Default Wiring for iPod connection kit.. Help please! - 14th January 2015, 11:49 AM

OK, so I currently have the Mini installed iPod connecting kit (circa 2009) but no phone and i'm upgrading to the Dension 500s Gateway with DAB and bluetooth
I've just removed the cover to the 'secret' compartment and found the MOST connectors are just where I needed them to be, what I need is advice on the power

The Dension needs a live and earth (red/black) feed

The current connection has
brown (i assume earth)
Red/yellow (I'm assuming live)
And a thinner cable that is best described as Lilac with a thin red stripe.


Anyone able to point me in the direction of which they are without dismantling my dash to trace it back to the head unit?
I've seen this file, but need help decoding:

The iPod connector kit will be for sale once this is in....

Cheers
Jason

Hope the fitting goes well. Are you doing this all yourself?

Let us know how it turns out would be very interested to see how that piece of kit works

Yes I am
Not so good so far as the unit bricked itself on an update so had to be sent back to Dension to unbrick. Then they returned it without a few essential bits
Still waiting
Hi Hum......,
