There is a harness up in the upper right corner of the opening. Unplug that, and use the harness that came with your dash kit for Toyota. It will be the same as a Non-JBL system. Hope this helps, PM me if you have questions.

you need to get a harness that plugs and plays with your stock one. so you do have to splice stock wires. for the wires missing if you track that harness it will lead to near the glove box thats where you find the second wire that you will need. your aftermarket harness comes with two plugs

I bought my harness at Walmart for less than $9.
You only need one harness for import car, you will see if it fit on the back of the product (list of cars).

it's something like that http://walmart.scosche-cars.com/product ... tID=896348

It's easy to install with that, no soldering, no fire risk, a clean job.

go to best buy or any car audio place and buy the universal wiring harness for toyota 93+. from there you just color match and butt connect all those wires to the wiring harness that comes with your receiver then you just plug in and voila. also there is a factory amp, you must disconnect that.

to get to it you just take out the stock unit, reach inside towards your right and the two plugs to the stock amp should be right there, unplug those and youre good. lol i just did figured all this stuff out last week.

Also, for your antenna, i dont think there is an adapter for it should it not fit into your new receiver. All i did was plug it inthere until i got clear reception and then i electrical taped it

your welcome.

Nothing will burn, it's a plug adapter man, you can buy one made with gold if you want, but it will not improve the safety or sound better then the walmart stuff. :D

haha well thats exactly right, it "is" a plug adapter. Which is by no means "soldered" for a perfect a connection. When you are using plugs you need to insure that the pins are not gapped too far apart so that the female plug doesn't create an intermittent problem with a speaker not functioning properly or losing power when you hit a bump.

Scosche is notorious for manufacturing harnesses at a poor quality rate. Metra on the other hand is guaranteed for performance.
