Re: EONON D5124FU in my 04 X5 4.4?!?!?!

As soon as I pulled out the MID And CD player I knew something didn't look right.

Although the outer dimensions are right and the body slides into the factory cd slot the eonon is flush at the top but the factory cd is not so the only way to fit it properly is to cut out the upper cross member of the plastic frame in the dash. S mod I'm reluctant to do until I'm certain the unit will otherwise work.

One of the harnesses provided matches the 40 pin factory harness that his into the cd but there is absolutely no provision for the MID connector.

Once connected by itself the unit does not turn on at all unless the MID is plugged back in in which case it turns on but no sound at all

(It's in this testing phase that I reconnected the MID with the key in the 1 position apparently killing it)

So at this point I need to figure out how and where to connect the unit and whether I need to keep the MID plugged in for it to work in which case I guess it needs to go on the glove box?

So far seller has been off no help at all other than suggesting I need an extended harness to make the connection in the back where so far I haven't found any 40 pin connections
