Question about Alpine CDA-9851 CD Player
I had this head unit(Alpine CDA-9831) in my 1991 Celica, it was basically plug and play, but im confused on how to install this into my new Celica. I bought a wire-harness from best buy (Metra 70-1761 kit) and their saying i have to cut the alpines harnesses end off and splice this kits wires onto it, so it connects to the OEM pre-exsisting end, but my alpine 9831 has more wires i believe, so im little confused and i don't want to cut my head units wires unless i have too. please help. this car has the 8 speaker setup, not sure if that affects anything or not.

no - the harness is $17 or less.
Even Metra makes one (pictired above)
In my shop I charge $17 for the metra plug.
Metra part# AL16-0001 or al2x8-0001

facing the back of the 7940 the top left corner is pin 16 the top right corner is pin 9. The bottom left is pin 8 and the bottom right is pin 1. Only a few of the 16 pins are used due to this unit only having pre-outs, no internal amplifier on this unit. Pin 1 red (ignition), Pin 2 pink/black (interrupt), Pin 3 orange (Illumination), Pin 8 black (ground), Pin 9 blue (power antenna), Pin 10 blue/white (remote turn on), Pin 16 yellow (battery).
