    Default PARROT MKi9100 - NO POWER HELP

    I bought a Parrot MKi9100 kit for my Vectra. Installed it last weekend, using one of those converter cables which has the ISO connectors on. Plugged it all in, but there is no power to the Parrot.

    My question is, even though you are using the ISO converter leads, do you still need to wire the red power, orange power and the earth manually somewhere else, or does it take it's power from the ISO lead? I assumed that it did take it's power from the converter lead. All fuses are OK, and the converter lead does have two fuse holders with fuses in, so am I being stupid or is there something more sinister?

    It's connected to my CD70 NAV.

    Also where is the best place to put all the wires. I guessed probably in the small area to the left of the centre console next to the head unit, between the head unit area and the glovebox. Where has anyone else put the mountain of wires?

    Hope some of you out there can help me.

    Thanks in advance.

    The Quad lock to ISO leads do not offer an ING feed on the Vectra,Astra or Zafira, you'll need to pull that off the car somewhere, behind the glove box there is a bunch of cable's, there are a few blacks in there which will give ignition,

    Once you've done that is should be fine mate

    Cheers guys, just been reading another Parrot kit fitting instruction on this forum, says just what you guys say.

    Thanks a million, will give it another go at the weekend. Looks like my gues of place to put the control box and the wires was right too. I didn't take the glove box out before, so it was very awkward. Thanks again!!

    There's a blue wire on the SOT lead that is the one to connect to a switched live. The red and orange leads need to be swapped at the fuse holders.

    Haven't been brave enough to try again yet, will do so this weekend. So do you need to run all three wires, switched live, permanent live and earth?

    I wired mine in the other week to make it all work properly. Took the feed off the ciggy lighter and used the dreaded 'scotch lock' connector for it... the rest of the wires were left as normal...

    Stumbling block straight away. I can't figure out how to get the glovebox out. I've removed the three torx screws at the top, but can't figure out how to get it out after that, can't see any more screws. I thought I could just drop down the actual tray bit, and then remove it completely. Help!!!
