    VX Executive
    IMG_0868.JPG I have just bought a stock VX executive and am wanting to upgrade the stereo. However all the wiring is different colours to what I was expecting. Have spent the past few hours googling and it would appear that the wires I have in the current stereo don't all match up to what is supposed to be there. Not sure if I'm just useless or if something is actually missing.

    See pic. I have two grey. And would the orange/black be Permanent 12v+

    Bugger! The best option is to get an ISO loom adaptor and a loom adaptor for your head unit, usually costs about $10 from ebay.

    Too late now!

    BTW have you soldered or used any joins under the tape? Best to do it right first time.

    I am sure someone else will post the wiring diagram or a link to one that is already on the site.

    What a mess. Solider and heat shrink will be the best path now as that looks hacked.

    There is a whole series of plug and play options............but that's when you have the original plug still on it. That's how I did it cos I don't know about electrics.
    That's just coloured spaghetti to to me.

    Go to the wreckers and cut off the plug with a length of the loom and solder and heat shrink it to yours .
