I went to the site I think you have to order the appropriate interface cables with the radio then it should be plug and play bas3d off my reading.

There are 2 different cables. I got the wrong one initially. I can't remember how you tell but the option codes aren't definitive. PM me if you have questions and I'll check my emails to Bergville.

Thanks to the help of this thread, I installed the Continental CDD7416UB-OR unit in my 2001 Boxster. I used the M490 harness described above. It works great so far and I really like its appearance in the cabin.

The only problem, though, is that when I lock the car using the remote, the horn honks once, indicating that something isn't right (like the glove box is ajar, trunk not latched, etc.). I did notice that the instruction guide talked about a blue/brown wire that had to be isolated. I see a wire like this in the bundle, but assumed that it would have been handled by the harness. Has any one else experienced this issue?

I'm curious to know if the FM reception improved with this unit? My CD220 reception is crappy. I already tried to clean the ground connection of the fm antenna amplifier in the A pillar. It improved a lot but not as in my honda civic

The wire is connected to the factory radio chassis left side look into the hole you should see it pull it from the chassis and wrap in electrical tape.

I had the same problem, and nothing I tried fixed it. Well, replacing the stock radio fixed it; something in the radio had failed and it couldn't receive radio signals.

Thank you, Cunningr! Using a more powerful flashlight, I was able to find it. Here are two pictures. First, what it looks like plugged in:



And second, what it looks like when it's disconnected:



The security system is happy now.

Glad I could help! Make sure you wrapped it if it grounds out by accident It will cause some issues.
