Patience young Padawan we're not even sure which wire we can use yet......and we might have to cut some! But if it comes down to that, I'm sure I can come up with an extension harness that would be permanently installed behind the head unit so that cutting will not be necessary.

I ordered a Metra 70-1761 harness plug from Amazon for only $5. All you need to do is connect the harness wires then plug it in and enjoy surprisingly decent sound.

Thanks to all the contributors for providing the information, pinouts and pictures to make this a quick, easy, good enough solution.

Can anyone tell me if the black ground wire in the Metra harness is needed? Canít tell what was done with it due to the angle of the picture. And if itís needed where does it go?

Needed in reference to what? In building an amp bypass plug or for installing a head unit in the dash?

If you're simply building a bypass plug out of a Metra harness, then look at this diagram here,

Remove pins from all other positions.
