    Toyota Radio Information

    Ok, Hopefully this will help everyone see how Toyota Radio痴 work and what you can do to install different radios in your Toyota. This will be a rather long post and I致e been known to leave out information that seems important to some people, so please try to understand what I think is implied.

    There are basically 2 types of Toyota Stereos:
    1. Internally Amplified (the amplifier is in the Stereo)
    2. Externally Amplified (the amplifier is a separate component)

    For the Internally Amplified Stereos I知 only going to discuss the most common type which is the 10pin 6pin Stereo.


    10pin 6pin
    This set up is pretty much used on almost all Toyota cars except for the upper end models. You will find many different 10pin 6pin type stereos, they are available in a single din or double din sizes and different combinations of drives.
    The back of a Toyota 10pin 6pin radio looks like this.

    The connections you should be looking at are the ones Labeled 10pin and 6pin, I will discuss the 12pin connection later.

    Here is the wiring pin out of the 10pin connector:

    1: FR+
    2: FL+
    3: ACC
    4: +B
    5: FR-
    6: FL-
    7: GND
    8: ANT+
    9: AMP+
    10: ILL+

    Here is the 6pin connector pinout

    1: RR+
    2: RL+
    3: RR-
    4: (usually unused)
    5: LL-
    6: RL-

    Here is a picture of the connectors that plug into the 10pin 6pin Stereo


    Now, if you were going to install a aftermarket radio into a car that has the above 10pin 6pin connectors you would wire these connectors into your aftermarket radio to plug into the above connectors (they mimic the back of a 10pin 6pin stereo)

    Next is the 14pin Externally amplified Stereo
    Here is a picture of the back of a 14pin stereo


    And here is a picture of the 14pin connector that plugs into the 14 pin radio

    Here is the pinout of the 14pin connector

    1:AMP
    2:ILL+
    3:+B
    4:MUTE
    5:FL
    6:FR
    7:ANT
    8:LL-
    9:ACC
    10:GND (SLD)
    11:SGND (FADE)
    12:BEEP
    13:RL
    14:RR



    Next is the 15pin Externally amplified Stereo
    Here is a picture of the 15pin connector on the back of a 15pin Stereo


    And here is a picture of the connector that plugs into the 15pin stereo


    Here is the pinout of the 15 pin

    1: AMP
    2: ILL+
    3: ACC
    4: +B
    5: MUTE
    6: FL
    7: FR
    8: ANT
    9: LL-
    10: (normally unused)
    11: GND (SLD)
    12: FADE
    13: BEEP
    14: RL
    15: RR

    You can easily add a aftermarket head unit and continue to use the Factory amplifier.
    You will need to buy a 典oyota amplifier integration harness
    I think it is made by Metra and the part number is 70-8112
    It looks like this


    Next is the 20pin Externally amplified Stereo
    Here is a picture of the 20pin connector on the back of a 20pin stereo


    Here is a picture of the 20pin connector that plugs into the stereo


    Here is the pinout of a 20pin

    1: +B
    2: ILL+
    3: AMP
    4-6 (typically unused)
    7: MUTE
    8: FR
    9: FL
    10: GND (SLD)
    11: ACC
    12: LL-
    13: ANT+
    14, 15: (typically unused)
    16: FADE
    17: BEEP
    18: RR
    19: RL
    20: GND (ground to chasis)

    The 20pin externally amplified system can also use a Amplifier integration Harness
    I believe it is made by 溺etra and the part number is 70-8113

    CD Changers

    CD changers can be added to most newer Toyota Stereos that use the 12 pin connector
    Here is a picture of the back of a radio with the 12 pin connector


    And here is a picture of the connector from the CD changer that plugs into the 12pin connector


    Basically, any Toyota CD changer, weather it痴 a trunk mount, glove box mount or a indash that has a 12pin connector can be plugged into a Toyota stereo that has a 12pin input. (unsure if a indash 6-disc stereo can control a external CD changer even though it has a 12pin input as I have never tried or been given confirmation that it will)

    Now, the cool thing about stereo痴 that have a 12 pin connector is that you can buy and aftermarket black box that connects an I-pod directly to the stereo, I have never tried it but here is a link to what I知 talking about.
    (Note: you can稚 use a CD changer if you use this device, it痴 one or the other)
    http://www.discountcarstereo.com/detail.aspx?ID=842

    You can also get this neat device that lets you plug in other auxiliary devices directly:
    http://www.discountcarstereo.com/detail.aspx?ID=705


    Basic Navigation unit
    Here is a picture of the back of a basic navigation unit:


    The only wiring that you might need to know for this unit is the 5pin Navigation input connector.
    Here is a pinout for it:

    1: Parking brake
    3: Speed sensor input
    5: Reverse input
    3 and 4 you will not need to wire.
    You will most likely need to buy this connector if you are adding a nav unit in a vehicle that didn稚 come with Nav.
    The 5pin connector part # is:
    90980-11909
    And you will need 3 wires with this Part #:
    82998-12690



    About interchanging externally amplified Stereos

    The 14pin, 15pin, 20pin all operate the same. If you have one type of connector in the car, you can change the end to a different one.

