What’s the best/easiest way to do that?

Power it with 12v to the red and ground it and test the yellow RCA to something that accepts it. I used my living room TV

I'm looking to do this retrofit, but want to use the better emulator with the dynamic lines. Is Carsystems the emulator of choice, in that case? I posted a WTB in case someone has one floating around and emailed them, too, but they only take MoneyGram or Western Union for payment.

Has anyone else ordered direct in the past from them or has anyone had issues ordering direct? Thanks!

If anyone is looking for the plug and play emulator (with the quad lock harness), PM me. Went with another option as it won't work with my configuration (6MT and no PDC).

Can some please repost their trace file for their cic? I have a 2011 lci cic e92 and I think I may have turned off a setting whine coding as my bluetooth is stuck on "please wait" and my radio has no audio.

Anyone may no what is causing this?

Thanks!

Did you use an extension harness? Did you move over the MOST fiber cables?

Everything else works on my car. Even the backup camera works like a charm. The only issue that I am noticing is the volume not working on my radio and my bluetooth is showing "Please wait". I do not recall moving over the fiber cables. Where were they attached to? Do they get attached to the quadlock harness?

Thanks man!

If you look in the first post, there a green wire and black ribbed wire that needs to connect to the lock on the unit. You just need to unclip it from the original harness and move it over.

Hey guys, sorry if this has been covered already, but this thread is massive and I haven't read all 46+ pages yet. Will this work on a 2006 with first gen CCC? I don't even know if backup camera was an option in '06... the screen is certainly very lo-def so I don't know if it would work...?
