Question Radio harness for 2007 Kia Sorento

I am trying to install an after market stereo on a 2007 Sorento LX and the installer says he could not complete it because the harness he brought does not fit and he called around and no one knows where he can get one. It's a Delco radio/CD player that comes stock with the Sorento. Apparently there is an amplifier that will not fit the harness. Any one out there have or had this problem and where can we get the parts? Help needed. Thank you.

Well, since they changed the forum layout, I don't read any of the other boards

On the other hand, I don't know much about US spec audio systems, so didn't really understand the question.

The question is, this question is about a 2007 sorento US radio. I'm not on a UK forum, (although mayeb the moderator is English). So why was this question moved and to where? Seems simple enough.

Well obviously it was moved to here! (The Sorento Forum) Of course it's not a "UK" forum - noone suggested it was - its an international forum with members all over the world.

Yes there is a factory amp and in order to use it you have to do one of two things: 1. Rerun wires to the speakers from the new head unit, or 2. get a device that will lower the output of the Aftermarket stereo unit so it wont short the amp. The name of the device escapes me at the moment, but as soon as I find it i will edit my post. Gee6, help me out here
here is the link to the forum that discusses the amp setup!! Hope it helps

I moved it here to the Sorento Forum. I can remember where it was originally posted but it wasnt in the correct spot. Its no big deal.

With regard to the original question, ahem... it's the Metra 70-7302 which fits into the factory harness.

Metra Online

have you put this harness in your sorento? I have tried a couple of harnesses that said that they will fit the 07 and they didnt.
