    help with my HU install

    Have tried hooking up my Hu this morning, but pretty sure ive been given the wrong wiring harness, but i just can not find any relative info regarding the setup.
    Can anyone shed any light pls?
    What other cables/connectors do i need for this setup?

    I was under the impression you need a Can Bus emulator for the power. Unlike a lot of cars, ours use the Canbus to turn the radio on, so dont have the normal switched live wire.
    I ran my own from the fuse box.

    Whilst that link is exspensive, its not enough to include an emulator i think they are that sort of cost alone.

    Whats the problem ?
