    Help diagram for optima with infinity sound system

    Hey guys
    Really need some help over here :/
    I have a factory infinity sound system with navi and amp.
    I bought a tesla style Android screen that it should be plug n play for my model but unfortunately it wasn't..

    1. I got no sound. I only hear a tzzzzz form the uper speaker in the dash no matter volyom, the sound comming directly after i plug in contact

    2. Rear camera connector is smaller then my factory Camera connector.

    3. Steering wheel controls not working

    I did a research and what i found was that the harness i got with the new tesla unit not plugged in the same diagram as mine. I think is plugged ater a standard sound diagram.

    The problem is i couldn't find my diagram on the internet
    Anyone have one for the infinity sound system ?

    I found some diagrams that should be to the navi with amp but when i tryed to follow it with my factory i find that its not same

    See picture down below .

    This one for amp sounds tell that:
    pin 1 is m-can high
    Pin 13 in m-can low

    But in my connector :
    Pin 1 and pin 13 is empty.
    Mine start from pin 2 (brown )

    I have a factory alpine amp with a 3 connector. 2 white and one gray (speakers wires?)

    I will fix the sound by put a new 5 channel amp using the factory speakers wires in the trunk

    But i need the diagram for the connector in the head unit so i got my steering wheel controls working and also try to make the rear camera work

    Pictures of the head unit and some of the connectors

    Here is the link to download the file I did (only for European2012-2014 Optima)

    I hope this helps you out.

    Be careful to isolate all RCA plugs that are not used, orthey might short with the chassis, and you’ll hear a nice buzzz instead of music J
