    I ordered a Alpine CDA-9857 Head unit, and also got the Dash Harness for my Mazda 3. Do I also need a radio wire harness to install this?


    Thanks

    dash harness as in the dash kit?

    yes you will need the wiring harness unless you want to chop off the Mazda plug and then test every wire to figure out what they are.

    wiring harnesses are not a requirement but they make it go much much easier

    without 1 you better be pro style with wiring cuz it will be one big bitch
