    I am looking for the diagram for the stereo wiring harness. I mean the one that is in the dash that is connected to the back of the OEM stereo.

    I have seen several posts that describe the wiring harness that you can purchase and connect to the OEM one but this is NOT what I am looking for.

    I plan to cut the existing connector off and wired directly to the connector on my new stereo but I can not find the specs any where. I realize this might not be the best option if I want to install the old radio back.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    My question to you is WHY? There's no benefit and the money saved would not outweigh the headache unless you know what you are doing.

    I don't know about the Tacoma but if there are two plugs then one may contain the power and ground and the other would be the speaker connections. Take a test light or multimeter and determine which leads have power.

    DO NOT cut your factory harness.. no reason to really, and it just makes for a PIA later. If you are worried about fidelity you should be running new wire for everything anyways.
    Just use a Metra or Schosche harness adapater.
