    Default cd player

    hey.. looking to replace the mp3 player in my 2004 signum with one which has an aux in / usb in / mp3 cd playing capabilty : )

    my mrs has the cd player in her car at the moment but she is trading the car in during the week so i'll whip it out and put the factory fitted one back in her car

    question is, if i fit it in the sig (once i buy the correct fascia) - will the steering wheel controls for the cd player still work?

    cheers

    Depends on the stereo. Some have the ability to work with wheel controls, others do not. You need a wiring adopter even if there is that capability. You may find that you loose functionality in the trip computer screen. I have read that you can not reset the clock unless the original stereo is fitted.

    You will need to purchase some adapters from somewhere like halfords.
    Will need 2 parts, one specific to the car and one specific to the stereo.
    Thinks they are made by audioleads

    it looks like it has adaptors attached (i.e. that were used when it was wired up to the punto?)

    ...here's another question then - these reason i want to put the other cd player into the signum is because it has an aux in meaning i can play my mp3 player through the sound system.

    can anyone suggest an easier way to hook up an mp3 player/ipod through aux in rather than replacing the cd player??

    I don't think there is an easier Aux method if your car (like my Vectra) lacks a factory fitted Aux option. Have read threads about fitting an Aux, but looks harder than changing the head unit.
