Reverse OEM radio harness?
 
I've seen on eBay reverse radio harnesses that plug into the back of the factory radio. Has anyone seen one that would work on a 2012/2013 radio?

Background: I'm installing an amp on a factory 2013 system along with new speakers. I'm trying to avoid running new speaker wire and trying to avoid cutting my factory wiring harness. I realize I could just use t taps to get the signal from the radio into the loc, but the problem will be feeding it back into the speakers without having to either run new wire or cut something. If I could find the OEM speaker wiring harness, I could just create my own radio-to-loc-to-amp wiring harness and then tap into the original speaker harness from the amp.

Any ideas?

Well, that's only half of the problem. Getting the other connector that looks like the audio unit itself is actually the hard part.

Try getting the METRA 70-5520 and the METRA 70-5520-1. They look like they would fit. You should only need the large 24 pin plug out of the -1 kit, you can scrap the other 2.
