Hi, in order to connect the Video Module to the Navigation Computer, a Video Module Harness must be created. The Video Module Harness can be created using a Navigation Connecting Lead (P/N 61 12 8 377 436). The Navigation Connecting Lead consists of a purple and a blue 18-pin connector on one end and a white 18-pin connector on the other end along with a white and a black large 6-pin connector and a small black 6-pin connector. Unwrap the tape holding the Navigation Connecting Lead together so that you have 2 cables. The cable with the blue 18-pin connector on one end and the white 18-pin connector on the other is your Video Module Harness. There are three wires (brown/black, red/green, and a striped white) going into a large white 6-pin connector on the Video Module Harness. Cut these wires from the 6-pin connector and splice them to the same color-coded wires on the car's blue 18-pin Navigation Computer connector. Once the Video Module is installed, the car's blue 18-pin Navigation Computer connector will instead plug into the Video Module blue socket, the Video Module Harness white connector will plug into the Video Module white socket, and the Video Module Harness blue connector will plug into the Navigation Computer blue socket. The Navigation Computer purple connector remains attached to the Navigation Computer purple socket.

In order to enable video and audio inputs to the Video Module, connect two RCA cables or RCA sockets as follows to the Video Module Harness white connector:

  • #4 composite video in signal
  • #5 composite video in ground
  • #6 audio in signal
  • #15 audio in ground

I have recently added a Bluetooth ULF module to my car, every thing works except sound. I purchased the system from, they supplied the old to new harness to connect from the original harness...

Hello Richard, when the ulf module was installed, was the jumper plug installed in the blue 26 pin connector in the left rear corner near the GPS unit. I think that if this plug is missing, you will not get any sound for the interface. This plug is required for vehicles with nav. I think it is called the Voice Input jumper plug.

It sounds like maybe the ASC/DSC control unit may be bad. I would first check the RR wheel speed sensor for damage or water ingress. Unless you know someone that has a scanner, I would take it to your local dealer and let them scan your system.
