The wiring loom adapter has two loose wires that it states need to be connected to the Hazard Warning pins. The quadlock adapter doesnt coonect into the cars power and illumination circuit via the standard connection these are extra wires required.
Hence I need access to the hazard warning plug.
Yes they are on the standard ISO connector but not on the vehicle loom as far as I understand it - hence when you use the quadlock adapter you need to join a couple of wires. I might try to see what happens if I dont connect them first!
Well I have tried the unit without connecting the two wires into the Hazard lights - as I guessed no joy!
I have got to the harzard plug, the switch plugs in from the fron and I have no access to the wires still - also there only seem to be a few pins, not 18 - I am supposed to connect into 18!!
Please HELP I have a lovely JVC stereo that want playing!!
New Vec C has quad lock, my is still on ISO so I haven't got this problem.
Unfortunantly I don't know about needing to take power from hazard light switch. I know on the new Astra we have to take ignition 12volts from hazard light switch.
You can get illumination from light switch in dash (if you really wanted illumination) and ignition I have sourced on back of fuse board behind glove box on mine.
What I did was connect the yellow wire that needed power to the red wire on the quadlock adapter - now the unit is powered all the time (no ignition).
As for the illumination I didnt bother - the unit has enough lights!
I also managed to squeeze a line out lead through into my glovebox so an MP3 player can sit in there
