    I have a 2008 DC that I put an OEM JBL SAT ready HU in(pulled my stock since it wasn't SAT ready).

    This unit has multiple connectors on the back and I have no clue as to what they are. Anyone familiar with the A51864 unit? I'm curios as to what these connections will do.

    Thanks for the help.

    Blue one looks like the same plug for sat antenna cable in my drivers side kick panel.
    Not sure about the rest.

    I might be wrong but most JBL radio's have a seperate amp, as far at the sat you have to have the XM receiver to make it work.

    So the JBL unit doesn't have the receiver built in? Which is why I thought that blue plug looks awfully familiar to what I just connected to on the kick panel for my external pioneer xm receiver.

    Like I said not 100% sure on it but that blue plug does look like the sat antenna plug. So do you have the JBL radio?

    The one main thing that I would like to figure out is where my steering weel controls plug into. I cut the connector off a while back when installing a different unit, thinking I would never need to put the original back in. Well, hell, here I go now putting the original back in. I just don't know which plug I need to fabricate the connection too????

    Anyone??
