I am installing a alpine into stereomy passat wagon(92) they gave me a wiring harness #BHA1784 from best buy canada , the problem is the factory plugs do not match is there another model to fit ,any tricks you guys or ladies have could you let me know
if your passat has aktive system; most of them if not all of them did back then; the door mounted speaker has a built-in amplifier. that speaker feeds the front dash and rear tray mounted speakers for each side of the car.
if you unplug or the door mounted speaker stops working; tha complete side of the car has no sound.
with that said; 99.9% of the time when a different deck is installed on te passat cars; i am trying to install a b4 souind system in my 91 so i can gain cd controls or even a deluxe mk3 deck to gain aux input; it requires the rewiring of each speaker individually to by pass the door mounted amplifier/speaker...
