The harness is in the car, unless you are planing to install it in an non standard location (out of reach of the factory harness) you donít need any harness.

i wanted to put it in the glove box
if i remmebre righ tthe one tha ti talked to once said that harness is
run under the wood paneling from the shifts so when the wood grain comes out to put the navi unit in is it easy to pull that harness out and then jsut run it threw the glove box or somthing i just want to keep my center consol free i have alot of things i use that for
also is the plug harness the same in 2000 as it would be for 2003

Yes the plug it is the same, only that the data wire works on a different protocol in 2003 is common with the car data bus (OBDII) while in 2000 is a separate data bus between the CD changer and HU.
So when you will put your NAV unit in the car make sure you reroute the CD data wire in the back of the HU from pin E1 (the way you have-it now) to any of the pins F6 or E6 (connected to one of the PPL wires).

By the way the 2003 CD changer is NOT the compatible with 2000, shure hope you got the 2003 one...
The one I got (compatible with the NAV unit) is P#25740088.

Well from a lawyer point of view it will not work, one is OBDII based (2003) another is E+D protocol, but the connectors are the same and with a very simple rewiring you will get it going.
But donít worry since you said CadillacSTS2003 will help you he knows what is doing, the part you need to know is you got the correct parts. :thumbsup:
