A few months back I replaced my standard fit CD30 head unit in my Zafira B (2007) with an Alpine unit.
I knew at the time that I was going to give me a problem when the clocks change (like next week in the UK), as the CD30 unit gave an RDS signal to the dash display for auto-updates and also had the necessary push buttons to change the date/time manually.
So with my Alpine fitted I can't change the clock, well not without taking my Alpine unit out of the dash every 6 months to gain access to the harness and plug in my CD30 for the controls.
I was thinking of piggy-backing off the original socket cables, specifically the data cables that aren't included in a standard adaptor kit, then leave this socket looped into say the glove box and I could plug my CD30 into it as required.
How have other up-graders gotten around this problem ?
Or where can I buy a 'fully' wired socket harness to extend it myself ?
Any feedback would be appreciated
