Hi all.

Does anybody have a diagram for the audio system? Ive had the iSO plug out of the rear of the stereo, but i need to know what speaker wires go where? I want to tap in to these wires using an iso connector so i leave the original block intact. So what colour wires go to the left, and which colour to the right speakers?
Would this info be on the workshop cd?

I would also like to know what wires come from the steering control stalk. although, i think thats on the can bus system?

Have a look in the sound system manual, I think the wiring diagrams in there. If not, I'll have a look elsewhere for you. unless someone knows off the top op their head.

Never fear, clarky's on the case :D

One thing you can do to narrow it down is look for 4 pairs of wires that are the same colour, they're you speaker cables.

And to narrow it down still further, to find out which wires are for which side, just touch a 1 1/2volt battery to the most likely wires and you'll hear the speaker on one side give a little thump ( if not then try again with different wires). Absolutely dead certain which wires connect to which side speaker then

That sounds like a good idea, especially as I can't make any sense of my eLearn disc :bang:

On the E-learn disk are schematics for the radio and all other electric equipment - the wires are codes in Italian abbreviations.
attached you'll find an explanation of the wiring codes in German - translate them to English and you will know which wire you are handling...

So which codes are for the four speakers?

I know what set of wires in the iso are for the speakers, so i guess all i got to do is use the wiring colour guide, and find the matching coloured wires in the iso block.

Thanks for the replies...(y)

That's the batt +ve and memory power both wired into the batt +ve, right Boz? I've done this too after a mate of mine told me to, was never sure why though, would make sense if the yellow is the radio memory though. :rolleyes:
