    OK. So I have two amps (mono). One was running a bin in the back of the van. It 'stopped working'. I bought another, it was fine until it 'stopped working'. Obviously I thought I'd blown them both, fueses etc were fine. Get the amps back from the car electric repair man and whatt do you...

    I have just installed a JVC KW-DB60AT double dinn stereo in my 09 Caravelle Exec. It sounds great, but for some reason it doesn't act like the old VW stereo. For it to work the ignition has to be fully on, as soon as you turn the key to cut the engine the stereo turns off, which is not how the...

    Morning all, I'm a bit of a plum when it comes to stereo installs. I've got a mono amp in the van powering a small sub. This, and the rest of the stereo, are running off the leisure battery so I can use it parked up as well as driving. I've wired a switch into the sub and amp so I can turn them...

    Hey, So i upgraded my stereo to a sony head unit. Worked fine for 20 minutes and then stopped working. It no wont even turn on. I put the old stereo in and it worked fine but nothing from the new one. Came to the conclusion it was the stereo so send it back and got a replacement. New...

    Just taken my dash out to try and find the iso plug for the stereo speakers and have discovered that I don't have the iso connector that plugs into the stereo. So if anybody has a spare / or link to where to get one that'd be ace! Also how would I go about making the stereo stay on even when the...

    Hi, so I've searched loads but not not found any reference to my particular problem. (I've also had to re-register as I forgot my previous details, or they lapsed) I have fitted a single din head unit to my 2010 van (Kenwood BT52SD) However, I want it to be in the lower slot to reduce glare and...

    Hi, I've got a 2008 t5. I don't think it's it got a can bus, as it hasn't got any of the extras only air con. I'm interested in replacing the rcd 200 with an alternative vw head unit. I've been doing my research and I think the rcd 200 is the only vw head unit that will fit my dash. All other...

    Hello. I thought I would post something to see if anyone had some advice... I bought a replacement stereo about a year ago and fitted it. It worked fine but then unfortunately the screen fried itself so late last year (I think it was October ish) I bought another one from Ebay. It was a...

    Thanks to a few threads on here, and a helpful neighbour we managed to fit my new Sony stereo into Captain this weekend. Keep up the technical advice for us amateurs! Only blew the fuse once(no thanks to the connections that came with the stereo), and got rid off all the excess spaghetti from a...

    I've got a pioneer AVH 5200BT head unit (expensive single din one with screen) going into 2 amps and whenever I turn the ignition on I get a high pitched sound coming through the speakers??? I've heard about Pioneer stereos having problems with the internal earth track but was wondering if it...

    Can anyone recommend an auto electrician in the south west (ish) area? I want a leisure battery, reversing camera, rear speakers, upgraded stereo and heated seat electrics installed without having to take the inside of the bus apart more than once! The bus is a T5. Many thanks, Ant.

    Hi. First post and awful name. My mate set me up on this forum ages ago and chose to give me a comedy name. I've been lurking for years and have learned a lot from everyone here, and having just picked up my T5.1 thought it was time to ask a few stereo questions. I have an RCD310 with the...

    I'm considering going down the route of changing the dash in my t5 to the newer t5.1 set up to allow me to upgrade my stereo. I've got no worrys about the mods other than my confusion over Canbus. My van is an 07 plate 1.9 T28. Does this have the correct requirements to fit an RCD310 for...
