    What sort of head unit?

    If its in your VS then you will have a orange/white stripe for constant power connect this wire to your yellow wire on your headunit...

    As for your red or ACC wire that needs to be joined to a single yellow wire which is all in the same wiring loom as the factory head unit.

    Hope this helps......cheers

    actually, shouldnt the red wire on the hed unit be 12V constant and the yellow one is accessories? So you connect red wire on HU to orange/white on car and then yellow on HU to the yellow wire on the car?

    You can try that...and it will still work.......

    However everytime you turn the key off you will have to reset the headunit...ie clock, radio presets etc.....

    cheers
