    There is a can-bus interface adapter you can buy. That would make it work for definate. Don't ask Halfrauds though they'll look at you blankly. look for www.celsusice.co.uk if you phone up speak to paul he's top daddy on canbus. Tell him Tom from Southend told you to call him.

    Thanks Orka i'll give them a bell tomorrow,do you know if they're expensive?.Blaupunkt couldn't be more helpful,i spent 2hrs one day with one of the technical bods trying different combinations of headunit and interface this combination worked then 99%, ordered one in,works 0% when the engines running!

    Just fitted an autoleads PC99-X45 adapter,it works!.Brought it from car audio plus for £41 inc p&p,a tip for anyone else, it comes configured without an ignition feed (added one) so the key won't control the stereo, minor point though.
