I recently changed my headunit and when I did, I searched high and low, but could not find any diagrams that lined up with what I could see in my car.

Here is what I found:

This diagram comes closest to what I see:
<pinout.png>

so on my car, this connector comes from the loom behind the stereo, the A and B banks have no wires connected, the four circular ones on the middle left have a double green wire coming out, and the main block bottom right has some key pins missing (from every thread I could find that describes them)

this is mine:

the red arrow points to where everywhere says is ACC/Ignition power. Going by the numbers in the first picture, it's 16 that's missing, and I connected to the black cable thats in position 13 (back right in the second picture). This works, but Im not sure it's ACC, I think I have given the TV box and ANT PWR direct 5v somehow.

What are the green cables? I am hoping they are the steering wheel controls, but they seem to head off lft behind the dash, to where the glove box is.

Hello, did you find what the green cables are for? I have the same concern.
