    Default head unit upgrade

    Hi
    I just bought a new head unit with a reversing camera. The unit is super.
    The unit has got a cabel named "reverse" in the harness.
    What is the purpose of this? Does it give out 12v when you put it in reverse or should you feed it 12v to make the input switch to the reversing camera?
    Also, does anyone know if its OK to take power from the bulbs regarding the canbus?

    You connect it to the reversing lights wire that feeds the rear reversing lights, so that it knows when you've stuck it in reverse, this is for when you've fitted a reversing camera so it knows to display it on screen.

    Welcome to the forum, btw, this thread will get moved very shortly I imagine

    Im not sure what you mean by vcmmi but its spesial for vectra. Anyways there is and extra harness with cables named "brake" and its not connected. Now Ive got a warning light with "check brake light switch" and ESP and Im not sure what to do with it.
    Im thinking about replacing the original Headunit
