    confused Pioneer Headunit - Connection Problems

    Hi all,

    Got a Pioneer AVH-8400BT headunit (http://www.pioneer.eu/uk/products/25...0BT/index.html) to go into my pre-faclift Vectra C SRi CDTi 120. Now from what I can tell this car is full can-bus due to the scrollers on the steering wheel.

    I am having problems with knowing exactly what cables I need to purchase to get the headunit working in the car! I previously had a mix of autoleads and connects2 and the unit was really temperamental.

    So, I have decided to start from scratch again! What I have so far:

    Pioneer AVH-8400BT Headunit --> http://www.pioneer.eu/uk/products/25...0BT/index.html <--
    Connects2 CAN-Bus Interface CTCVX01 --> http://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/conne...r-p-34490.html <--
    Connects2 Pioneer Stalk Adapter CTPIONEERLEAD --> http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/8653.html <--

    All the above gives me at the moment is a cable that converts from the Pioneer standard to ISO (supplied with the headunit) and one which connects from the quadlock connector on the car back to quadlock (the Connects2 CAN-Bus interface).

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks.
    Pete.
