I have a couple of quick questions on my AVIC-F700 install...first off, I can't find the brown key harness wire coming out of the column...any advice there?
Also, where does the blue wire coming off of the antenna adapter go? And I assume that the ground coming off the unit goes straight into the harness, and that I can splice the mute and parking brake wires directly into the black ground wire? Finally, any hints on where the find a reverse signal? I took the dead pedal off, but I'm not having much luck finding the black/blue wire down there.
Thanks for bearing with a rookie

The next wire is an ignition source. Many people will often go to the last 10mm nut on the distribution block labeled '75x'. While this is a safe location, I usually only suggest that as a source for radar detectors. The reason being is that it only shows power when the key is on. The original radio is nice that it turns on when the key is moved to the on position and stays on even after the key is moved back to the 'off' position. It turns off only when the key is removed from the key cylinder. An aftermarket radio can be made to function the same way, but it requires you to tap into the key sense circuit at the key harness. The key harness can be found exiting the black plastic column cover at the upper left hand side. Disassembling the driver's underside dash will gain you access to that wire. In the next 'weird perspective' picture of mine that no doubt many have seen, you'll see the Brown/Red pulled out, looped, and ripe and ready to be tapped into. (Don't forget to throw an inline 5 amp fuse on it and then route your wire into the radio cavity for the radio)
