Re: Anyone know where I can access the VSS in a 2006 S60 2.5T? (ufd108)

Don, the only way to get it is if you have a CAN BUS reader. If you are planing on using the Dietz adapter with your radio, it does have the speed output line. Basically the unit reads the volvo CAN BUS and converts the speed signal to a standard format that can be read by the nav unit. I used the speed output from a Deitz 61301 CAN BUS reader with my Alpine nav and it worked fine.

They have a wireharness that supports the reomte options on kenwood head units (enables steering wheel control in Volvo S60/S80/V70).

61301 info is here http://www.dietz2.biz/artikeld...00000

61007 and 61009 info is here http://www.dietz2.biz/artikeld...00000

Perzan Auto Radio in Upper Darby, PA apparently is the only US retailer:
(610) 734-1234
6409 Market St
Upper Darby, PA 19082

There must be a place in the UK or somewhere that still has a leftover harness in stock.

But if not... there are female couplers available on ebay that will fit the Volvo stock couplers in the car (the green and grey rectangular male connectors).

here is the metra one

Don, the CAN signal wires are in the green harness. I'll see if I can find the install manual I had from the Deitz, it had all the pin outs on it.

These are the 5 wires on the Deitz harmess - process of elimination could find it pretty quick if I can't find that manual. (looks like I had a loose white wire there, yipes! )



according to Jim Lill in this thread A7 is CAN high and A8 is CAN low. (white and green in my pic ... and reversed location on the male connector obviously)

let me know how you like it. I'm considering the 6140 for my wife's car.

Thanks Don, that helps a lot actually. I am used to Garmin (have a GVN-53 headless unit in my car) so that part is great, nothing like consistency between the two cars.

Glad to here that the ipod control is good also. Some of the 1st gen ipod stuff was very poor indeed.
