I litterally just had this problem. So in my harness the pins were in the right location but the actual wires were labeled wrong. The front negatives were labeled opposite of what they were. Like Hush Car said, just follow the wires so that they all meet up together. All you have to know is LF + is White, LF - is white/black RF + is Grey RF - is grey/Black LR + is Green LR - is green/black RR + is purple RR - is purple/black. Good luck.

Thanks! I will definitely double check. I've been reading a ton of Forscan threads...a bit disappointed that there is not much you can do that I would be interested in program beyond the audio but love that we can flatten the factory system. so good.

Auto roll window down is cool same with deer lights. For $30 it's worth it compared to an expensive LOC. Trust me I sell audio stuff and would love to sell you some product but honestly, forscan is pretty dope and I'd feel terrible wasting your money when this option is available to you.

The people in your geo are lucky to have you as an installer! I am just about to order Forscan now...currently looking at subwoofers which are more "seczzzy" sorry not sure if some filter here. I have a 15" alpine in my ford escape and looking at a fox box with either SA 10's or E 10's. both review as wow.

My Parrot harness didn't have anything labeled on the wires at all. I gotta be honest, for $80 it was bit of a disappointment; it definately made like easier, but I don't know about $80 easier... Now hearing this about the wires being mixed up, I'd seriously think twice about buying or recommending one again.

It is super small print. Just go by the colors.

I used the parrot harness and it made wiring easier. Only issue was that two of the wires were labeled incorrectly and I wasn’t getting sound out of my passenger front.

The colors should match up for each speaker, solid for the positive and same color with black stripe for the negative. Just double check your work and you’ll be fine.
