Hi David,The original stereo would be on what would be classed as a low speed CAN BUS or Lin Bus.Now every other module on that bus is not communicating with the head unit of each other.Would be best to refit the factory head unit, and take the vehicle to a professional who has done an installation like this.Does the vehicle's engine even start?Hope this helps.Gary
