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.

does this harness work with factory amplifier?
josh t on Jan 3, 2015
Best Answer: Hello Josh,

No. The FD16B will NOT integrate the OEM Amplifier. Assuming the PLUG is correct, then you seek the Metra 70-5519. However, if you aren't sure, use the METRA Fit Guide to establish the appropriate harness - .

bill b on Aug 21, 2014
Best Answer: My friends truck also had two plugs. This harness will work, you may need it installed by a shop however as they may need to merge wires from the other plug.
