Mod edit: V1 was closed and archived to help with site performance, and can be found here. I copied the first post into the new thread so that all of the pertinent info would be close at hand, but if there are any other important posts that you'd like to see copied over, shoot me a PM and I'll copy those as well.

 

------------------------------------------------------------------

 

PLEASE READ ALL OF FIRST POST AND DIY BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS!!! ALSO, I Now rarely am on the site, DO NOT PM me about this install, ASK YOUR QUESTIONS HERE. It prevents me from answering the same questions over and over!

 

I Sold my Subaru a while back and no longer frequent the site(often) If you need anything you can PM me and i will try to get back to you. Also, SVXdc is who makes the harness, SVXdc is who makes the harness, SVXdc is who makes the harness, SVXdc is who makes the harness, SVXdc is who makes the harness, please pm him for one. The last 7 or 8 pm's were asking that question and its written below. He is the only one who makes the harness.

 

 

You may not want to read through a 1000+ posts, but I am getting a lot of questions that have been addressed many many times before! If you have read the thread and still have questions I will be more than glad to help if I can! Thanks!

SVXdc's Harness:

If you order from SVXdc, follow this(quoted from SVXDC:

When people e-mail me, I usually reply the same or next day. So if you've e-mailed me and don't hear back within a day or two, first check your spam folder, then e-mail me again. You might also add my address to your 'white list' or address book.

 

You can also send me a PM, though it will sometimes be a little longer before I reply. Even if you e-mail me, it wouldn't hurt to include your username on the forums.

 

I just recently received e-mails from someone with an Earthlink account, who doesn't seem to be getting my replies.)

Drivers side button=Drivers side fan

Passenger side button = Passenger side fan

Auto on passenger side, defroster and rear wind defroster now on driver side

 

The Hazard switch will not fit without modification. It is simply screwed on the back of your original faceplate. You will need to dremel out BEHIND the faceplate(once you install it you will know exactly what I am talking about. It shouldn't be visible once you install it so it won't need to be pretty, just enough to clear the switch. Another method is to drill a hole on the back. More pictures to come, but it was much easier than cutting.

 

The Ghetto way, but working way.

Before you start, get:

a Phillips screw driver(longer the better(at least that's what she said)

A wiring harness for your radio (similar to this at best buy or circuit city http://www.geocities.com/svxdc/WRXfwdharness.htm

It should have come with an antenna adapter (similar to this http://www.crutchfield.com/p_12040SB10/Subaru-Antenna-Adapter.html )

about 3-4 feet of wire or more( I used solid core 18AWG, its about 3-4$ a roll)

Zipties, electrical tape and splice connectors(optional)

 

Before you even go to your car, use the wiring adapter to wire to your new radio.

also mount the new radio and HVAC module with the supplied brackets

 

First remove your radio, search the forums if you don't know how to do this

 

take the JDM module and try to plug in the little connectors. only one will work. Obviously that's the one you want.

 

Add a wire to pins, 2,4 and 8 on the i88 connector(hvac) Doesn't matter what color, just "jam" them in and zip tie the wires so they won't pull out. I also wrapped the wires around the harness(see pic) so they would have a little more play. the other ends of the those 3 wires will be spiced in(either side of the radio plug see pic for placement) if you do not want to splice into your factory wiring(as I didn't) you can put the illumination ground or negative or whatever you want to call it(-) onto regular ground, however you will only have 2 settings dim and bright(ok for me) After all your connections were spliced in plug everything up mount the radio but don't put in the trim pieces just yet. Turn on the ignition and verify function first. If everything is working correctly then finish putting everything back together. Don't forget to put on the ground cable that it comes with and the antenna!!!

It is obvious where the ground goes into the car, and I put the other end of the ground cable onto a screw on the new radio.

 

The non- ghetto way just requires you to add actual pins to the harness but seeing as I don't have those, its ghetto but it works.

Well I finished the install, put the hazard switch in, also put my ipod connector and 3.5mm headphone jack in the "console box" Instead of the penny trick from last time, I had a piece of flat black rubber I put in place, turned out pretty good. I have a picture of what I cut out, a pic of the elongated hole on the USDM hazard switch, also you need to cut off the pins for the hazard switch if you use the USDM switch. The pins are on the JDM bezel, and if you don't cut them off it won't line up.

a couple more pics, The hazard switch isn't perfectly flush like before, but if you didn't know what your looking for, its not that big of a deal. Also I had to elongate both holes on the hazard switch. Anyone that does this instead of the JDM switch(BTW I have one on the way, going to mount and compare which one i want to go with) I just really wanted to make sure it could be done. Also after I cut off the pins I needed a spacer on the top right, that's what those while things are, I just took a piece of plastic, drilled a hole and rounded it out so it wasn't too big.

Here is information regarding the Pioneer DVD Bypass:

 

YouTube- avicd3 bypass

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_QnY2-DQh4&feature=related]YouTube- avicd3 bypass[/ame]

1. Remove the yellow and black mute wire.

2. Place the Mute wire in the slot directly above where you removed it from.

3. Using a wire tap (radio shack 10 for $5) connect the mute wire to the ground.

4. Using the wire tap (that is already attached to the parking break wire/green wire) attach it to the ground wire as well.

