Do yourself a HUGE favor. Drop $8 on a radio wiring harness connector. You wire it to the aftermarket radio while sitting at your kitchen table. When done, yank the factory radio and simply PLUG IN the new radio directly into the truck's wiring harness. Done! No cutting of your truck's wires, splicing, taping or hanging upside-down making connections. Plus, when it's time to sell the truck - you can pull out your radio and dump the factory radio back in the truck in no time.
When you remove the radio do not cut the wires. They sell a after market
piece that plugs into the factory wiring harness and it in return has
the wires cut at the end to splice into the radio. They also have a
after market bracket that the after market radio fits into and slides
back into the same place as the old one does with the same clip style.
Your auto parts store should carry everything you need.
haha, yea sorry about that must have clicked the wrong button... if they spliced that old sony harness to the factory harness and did not cut the factory plug off then you can go to you local bestbuy or car audio store and get an adapter for your factory harness... but, if you have the tools and the time, its faster and cheaper just to hardwire on the new one... as for an adapter to convert the old sony to the new sony plug... ive never seen an adapter for that...
The easiest and most efficient way to hook up your old radio harness to a new head is to use a harness adapter that is made for your vehicle.
If you have not cut off the old plug that went into the old radio then it would be a simple matter of plugging the adapter harness into the old plug and color matching the wires from the adapter to the new head wires, which will be the same colors.
If you go on line to - Installer.com you probably will find the correct adapter for your vehicle. There are other on-line stores that deal with adapters, as well.
If the old plug was cut, it may be possible to splice the plug back to the original wires, then it's a matter of plugging the adapter plug into it.
Hope this helps...
Here's a link to the Install Doctor page for Mitsubishi. It's actually best to use an aftermarket wiring harness to avoid the need to cut or splice the factory vehicle wiring. Such harnesses are widely available and very inexpensive. The Scosche MI02B shown here seems to be the correct one for your vehicle. Look at the plug to see if it matches the one in your car.
Yes, but if you don't have a really good diagram for both, you will need to identify each function by trial & error, then remove wires in harness and put them in the right places in the harness plug Use original plug from old seat on new seat.Don't change anything in body harness.
