Scosche Audio Store

When replacing your factory radio with an after-market car stereo, the Scosche GM02B wire harness is a must for a quick and clean installation. It eliminates cutting your OE radio plug. After connecting it, your install is simple as the wires will color-match and easily connect to the after-market stereo. Without the Scosche GM02B, you would have to cut the OE radio plug and manually test each wire to connect to your after-market receiver.

In addition, because you do not have to cut your OE radio plug off, the GM02B allows you to reinstall your factory receiver if necessary. A great example is if you sold your car, but wanted to keep your after-market radio and re-install your factory stereo receiver. We also recommend the Scosche BOBAZT for a quick connection that is sure to last.

This was easy installation and worked perfectly. I have had other wiring kits sent and did not fit so I had to go out and purchase another one.

Not much too say here

August 25, 2010

It's a wiring harness. It's kind of hard to mess that up. There were a couple of wires that were a little too close in color but other than that it was fine.

I have installed high end car stereos in my cars since I was a teenager decades ago, but have never used a pre-wired compatible connector before (probably because they didnt exist). Sonic supplied this with my purchase of a Jensen VM9022HD receiver and it is terrific. Not only does it save installation time and your back (splicing under the dash wiring), but if you decide to convert your vehicle back to the original equipment, it's clean, quick and easy. Highly recommended, wish I tried it many years ago.

Plugged up to my factory F150 harness and kenwood head unit. There are a lot of wires but easy to install.

Tastes good. Lasts a long time. Remember solder, don't twist!

Neccessary if you don't want to mess up the wiring harness..

February 17, 2012

With a little research you'll find out that this harness can be attached to the head unit outside the vehicle. Then the installation becomes an almost simple swap.
I verified the wires/colors are a match, some were not, but easy enough to get passed it. Then soldered all wires appropriately and secured them with heatshrinkable tube and a few zip ties. Made it look like a professional install, not that it matters since it's hidden in the dash. Took the old unit out and the new one in.

As a note: If you add someting like steering wheel controls you can or need to use more wires out of this harnes. Do some research. I would buy one of these again if I need to, they are real time savers.

does this include the wire for connecting the steering wheel control?
A shopper on Dec 26, 2014
Best Answer: I'm sorry, but none of the vehicles I installed stereos in had steering wheel controls. So if the harness included wires for steering wheel controls I would have not looked for or used them - Sorry.

However, the harness that comes with the stereos sold by Sonic Electronix are awesome And really ease installation.

Do note that some stereos that offer steering wheel controls provide a steering wheel control "option", but do not integrate with OEM. Steering wheel controls.
