plug 21 should plug into the harness in the dash since you don't have nav.

plug 2 goes to the factory antenna. Mine came with an extension cable for that to reach the back.

That should be all I think.

Since you don't have nav I wouldn't think a cable would be needed to reach the back like it is on the nav unit. What happens when you plug in 21 to the plug in the dash?

Does the radio power up?

I do have NAV.

I was trying to make it more complicated than it is. I decided to turn on the key and see what happened and it fired up. However, I have no sound. I have no idea what I should do and it is time to quit for the night. Your input please.

Just noticed I must have pulled the power connections off the amp when I moved it. I'll start there tomorrow.

Well with nav you need to run a wire from plug 20 to the white wire in the rear. This wire turns the amp on. But if you have replaced the amps then you need plug 20 hooking to the amp trigger wire on your aftermarket amps.

So is your x5 stock right now or not?

So would this apply to me as well?

No NAV and NO DSP

I wouldn't need the wire we spoke of before? Or still do?

Those instructions were for the tablet radio not the radio I have which I think is the one you bought too right?

With no nav and no dsp try just plugging into the harness in the dash and see what happens. If you get sound and if there is a place to plug the antenna into then your good to go.

Ok, so just disconnect my stock radio at the dash, and try connecting that connector to the new Seicane?
