Installing a Kenwood DMX706 in a '19 Frontier SV

Post by mjbarr3 »

Hello, Please forgive the ignorance,but I have only done the swap long ago before their were Steering Wheel Controls. Anyway, The SW comes with a cord that plugs into the main controller and then into the HU with a 3.5 m on one end and a blue plug on the other. It also has a Blue/Yellow wire. My question is , Do I need the B/Y wire and the plug or can I just use the plug to the back of the HU. and if I just use the lead with the 3.5m plug , what do I do with the Bl/Y wire ?

Thanks for your help.

It depends on the radio you have. You never use both; You will use either the 3.5mm or the blue/yellow. Tape off the one you don't end up using.

Thank, I'll use the 3.5m plug. I have another question,
the instruction for my HU say that the Bl/yellow goes to the steering wheel remote input. Which wire color would that be on the SW harness ?

Thanks

You will hook blue/yellow to blue/yellow, and tape off the other connector.
