I tried to thread jack in another posting, but it didn't work. I am trying to install a high level to low level (speaker wire to RCA) converter so I can hook up my bass shakers in my seats but I need the color breakdown on the back of the head unit so I can splice into it correctly. If someone has the maintenance DVD and can post the colors up, it would be much appreciated. I have the 6disc MP3 changer with sirius radio, no sub woofer. I pull back in to port in a few days and would like to do it then.
FYI, the stereo is VERY easy to access. That trim around the control area is just a snap in piece. Get a panel puller, it pops right out, or you can use a screw driver but be careful to not scratch the plastic. There is enough slack on all the cables that you do not have to disconnect anything. Then its just 4 bolts holding the radio in. Piece of cake. Should take the average person less than 5 minutes to do. There is tons of space in there as well for those who want to add an aftermarket setup with say a blue tooth adapter, HD radio receiver and so on...
Panel pullers can be bought at local auto parts store for 5-10 bucks. They are sometimes found in the rack of "HELP" stuff. Usually a shaped piece of metal with the correct shape for popping the plastic push nuts off. The better one have nice handles-I have cheap and expensive both work well.
My panel puller is a bit different, but was found in the help isle. It does everything, headlight adjustment, door **** clips, windshield clips and so on. It was 7.99 I think. But thanks for the wiring breakdown, I will post some pics when I open it up tomorrow after get home, a very very short how to.
Thanks, it was almost exactly right, the front left was a bit different, but they were smart enough to electrical tape together the associated pairs, so it wasn't too bad. Thanks again for the starting point.
