New head unit but no info center bugger

Here you can post things about ICE (In Car Entertainment). Like how to install GPS navigation, a DVD-player and other yuppie-stuff. This category might be moved to "those other things" in the end...

Do a search on info centre theres tons of stuff on here about them.

quote....

The radio + info centre + cigar lighter + glove box light + boot light + keyhole lights ... etc are all on the same circuit! Did you have the problem with all of them ... and if so ... have your managed to fix them all?
another quote...

I just had this with mine, fixed it by accident the other day

Theres a wire behind the radio (think it's grey with a red stripe, not sure), it switches on and off with the ignition, I needed a switched live wire for my radio so I used this one and my ic started working again

Looks like theres a problem with that wire on mine though, the ic turned off earlier on today and my radio went off with it, only for a couple of minutes though, was fine for the rest of the time

Failing that check the wiring on the back of the alternator, it's earthed there


took all of 60 seconds on search :lol:
