Default Another Stereo Install

I got a double din to install so i bought the connector with cable that fits the sprinter dash plug. I can't find an accessory wire to light it up with the key. the factory connector has no pins where the connector suggests it should be. does it fire up with can bus or do i have to dig for a different wire? (benz stereo with screen but no nav) thanks

Yes, it is all CANbus controlled. If you need an electrical control, you can find it on the EK1 connector under the driver's seat.

That might be the camera wire.

my stereo had no reverse camera, but there were 2 coax type cables on the radio and also 1 tucked in the back not connected. would they have connected the cam cable with no camera?

It's called a fakra conector and yes your van could have been pre wired for the camera.

You didn't say what your double din was. I am installing a Pioneer 4200NEX. Crutchfield sent me an adapter to fit the M-B antenna to the receiver.
