    Default Replace CD30 with Pioneer

    This used to be a simple job, but now I am a little confused. Maybe it's this CANBUS stuff.

    I am about to get an 07 plate SRi Vectra with CD30 in, and an amber text display screen for fuel, radio, etc.

    If I want to fit my Pioneer head unit - with which I successfully replaced a CD30/MP3 in a 56 plate Meriva without much problem - will I lose any functionality of the screen and fuel computer etc.

    I have the adaptor leads, steering wheel control adaptor, etc, but reading through this section of the forum I am seeing stuff about pairing HU with screens with Tech 2 and all that. Bit confused.com!!

    Was my Meriva CANBUS? If it was, then this unit worked fine.

    Any clarification gratefully recieved.

    I have sorted it now. The original steering wheel control adaptor did not work. Got a new loom to Pioneer interface lead, with an Autoleads PC99-X80 for the steering wheel controls on the Canbus of the Vectra.

    Now all works as it should, with the obvious exception of the Radio/CD info on the car display.
