    Default Time AND Date Displayed ?

    Could do with some help here guys, i have an aftermarket HU and i notice when i turn it off the date miraculously appears on the dash screen !
    Then dissappears when i turn it on again.....
    Engine running during this process(ign on)
    My question is..... how the heck does it know i have turned the HU off ?
    If it is to do with the ISO blocks (but NOT the display and steering control one) then can it be fooled into displaying the date fulltime ??

    Vectra 03 with 2005 HU taken out

    Cheers in advance....

    Pin 5 on the ISO coming from the radio is the electric aerial wire and triggers the screen to shut the bottom line off so that data from the original headunit can be displayed on it. You can keep the date by cutting and insulating (or just removing) that wire.

    However, be warned, if you use an aftermarket steering wheel control adaptor, it will stop it working too if you do.
