    Default When does the front cig lighter power up?

    Is it when the ignition is on stage 1 or 2?

    Cheers bud, I have a funny problem with my stereo (I know you didn't have any power at yours)

    Mine has power but the stereo only plays for so long before it starts going on and off, its fine when the engines running (unless you are steering when the car has just started in which case it goes off and back on)

    Not sure how much sense that makes

    Sounds very strange indeed. Is it being powered from the standard plugs?

    My standard stereo lights flickered alot but didnt go off. Maybe it was just a faulty unit.

    Yep I have the ignition live in the iso plug

    I've tried the unit in the missus' punto and it works fine in it. I actually thought it was a faulty connection but I have a spare loom and it does it with that too.

    The only thing I think it may be is that the power cable supplying it isn't big enough

    I'd suggest monitoring the voltage in the circuit somehow. Maybe wire in a cheap voltage display and see if it had dipped when the stereo has gone off.
