When I was replacing my factory radio in my 2014 wrangler with a Sony xav-ax100 I could not find where i am supposed to connect this to keep the factory USB location. Any help?

A
On my 2014 wrangler, there is a unconnect box behind the air and heat buttons. Put you're brake on, move shifter to drive and 4 wheel to low. Pop out the cover over the ac controls and disconnect the connectors. You will see a black box, this is your uconnect. On the left is the usb. Disconnect it and attract it to you adapter then to usb on back of radio

I don't know the vehicle you are using it for but it didn't work for my 2015 Ram 1500 I even tried it on my friends 2014 and it didn't work on his so I thought maybe it was bad so I ordered another and it still didn't work.
