Font Material property Measuring instrument Parallel Camera accessory

What are A & B for or their purpose? Not enough info from online.

Got home at midnight last night. Stayed up for 5hrs to research.

I tried looking in my 2011 service manual but the "Sirius Radio" section does not have a "components and components location" section?!?! WTH?

It shows this for the Audio Unit component and component location - but not for the Sirius Radio:

Rectangle Font Material property Schematic Parallel


I looked through all the associated sections but no breakdown for the Sirius Radio connections!

The online manual I bought has the same stereo info as yours.

Been looking online for info. Haven't found anything yet.

The OEM/factory navigation GPS stereo powers on. But can't get the sound/audio on, hooked on. I don't know if my Kia has that/those other plug n play harness wires already installed.

The HVAC doesn't accept the wires/plugs harness from the manual HVAC. Only one plug goes in.

Maybe it's simply a plug for a different radio? I don't know how many options there are for different radios, but that's all I can think of. Maybe multi disc/backup camera/am/fm/satellite/bluetooth/shamalamadingdong?
