Aftermarket head units normally need a constant 12V feed and a switched feed that is live with the ignition. I am guessing that you have the switched feed sorted as your head unit goes on and off with the ignition, so all you need to do now is find the constant feed.

Strange thing is that if you have a factory fit head unit that doesn't have both feeds, it is normally the switched feed that is missing.

Does your new head unit have ISO connectors? What was the model of the head unit that you took out of the Scenic? With this info, it should be possible to find the info you need on t'interweb.

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
