....basically when i was changing my HU, i found that the MFD uses the remote wire (aka antenna lead...should be a blue cable) to know when the HU is on. So since i wasnt using any amps , for the time being, i just disconnecting the remote lead and it works (saves having to cut any wires). However, the the colours are correct - it should be a grey wire with a red strip. If you can find this, then just follow the blue remote lead into the iso block and then into the vaux radio loom. You might also find another wire going into the same connection (on my corsa B it was a black and white...havnt got a clue what it was though).

Hope this helps mate

just remember mate, when you want to install amps (ie: need the remote lead) your gonna have to cut that MFD cable, although you could tap a new remote lead from HU's remote (ie: not the vauxhalls loom, missing it out) wire.

anyways, glad it worked
