Former VW owner, new 07 Access cab owner with stereo question

Okay. One of the biggest mistake of my life was having a local audio store installed a Clarion radio into my 00 VW Golf. The car's computer diagnostics ran through the stereo and instead of using a wiring harness adapter, they just cut the wires and started crimping. ODB connector gone. Long story short, I didn't discover that for a year or so and it messed with the car's electrical enough to make the car exceedingly flaky.

So I got me a Taco.

Does the 07 standard stereo have any of that kind of interactivity with the ODB II port and computer control? Or is it just a separate electrical system?

From what I understand it's separate from the OBDII system altogether.

It is completely separate, BUT that does not mean that you should cut and crimp. It is always better to buy a adapter to go to the original harness. This affords you the ability to change, change, change again, and then change back without damaging your vehicle.
