Hey Guys,

Hope to get some help, this is my first attempt and upgrading a stereo so please be patient lol.

I am using the GM3000 Wiring Harness from Scosche and I have a Kenwood DDX320BT Stereo. I have a few questions about some of the wiring.

1) The radio has a Reverse Sensor Wire (purple with white stripe), we do have a reverse sensor with the camera in the rear view mirror. The wiring harness does not have a wire for this so I am unsure where this goes (and it is very short.

2) the radio also has a Parking Sensor Wire (light green). It says to connect it to the parking brake detection switch harness, again unsure where this is or if I even have it on the car

3) The stereo has a blue antenna control wire, the harness also has a blue wire however the manual does not label it so I am unsure if this needs to be wired or not.

4) The radio has a dash and dim orange wire, but the wire harness has a single orange wire, do both go to this single one?

I hope that is all for now lol, I appreciate any help anyone can offer.

Just to update everyone, I Wired the illumination lights together, not sure it matters in my case if they work or not, but everything appears to be working as expected. The blue antenna wire I did not need since my antenna is a static one and doesn't move so I taped it off. The purple reverse sensor is to trigger the camera to turn on in the video screen when going in reverse, but since I didn't wire my camera video into the stereo and am using it through the rear view, I also taped this off. The parking break wire I just taped to the side of the stereo so that dvd works while driving. So everything so far appears to be working as expected.

Glad to hear it worked out for you. Now don't be watching tv while driving :happy: My wife would love that for long trips.
Somebody used to sell a cheat to get around the OEM touch screen HU not being able to watch videos while in gear. I don't think it's available anymore.
