OEM radio unit install

My Ď10 Sahara came with an after market Sony head unit that, frankly, sucks. Canít read the display, too complicated to navigate, and due to the fact it requires direct connect to the battery, it runs the battery down if the Jeep sits for 4+ days. I have the OEM radio and Iím putting it back in. What I donít have is the OEM connection to plug into the radio. Does anyone have a part number or place I can get an OEM plug/wiring harness? I appreciate any help you can offer.

FYI, I’m putting the actual radio that came with the jeep. It’s the standard am/fm/cd unit. If this matters.

You should be able to just remove the Sony head unit and plug the OEM one back in without any additional accessories, unless I’m not understanding your question

Is the Sony installed with a wiring adapter? If so, you should be able to remove it from the OEM harness and plug that into the original radio.

Sounds like the radio is wired incorrectly if it is connected to the battery at all times and not a remote turn on wire is the first issue. Any Best buy or auto parts store should have the radio adaptor plug that you need.

If it's wired in that badly, the OE connectors are probably hanging there unused.

I'm not wild about Sony units but it sounds like you're also dealing with a bad install.


I would stick with aftermarket (a reasonable unit). A properly installed aftermarket unit beats the crap out of the stock unit.


You also need to make ABSOLUTELY SURE that is the exact unit which came out of that jeep and not just some random unit the seller threw in and TOLD you it was the original.... otherwise the security code for the unit will not match the one stored on the computer and it will not work.


Doubt you will find the wiring harness plug in a store (if it has been chopped off)... or at least you would probably have an easier time finding one at your local auto scrap yard.
