    No idea waht a tracer is. You should have a long thin red plug with red & white RCA's which plug into the rear RCA's of the new HU and a flying lead which needs to connect to the power antenna or "remote on" on the new HU.

    There are 2 types of adapter, speaker input (which uses a hi-lo converter) and straight RCA input (no adapter). You need the straight RCA one.
