I have a 2005 Impala 9C3 car, & I want to install my 2 way radio in the car. I've read where there's wiring in the car under the dash on the pass side for this purpose. If I try to put my hand under the pass side carpet w/o removing it, I can feel a huge wiring harness there, but I'm afraid to pull on it & screw things up. However, I recently saw a wrecked similar 9C1 at the local U-Pick, & the carpet was gone, & there was the wiring I needed. So does anyone know if that huge harness under the carpet is what I need, & is it safe to try to pull it out from under the carpet? By the way, the car has 12 volts in the trunk to mount a trunk mounted radio, but my radio is a small 1 piece unit. GARY
I just went down with a flashlight & that panel came off real easy. It's obviously been off before. The wire was there, & yes, that's the wire that goes under the carpet. I didn't see the connector, but it's probably wrapped with electrical tape. I'll look again tomorrow when the sun is up. Thanks. GARY
In my 9c1 there was a thick black wire that was constant negative, a thick red wire that was constant positive, and a thick green wire that was positive that only was on when the key was in the "ON" position. That should get you where you're going.
Don't dis ma base man! Besides it's human nature to complain. When one starts doing it the rest follow.
