Rated 2.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.Rated 1 out of 5 by Johnny562200 It simply didn't do what I was told it would I was assured that if I bought certain leads that the steering wheel controls would work with a retro fitted radio. Although the the radio worked fine, once I got all the right leads, the steering wheel controls never did work. The guys in the shop could not have been more helpful, they were a credit to Halfords, unfortunately the product was not. I would still recommend the shop to friends because the guys were so helpful. 25 September 2016Rated 3 out of 5 by Ricfer Autoleads pc99-x80 hi i just got that Autoleads PC99-X80 Vauxhall stalk Adaptor CANBUS from halford i try to connect to my pioneer stereo but power is not come up can you tell me where the red wire IGN OUT MAX 1AMP goin to? 27 May 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by Benji84 can be complicated but worth it in the end take a bit of time to get your head round this product. Read the instructions and read them again. Chances are, you will need additional items to have everything work the way you want it. DO NOT FORGET, you will need patch leads. Patch leads go into the back of your new stereo and into the stalk adaptor. There are patch leads are available from Halfords and are specific for the make of radio you have.

Everything was fitted in Belgard (Dublin IRL) by Halfords staff. This controller enables basic steering wheels controls, however it dosent support system settings, like TIME/DATE/LANGUAGE which is very annoying. Halfords technician wasn't fully aware of issues.

Perfect. Please note: I have posted this review elsewhere, but am cross-posting it here in order to spread information about my experience with this cable, which I found hard to obtain when I was shopping for it. Bought this to fit a Pioneer radio into an Astra Mk5 (H), and I'm thrilled at the results. The advantage of the PC99-X80 cable over similar options is that, as far as I am aware, it is the only cable that interprets the CAN bus signals to provide power from the first slight turn of the key, until the moment the key is physically removed. Most cables only provide power while ignition is fully engaged, which drains battery power if you want to listen while the engine is off, or constant power unrelated to ignition - which risks a flat battery if you leave the radio on. Many also require you to attach to wires from the cigarette lighter or heater controls in order to achieve even this, which is added hassle. No such need here, it's plug-and-play, and it operates almost the way the built-in radio did regarding when it turns off and on. You may need a few other things for your installation besides this cable: a Fakra to Din aerial adapter (buy a powered version that includes a signal booster, these are the ones with a blue cable attached), the ISO cables that should come with the new radio, a patch lead for your brand of stereo (only if you have steering wheel controls you wish to use), and a fascia adapter in the right colour for your car if like mine the original radio is larger than the one you're fitting. This cable supports steering wheel controls if your car has them (and you buy a patch lead). I have heard mixed things about the functionality of these controls with this cable, I think mostly regarding whether they let you access the built-in trip computer functions if your car has them. However, my car does not have these controls or functions, and so I used the supplied loop back cable instead. This enables me to still use the little box that does the magic interpretation of CAN bus signals that provide key-triggered power. In summary: it's the most expensive adapter, and it might have small drawbacks regarding steering controls, but fitting it took mere seconds and it provides power linked to key insertion/removal (which is its killer feature for me). Big fan, just wish it was cheaper! 16 July 2015Rated 3 out of 5 by Kidology Read To Save Headache First one didn't work, no 12 Volts on red wire (12 Volt Out), second one worked straight out of the box, hence the low marks. If the first one had worked it would have had higher marks. Used on 08 plate Astra SXI to a Sony CDX-GT450U. All steering wheel functions worked correctly with new head unit. Only problem is you can't change the time on the clock in the dash. Definitely use the Red wire (12 Volt Out) on the unit to trigger a relay for the ignition switched 12 Volt supply to the head unit. Attach this to the coil and then attach the other side of the coil to 0V. Then switch the permanently live through the relay to feed the Switched Supply to the head unit.
