    No need to cut up the harness. Spend $20 on an adapter harness

    ----------

    Actually, you may need an integration mode.

    He only gets static. A reception/antenna or HU issue, and he wants to replace it with after market anyway. I don't see where testing the harness would get him. It provides power, and transmits the speaker signal to the amp. His is on, and the speakers are getting a signal.
