First post (I think) and it's a request for help.
I drive a 2000 LS400 (Millennium Edition) with the Nakamichi deck and Amp.
Never mind that the right speakers (front and rear) cut out for long periods of time.
It could be the deck, a short in the speaker wire, the amp, etc.
But I want to start with replacing the deck for other reasons:
The car only has 160,000km and I just replaced the water pump and timing and drive belts so it runs very smoothly and it's time to make it a bit more homely, starting with a modern deck with front usb support.
Here's my issue:
There are no wiring harnesses for the nakamichi setup.
I ordered a deck and mounting kit.
I have the nakamichi wiring setup PDF that I believe user KANSAS posted.
I know I have to connect the car's wires to the harness that comes with the new deck (or it's RCA cables).
1. I want to know what to connect to what.
Do I use RCA cables or the harness cables? Difference?
The deck is a Kenwood KDC-BT858U http://www.kenwood.com/usa/car/recei...58u/index.html
2. I don't need my CD Changer, can I remove it?
What can I do with the remaining empty space? Storage?
3. Any other pertinent information I should know? I want it to come out perfect the first time.
Thanks and this is a great forum!