    I have made an adapter for a car that originally has a 15pin connector to plug into a 20pin connector. But, it has been hard to find parts to do this at a reasonable price. Recent availability of some parts may change this. I will add information about this as it comes closer to being worked out. (I know a lot of you have been waiting for this for years, I知 sorry I致e been busy)

    You can also add a factory amplifier to a vehicle that originally was only a 10pin 6pin.
    You can find Toyota factory amplifiers that you simply plug in the harness side connectors (10pin and 6pin) into the amplifier and then plug the 14 or 15 or 20pin connector from the amplifier into the corresponding stereo. You can find these amplifiers on Ebay sometimes. So depending on which connector the amplifier has you will need the a stereo with a same connector. Meaning if you get a 15pin amplifier, you will need and externally amplified 15pin connector Stereo also. For example, a unit like this:



    Stereo Width and illumination color
    You must be careful when purchasing a different factory stereo. It must be the same width. So look at the pictures in the ads you find. For any Supra, the stereo must be 7 wide. You can tell when you look at a picture of the stereo, If the face is the same width as the body of the stereo than it is the 7 wide unit. If the face is wider than the body than it is not a 7 unit.

    You must also be careful of illumination color. Most are green, but stereos that came out of newer Tacoma Trucks for example mostly illuminate red.

    I will add to this post in the future when I have more information, if anyone would like to add anything please do and any question please post here, I don稚 like PMs!

    Ah that is some AWESOME info. I have always wondered if the NAV in the Tundra could be swapped into the Supra easily. Seems like it. Now if I can find one somewhere. I like having OEM stuff.

    Eclipse navi's also work well with toyota cause they are the radios that come in them from toyota they usually just have a little difference in the model name.

    No worries. It's not like you shared it on a Honda forum!

    Thanks for the heads up.
    I hope all Toyota people find this info so they stop hacking their wires!!!

    Excellent info here. In case someone runs into this issue, there are two styles of 12 pin CD changer plugs.



    Do you have any info on the steering wheel control pinout?

    Not to dig up such an old post, but i was lead to this website because i have a Nav unit out of a 1998 Toyota Corolla, and im looking to find out what all the plugs are for. I have the system in a 90 Camry DX now.




    I know which 2 connectors are for the Harness, i now also know which the Antenna input for the GPS is and the 12-pin CD Changer as well.

    Im wondering though what the blue connector is, as well as the one above that, and the 2 prong and 3 prong connectors.

    Thanks, Mike.

    For nav units, I would go check out http://www.oemvalue.com/toyota2.htm

    They have quite a bit of info on the wiring for the Toyota nav systems in their installation section.

    Most of the early Toyota nav units had a second unit that contained the processor and data disk(s) interconnected to the head unit by cables. I am thinking specifically of the Sienna since that is what I am familiar with, but I am pretty sure it was generic across Lexus and Toyota at the time.

    You might also check out the Sienna forums, since there is a lot of info there on swapping nav systems.

    Interesting indeed!

    Any of you guys have the factory Navi installed in your Supras?

    Would love to see it.

    Thanks for the information and taking your time to write this up, Ishii!

    The sequoia forum has nothing but newer nav information, and certainly nothing about my 10 year old navigation unit.

    And the other website ive been to before.

    Anything else?

    Toyota CD Changer Connector Name

    need the connector series name and code ( I guess the manufacturer is Molex. ) for the plug at the rear of the 2005 Toyota Corolla CD-Radio. It is a 12pin plug and I need this info to order some spare connectors for my project.

    The smaller one on the right on the pic... I need both device side connector and cable side plug. Does anyone knows the name of the connector and where to order?




    at least anyone know the pin picth of this connector? the distance between two pins...

    Next is the 20pin Externally amplified Stereo
    Here is a picture of the 20pin connector on the back of a 20pin stereo


    Here is a picture of the 20pin connector that plugs into the stereo


    Here is the pinout of a 20pin

    Updated for wire colors:
    1: +B - yellow /blue
    2: ILL+ Dark Green
    3: AMP Red
    4-6 (typically unused)
    7: MUTE Brown
    8: FR Black
    9: FL Blue
    10: GND (SLD) - Silver Wire
    11: ACC - Gray
    12: LL- White/ Light Blue
    13: ANT+ Pink / Blue
    14, 15: (typically unused)
    16: FADE - White
    17: BEEP - Red
    18: RR - Light Green
    19: RL - Yellow
    20: GND (ground to chasis) - Brown

    The 20pin externally amplified system can also use a Amplifier integration Harness
    I believe it is made by 溺etra and the part number is 70-8113
