    I called several junk yards but no one keeps or sells harness' let alone the pigtails. Fleabay has been a bust too. crazy to think people that work and install this shit at shops refuse to do it but it can be done by regular people. RUDEBOYSPI seems like you came quite a way to, I've been follow this forum taking notes on what and where to wire. as well as the manual I have. only thing stopping me is getting the harness'. sucks balls. thanks for the responses so far btw

    Bojangle, when I bought my nav setup they sent me an enormous harness. From looking at it, there is no small harness for behind the radio. Everything is wired into the big harness they sent me, which when I ran the part number ran for $700. So you will definitely just have to find the pigtails or find that main interior harness but it will be expensive. I got lucky that they sent me that for no extra charge.

    There is a sticker with the part number on the main harness that I will update you with later. That is how I was able to look it up and find the retail cost.

    bojangle,
    If you have a service manual and can find the connector pinouts, the pics show part numbers for the connectors and the pins with there associated tray numbers. You can then order them up from the dealer. I had to do this for the 4th amp connector. It ended up being a couple bucks.

    been there done that most of the part numbers don't exist and can't be crossed referenced. the off the amp was good but most of them won't pull any info up

    Re: Successful navigation swap into a non Nav CTS

    I'm about to start a similar swap but I'm upgrading from the base U2R radio to the U2S. Does anyone have a picture of the backside of the U2S radio?
    Also, can anyone confirm that the U2S radio was only available with the 10 speaker upgraded Bose system (the UQS option) - OR was it possible to get the U2S radio with the standard 8 speaker Bose system (UQA) ?
    Thanks all,

    Re: Successful navigation swap into a non Nav CTS

    I have now traced the wires from the Display X1 and X2 connectors and removed their terminals from the Radio X4 connector, and removed the wire that goes from the control panel to Radio X1.

    So if I'm correct, all I need to do is hook up the display connectors to power and ground and run the voice guidance wire. Also the VSS if I choose. Can't think of anything else though.

    Am I missing anything??

    Re: Successful navigation swap into a non Nav CTS

    One last question. On each display connector (X1 and X2) there is a white wire called "Entertainment Remote Signal Enable". What did you guys do about this white wire? It sounds like it just runs from X1 to X2 but looking at the harness it seems to run back quite aways, so why would it bother doing that if it just goes between X1 and X2...did you guys run it from X1 to X2 or do something else?

    Anyways let me know as I do not want to cut the wire until I know where it goes and if it is needed.

    You came though, much appreciated. looks like that part number was replaced with 20777213. Thanks again Zach2011

    I thought I saw some where that some one asked if there was a way to add another screen...? Can't find it again to see if it was answered. would be pretty cool for the kids if there's a way. thanks again in advance.

    I haven't yet, too many projects to do. Its getting warmer so I'll try to finish it up. My fiance really wants the usb drive, so i might have to get a part number from you.

    zach,
    i think those two whites get splice together and one goes to the radio.
