Yea, I'm hoping someone knows, I've looked around on the web to no success.

I need to get two wires for my new deck connected still and the speed wire is the same color as one in that connector, not that it means anything but... wishful thinking I guess.

Gotta get a wire to the engine speed sensor for more accurate GPS readings but have no idea where that is located. Also have to get a wire all the way back to the reverse light to trigger my backup camera or find which relay that is on and wire it in the dash.

There is a second connector on the stock harness, what is it??? See pic below:
So what does it do?

Speed / parking break? Stock subwoofer connection? Ideas?
Can you clarify what the wire colors are? I was looking at a wire diagram and I do not see any purple wires. Also, is that one wire, yellow with red stripe or vice versa?

Those are you dimmer/dash light wires.Older models had a slave cd player that plug plugged into to control the lights on the unit.

If you test the wires with the parking light on.One stays 12v & the other goes from ground to about 10v positive.


If you wanted you could run gauge lights with those wires as long as they use a bulb & not LED's.
