Good to be back as it's been a while.
Need help with steering wheel control issue.
I have installed a Sony DSX S100 also a Connects 2 stalk control adapter. All works ok but the SWC lights only work when using radio.
When I switch modes to ipod or aux the SWC lights go out & the date displays on the upper car display.
The buttons still perform there functions just no illumination.
After posting this on 'the other side' im told that its because the SWC is currently bieng powerd by the radio ariel power feed therfore the illumination goes out when selecting othe modes.
To cure this I would have to connect the 'Remote' amp wire instead.
I understand there is a blue & white wire on the stereo loom that is not connected this being the 'Remote amp'.
My question is what do I connect it to & how ?
This last bit confuses me cos i,m told that there are x2 blue wires to 'a' connector & to cut one & then connect the 'Remote Amp'
Which connector? Stereo,Adapter,Car ???
Or is this all wrong ?
Would be nice to have the SWC illuminated for all modes as have already sacrificed the cars channel display.
Hope someone can shed some light on this,the chap(s) on 'the other side' are very helpful but am still confused.
Also the thought of cutting any wires gives me the willies although with the right info i'll give it a go.
Hope one of you can help
