which cable I'm supposed to connect where on the harness. Or when I pull out the stock radio there will be a 3rd wiring harness for SWC?
On the 2007 Pathfinder should the radio go in without any dashboard modification? Do I just screw into the stock braket?
One last thing, the microphone that comes with the unit, how do I run it up next to the mirror? Up the pilar? How do I get the cable there? Behind the glovebox? Does the pilar just pop off or is there a trick to getting it off?
Thanks in advance!
