The harness is only half there , you dont have the plug that goes into the fuse panel ( you need this plug). That console will work . An A-pillar is the trim cover that is on the drivers side front windsheild . you have to take it off to run the wire down to the plug in the fuse panel . NO do not just tape the wires , you can crimp them but the best way would be to solder the wires then shrink wrap then ( thats how we do it at the plant ) , you can get a half decent solder gun for a few $$ at radio shack .
