    Hello, maybe one of you can help me diagnose my issue here with my head unit. My 2012 Taco came with a non-touch screen unit and I have since installed 2015 head unit:beavisd: into my truck. The yellow circle being the cable in question. It does not fit into anything at all and I believe it is either for the USB plug in (because it currently has no power) OR for my Satellite (Sirus/XM) which also does not work or have power to it anymore. Red circles are the plug in ports that I don't know what go in them. Any advice on what I can do to get:
    1. Power to my USB
    2. Satellite connection

    ps.. the Red X and the cable below the yellow circle goes to my climate control, please disregard

    Top right should be sat antenna.

    Grey plug in the middle is possibly usb.

    Awesome information :thumbsup:

    Do you know if they make some sort of conversion plug for my blue cable?

    Also, SAT/NAV anyone know of anyone who sells this cable/setup?

    For Sat, get a fakra extension https://www.amazon.com/Eightwood-Sa...1527204155&sr=8-7&keywords=xm+extension+cable and an aftermarket xm antenna. Extension goes into the back of the radio and the antenna plugs into the extension. This should work, just hook it up and test it before you run the antenna outside of the truck.

    Heres a thread on the nav antenna, read thru it https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/wtb-gps-nav-antenna.437105/page-4

    I have no idea about the blue plug.

    Thanks for the link! I'll take a look at it a little bit more and try to figure out which cables and all I will need!

    As for the Fakra Extension, would you happen to have a link to which one? I ask b/c I'm looking at them all and they all have differences between themselves it seems. Something like this? https://www.ebay.com/i/371757864374?chn=ps&var=640734295140

    edit: also, how many inches of it should I get?

    The Amazon link I put in my previous post will work. Or one that looks just like it any length. The XM antenna itself is long enough, but the connector on it won't fit directly onto the radio because of its 90degree angle. Thats where this extension comes in, the straight connection fits right into the radio.

    What part of OC are you in?

    Anaheim "Hills" / Yorba Linda . Didn't realize you were local Anahcrime too! :thumbsup:


    Looking at the Amazon link you sent for the Eightwood Cable, where would that plug into in the rear of my HU? Most of the outlets seem to be shaped more for a square or rounder square insert.
