hi,

yeah,the alpine headunits require power from the battery coz they so powerful! i helped my bro wire his up. basically,from your iso adaptor,there is a ground lead on it already! i cant remeber,but i think all u do is connect the iso lead to the unit and it will be grounded? I cant remember,does the headunit have a seperate ground lead coming out from it? if so,connect it to the ground lead on ur existing iso connector.

I have got an alpine HU and all i did was take the yellow wire and the red wires and swap the plugs so the yellow was with the red and the red with the yellow. The reason is that with the VX ISO, the yellow and red leads are in the wrong place to wire up with the standard plugs - i.e the red is where the yellow should be and the yellow where the red should be. Look at the wires on the VX ISO plug and you will see.

You shouldnt need a seperater earth as the standard ISO is earthed and therefore as Johnny says, just plug it in. :lol:

I got an interface lead with the red/yellow with interchangeable plug in line so I swop em over on a vaux. With regards to earth, never had any probs, just use the standard.

If you feel you want more, use the thread on the back and run a 1.5mm cable from it to a non-painted chassis point giving you a bwetter ground connection.

Kash just wondering, see how i asked you in another topic about me loosing all my radio settings, is this the same kinda thing you were talkin about, swapping the RED and YELLOW wires over????

Do i swap them over on the vaux iso connector thats in the car or on the headunit iso???

Yes it's the same thing, and as long as you only make one swap, it don't matter where mate.

I have got a lead with ISO' on each end, and the red and yellow both have an in-line bullet connector. these can be swapped over to resolve this problem.

I changed mine on the lead, saves farting about with the standard electrics, but it's up to you how you do it.

Hope this helps :wink:

Cheers Kash, swapping the wires has done the trick.

It was drivin me mad having to set it all up again everytime i switched the bloody thing on.