5. GROUND the BLACK WIRE.... ENJOY!

161515329_IMG_0798-Copy.thumb.JPG.bd7056ff7be431d7901cdba9561e9354.JPGI wrote a long reply but it ate my post so TL;DR

I bought a FH-201F2 aka h6217ag902sc aka single zone controls that fit a double din stereo because it was ~$83CAD shipped (no upper plate but thats only $30) instead of $400CAD

It only works on auto on the left and controls the right, screen doesn't work, needs the 12V accessory wire put in the I88, didnt install the illumination wires.

Front defrost works, no idea how to check rear defrost, I really just needed any heat because Canada and winter.

 

Massive shoutout to SVXdc for his informative posts.

My GT arrived today - good news, it has a double din in already, with GPS antenna routed as well to the windows.

 

It currently has this : pioneer carrozzeria vh009 - all japanese

 

So I am definately replacing it with something else.

 

Would the GPS antennas etc work with other modules?

Anyone know the usual response time for SVXdc? It's probably due to the holiday season but I sent him my initial order email on the 19th hoping to get parts in during the winter break and followed up on the 23rd but haven't heard anything back yet

He took less than 24hrs to reply to my order for my 15 WRX (multiple harnesses and controller for SWC, aux and usb in armrest console and the rest for a no cut install) and then he took around a week to answer me for my Legacy JDM double din order just a few months ago. Maybe send a friendly reminder email. He’s never just not answered in my business with him

Looking for a compatible headunit that works in all respects (steering wheel controls, aux jack in the armrest, factory sub in the rear etc). Does anyone know if the sony XAV-AX5000 would work? I assume the harness takes care of all the connections necessary but pretty newb to this and plus i have an outback and not a legacy

 

Also not sure how the temp dials are mounted to the plate but are they swappable since we are lefty drives here?

When I had the same question for Svxdc regarding the aux jack in the center console working, he basically told me to just nix that idea and just get a universal aux jack to replace the OEM one and it'll plug right into an aftermarket head unit instead of trying to make the factory aux jack work.

I see. however this AX5000 is spec'ed as not having an "aux in." I wonder if I can still do it. I guess overall it doesnt matter as it has bluetooth

 

im guessing one of these "universal aux jacks" looks like this? https://www.amazon.com/APPS2Car-Auxiliary-Expedition-Freestyle-Navigator/dp/B00N9WKTUM

 

as long as the steering wheel buttons work and sub works, im all dandy for the most part

Head units will usually have an RCA input on the back of them. The universal aux I was talking about is just a red/white RCA to 3.5mm aux jack.

 

There should be a SWC interface that will allow you to retain steering wheel controls.

 

I believe the rear sub also will no longer function properly with an aftermarket head unit.

no responses from svxdc for 4 days now. maybe hes done with the hobby?

 

He's been pretty swamped lately and other things going on as well but I talked to earlier in January and he's still doing orders. If you haven't yet, send a followup email to him and double check that his response isn't sitting in your junk/spam folder. He did tell me he's behind on the i88 harnesses so that may be delayed by a few days.

I just purchased my 2008 LGT, it is a 5AT. I got lucky and the infinity speakers I bought for RSX actually fit the legacy (except the tweeters). My LGT did not come with a sub, however I purchased a baselink 2 which is sort of a amp/sub combo. I am looking at doing the jdm conversion I have read through all of the posts(i didn't see this question) but I did not know if there is a way for me to hook up the baselink to the car if it never had a sub to begin with. During the conversion if there is an existing wire I could use or if I would need to hook it up to a different harness, or if it is not feasible to do. I greatly appreciate any help in this matter.

I am not familiar with the Basslink system, but I did a little research online. It looks to me like you would just hook it up directly to the aftermarket head unit, using its line out jacks. Or, if you wanted to use the speaker-level inputs, you could just add in the wires when you build the "master" harness using the 14-pin and head unit harnesses, shown in the pic in post #1 of this thread. Then you just need to connect the "remote switch," also to the head unit, and then your power and ground.

So one more question, if I did not want to go the jdm route and did not care about the dual climate control function because I rarely drive with anyone else, could I swap for a manual climate control and then be able to add either a single or double dinn bay for a aftermarket stereo?

You could but you would have to swap the hvac assemblies as the blend door and vent doors are manually operated. It would suck to have to pull all that with the dash in the car but if you took the time to go thru all that then yes you would be following the 2.5i path.

Has anyone looked into the LHD variant of the DD dash kit?

 

The head unit they want you to use does not come in any US cars, to my knowledge. All US cars have all of the head units looking like their example with a red X through it, not the green check mark version. You'd still have to buy a JDM HVAC setup (or this Russian one?) if you wanted to completely replaced a USDM setup, then maybe you could use this LHD faceplate.

been warned by David to not buy the russian versions (seen on ebay right now). Not sure of the technicalities.
