    Wiring Harness for 2006 Chevrolet Equinox

    I just recently purchased a Kenwood DDX512 that my friends and I plan on installing ourselves in my 2006 Chevrolet Equinox. I wanted to save a little bit of money by buying it online. I found this: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...l+GWH-404.html, but I don't know for sure that it's what I need. I had read on another site that the harness there was for a 2006 Equinox, but since it was going to cost over $100 at Best Buy, there's no way that seemed right. Any help on the correct wiring harness I need would be great. Thanks.

    You will need a MET-GMOS-01 harness for that car. It runs $100's.

    One more thing. Do you know a good place to buy it on the internet or would I be better off just getting it at a place that installs?

    You may want to consider having a shop install it. I cannot remember if that car does not have an accesory wire on the radio harness. If not then you will have to go to the underdash to find your accesory wire.

    If you purchase the correct harness it will provide you with an acc wire

    this is true but the purpose of the interface when used without onstar or bose is to convert the databus signal into an acc source which is why some of those harness come with that relay attatched

    According to Crutchfield, the GMOS-1 is for keeping OnStar, so I need that one even though I don't have OnStar?

    Re: Wiring Harness for 2006 Chevrolet Equinox

    the 100 dollar harness provides u with the accessory power, the 15 dollar harness also works but u will have to go to the fuse box or the ignition harness to get an igntion wire as the stock harenss doesnt have it the 100 dollar harness interprits a data signal and provides one for u, also witht he 15 dollar harness u will lose ur warning chimes
