I tried that already but didn`t work.

But i did not cut out the original harness before the bridge from the yellow cable.
I thought that if the system cuts power coming from CCC if i give power from the CID also it will keep working.
Unfortunately not.
Perhaps i must connect the CAN lines from CID to the unit because i think that MCU gives the signal to the system to power on.
Am i wrong with that?
I'm not convinced that terminal 30g is a good solution. Yes, it would be nice to have the unit powered up as soon as car is unlocked, but it would stay awake and lit up for 30min after car is locked which doesn't sound reasonable. Also every time you accidentally press a button on your key fob the whole thing comes to life for another 30min.

Unless I'm mistaken about this 30min, but I'm pretty sure that's what TIS says.

Also you've used yellow cable to bridge power to the unit. I wouldn't go by colours, these can vary car to car. You need to find in TIS which pin on the CID connector provides 12V.
