Question about Kenwood KDC 255U - radio / CD / MP3 player / digital player
I want to install a Kenwood KDC 255u radio/cd player in place of the stock Pioneer unit in my 2005 Scion XB. A local auto audio shop told me I'd need a special harness- a separate purchase, for this installation. Is this true? Thanks in advance!
YES.... to prevent cutting of any factory wiring (this use to be the old install method and requires much more time and expense) and potential electrical fires, you can now buy quite cheaply, what is called a Radio adapter harness.
As you wish to install a Kenwood radio to your Toyota Scion, simply buy an adapter loom which has a 2005 Toyota Plug on one end, with a Kenwood plug on the other (this essentially replaces the wiring loom that came with your Kenwood unit).
So, it's that easy .... Plug and Play.
And... if you sell your Toyota and wish to put your old Toyota radio back in, the original radio just plugs back in. PRESTO !
Hope this helps..

TY TY TY..fixed this right on up. Only suggestion I could make is that a diagram of where the aforementioned buttons are. I did mine at night so the small words were hard to see. I just replaced my battery and cleaned off the cables connectors when this problem occurred. TY so much for this.

No ur radio is fine to fit the wiring harness into ur dodge the wiring has been crossed so it wont work, if u go 2 the Kenwood US site and down load the KDC MP 228 manual it has a good wiring dirgram and with a bit of work u can work out what goes where :0 Hope this helps

if you have the wire connector it's easy.....give the negative conection to the body of the player..find the wire from the battery with has the power supply even when the switch is off..and connect it to the yellow wire.that is for the memory...find the wire which has the power when the switch is on ,and connect it to the red wire from the player....what i mean by switch is the ignition switch... u can easily find the speaker connections...most speaker wires comes as blue,ash,green,white...there are two wires from each colour......
