Dave2302 Hi,

It is usually the Blue in the Androids big Plug with Earth and B+, but if it doesn't have it their then connect the one (probably Blue and labelled 'Ant') in the "SWC etc" Harness, goes to Blue / Black on the Cars COMAND Plug, if you don't have Blue Black at COMAND Plug then you most likely don't need to connect it especially if your Radio Reception is good, if it's non existant or awful you'll have to get back to us ......................

"Was your Radio Reception OK on COMAND ?" will be my first question at that point

If you connect it to CANBUS you probably don't need it.

Rollwitme25 @cowboyt although pin 1 is grey and pin 11 is solid blue. Everything else matches up. still haven't been able to get the can hooked up so she's still hardwired. I found the can wires in the grey plug in pins 15 and 16 though. currently have my aftermarket sub and amp hooked up. remote wire has a switch to cut power when the cars off. Bit of a ghetto set up but it works for now until I get it right. she's my daily so I gotta have some kind of music lol

cowboyt Happens, man. :-)

Most of these Android head units have such a diagram. I believe that Seicane's units have them, and I know that Erisin's units also do.

Dave2302 If the unit is powering on without the CAN Decoder you have wired too many connections specifically the Acc Wire should not be connected .....................

I'm sick of typing "DO NOT CONNECT ALL THOSE OTHER WIRES" every time a member is wiring up an Android on any Car equipped with CAN they are not used, they are only used for install on a "lesser" Car !!

And no "Resistors" needed.

One more time ..................

Speakers .............. 8 wires

Batt + 1 wire

Earth 1 wire

Antenna Wake Up 1 wire

CAN Bus 2 wires

That is it !!

This is all in the Android sticky at the top of the Forum Page.

Huachipato I regret not pulling 2 extra wires for the amp on trigger and reverse light power (assuming there is a power feed for the reverse camera). But I did pull an RCA for each speaker out and for the reverse camera feed.

cowboyt All my cars came to me secondhand as well. You will find that the M113 V8 engine and the 722.6 transmission are *very* tough, and while nothing is absolutely bulletproof, they can withstand a surprising amount of neglect and still be OK.

Whatever you do, please, for the love of the FSM, don't put "Chinesium", as we call it, on your car. Your car deserves better. "Chinesium" = "made in China junk". Turns out OE parts are A.) typically not much more than Chinesium, and B.) really are less money in the long run. They really are.

Rollwitme25 @cowboyt only about 10k of those are from me. I don't think the previous owner took much care of it as I would. I'm doing my best to keep her running well. Still getting down a lot of how mb designed their vehicles. Much different than my usual Chevy lol. I've taken a liking to the 220s though. From the air struts to the secondary air injection. My only issue is how expensive some parts are. I can find some non OEM parts for cheap. But some things you can't go cheap. Its like buying generic toaster pastries, just not as good as pop tarts lol
