    Install Kits adjusted automatically

    The originally selected install kit sold by the Sales person, needed to be changed out to a different version. Until the expert install person actually sees the actual install, it may be difficult to select the right one, so this wasn't a surprise, (it appeared most install kits are the same price, so it wasn't a price change in my case.) Advantage to having kit installed by professional at the store with variety of install kit's available to adjust to.

    Time Consuming Alternative

    I purchased the wiring kit at the same time I bought my new Kenwood GPS receiver. I like my wiring to be clean and neat, soldered and shrinkwrapped. You can do this but the alternative at Pep Boys is far better. You get an end that plugs directly in to your vehicles factory harness, then you get a plug that fits your stereo mfg. the two ends plug together in the middle with a common plug. no soldering, no mess and your done in less than a minute with better than professional results.

    Worth the price

    You end up with a harness on both ends - after matching and attaching the wires using the included diagram. You need this part (get from installation crew). Each wire is clearly identified on one end, then color coded on the other. I spliced with a twist and covered using shrink tube. The wire in this harness is thicker than factory. I can't imagine doing this any other way.

    Did not fit the car it explicitly said it would.

    So, I read the box like 100 times - it specifically said "2000 Ford Explorer". There's nothing in this kit that fits - in any way, shape, or form - a 2000 Ford Explorer. I took it back, and when returning, there was actually someone in the car audio area (finally!) that looked up the product that actually did work. It was not on the shelf, seemed like something the installers only had.

    The plug fits like a glove and the wire color coding matches up with aftermarket stereos. The wires come pre-stripped which saves lots of time as well. The instructions are clear and easy to read and follow.

    Keep the install simple

    Using a wiring harness between your factory connections and your after market radio makes the install so much easier. You do not need to cut your factory wiring with this product. Simply wire this harness to your radio and then plug the harness into the factory connections. It's that simple.

    Wired directly to my factory wiring harness

    Wired directly to my factory wiring harness, all I needed was a pair of wire strippers and some butt end splicers. Total install with this kit took about 15 minutes on my own with an additional 30 minutes of wiring which was remarkably easy

    This furnace seems to work well however I did have an incident where the stereo did not food up when I started the car, this only happen once so I don't know if it had anything to do with the harness for the stereo. For now I'll just say it works fine.

    The cables I never see but totally dependent for my music, This allowed my Kenwood to hook up to the factory Ford leads and the rest is a beautiful song.

    This product doesn't fit the Ford excursion as it says it does. Has to cut all the wires from the original connection and hard wire for my factory DVD player to work through my radio.

    Great for plug and play after market radios

    This is the way to go. When reselling a car, to have the original components is very important, this is great not to have cut wires. The new owner may want to go back to the OEM radio. Geek Squad did a great job.

    Hooked up a new radio to my ford windstar with minimum hastle. You just need a few wire connectors and some knowhow and you just follow the colors. Biggest hassle was removing the old unit. So be prepared for that.

    I got this wire harness for the make of car I have. This is a great item to have to help in the installation of a radio. It works good for the connecting of the radio to the factory plug.

    Was not aware of special wiring for my vehicle, once I figured out what I needed immediately went to bestbuy. Had product in stock and worked perfect. Very pleased with entire purchase

    Dunno why, but half the harness was missing and the sticker covered up a cut mark in the bag. Item was likely used by installers but the leftovers were saved for me. Thanks ducks

    Not much a guy can say about a wire kit, I pulled it out of the package, wired it up, plugs fit and my stereo works.

    I replaced a failed factory radio. All speakers work as original so this was the correct part.

    This harness worked very well, although only one adapter was needed. I presume the other side is for an amp
