Wotcha!
My head unit was working fine then whilst fitting a signal booster I blew a fuse.
Replaced it and abandoned the booster for now but there's no power getting to the head unit.
Actually there is..... my multimeter reads 12v at the ISO lead and the head unit works on a test bench. When connected in the van I can't switch it on
How can this be??????

I'm flummoxed and more than a little :* off

hendrix is it a brand spanking new head unit? cause something in the back of my mind, tells me you need to switch the lives around i.e. the ign live and permanent live around on these, still doesn't really explain why it works on the test bench though:confused:

the same happened to me, theres to lives, one is a permanant from the battery and the other is an ignition live, i decided in the end that i was going to just join both wires together at the back of the head unit so it was permanently live, which means you can have ya tunes playing withouth having your ignition on or key in the ignition, han:ILU:dy when ya chillin down the beach n stuff
