Customer Question
I'm trying to figure...

I'm trying to figure out the pins at the 3 connectors of the head unit in my 2012 Optima. (I Don't know if you can help, as I own a european Optima)

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '12 Kia?

2012 Optima Premium Navi (euro trim)

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Optima yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'm replacing the head unit

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The VIN is KNAGN414BC5235998 if it helps. Thank you

I'm going to strongly advise against you doing this if you really want me to I can probably pull up the wiring I'm going to go to the shop I used to manage but honestly hacking up the wiring harness is a really pardon the pun hack job way to wire in a stereo you really should get the install Kit you can literally just buy a connectors that plug right into the factory harness and then into your deck in the long run you're going to have far fewer issues with sound quality and the connections and everything else if you just spend $10 on the harness and just plug it in.
