So the long cable seicane sent is connected to the seicane radio up front and connected to the harness you removed from the radio module in the hatch area right?

I thought you needed the Ibus setup to trigger the DSP amplifier? I thought that's what was mentioned earlier in the thread.

Without the factory radio in the loop, the DSP amp either turns on and has audio for a short time (~20 seconds I think) or does not give output at all as in your case. I've read reports of both happening I believe.

I was surprised to read about the trigger wire for the DSP amp allowing sound earlier in the thread. I'm still hoping that is the case, but I'm going to be sure to have the Ibus unit here as well when I do my install.

Alright, so this is where I am right now:

Got the stock deck and CD player out, along with the wooden flip down door. I am left with these connections:



And with the provided harness I was able to connect into the big adapter, and plug in the smaller black connecter on the back of the Seicane unit, and the radio connection.

Tested power and it powered up, ran through the system, but no sound.



Do I still use the big extension cable? And that plugs into the back area of the X?

Also, I do have a standalone subwoofer and amp that I would like to add into this install as well, would it be any different than the above?

Thanks!

------------------------------- from your site below:

I used the blue connector that was going to the old nav screen in the dash to connect the IBUS adapter to the X5ís IBUS.

I used wire #6 (white) for the ibus signal and #2 (brown) for ground. I used a fuse tap on fuse #7 in the glove box which shows to be telephone for the positive wire of the ibus interface. This is key switched so it turns the adapter off when the keys off.
Now I don't have NAV, so I don't have a blue connector back there for the IBUS. Where do I connect the IBUS wires then?

Without nav just plug the radio in and it should work. Nothing else is needed on your setup.

I will find the ibus connector wire for you and post that in a sec.

Pin 9 should be your ibus connector. Its in the large block section on the top left of the connector in this picture.

There is a second connector on the long harness. Leaving the primary connector connected to the to the radio harness, I plugged the second connector into the radio in the rear and I had sound. However, after about a minute or so the sound shuts off. The amp is still triggered. If I turn the key off and back on I get sound for another minute. When I have sound all speakers and the subwoofer are operating.

There is also a wire coming out of Seicane cable that is labled ILL. Could it be that wire needs to be connected somewhere to keep the speakers powered?

Ok with sound for a short period of time that would be the common dsp aftermarket radio problem people ran into in the past.

I bet the app on the ibus thing might solve that. But we can work out a wiring fix too if needed. The problem with the solution in the video is the guy is fixing the problem with a non factory nav upgraded to a aftermarket radio.

You had nav so the wiring is different. You bought the ibus adapter too right? If so lets load that up on the radio and get it working and see if that makes the sound stay on. If it does then were good. If it doesn't then we hunt for a wiring solution.

Or if you want we can go for a wiring solution first.

Your call.
