Aftermarket Stereo's - Helpful hints



The stereo in the cruiser is knackered + i've got a new one.
Have checked slee off road and a few other sites for info and have
scheduled a few helpful hints
If anyone has done the job and have anything to add - please do.
Toyota Land Cruiser has in it's wiring harness 3 plugs for the stereo.
The one that the factory uses in the stock stereo will not be utilized
when installing an aftermarket stereo but rather the other two will be
When purchasing your stereo from your local stereo shop purchase the
factory Toyota wiring plug kit (usually about $10-$15). This plug kit
will use the other two plugs in the wiring harness.
One major tip when installing an aftermarket stereo is that you will
want to wire in a separate power source not the factory one as it will
pull too much power from the engine bay fuse that controls your factory
alarm, interior lights, factory clock, etc..
As soon as I got my cruiser I replaced the stereo. I went to
halfords to buy one and the guys there knew what they were on, despite
their ages. They got in for me the right adaptor lead set and it
worked first time. I did no other mods to the wiring.

No honestly Halfords are the plug and play experts - have to be, anything
else is too taxing for the fitters skills.
