Hi

You cut the factory radio plug off and you want another?

Most car audio shops should be able to help you, or a dealer or wrecker.

Or do you want a plug for the radio you are installing? That would be a car audio store.

try www.crutchfield.com you can either order the part from them, or if you're still confused, they have a pretty decent phone help service.

So are you trying to reinstall the stock radio, or install an aftermarket radio? Because you need a different harness depending on what you're installing. Also, it's very unlikely that the colors will match - you'll have the get color-codes for both. (If you give me the vehicle and headunit models, I can probably track it down for you.)

Nice... never ever cut off a harness unless you absolutely have to!!!

If you threw it away, theres not much i can recommend but sit tight and let me get the wireing schematic tomorrow and post what color is what... You will now have to solder on the aftermaket wires to the cut harnes in the dash....

Switch (aka "REM") is simply a relay wire that is on when the head unit is on, and off when the head unit is off - you use it if you're wiring an amp to the head unit, so it automatically turns on and off. It won't effect anything if you don't have an amp.
