What do I do with this wire? (Stereo Replacement)

Postby diemensional on Mon, 07 Dec 2020 9:03 +0000

Couple weeks ago I bought a second hand 2005 4x4 Dual Cab TD, and I'm looking to replace everything relating to audio, which has all been untouched (i.e. factory) up until now. I've got a new double DIN Kenwood and the two adapter harnesses I need to plug everything in. When I crack open the dash and took out the factory stereo, I was greeted with this bizarre wire latched onto just ONE of the prongs in the female adapter, and I'm currently at a loss as to how to adapt it to my new harness.


The equipment I've got:
1) Kenwood DPX-M3200BT Double DIN Head Unit
2) Aerpro Wiring Harness - Suit Kenwood Head Units,APP8KE5
3) Aerpro Wiring Harness - Suit Toyota, APP141

Apologies if any of this is naff or done before, I'm still new to this.

I'm guessing it's an sr? And that looks to be somebodys crude attempt at wiring up the rear speakers.

The only way to know "What it is", is to trace it all the way to the other end. The tape on it does NOT look to be factory, so like "TOYZ" said, it looks like someones "After-Thought" attempt. Once you've found out what it is, you'll be able to decide what to do with it.
