NNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

why wont people be lazy for fs anyway i did similar not long ago bought an ISO connector off ebay all works one plug

but future reference now i guess!~

basically if you have cut the plugs off i cant tell you which pin it is so........
your stereo should have an "electric aerial/antenna" wire labelled out the back of it?

attach one end of a test light to this wire (touching wire duh)
ign on AND stereo on
start probing the wirning with the other end of test light
(led one fine and led one wont fry other LIGHT circuits in that harness e.g. stereo cntrls blah blah blah)
until the aerial goes up :idea3:
(will take a 2 second signal with a single led test light to start aerial moving)
once found CONNECT IT (DUH)

this without connectors in car is only way i can think of directly finding the correct wire that need the small amperage power signal to operate switch unit for aerial

good luck!~

I've also never done the patch test thingy which probably does make me stupid lol cause i guess i could one day have a reaction that could have been avoided so even tho I don't do it I would definately make sure you do the test.

VX S-pack Commodore
hay iv got a 2001 vx s-pack commodore and when i went to wire up my 6x9s into the rear door speaker wires i say that there were about 50 different wires going into each rear door all bundled up. so my question is which wires are the speaker wires and which ones are negative and positive and how hard is it to actually got into the wires
(i am willing to lose the rear speakers completely so that my 6x9s cand work in the parcel shelf)
(i have checked heaps of other threads and links on the net but nothing is exactly simple to follow and lead me down a dead end so any help will be grate)
