I've got a 2002 WRX sedan that I took the OEM head unit out of a few months back. However, I blew the amp on my subwoofer and the head unit doesn't work well with just the OEM speakers. The OEM head unit sounds better.
The problem is, when I replaced the wiring harness, I neglected to save the old one for the original head unit. Is this something I can go to Wal Mart and get or will I have to order through a Subaru dealership, or what?
Basically what I need is the males that go into the females on the stock head unit. When I installed the aftermarket head unit, I unplugged the males from the stock unit and then uncrimped them from the car's wiring. Then I crimped on the aftermarket wiring harness and forgot to plug the males back into the stock unit before storing it away. I must have thrown them out by accident.
i would find a wiring diagram and start from there.
if you dont have the stock conectors, then i think the only place to get them would be the dealership.
and (FYI) a 5-10 dollar wireing kit would have saved you a lot of headace.
I bought the wiring kit. This is what I did with it:
With old unit and original wiring:
With new head unit and wiring kit:
So I called the dealership. They can sell me the whole front-end wiring harness for 300 bucks. I'll try a salvage yard.
ahh i see not as bad as cutting the harness but it puts you in the same situation. I would say a salvage yard would be your best bet other than the dealership otherwise look around on the net sombody might have what you want.
Just checked a salvage yard. They want a hundred bucks for that part??
