    Cdx M8800

    Hi,
    I just aquired a Sony CDX M8800 ( http://www.sony.co.uk/product/ica-cd...0/tab/overview ) and was wondering what I need to fit it ? Is there any ISO adapter or something I can buy ? I took out the CDR 500 and realised the connection at the back is totally different! I'm a bit reluctant to ask the folks at Halfords in case they try and charge me for there advice!
    Cheers in adavance!

    That headunit will have a wiring loom on the bact that will plug straight into the 2 smaller connectors that you have left over from removing the CDR 500. All you need to do is swap the red and yellow wires over at the bullet connectors in the new wiring

    Same headunit I have lol.
    I'm guessing you got it 2nd hand so not got the loom with it?

    If you go to Halfords and just ask for an ISO adaptor loom they should know what you want
    One like this is what you want, though it shows 2 plugs and it should only be a single plug IIRC (2 plugs car side, 1 plug headunit side)

    Thanks for the replies guys.
    buckle, does that ISO adaptor cover using the steering controls and MFD to work, or is there an adaptor you can get for that too ?
    Cheers.

    The one buckle pointed out isn't the one you need, it's just a idea of what one end of the connection will look like

    Even once you have the right lead steering wheel control and having the radio data on your MFD will need extra parts

    I ahve an Autoleads PC9-106 which plugs into my Sony CDX-F7500 and used to me used on my ofl Sony which was similar to the one you have. It allos the use of the steering wheel controls to the following. Left: volume control and source selector Right: track change and mute.

    Pop into halfords and you should be able to pick one up The code above may be an old one
