Thats right! Part 1 in our audio install series. In this video we’re pre-building a plug & play harness to install a touchscreen & steering wheel control interface, connected to the factory harness.
This makes the job of installing the new unit easier; with a tidy professional result and eliminates potential wiring glitches. Well worth spending the extra $30 for the adapter plug & joiners.
1. Buy quality crimpers and side cutters, after breaking/throwning your 3rd blunt cheap pair you could have paid for them and they’ll last a lifetime
2. Grab a few rolls of quality electrical tape, you’ll be using a lot of it for making harnesses
Parts Used: Metra 70-7552 wiring harness, 40-NI12 Antenna Cable, Pioneer AVH-X2700BS wiring harness, PAC SWI-RC & harness is what we’re using; the Metra part number will obvious change depending on the make/model/year of your vehicle.
