    Default 12V Live

    Hi,

    Hope someone can help. Replacing my CD30 unit with an aftermarket bluetooth ipod set up. Have got all harnesses, fascias, adaptors etc but apparently I need to wire the red wire on the new unit to a 12v live feed. Is there an easy way to do this? I'm not too competent when it comes to electrics nor do I have anyone close by to assist. Any advice would be most helpful.
    Thanks Phil

    You could take it to the 12v cig lighter feed underneath the cig lighter/power socket just under the radio, just cut into the wire and split off. Easy to remove the trim/power socket and the wires are under it might be better access under the ashtray.

    If you have bought the iso adaptor for your car then there will be a permanent live and and ignition live coming from the new iso adaptor. Permanent live could be either yellow or red depending on where you bought the iso adaptor from... HTH

    my cig lighter didn't have a permanent live feed, so ran a wire straight from the battery through a grommet behind the glovebox.
    used inline fuse just incase.

    Thanks guys,

    Got the harness on ebay with no instructions. I'll try the cigarette lighter. Thanks for your assistance.
