Helllooo Clockman.

I swapped the unit on my '95 SC and just tested the connectors with a m/meterand a speaker to check front / back and left / right.

As regards which type I have a kenwood with a input so I can use an mp3 player (about £60)

If I get chance on the weekend I will make a note of the connector wiring if it helps.

GOOD LUCK

I am currently struggling with working out how to fit my car stereo too!

1) First of all I had no brackets - but since got those and part numbers.
2) Today I got the stereo itself.
3) I can't figure out how to get the dash off, just above the key.
The whole thing wants to come off, but something there jams it.
4) Once I get the dash off I can work out what type of frame to use.
I'll continue with a search here and hope I find better instructions.
5) My wagon has 5 white connectors and several loose wires in the
radio compartment. 4 of them are a combination of male/female
Toyota fittings, and once now connected together they would
seem to feed signals (after disappearing off out of sight) into a
smaller female block with 1 row of 2 x 3, and row 1 7 connectors.
I do not know if this is the final block, or some mutant accessory!

Any advice or wiring of the loom (and a photo ideally) would be great!

Cheers, and thanks,
Richard.

HI again, Thanks for your replies.Having had a quick look at the wiring I considered the possibility of a second amp hidden somewhere. No decision on the new unit yet. I entered Halfords today just for a look and asked the lad for some info. What a laugh, He had never heard of a Hiace SC,nor the DIN standard for fitments,he actually thought that I was referring to the volume of sound produced,assuming that a double DIN unit made more noise than a single. Trying to explain the Deutsches Institut für Normung standards system met with a blank stare.He obviously thought I was bonkers. However an amazing selection of units are available. It's about time to scrap the faithfull Bluespot Koln circa 1966 which has served me well.
On Grisly's dash problem the following may help. Remove the lower panel under the steering column, remove the lower dash screws, remove the screw above the speedo. rotate the Rh centre top air vent upwards & remove the hidden screw, the dash panel pops off spring clips,unplug the switch wires (they are all different and cannot be mixed up )a little wiggling gets the panel out past the wheel. While the panel is off pop out the switches & polish up the plastic.Alternativley cover it in pink fur or to your own taste. The tightly stretched skin of an endangered species can look rather fetching.
PS what are blue teeth and why should a radio need one ?

Hello,
I recently got partial details about the Hiace SC radio variations.
I will grab a photo. I have diagrams of 2 variations, one with amp,
one without. The one with amp seems to be used with a mini-disk.
I'll try to post tomorrow the image.
I'd still appreciate any details about the wiring, that isn't detailed.
Cheers,
Richard.

you can purchase a plug that will plug into the back of your euro spec tranni and connect with the jap spec loom ...there are two types one for a normal single cd player and an amplifier type for the vans that have the double system..... bout £10 for the normal 1 and £20 for the amplifier type.... I got one from a car audio specalist up the road but they may be available from ebay....

Did you ever figure out what you need for the Hiace radio swap? I have an imported from Japan 1992 Toyota Hiace Super Custom. I already snipped the original wiring harness out, but can't figure out what color wires mean what. I have a Panasonic head unit that I bought useds off of craigslist. The colors of my wires left to right are:

Top row: black w/ silver dots / blue w/ silver dots / brown w/ silver dots / blue with red stripe / green w/ white strip / pink w/ blue stripe

Next row: green w/ silver dots / yellow with silver dots / red w/ silver dots / white w/ silver dots / gray with black stripe / black w/ white stripe

its only one connector (loom), not two like some toyotas. Any help would be great.

A cheap eBay Toyota Yaris adapter fits to go from Toyota to DIN.

I would not guarantee van wiring colours, I've not known them to be consistent.

The wiring is conventional - i.e. two wires to each speaker, lights on, ground, power and switched power so a multimeter should let you identify them all. If you identify the power and switched power first, then you can safely get the speaker wires with the lowest ohms scale as the speaker should quietly click as you measure it.
