    ours didnt have a 3.5mm jack input for the steering controls on the back of the stereo, we had a blue wiring coming off the wiring harness, and i had to buy the stereo specific patch cable with a cut wire rather than the 3.5 jack

    it looks like yours is the same, look at the first picture there is a blue wire dissapearing behind the gearstick, that might be the one where the bare wire would crimp to

    blue wire, in the first pic you can see it go behind the gearstick with a spade connector on the end, usually it will be marked steering wheel controls or similer

    Good job mate I think we're getting somewhere. I plugged the blue one in to another blue one and now have what does indeed appear to be a bare cable. Where did you say this goes?

    when i bought the stereo specific patch lead (about £3/£4) i made sure i bought one which has a bare wire rather than the 3.5mm jack on the end, then that blue wire plugged into the bare wire on the patch lead

    Alright the patch terminology is confusing me a bit, I'm just trying to learn this so although it may be obvious to you, it isn't to me. I Haven't tested it as it yet though. I dont even know what that shiny box thing is, and which way it should be plugged in, looks like a 50/50 chance or it doesn't matter.

    Do you mean the cable that comes out of that should be connected to that bare blue wire I have? If so, that looks like I'd be connecting an input to an input.

    sorry, basically, when you buy the kit to work an aftermarket stereo, you will need the wiring specific for a certain car, ie vectra, then you buy a small patch lead specific to the make of the stereo eg jvc. which plugs into the main black box of your leads
    some stereos have a headphone socket on the back of the stereo, so you would just plug in the plug you have there, other stereos have a blue wire, you need to get the right patch lead for your stereo.
    eg, this one here in the link, is suitable for a jvc with the socket in the back of the stereo
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JVC-STEERI...item4163ccab46
    this one is if you have the blue wire to connect to
