Radio Wiring Adapter
Are you planning to replace your SVX's factory radio with a new, after-market one?
This wiring adapter will make your installation MUCH easier. Simply solder or crimp the wires to your new receiver's wires, and plug in to the radio connector in your SVX.
If you've looked into replacing the SVX radio, you may have discovered that nobody makes a wiring harness that fits the SVX. Even worse, at least one of the harness manufacturers listed a part for the SVX in their catalog that does not fit! Up until now, the only solution was to "hard-wire" a new receiver into the SVX — either cutting off the factory plug or splicing into the factory wiring.
After considerable research, I have put together a solution that does fit. My adapter is better quality than what the harness manufacturers would have made had the SVX been produced in larger numbers.
Harness has 15 wires:
Detailed installation instructions are provided online (see the link below).
Note: Most new head units require an antenna extension cable to reach the SVX's antenna plug. I have 18" extensions available for $3.00 when purchased with a harness.
Please note: Because stereo installers have been cutting the factory radio connectors out of SVXs, if you are not the original owner you should check to be sure your SVX's radio connector is still intact (especially if your SVX already has an after-market radio, or has a stock radio that doesn't work). See this guide which details how to remove your radio...
