There are various patch cables you will have to get to connect in to the original wiring. One of these has a unit which connects to the stalk control wiring. Expect to pay £40 plus for it! I got mine ( a Pioneer but not dab) from Halfords and they spent some time explaining and finding on their database all the connectors I would need. Good service, they even got the fitter to come out and chat to me about it, even tho I was fitting it myself.

Yes you will need to buy an additional cable/lead to re-enable the steering column control feature.

I decided to save myself the money however and simply extend my left arm slightly to reach the radio controls in the centre-dash, it's tricky, but doable :-)

Does this not mean you have to have bespoke suits and coats now? Surely false economy. :whistle:
