    Wiring in Dension Ice link

    Hi,

    I have bought a Dension Fm ice link so that I can play my Ipod through the car speakers, Its supposed to be straight forward to wiring in, but not to me !!, it has 3 wires Black for ground, red for constant +12v, purple for switched +12v, I have to scotch lock them in but to what wires ?? Seems theres a lot of them and colours in the back of my CD30 in my 2007 Zafira, I know it sounds obvious but there are more than one of these colours.
    Please help !!

    Cheers,

    Gavin.

    Fitted 2 of these in the past week

    Black - ground to Brown wire going to the radio
    Red - battery live to Red wire going to the radio
    Purple - switched live........ You can wire this up to ignition which is a black wire going to the switches above the radio but in my experience you then won;t get any radio reception if you listen to the radio without the ignition. What i've been doing is going to the pin labled "AR" on the radio which is a swithed live output. You'll need to insert a pin or something for it to make contact as there's no wire in this postion

    Excellent, Thankyou. Do I really need the switched live ? what would happen if I dont use it and hang it free?

    Will have a go tomorrow, once again many thanks.

    If you don't use the purple wire the adaptor won't work or if you join it to the red it will always be on and flatten the battery
