Car radio ISO harness adapters are used in the installation of car radios with ISO connections. This is probably the quickest and easiest way to instantly transform your current car stereo connector into an ISO radio adapter. This ISO radio adaptor is a standard connection that is provided by all UK aftermarket head units. Just to clarify; an aftermarket head unit is basically a new replacement stereo that you would use to replace the existing stereo that came pre-fitted in your car by the manufacturer. An ISO radio adapter is the universally agreed fitting that all aftermarket stereo manufacturers use, so it means that you will be able to retrofit pretty much any replacement head unit with ease after it has been fitted.
An ISO car stereo set of wiring usually is made up of two individual 8 pin connectors. These vary between having one block that is made up of two different halves, or simply two separate connectors.
These harness adaptors connect power and speakers directly into the unit, however, for cars that use steering wheel controls there are additional options that can be installed so that your new aftermarket stereo still benefits from working controls on your steering wheel, which is both safer and more convenient.
There are different ISO adapters to suit pretty much any main brand of car out there that will then let you choose a head unit from the internet or local car store and have it directly replace your existing stereo without any complications or problems. Whether you have a simple Citroen or a top of the range BMW, there will be an ISO adaptor that will prepare your system for a retrofit and keep all your power and sound working perfectly.
As there are various different options to choose from when coming to purchase an ISO harness adapter, it can be confusing if you are not completely in the know. Therefore it is always worth checking your car stereo instruction manual for details or indeed consult an expert or trained stereo fitter that can advise you on which ISO adapter is best suited to you, your needs and of course your car.
Alternatively, there are a number of online ISO harness adaptor stores that will allow you to easily find the ISO harness adapter that is correct for your car. Simply input the make and model of your car and all the correct selections will be directly displayed to you in an instant. This helps make the purchasing process nice, simple and fast as well as minimising mistakes.
