The easiest way to do this is to use a Lexia to tell the BSI that no radio is installed, then swap the red and yellow wires round and it will then plug and play..
Plugging a non-standard headunit in without doing this can send the thing insane. Mine did all sorts off odd things. Interior lights coming on when the door was closed, passenger window opening, dash info display only half - working.

Edit Reason: info
"sounds a bit of a mix-up " if the van fails to start, you may have wrongly connected to the switched Citroen eco live which saves battery life , i believe the ecu shuts this down after 1min of closing the doors , maybe caused the system to spit its dummy , I suggest you disconnect and re-connect the battery in the correct manner to prevent further mishaps , maybe check the radio plug is the standard iso and buy your specific models patch lead , I found my solution here somewhere for fitting my kenwood head unit in my 04 1.9d van , using the radios own iso connector i moved the yellow from no4 position to no.6 to pick up another ignition switched live on the berlingo plug, then switched red & yellow over to retain memory functions . worked a treat.
I was curious today so I put an aftermarket radio in to my berlingo. Started straight up, didn't need to be reconfigured in the BSI. The ignition live wire did need to be altered in the adaptor for the new plug in order to make it switch on with the key and remember the settings.
You have a B9 Berlingo, not the B59 in te first post, and a different problem...
Maybe start a new topic in the right area?
