Can anyone Please direct me as to what adaptor I would require to add a JVC Radio CD to my already given up 2003 Citroen C3 1.1 SX 5 Door radio which is on the blink. Something that would connect all EG steering column button etc etc any direction would be gratefully received Thank you in Anticipation.

Hello Lky50

Something like this adaptor ebay will do the job, and in the best BBC tradition, other adaptors are available.

One little caveat, I fitted a similar adaptor and it stopped the BSI going into full sleep mode with the engine off, this gave a flat battery after a few days parked up. For some reason it only happened when a Sony adaptor lead was plugged in. I would say it's very unlikely this will happen to you but for peace of mind it's something I would check for, just in case.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence and pretend you never tried :lol:
