according to the chart you sent me, here are the wires that don't match what I have: 8,9,18,19,20,21... these are the wires that I DO HAVE that are unaccounted for: BLU/ORG, GREEN, BRN/ LT BLU, BLU/WHITE, VIOLET, BLU/RED, BRN/YELLOW... everything else from the chart seems to match.
I see all those wires on the premium. Do you have an amplifier?
I just looked over the chart for premium and I guess it's premium...
I don't see anything about the Parking Brake wiring in any wiring diagrams. Give me 1 moment and maybe I can at least find the fuse for it in the owners manual.
PCI stands for Peripheral Component Interconnect (Peripheral Controller Interface), a computer bus for attaching hardware devices in a computer. The Scan Tool "talks" to the vehicle controllers on separate networks. The tool communicates with the PCM via the SCI Transmit and Receive circuits, and with other modules through the CCD or PCI data bus circuits.
There are many pci buses but I believe I have found the correct PCI bus, the one for the radio has the VIO/LT BLU wire, click here. It goes to the Diagnostic Junction Port at pin 3.Also, click here.
Ok but I still don't understand what I connect that wire to. The receiver I'm installing is AVH-P5200BT Pioneer. I cut all the wires out of the stock harness and just connected wires indiviually. I also had a question about the antenna, the stock isn't compatible with the one I'm installing. Does that black collar on the antenna some how detach, or do I need to purchase some type of adapter?
Do you know where the 16 pin connector is to hook up the scan tool for retrieving the OBDII codes? According to those diagrams, that VIO/LT BLU wire for the radio PCI Bus goes to the #3 pin which would be the 3rd from the top left looking at it from the front.

Why isn't the antenna compatible? Does it use a different kind of cable, etc?
I see now why you were asking about the parking brake switch. On page 5, it says the light green wire goes to that switch.
The violet/light blue wire was from the factory wiring. IP Bus is most likely not the same thing as PCI Bus. On page 8 it says the IP Bus cable is supplied with Bluetooth adapter. Do you have that cable or the bluetooth adapter?
Do you have an auto antenna?
Are you also trying to hook up to an Ipod?
I think that PI Pus cable is for an Ipod.
I have the map for the instrument cluster, but I'm not sure where the actual cluster is located in my truck...
The instrument cluster is where all the instruments are on the dash.
Does the antenna look like this?
Attachments are only available to registered users.
If you are trying also to hook up an Ipod it says you need this cable.
iPod Direct Control (CD-IU50V Required)
Use the CD-IU50V interface cable to connect an iPod® or iPhone® directly into the receiver
not the stock one no. The tip is at a 90 deg angle. i'm not hooking up an ipod or navi or anything else like that.
Does it come off easy? is that the only way it's going to fit?
I'll research more after the super bowl, it's halftime now.
In the meantime, which end and can you show me what you mean.
