I have added 2 amps, speakers, and subs to my 2007 Honda Accord. I kept my stock radio to power it because I like the look and functionality. Behind the radio I did not have to splice any wires because I bought a plug that fit into my stock radio and another plug that fits into the stock wiring harness. I connected the power, dimmer, and those types of together between the two plugs. I ran the ground wire back to the same location as the amp ground. I converted the speaker outputs to RCA and ran RCA to the trunk, to the amps. From the amps I ran speaker wire back to the front to the stock wiring harness.
This is all working great and the system sounds awesome. I only have one issue that I am wondering if someone can help me with.
The plugs I bought that attach to the radio and the stock harness did not include the two wires for the steering wheel controllers. So that is my only issue with the install. I have searched and I can't find a harness that includes those two wires and I am wondering if anyone knows where to find them? If they don't exist, does anyone know why?
I wanted to check here before I do the alternative, take out the patch plugs and start splicing the speaker wires from the stock harness.
The steering wheel control wires should be on Pins 8 and 20.
For the harness that plugs into the radio - was this from an aftermarket supplier, or from another Honda?
If it was aftermarket, I would think the plugs would have come with the wires, but I can guess why they didn't:
Essentially, you have three options:
2002 Ford Focus JVC KD-A815 Sony CDX-GT410u Sony XT-100HD HD Tuner Stock speakers, no amp, no subs
Most likely - he used a LOC.
Hope This Helps!!!
