Anyone know of a compatible radio harness adapter for this? If not, are there any wiring/color diagrams out there for the car radio harness? I've tried searching for both without any luck.

No nav, and I'm trying to connect it to just a Dual DXRM57BT.

I have that harness (without the black box because I don't have navigation, unless I do need it...), but it doesn't work.

The box provides switched power to the red wire of the radio. You will have to find a switched power source to connect to the radios red wire. That box provides switched power as well as the connections if you had a nav unit.

Yes I noticed that the harness' red ignition wire wasn't going directly to the main female connector. So I guess I actually needed the black nav box... Would it still work to connect the radio's red wire directly to the car's radio harness (i don't mind cutting the car's harness). Actually could I just do the entire thing without the harness?

Find a switched power source and connect your radios red wire to that. You already have the harness, why would you even want to cut the plug off your car?

Didn't realize I needed the black nav box (which costs $30 more), and I've already cut into the car's harness. Hindsight's twenty twenty...
I really don't mind doing it without the adapter harness. Would anyone happen to have the wiring diagram for the vehicle? I have the speakers figured out, but I'm still uncertain about which vehicle wires to connect the red and yellow radio wires to. Here is the aftermarket radio's wires:

And thanks for the help...

There is not a suitable wire in that harness to connect to your radios red wire. You will have to find a fuse in the fusebox that only gets power when the key is turned on.
