00 ZX3 head unit swap ! How to make it easy...

What's up !

I was looking for replacement head unit for my 00 ZX3 with built in XM . I found what I needed and stop by BestBuy to get a harness to plug my Pioneer unit to the factory harness without cutting it and I bought a kit to drop and fix the radio to the factory location. I was not expecting it to be so easy. First time I swap a factory radio just by doing plug and play .

I know for most of you it's nothing but I was surprise how easy it went for me.

I know it's not the top of the line head unit but I have no intention ( as of yet ) to upgrade anything ( speakers or subs ).

This is the kit I bought , It's like a block lego kit , you can move parts to make it fit your needs.

This is the harness kit I got , All color matches ( almost ) the Pionner radio , just solder wires and you're done .


Now I just have to drop the unit in the factory location .

Factory harness .

Just plug it in .

Push the radio back in place and you're done...

Martin !
