So the wire harness for the new radio has a connector on each end? I'm seeing butt terminals on the one in the picture. You'll probably just have to cut one of the plugs off and wire it up to a wire harness that connects to the Jeep's factory wiring. Ya know?

Walmart sells the harness, you should be able to find one. If you've got the factory Infinity stereo in your ZJ don't worry about buying one that will bypass the factory amp- just get the regular harness and wire it up using the factory amplifier.

IIRC, if you have the factory amp, you have to hook up the "power antenna" on the Jeep side to the remote turn on from the amp. The "power antenna" on the Jeep side is the remote turn on. At least I had to do that when I had my HU in before I swapped everything out.

Swap the red and yellow wires. That should clear up the issue.
