I’m new to the forums, so I hope I am doing this correctly and apologize ahead of time if i’ve posted this incorrectly…
I’m currently working on my griflriends 03 Toyota Solara installing an aftermarket stereo, so that she can finally stop using those poorly made casset aux adapters that have been breaking every other week for her.
Once I had the after market radio installed, everything seemed fine wire wise and speaker wise. The stereo lit up, had power, and the speakers made a very quiet noise on max volume indiciating they at least had a connection. However, the aftermarket stereo still didn’t play any sound? Not through radio, aux, and or bluetooth. So after multiple diagnostics and trials and errors, I concluded her toyota must have an oem amplifier somewhere that wasn’t allow for the music sound to transmit. After a little more research, I discovered there is an amplifier and it is located behind the glove box next to where i’m working, which is at least sorta convenient aside from now needing to bypass it somehow lol?
So the question is, I bought a plug-in-go wire harness from AutoZone compatible with her cars model year and was wondering if I could connect that to the two correspanding harnesses that the amplifier has just to receive sound in the mean time?
I’m aware if this works, obviously some things may not temporarily work, like certain car beeps and such since it’s not being connected through the oem radio’s harness, but i’m okay with that so long as she can hear sound while she’s out on her 2 week road trip coming up.
I can resolve the rest better when she’s back.
I’d appreciate some insight on my thought process and whether or not that would temporarily work or not?
