Just brought a highline from ebay for my 09 brabus. the problem is when i turn off the engine the stereo wont shut down it self and when ignition it also not turn on.even when driving it shows'please switch on ignition,or stereo will shut down in X minutes'

is there any addtional cable i need to connect or made a wrong connection?

i want to upgrade the speakers long time ago.i dont know anything about the electric circuiti.so i am reviewing all the post about audio.thank you all.

It sounds like you missed the ignition wire. There are at least 2 (may be) wiring pin-outs for the harness for the 451 smart (several more if you go earlier than that).

If you look at the harness car side, you may see the ignition line is not where the radio harness is looking for it. If you have the harness wired for a 2008-2010, the pin the old ignition line goes to is empty on the car side for a 2011+.

PS: You should be able to post a picture after 3 posts. :)
