Hello All.

Model: 2007 Dodge Nitro SLT
Stereo: Stock basic with no bluetooth
Amp/Sub: No
Steering Wheel Controls: Yes

I am installing a Kenwood DPX792BH (double din, no nav). I already have the dash kit.

What I need help with is the wire harness.

Whats the basic harness, no steering controls or extras?

Whats the more in depth harness, keeps steering controls and what not?

Crutchfield and SonicElectronix show me a bunch of different ones and I want to make sure I get it correct. So I came to the experts.

Welcome R St0ver

I doubt that any of us would be experts unless we had installed the same radio. If Kenwood offers you the option to continue to use your the cool feature of your steering wheel controls to change radio channels and volume why not (if I understand your question?).

I would take that option myself. Good Luck on your radio upgrade.

ect.

I used the Crutchfield's order guide and the main option is a factory subwoofer, then add one of two kits.

This wiring harness looks to be the same and is available from Amazon and even Walmart so if I did the correct search
( do it yourself to make sure) you should have no issue of purchasing one.

Not sure why you would not contact them and make it all work for you. It is their responsibility? Don't understand why they would not send you the above PAC RP4-CH11 Wiring Interface as per their Web Site will work with their radio on your Nitro? Purchase it from someone else?

Mind if I ask what the mistake was? I can't get mine to work with the same harness? Seems like the amp isn't turning on. Because when I plug I the old radio it works fine.
