    VE SSV 6.0 Manual
    Hi all. Just bought a 2010 VE SSV 6 SPD manual. Loving it. I was under the dash today, looking to see if the GPS module was there. It wasn't.

    Anyways, while I was there I found what looks like an after market wire heading to the drivers side of the head unit. I followed it away and the closest I could get was that it runs along under the dash and disappears somewhere near your right knee.

    It's labelled PJ with some white DYMO label. The car is a series 1 but was fitted with a series 2 head unit by Holden when bought new (through a third party installer). That's about all I know. I'm thinking it may be something to do with the install?

    I've googled my butt off but can't find anything.

    Pics below. Thanks in advance

    Is there a multi CD player or sub woofer amp in the system because it looks like shielded audio cable to me from the photo.

    I believe that's for Video input. Either a DVD stacker or most likely rear camera.

    If you search for the make and model of head unit you will probably find a manual for it on line and be able to see what the input is for.

    Looks like it is the cable already installed as part of the wiring loom depending on order for IQ with sat nav or not. I think if it has sat nav that plug actually plugs into a piggy back unit that sits outside the main unit.

    Thanks all. After your tips I had a squiz at the reversing camera. Yep, that's it. I was really hoping for something like ASIO bug or similar though.

    Thanks again.
