Hi,

Not exactly ZR related, but I'm hoping someone who knows their ICE stuff might be able to help. I bought a Blaupunkt headunit for my Dad's Citroen C5.

Only problem is, when we fit it, it's going to lose the steering wheel controls.

Does anyone know the best place to try and find an appropriate adaptor/smart lead to get this to work? I've had a search round the internet and can't find anything as yet - can't believe theres not one available though!

Cheers in advance if anyones got any ideas? :up:

Thanks for your help guys.

Found a company called Blue Spot who were pretty helpful. Apparently the newer French cars like Citroens and Renaults use a Vehicle Area Network in their cars.

Makes it more difficult to make leads for them but does allow for easier interface to steering wheel controls, seperate displays etc if you know what you're doing.

Yes that's £60 for a bloody adaptor!! Half the price of the actual head unit :x:
