A must have!
1996 Chevrolet Corvette
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I actually installed this into my 1996 Corvette convertible not the coupe. If your older C4 Corvette has the Bose system and you want to keep the Bose speakers this is a must have! The only knock is the lack of detailed instructions that come with this harness so I will try to help. The radio in the late model C4 Corvettes is actually more or less a "dummy" unit. The actual tuner for the vehicle is tucked behind the passenger seat under the rear storage container. This harness is designed to run from your new aftermarket head unit back to the wiring harnesses hooked up to the factory tuner. The vehicles stereo antenna lead is also located behind the passenger seat near the stereo tuner. Basically you unplug all of the harnesses going into the stock stereo tuner and install them into this aftermarket harness along with the factory stereo antenna lead which is tucked away closer to the rear of the passenger seat inside the storage compartment (I had to reach in and feel for it to find it). The actual hook up of this harness to your new aftermarket stereo is a breeze. While some folks on here are unhappy with the length of the wires I found that if you do a thorough and proper installation you will use the majority of the wires length. I must say that I was somewhat skeptical about how well this wiring harness would work and difficulty of installing it but after my installation experience it was surprisingly easy and provided me with the results that I was looking for.
Pros: Simplicity and ease of installing the harrness
Cons: Lack of good detailed instructions
