    Hello, I recently bought a 2000 Silverado and Am planning on putting an aftermarket radio in it. I pulled the radio and noticed two connectors instead of the one that I have seen before. What does this "extra" connection do, and can I leave it unplugged with no problems? There is the one stock connection that I have seen before and another one on the left of the radio. Is this for the security or what? Thanks, Jordan.

    can you take a picture of the connectors... as i recall in my 99 nbs i only had 1 connector... could you be referring to the antenna plug... if so you will need that one plugged in. so yeah post a pic and im pretty sure i can let you know what it is.

    One is for the antenna, the other is the electrical connections.

    I am only talking about the black connection. Can it be left unplugged? I checked, the new radio works without it plugged in. If so can I tape it off?

    thats the connector for the factory cassette player that is usually placed in the center console... it is unused un less you have the cassette. who even has cassettes anymore?? hope i could help.

    Thanks Patman, what should I do with the connector as the new radio does not use the connection. Electrical tape around it?

    What is a tape deck? :lol: Electrical tape should be fine. the pins are actually on the radio side, so as long as nothing gets stuck on the plug on the wire side, you should be good.

    (I actually have a turn table that I still use) Not in the truck though.
