Trying to connect mine, but have no clue how, can someone post a picture of where their sound bar connects under the dash?

The wiring harness should lead to the back of your radio. If you plugged it in and it doesn't work it may be disconnected or you may have a broken connection or cut wire somewhere.

Well the wires to the soundbar were cut by the PO. I was just trying to see where I need to run the wires from the sound bar to actually splice the wire and input the soundbar wires

When he cut them did he leave anything to work with? If not, you may have to run wire.

I still have the wires that run from the sound bar down to the bottom of the dash, but don't even know where to look to find the wires I need to connect them to

You may have to look up the schematic online to see what goes where on the wiring harness. If he just cut them at the sound bar the remainder "should" go to the back of the radio. Hopefully this is the case and you can just splice into what's there.

Again, "The wiring harness should lead to the back of your radio."

What head unit do you have. Stock or aftermarket?

Do you have the same color wires at the back of the head unit that are going up under the dash?

Stock radio, looks to be same colors. I am not proficient in wiring.

I'm a dumb dumb when it comes to wiring but if I can figure it out I'm sure you can. Splice into what's there... if that doesn't do it you'll have to chase it down or run new wires.

Your stock radio should have just 4 speakers output. 2 front dash and 2 rear for the soundbar(left/right). If it's a factory soundbar, then just match up the wires and reconnect the wires. You can pull your radio and easily see the cut wires if you can't access with the radio intact. What colors are your soundbar wires?

Not at home and can't remember, but I pull the radio and the wires off the harness run down behind the dash tightly wrapped in tape and such (they haven't been cut up that far) should I be looking for wires on the passenger or drivers side because I have been looking from the drivers side and have found nothing cut

Do you have a multi meter? Pull the speakers and check continuity or each wire between the speaker and the connector at the head unit.

The wires run up the drivers side. They start at the soundbar, run down the rollbar and run to the front of the vehicle directly under the driver's door. They then go straight up into the dash into a junction block directly behind your front left speaker. From here, they probably join up with the other radio wiring and run to the back of the radio itself. The colors should be brown/white, brown/yellow, blue/white, & blue/red behind the stereo, but may change slightly at the junction block. I know my soundbar has the same colors at the speakers and at the radio.

If you have the soundbar end of the wires, where are they located? If it is in front of the door, than the other end is probably straight up into the dash near the junction block - remove the speaker to gain better access the area.

I appreciate the info, my sound bar wires were laying in the center console area under the rug, looks like someone was going to wire it but didn't? All the wires at the back of the radio are there and connected, I will look at this junction box, should be able to find my rear speaker wires there, gracias

The harness will not lead straight back to the radio. It travels up to the front of the vehicle with other wires, like your brake lights, and rear wiper/defrost wires. I just looked up under my dash, and saw the wires go directly into the bottom red plug of the junction box, the same colors as I listed above. Ensure your wires that you have are the same colors as I listed, otherwise someone did something really funky with the wiring.

I did not trace the wires after the junction block, but they likely just join the other radio wiring and run to the radio from there. Good luck!

If your wiring color scheme are the same as what eboven listed, then what you can do is pull both front dash speakers out to confirm the color scheme. That would leave the other 2 pairs available to hook up to the sound bar. If the soundbar wires color scheme matches what you see at the radio, then just cut the wires at the radio and hookup to the soundbar speakers. That will save you from fishing around for the PO cut wires.

Uggg, The plug for junction box (the bottom plug) is not there...cruel world!!! Anyone know what I would call this plug so I can see about maybe getting another?

My soundbar doesnt have any power to the driverside rear speaker. I swapped the speakers and I get the same result. FWIW my wiring was brown/yellow and blue/yellow

What sound bar do you have? How many speakers?
