Default Gah. My wiring harness is cut off.

This is what i get for being cheap. I got a new aftermarket HU for my 94 bonne SSei, and i wanted to install it right away. So i pulled apart the dash, unplugged the factory cd player, and then did the unthinkable. I didn't want to spend the $10 or wait 2 weeks to have a wiring adapter shipped to me, so i simply cut the wiring adapter thing off. So i proceeded to wire my new head unit to the wires according to a wiring diagram. But a big problem was the fact that there are more than 1 yellow, red, blue, etc. My question: Is there any way to buy a whole new harness? I noticed that the whole bundle of wires is coming out of a box that says delco (my gain adjuster lever is also hooked into it. is it my factory amp?) and that you can un-clip the whole bundle of wires from the box. Now my radio doesnt turn on at all, and my climate control (digital) is acting very strange. it sometimes just shows three lines and wont let me adjust anything. Could i have blown a fuse, and if so , which one? or is it something far worse.. Thanks

Is this what you need?


You can get this from Auto Parts Fast at RockAuto

As for your climate control, check your fuses

does that come straight from the factory amp? Like is that the connector that hooks into the amp and goes to the gain control, head unit, and whatever else? and if i got that, i could just take my old one out, and plug that one in?

That I could not tell you. I would suggest going to rockauto and taking a look. Then match up what you need. You may also be able to call them and talk to them. I have found them to be a very good place to buy from. Very helpful.

does anyone know how this new connector hooks into the factory speaker leads? im assuming the same wire doesnt run all the way to the rear deck; there must be a connection to speaker wire somewhere.

I have never done work like this so I can't say for sure. But the colors should match up. I would suggest using shrink wrap and solder.

MAN i had EXACT SAME problem, Watch your wiring, i got my wiring correct, Deck worked for 2 months then fried and my climate control showed 3 lines as well. The 10a fuse kept popping because the deck used a bit of energy. the fuse is located @ 9C sector

if you want ill take a picture of the wiring harness connected to the after market deck as soon as i buy a new deck again.
