I am installing a Pioneer head unit, and need the wiring harness to go from the Fiero's radio harness/plug, and convert to a Pioneer. This is pretty simple for newer cars, but I am having no luck finding one when searching for a Fiero harness. I know even the harness on the Fiero is different than newer Pontiac's. I found that out when I pulled a nice radio out of a newer Pontiac at the junkyard, and when I got home the plug in the back of the radio is different. Is there a name for the older style, a model number, such as a "t1 connector -vs a t2" or something like that? Is it based on year like Pre 1992 ect?

I am trying to avoid (at all cost) having to cut the Fiero's radio harness and hard wiring everything.

I went with the Pioneer as it is "Mechless" with no CD or Cassette, thus it is only like 4 inches deep. I need this as I am doing a custom center console, and the radio will sit with the back of the radio tilted down. A full length radio would no allow me to do this in the space that I have.

Or use the Metra part number that I put in the Ebay search bar and see if a stereo shop local to you has one.
