      Did you buy the farka adaptor?

      Also you need to remove the blue aerial power lead that comes out of the radio, as this doesn't connect to anything in the cars loom.

      You connect this blue lead to the farka adaptor.

          I installed a Alpine, so the socket on the HU was the other type. So I pulled the banana socket on the fakra adaptor apart and soldiered it straight into the alpine. Neat job. I could of spent another £5 and brought an adaptor.

          You'll notice in the above link a blue lead loose in the picture, this connects to your aerial power output from your HU. The blue/turquoise socket connects to the car and the silver one goes into your aerial socket on your HU Make sure thats the one that fits, or you'll have to buy the adaptor or do a DIY job
