Can not find a harness that will plug into the back of the Dual XD250 Radio

I can not find a harness anywhere on this planet that will actually fit the plug on the back of the Dual XD250 radio.. I have looked the internet over still no luck. I want to use the radio in a 94 Ford Ranger. Hooking up the radio won't be a problem if I can find a harness that will actually plug into the back of the radio.. Help plz

    UPDATE! First thanks for the link and the idea to contact parts. Problem is solved, I went back to the box and the harness was in the box. The reason it was overlooked the first time was because of the way it was packaged. The box has cardboard filler that was folded up in a configuration to take up room so that the radio would fix securely. It simply looked and felt like nothing other than just that! I took it out and unfolded it and wa-la there was the harness!. Yes I know duh right?? Not exactly so, the way everything was folded it looked and appeared to be just cardboard folded up.. Trust me its one of those things you have to see to understand.. I guarantee I'm not the first nor the last so people having same problem look in the box again!

Installing a Dual XDVD276 radio in a 2005 Chevy Impala without the factory end of the wiring harness.

You will need to splice the wires as it will be hard to find the right connector to attach to the harness wires. Use the wiring diagram for the car (get it at and the one that came with the Dual unit to figure out which wires connect to each other.

Cant find a harness to plug into the back of a Dual XD250 RADIO.

You won't ever. They make a universal harness. You should have a wire harness for your new radio only that was included with the radio. It should plug into the new radio and the other end will just be wires. Then you will need to go to a parts store, ( AutoZone, Oreilly's, Advance Auto, Etc) and but a radio wire harness for your truck. It will have a connector or two that plug into the harness that plugs into the back of your stock radio and the other end will be just wires. you will then connect the two harnesses together by matching wire color. ( EG: Purple to Purple, Gray with black stripe to Gray with black stripe, etc)

Dual xd1222 radio fit a 97 stratus wire harness

Basically the radio will fit but since harness differs between some chrysler products, you need to find the pigtail that will fit the Dodge harness and give bare wires to connect the Dual's respective wires. An example of this can be seen at

I have found similar pigtails at Walmart, Best Buy, and some autoparts stores. Crutchfield includes all this based on your purchase - just a thought.

Install dual xd1222 into a 1993 dodge intrepid

The best way is to get a stereo installation kit designed for your car. It will have the surround for the new stereo to fit where the stock stereo fit. Also, it comes with a wiring harness that you connect the new stereo to then it plugs in to the stock radio plug. Most local automotive stereo stores should carry them.

Radio stolen from a peugeot 306 and all wires cut how can a new one be fitted

Well it all depends on how bad the wires were cut. If you bought a newer radio, they generally come with a harness. Basically a harness is a plug in with a bunch of cables running out the back of it. You can actually just connect the wires for the new radio straight to the wires from the car. A quick fix would just be to twist the wires together and put electrical tape around the bare wire showing.
