Hello,
I have a cruze from 2009-2010 in Denmark, I bought a new original radio receiver and head unit with screen from ebay I think its for Cruze 2012-2013
My original cable from the car is just a 44 pins plug and radio antenne, and the new radio receiver have much more, I know some of them is to rare cam ..., but when I connect the 44 pen plug to the receiver, it doesn't start, so I think there is a different with cables,

Can any body help me to understand the wiring diagram or where can I find it

I read this thread
and

but I think its just for US model

Sorry if my English is bad :D
Best regards

I have no idea if the radios outside N America are set up the same way, but part of it may be that it's keyed to the VIN of the original vehicle. I don't know if that would keep the radio from powering on or if it would just show something on the display.
Did you happen to get the matching control panel? If it is a radio with the navigation system, I think it would need that.

Hello mate. This may be no help at all but for what it's worth..
My car came with a (rubbish) aftermarket system and the original was supplied in a box. This is the first time I've even looked at it.

Would this connector be the correct one?

The hardest part of installing these is getting a complete harness. There are so many different versions it will make your head spin. If you are bound and determined to do this, you need to do a deep dive into the system and decipher what each pin is for and where it would connect into the system. This may entail learning about the originally installed system as well.
