i would recommend you to first fix the tip of the black round wire, the antenna wire, the center wire and the little ones on the outside are both inportant. go to radioshack and you should eaily find this tip, also on radio shak, or best buy, look for an apdator that changes the tip of the car fm antenna plug to the system the cd receiver uses, it is the work thing to cut the wires, your letting humiity, static to enter.,
also the little metal box has to be plugged on the cd changer wire, this is the wire that goes from the metal box, back to the cd changer on the trunk, this is the communication wire..
then you also must plug in the red, blck and yellow.
the red should go on to the red on the battery strait.
black strait to the negative.
and the yellow is the one that swicthes the unit on.off
if you are still using the bmw haed unit, there is a wire on the radio plug that is known as a remote power, this wire carries +12v only when the radio is on to power up the amp and the antenny diversity filter.
so in case you want the cd player system to be turn off and on by the radio hook the yellow wire to this remote wire trough the use of a relay. i once did the same set up on a 525 i, and after a while the amp would not work, that is because the cd pulls some power.. so using s simple relay guarantees that the cd changer will come on and off with the head unit and not interfere with the amp and the antenna diversity,
a link for a detail radio wiring, so you can find the remote out is on the link as follow
in case you dont want to go to that hassle, be simple, put the yellow together with the red, on the positve of the battery. This way the cd player will always be on, you have to turn it off.
if need something else, let me know.
