All the ones I have found like that one have the wrong plug type. I was able to get it working today. I had a subwoofer plug that had two RCA outputs and two wire taps. I was able to pull the pins out of the plug and used some shrink wrap to insulate the pins and bind them together, was able to plug them into the camera harness. I now have backup camera on my new Kenwood. Who knew factory speakers could sound so good.
Took me about 4 hours to put it all together. I started with soldering up the harness, then disassembled the dash after getting the radio ESN since it still has a trial on it. Then I plugged it all in and tested it. Took a few different tries to get the camera to come up, found out the shield should not be grounded, once I found that, it came right up. Then I fished the GPS antenna through the dash, up towards the windshield. There are panels that pop off at either end right in front of the passenger and driver. I was able to feed it up through that, then fish it under and through the defroster vent. I have to bend the plate to fit the dash so it can be permanently attached, but that is all I have left. The second USB port is fished over to the glove box, and I may make a mount of some sort for it, or just leave it loose.
There is an OBDII harness as well, that I fed up and under the panel, got it all plugged in then shoved the entire mass, including the Maestro RR and SiriusXM unit into the opening and after some cussing and swearing, found the alignment pins for the dash kit are flush with the mounting lugs, and the truck has that part raised. Once I snapped the pins off it fell right in. I will get a pic tomorrow, it got dark and is raining like nutz here.
What I like, I no longer have the SCT plugged in and visible to all, I can look at the Kenwood for the gauges now. I also have real tire pressures, and not just the idiot light. Since it uses Garmin for the Nav, real time speed is shown, which is nice because the truck is off by 2.5 MPH @ 60. I just need to get the Sirius activated now and learn all the features of this new radio.
