A 'Melbus Prepped' vehicle is simply one that has a Melbus cable already installed.
Here's how to tell if you're vehicle is prepped or not:
Open the trunk or hatch of the vehicle
Turn lock located at top of left rear panel beside the seat releae handle. Some vehicles do not have the seat release handle.
If there's a rolled up, foam taped cable with an 8 PIN connector then your vehicle is Melbus Prepped!
Your vehicle model/year should be in your user's manual.
Why is my Car Model/Year not listed?
All XC90, V50, S40 or S80 (2nd gen) models or models newer than 2008 are MOST based (fiber optic) and do not support Melbus devices. We do have plans in the works for creating a solution for these models, however we cannot reliably say when this will actaully happen. Watch our site for news updates.
