Re: au car radio

You mean the pins you need to take the headunit out? I can get access to them if that's what you were after and would be glad to help if you lived in Geelong.

Re: au car radio

i just got the radio without the car (i am aware of the security code problem)

i just know that it has 12 pins of the low half of the plug and about 10 in top, with the 2 outers pins being thicker than the rest

that's all i got at the moment =)

Re: au car radio

So it sounds like it just has the one plug right? (apart from the ariel plug).

Is it double DIN?

What does it have - single CD, CD and Tape, 6-disk in-built stacker or some combination of these?

If it sounds similar to an AU2/3 one, then I can give you the pinouts, but I'm unsure whether they'd apply to an AU1 which I think had a couple of different head units.

Re: au car radio

Double DIN means it's twice the height of the common head units you see in the shops etc. so the face is not so much like a rectangle shape but closer to square - like two normal head units sitting on top of each other. - All AU2/3 head units were double DIN AFAIK and I believe there was at least one single DIN ('regular' size) in the AU1 range.

According to the manual, as well as to my knowledge, every AU2/3 head unit had at least a single CD player, so it's sounds like yours must be from an AU1 maybe.

Also, the main plug on the AU2/3 is different according to the manual, with only 8 pins on top. I will give you the pinouts anyway for the AU2/3, connector 186 (which is the main one and is common on all the head units in the range). Just keep in mind, it sounds like yours is a different unit so this may mean nothing to you (ie. don't assume yours will be the same or similar to this), but it's all I got - may proove of use at some point:

I am listing the function of each pin, one after the other and when you are looking at the back of the head unit holding it the right way up - I will do the top row first and then the bottom row - from left to right:

TOP ROW
1- Ground
2- Dimming
3- R/LH speaker pos.
4- R/RH speaker pos.
5- F/LH speaker neg.
6- F/RH speaker neg.
7- Illumination
8- Battery pos.

BOTTOM ROW
1- External controls
2- External controls
3- Diagnostics
4- R/LH speaker neg.
5- Unlisted (unused)
6- R/RH speaker neg.
7- F/LH speaker pos.
8- Power antenna
9- F/RH speaker pos.
10- VSS signal
11- Blanked (unused)
12- Accessories

Re: au car radio

If you need to you should be able to go to the dealer and get a copy of the car's audio wiring diagram. I got this when I upgraded the factory HU to my Pioneer MP3 HU. was pretty helpful.
