    Default Tundra Radio Wiring

    Does anyone know what wires coming out of the radio are for the speakers? Before it gets to the amp?

    What color are the aftermarket stereo wires you need help with?
    Then we can tell you which wires they go to on your Truck harness.

    The wire colors on all the diagrams I've found don't match the colors in my truck???
    I've hooked it up and have figured out the Power, Illum., Acc. and Ground...I actually get motion on the display, but no sound...
    The speaker colors for my aftermarket HU are: Front Lft +Wht -Wht/Blk
    Front Rt +Gray -Gray/Blk
    Rear Lft +Grn -Grn/Blk
    Rear Rt +Violet -Violet/Blk
    I'm so close any advice will help...
    Thanks

    I would like to know this also, on aftermarked systems a low level signal is sent to the amp, but does the factory system have high level signals to the amp? If thats the case you would need to remove the amp and spice the wires.

    I believe crutchfield, or any other stereo retailer should sell wiring harness adapters. It makes this job incredibly easy and you go cutting your trucks wiring to pieces.

    i know people are cheap nowadays. but what is your time worth?? for the amount of time youve spent chasing wires, it wouldve probably been worth it to just buy the scosche wiring harness. its only $100.

    so after doing some research and a subscription to TIS I found the info I needed. First The AC and DC are wired differently, they have different harnesses. The system configuration is pretty advanced for a stereo because of the AVC-LAN communication, but when hooking up a new HU, that wont matter. Basically the factory radio sends a 2 channel low level input to the amp along with 12v constant and switched and a few other things. The amp then of course sends that to the speakers. All the speaker outputs are located at the 12 pin connector that hooks to the amp. When you remove the old radio, at larger 20 pin connector, look for a L-Y-BR wire or pin 1. That is the constant battery. The ACC is GR-BR wire or pin 11. The illumination is the G-BR wire or pin 2. Ground is BR pin 20. So the 4 wires are all you need to power your new HU. Next run 4 pair of wires for each channel to the old amp location. (if you have tweeters in the door they are already wired in parallel with the door speakers.) Then splice the correct wires together. (RL+ is pin 2, RL- pin 7); (RR+ is pin 3, RR- is pin 8); (FL+ is pin 4, FL- is pin 11); (FR+ is pin 5, FR- is pin 12.) If you are looking at the connector the upper right is pin 1, upper left is pin 5, lower right is pin 6, lower left is pin 12. The numbers go in order. so 5,4,3,2,1 then bottom is 12,11,10,9,8,7,6. So instead of spending 100 or more bucks on a harness just splice 4 wires for the HU and 8 for the speakers.

    i hooked up an aftermarket stereo in my 06 AC and it sounds great. i removed the factory amp from under the passenger rear seat and used the factory amp wiring harness but reindexed the wires to be used as speaker wire to connect from the radio to the speakers. my only problem now is i have no A/C bezel lights or instrument panel(gauge cluster) lights. does anyone know of a solution. all help will be greatly appreciated

    The wiring for the FACTORY RADIO had a GREEN WIRE going to it, so does the A/C control panel.
    This GREEN wire will test as a ground with the headlights off. When you turn the Headlights ON it will switch to a 12v power, this is the signal to the toyota radio and A/C control panel that the lights are on and that the radio should dim and the control panel should light up

    The Toyota wiring also has a WHITE wire with a GREEN Stripe, this wire went from the radio to the A/C integration control panel and is the ground from the Rheostat which is what adjusts the brightness of the radio, and A/C panel.
    You need both of these wires for the ILLUMINATION circuit to work.

    Is the rheostat turned down?

    Do not connect the 2 wires. That will cause a short.
    I have never experienced this issue using an aftermarket radio, so someone else is going to have to chime in.
