Found you guys while searching for some help on the internet and hoping you will be able to help me.
I'm trying to install a "Blaupunkt Santa Cruz MP34" stereo into my Astra 2002, which has steering wheel controls.
Firstly i was surprised when I removed the current stereo (CDR 500 CD) to find it had standard mountings at the back to push the stereo into so thought it was going to be easy.
Pushed the blaupunkt in and it works (has power) however it constantly displays "Phone" on the display and is muted. I am guessing that my car is sending a signal down one of the cables to say its in phone mode. I would have tried blocking off these wires but as it just "pushes in" I can't get to the wiring at the back.
Also I have read a few things on the net about having to swap two cables on a vauxhall to do with keeping the memory? Again how would i do this with the connectors set so far back in the dash?
And finally my stereo claims to do steering wheel controls but is it likely to work with my astra? Below is a couple of pics of the wiring on the back of the blaupunkt.
Many thanks in advance
