    Question Steering wheel Adapter

    Im guessing this might have been covered before but I couldnt find a post that really spelt it out to a newbie like me so im sorry if this is repeating.

    I have a sony aftermarket HU to replace my CD2005 and I would like to get an adapter so i can use my steering controls and am totally confused about which 1 suits my car. I have a 2002 vectra with 6 buttons on the steering wheel and no jog wheel so is half canbus I think. I got an autoleads PC99-X45 adapter with the relevant sony patch cable which I was informed would work on my car but it clearly doesnt! I have seen the connect2 adapters that will work but i carnt really be arsed to spend £60 quid just to be lazy so if anybody can help by letting me know if there is an autoleads adapter that will work with my car I would be a happy bloke. Oh also there are 3 connection blocks on the original audio harness 2 I know to be vauxhall iso connectors but what is the 3rd one for?

    Thankyou guys

    On almost all of the adaptor leads you usually have to swap the permanent live and switched live wires over because the switched one cant cope with the current draw the adaptor needs. Had the same problem with mine.

    And yes, the one with 6 buttons is the pre-facelift half canbus.

    Nope I changed the switched and 12v in leads around and still no controls although when I dis-connect the power my HU now beeps and sometimes goes into radio search??? there seems to be a number of connections on the 1 block that are not used by the adapter ( this is so frustrating
