    Wanting to install own HU

    I have installed headunits in people cars, but they came with wiring harnesses so It was a simple plug and play, but there is non made for the car I am installing in..... So does the headunit come with a plug that goes into the back with a whole bunch of wires that come out of plug. And then it is just simply matching the colors right?? Do all HU's comes witha wiring harness

    Yes, it's basically just matching colors and it's a pain in the ***. I had to do it in my '89 Sunbird.

    the HU only has the wires that plug in to the back of the HU. you need to tap these wires in to the wires in the car.

    no harness, just a bundle of lables wires, you would wire a harness too, to plug it to the factory harness

    Nice Charger

    You're going to have to connect the wires from the back of the head unit to the stock wires like the guys before have already mentioned. Quite a pain in the *** if the wires are short / have little slack. The wires on the back of the head unit might have labels on the wire itself - the color : function is always in the users manual, though.
