    Default Anyone know what this plug is for?

    Hi guys
    Have removed my CDR2005 VDO siemens Head Unit from my Veccy and this is the plug that came out of the back of the stereo.

    The middle plug and the right hand side one are clearly the ISO connectors but does anyone know what the one on the left is for? They are all moulded together as one single plug but cannot work out what this plug is for at all.
    Thanks

    That will contain the non standard audio connections, like the speed pulse, dash display and steering wheel controls etc, stuff like that.

    Looks like the old stereo/display connectors from a Veccy b.
    Similar to this.


    Top two being stereo leads, bottom is display connector.

    Spot on. You can split the block off if you want to fit a parrot kit then you dont have to get the extra lead. If thats what your up to give us a shout, ive done it to my 2005 vdo HU.

    Hi Rushy,
    How did you split the block off? The only way I can see doing this is to to actually cut the plastic that joins the blocks toegther?

    Yep thats what you have to do. The only down side in taking this short cut is the iso block needs a little bit of persuasion to get it back into the HU. If you connect the kit up and the power of the phone kit flashes then thats the canbus kicking in. Its very easy to get round, so if you get stuck give us a shout.
