That is only an issue with the cheap harness. There is NO twelve volt switched at the factory harness. I have tried this method as well tapping into an accessory line for the 12 volt switched which you can get from under the steering column or the cigarette lighter. The Axxess harness is correct. There is a disclaimer on the cheap Scoche harness packaging that warns you to verify the wires. The speaker wires are indeed correct. The exception is the 12v switched. Without THAT the radio won't work.If the wires are not correct it doesn't make any difference on how easy it is, confirm wires are correct on input and output devices!
Sorry to hear that. Be prepared to spend a lot more money as they will charge you a sizable markup for the adapter harness plus install.Sorry for my absence. I was never able to figure it out, unfortunately. I returned the stereo and harness and will be investing in a better head unit at a later date and having it professionally installed.
Thank you oh "arbiter of truth." I only made reference to the redundancy of radios and compared it to other markets. Maybe you're one of those people that think that there are thousands of refrigerators and air conditioners being sold by their own manufacturers. In regards to copier/printer repair it's a job that requires the ability to solve problems in a timely manner as I am out in the field going from office to office. That's a much different environment than working in a factory doing QC inspections on an assembly line. I'm sure you were a riot at the water cooler back in the day.It's hard to avoid correcting statements that someone pretending to know has no clue what they are talking about, now if a Lesabre has a paper jam well we know who to get on that. But the post on JVC and Kenwood for a OP that has moved on, wasn't accurate or needed giving the impression that a 3rd party was manufacturering units for them which isn't true.
