Berlingo Van in Africa
#1
Rainbow 
Hi All, very handy info on the various threads. I live near Durban, KZN, South Africa.:wave: Anyhow, have had my Van (L1 1.6i petrol) for 18 months now, enjoying it, just wish i could get a few more HP (mine gives 90HP / 66kw):S
I have managed to 'hack' the cd/radio unit (RD4) to play my ipod through the aux1 channel as most of our local radio stations don't cover the area's i travel to. Looking forward to hearing more about mods & idea's for the Van Smile (including those stuuuuupid 'cup / bottle' holders Rolleyes)

Hi Graeme how have you managed to do that I'm having grief doing the same trying to get my cable which plugs in the back of the rd4 radio to recognise my input 1... I have the diagbox software and have configured the input.. My cable looks like this. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400588924700

Hi Chris, apologies for loooong delay - This is how i proceeded: I bought a spare harness from a scrap dealer, and salvaged the plug. I then spliced a standard audio cable to it, and had a "friendly" Auto electrician plug his "Proxia" software to the Van. He then enabled "Aux 1" on the car / radio. I plug in my old iPhone & presto, and have awesome audio. Some of the Radios installed (mine is a Continental - Czech Repl) do not have the circuit for the Aux 1, so you may have to find one & have it VIN coded by a friendly Sparky (of if you have the software....) The wiring was simple to work out, i am sure you have all the diagrams already) If not. PM me and i'll send you all the links & info that i have. 
An even easier & more high-tech solution would be something like this that is my current project on my Van: http://www.dx.com/p/stereo-audio-bluetoo...egD0PmqpBc
depending on how adventurous you are Smile.
