2017 JK Unlimited-Spare Yellow Wire on harness

Post by mnorman1961 » Sat Feb 10, 2018 4:23 pm

It appears I have a spare wire coming from the main harness on the CH1 going to the harness wires of a Kenwood DDX9903S. The wiring guide shows a solid yellow, which I have, that is B+ 12V. No problem there. I have a second yellow wire that has, what appears to be, a gray stripe. Your wiring guide doesn't show that wire in the diagram. When I chase the circuit through the harness, it looks like it terminates into the same plug as the OBDII wires. Everything else matches up. Clearly, I'm missing something. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Hello, I just want to be sure I understand, the Yellow/Gray (could it be Yellow/Black?), does that wire come out with the other wires that you connected to the Kenwood radio?
If so then that Yellow/Black wire is only used for Alpine radios. All you would need to do it tape up that wire.
Please let me know if we're talking about the same wire.
Thanks!

You're correct. As stated in the original question, the wire comes from the main harness of the CH1 going to the Kenwood head unit. I ended up capping the wire and not using it. The CH1 is working fine. Thanks

Did anyone find out what this wire is for?

I have a yellow/black from my radio (mute) but the instructions tell me to tie into the Brown wire on the harness for mute.

Yellow/Black is foot brake for alpine. If you don't have an alpine with a corresponding yellow/black, do not hook this wire up.
