  1. Thanks for all the replies guys. Update: Radio installed and working now. Head unit and amplified dab aerial were from an installation in my previous car. Parts: head unit: Kenwood KDCBT73DAB aerial: Kinetic DRA-6004 wiring harness adaptor: Connects2 CTSFO009.2 fascia adaptor plate: Connects2 CT24FD30 Roof lining was very easy to lower at front edge by removing part of door/front pillar seals and front pillar plastic trim, to allow routing of dab/fm/power cables and microphone for hands-free calling over lining, down pillars and through dash board to rear of head unit. had to enlarge hole in roof, to accept dab aerial, to 14mm. its also worth pointing out, that the Kenwood head unit had only 10mm clearance behind when fitted, so its important to make sure any large connector blocks etc are pushed to one side as the head unit is slid into its cage (to avoid obstruction or damage to any wiring). This was a little tricky to do, took a couple of attempts. That's it..... I don't think there were any other issues/hints/tips worth mentioning
  2. Hi Matt, thanks for your reply. I've found that Connects2 do a full harness adaptor kit for this, so fingers crossed it will be sorted next weekend :)
  3. Hi all, I need some help wiring my Kenwood KDC BT73DAB. I have managed to get it working, but its permantly live, so I have to remember to switch off head unit, each time I leave the car. (see pics).... Connector 2 has 4 wires: Black: earth Red/Green: constant 12v+ White: ???? Blue: ??? What are the Blue and White for? what are the Grey, Black and Green wires for on Connector 1 for? Connector 1 is currently NOT connected. thanks in advance, Kev.C.
  4. Thanks for your reply Clive. I'm embarrassed that I didn't think of that lol!
  5. Hi all, I need some advice, ready for when I fit my Kenwood DAB radio/aerial to my 2010 KA. I should be ok swapping the head units, but I have a couple of questions.... 1: Is replacing the standard aerial with a DAB one going to be straight forward, or has anyone encountered any problems doing this? 2: the aerial needs a 12v ign power feed, can I just pick up the 12v supply to the cig lighter socket, or is there an easier simpler option? thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer :) cheers, Kev.C.
  6. Hi all, having just traded in my old citroen and driving away in a nice shiny 2010 Ka I knew from past experience that joining an owners forum is a must. Looking forward to a few years low cost motoring, to free up some ££s for my passion...... collecting original 1950s/60s Rhythm n Blues, Soul, Rockabilly 45s. Cheers, Kev.C.
