Help Aftermarket HU, Do I need Canbus adapter
First time forum visitor, just picked up my 07 Commander yesterday. I have the base sound system and went over to crutchfield.com to order a new HU. Do I really need the canbus adapter? I have searched the posts on here and some have said that they have spliced into the cig lighter to gain access to a switchable 12v instead of the canbus adapter. Is this true? If so, what color wire is going to the cig lighter and is there easy access to it. Will I get any service lights by not using the canbus or lose any functions? Last thing, my dash is Khaki does anyone know an alternative to the black dash kit that is on crutchfield for aftermarket radios?
