Audio system cable - Steering wheel controls + Mic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I've searched around but haven't found and answers yet, so I wonder if anyone is able to help here? I've got a 06 RAV4 with the Sat Nav unit in it. I wanted to change it to a Pinoeer system but can't find the right cables. I would like an adapter that connects the steering wheel controls and also something to hook up the integrated microphone for the hands free kit, so I don't have to run a wire for another one.

I have seen several options online, but non that mention the mic. I wonder if anyone else has done this, and how?

 

Thankyou!

Update: I've bought this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/350738157706 but my thinking is I'd have to splice cables to use the integrated mic?

For reference, here's what the connectors look like. I'm guessing the square grey one (not in picture as it fell back inside) is the GPS antenna.

I will link you to the interface cables that will save you time. The days of splicing were long gone decades back. Everything is plug and play, so long as you use mainstream companies.  

Connects2 to Toyota including steering controls for Pioneer -  http://www.connects2.co.uk/Product/ProductItem/CTSTY001.2 and http://www.connects2.co.uk/Product/ProductItem/CTPIONEERLEAD

Connects2 also do antenna adaptors, so have a look here - http://www.connects2.co.uk/products/antennas-and-adapters/vehicle/Toyota

Autoleads also supply the adapter cables and other parts you will need - https://catalog.autoleads.co.uk/?fc=module&module=aampsearchbyvehicle&controller=results&aamp-sbv-region=2&aamp-sbv-trim=30601&aamp-sbv-make=96&aamp-sbv-model=RAV-4&aamp-sbv-year=22784

You could try searching for in car audio specialists who supply these parts, or search on sites like Ebay quoting the part numbers shown in the links to Autoleads and Connects2.

Hello, thanks for the helpful reply 🙂 Looks like the ebay one is CTSY001.2 and a universal version of CTPIONEERLEAD as well (with a couple of extra flying leads I guess for different head units).

The antenna adapter - those are for the radio antenna which fits the Pioneer out of the box, the other one I mentioned was the GPS, but my Pioneer unit doesn't have sat nav so it's not needed.

I've seen a post about a mod to change over the integrated mic in the ceiling panel to use another one - I'm actually hoping it's not necessary and I can reuse it, but need to figure out how all this is wired. So for I've not heard of anyone being able to do this - but if anyone has a wiring diagram or tech specs for the relevant bits I'd be keen to have a look.

Thanks
