I recently bought a soundbar for my TJ. It didn't come with one stock. I got it put on but can't get the wiring figured out. I found the wires that i need but they are in a connector and i'm hesitant to cut them. I experimently pressed the soundbar wires to some exposed metal on the proper wires and didn't get any sound. In the connector block under the driver's side dash is an empty slot. I was wondering if this was for a soundbar that was to be hooked up at the factory. If so can i buy one? It would make it much easier to hook this thing up. i got some pretty crappy instructions with the soundbar and even if you can tell me how a stock bar is installed will help.
Thanks in advanced.
Thanks in advanced.
Im guessing that this is an aftermarket soundbar and not oem? If so what brand is the new bar? I just replaced my oem bar with a vdp bar and I just ran the wires directly to the headunit so i wouldnt have to cut any of the factory wiring. Mine came with some pretty bad instuctions as well.
I just put a oem soundbar in my TJ last week that didnt come with one. I went to the dealer to see if I could get the wiring harness, but they didnt have it. It is part of the main wiring harness and cant be bought separtely. So I cut off the female end at the soundbar and made my own connections, ran the wire down the roll bar, along the drivers side and made the connections under the dash. I think all the speaker wires were in the red connector. So I just tapped into them. The wires for the light were coming into the back of the connector block, but there was no connector there, but it still worked.
Yeah it's a vdp. So all the wires for the speakers and lights i need are in the red connector? Did you cut the wires on the connector side and wire all three ends together (cut connector wire and soundbar wire)? Hey adidas69, did your center dash plate have some poorly designed clips that held it on? I changed out the radio for a cd player and they made it really hard to put back on. It still doesn't look like it's on correctly. Thanks again guys.
