Okay there are 2 possible solutions depending on your problem

Number 1
If its the lead that plugs into the back of the headunit then this is the page you need Click Here All you have to do is choose the one you need! just look at how many pins there are pretty simple to work out

Number 2
If its the lead that plugs in from your car loom to the headunit loom then you need to look here and pick out your car

This will solve your problems :)

Hello incandescent,

I'm not completely sure of what the problem is. Normally, when you purchase a receiver, you get a wiring harness with it. That harness is meant to be plugged into the receiver and connected into the vehicle wiring according to the diagram in your manual.

If you did not get the correct harness, for the Kenwood KDC-MP225 you can get a replacement here: http://www.partstore.com/Part/Kenwood/Kenwood/E30632205/New.aspx?ModelMfgName=Kenwood&ModelBrandName=Kenwood&ModelNumber=KDCMP225

You also need the color codes of the wiring coming from your vehicle's original radio harness. And unless, you are willing to cut or tap into the vehicle wiring, it's best to purchase an aftermarket harness specific to your vehicle. These are made by Metra, Scosche, and others, and are well worth the $10-15 they cost. You simply plug it into the original vehicle wiring and match up the function of each wire according to your Kenwood manual. You can find a harness for most every make and model of vehicle here: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/cat_i95_wiring-harnesses.html. SonicElectronix also has replacement harnesses for many aftermarket receivers, including the Kenwood.

Hope this helps. If it does, please rate as "FixYa".

Different or additional harness needed to install a Kenwood kdc 255u radio/cd player in a 2005 Scion XB?


Hi there,

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..

Cheers,

Scott

Wiring diagram for a kenwood KDC MP232 to a 2003 chevy malibu


Aftermarket cd players are all universal and have the same colors. You need to go to your local car audio store such as walmart, bestbuy, ect and buy a wire harness adapter. Then all the wires are color coordinated to make it easy, just wire colored wires together and plug in. If I have helped please leave positive feedback. Thanks
