    The wiring is for the MID to work,

    I got carried away with the BC switch and forgot you have your OBC on the dash, thinking e36

    well if is more than just the adaptor to get it working i'll give it a miss. I'm happy enough fiddling round with mechanicals but not electrics. :(

    cheers again.

    well ive bought the adaptor as i thought i might as well give it a go. i picked all the bits up at a good price so i can always sell them on and not lose any money.

    Got the adaptor and it makes absolutely no sense to me, i'm hoping when i take the glove box out it'll be more understandable but all the X**** numbers mean nothing to me at the moment

    fitetd the wiring harness/adaptor-what an absolute bitch. you need hands like a 5 year old!!lots of swearing later and i got it all wired up put everything back, reconnected the battery, ignition on and................

    sound but no display and then the sound turned off after 10 secs-B******S!!!!!

    does that mean it needs coding? i'm a bit concerned about there being no display though if there was sound?
