    Another simple but daft question....

    Again about steering wheel control adapters.

    Clarion

    Steering wheel controls only

    Older (2003) models
    Part No: CLA-V2 and CLA-09OP
    These interfaces work by changing the hard wired line into an infra-red signal which is received by the IR receiver of the head-unit.
    Price: CLA-V2: £53.99 and CLA-09OP £11.49
    Compatibility: Most models

    Newer (2004) models
    2 types exsist: Hardwired and infra-red
    Part No(Interface): RCE-103W (hard-wired) or RCE-103F (Infra Red)
    Part No(Harness): CCE-109
    Price: For the Harness and Interface £30 - £50
    Compatibility: All models except AB243R/RG, DB248R/RB and DB148R

    The above is for clarion headunits which is what ive just ordered...... this one here.... http://www.cel-direct.com/shop1.asp?...roductID=3450#

    I still cant find anywhere that sells the adapters and do I need a harness? Basically what exactly do I buy as I'll order wrong thing otherwise

    Thanks.

    autoleeds sell them im not sure if there only car specific or also unit specific. when you install the harness its a good idea to split the block of the ISO in the car into 2 parts (eg power block and speaker block) because the harness thats supplied has 2 blocks not 1.

    saves a lot of headache trying to squeeze 2 into 1

    Excellent choice in headunit.


    Give Cel-direct a call mate. Speak to either Andy or Paul and they will sort you out with the correct lead and harness. I would get the hardwired one RCE-103W and the Harness CCE109 but Andy or Paul will adivse you on which of the two is the best.

    Seems to have lost all recent posts on my pc.

    Just to say what I wrote before:

    I rung Cel and they told that the part I require is CLA-V2 and CLA-090P. I hope they are correct as its a special order I cant get a refund I made them double check so hope its ok. Guy on the phone seemed to know Basil and was very friendly. Ive ordered the bits and it came to £72.90 and then £2 for postage so £75. Its costly and im now well overdrawn but needed.

    Also just received the controller for my headunit through the post. I though I should have got one but was a bit confused to ring as I only got batteries. Shows they are a good company as they both to send products I did not even report missing. Well done guys, and especially to Steve who sent me the remote.

    Lets hope I can get the headunit out again now as ive had a little go before and it seems stuck lol
