Hi, I just joined today in hopes of finding out some info. I need to tap into the VSS wire in a 2015 Toyota Tacoma, any info as far as color of the wire and locations to access it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Hi, long time lurker finally joined after getting my 5000NEX installed. Everything works except when I went to adjust ASL setting and discovered it's grayed out. I got my VSS cable connected correctly, as I can see the vehicle speed pulse going up and down when the car is in motion. What's causing the ASL setting to be unavailable? Any help is much appreciated.
HeavyDuty posted a topic in Vehicle Specific WiringHello all, Apologies to the forum for busting in here with my first post asking a favor without the ability to offer help to the community. I have searched FSM's on NICO and ClubFrontier, but I'm still unclear about this confounding VSS wire. So, there's a light blue wire in the OE stereo harness. Some say I can wire to that, while others say unless I had the speed sensitive volume control (like on the Rockford Fosgate system) that's the wrong wire. . Others state I have to look for a light blue wire on the instrument cluster plug. Also, am I splicing into it (piggy backing with a Scotch lock) or removing the pin from (either) harness? I can't imagine it wouldn't just be a piggyback. TIA, great forum, looking forward to participating here.
Hi Folks, I've ordered a 7000 to replace a 710 that was stolen, so this is the first time I've had to deal with a VSS connection as the 710 didn't require it. In searching the web for where to connect it (blue/white wire coming out of the PCM), I came across a couple of threads with debates on how to connect it, so thought I'd ask for input here. Is there a "correct" or "preferred" method for making the actual connection of the pink wire to the car's VSS wire? I came across people promoting each of: 1) Using a plastic splice clip 2) Removing insulation from the VSS, twisting the pink cable on and soldering 3) Removing insulation from the VSS, twisting the pink cable on and NOT soldering (something about not soldering to avoiding adding resistance) 4) Tying into the harness connector for the VSS wire either at the speedo or PCM I've generally used the plastic clips for splicing into things like steering controls and parking brakes in the past, but not having dealt with a VSS connection before, just wanted to ask for input in case that's not the right choice. Also, on a couple of posts, I came across comments about the type and gauge of wire used to splice into the VSS being important as well to ensure accurate readings. Any truth in that considering it ends up connected to whatever Pioneer used for the pink wire on the head unit harness? In case the answer to either question is car specific, it's a 2003 Acura 3.2CL. Cheers & Thanks, Brian
