    Default Help required after Parrot install.

    Hey everyone,

    First off just want say i did search for this problem but only found one thread with some relevance.

    I have recently fitted a Parrot bluetooth kit to my 02 Vectra C.

    The Parrot works fine, but the headunit will not allow me to enter the code to get it working again, the date is just flashing on the display screen, and the headunit seems to be going on and off repeatedly (the power/volume button is flashing)

    Does anyone have any ideas what so ever?

    I read it may be that the hu is stuggling for power because of the parrot?

    Many thanks in advance everyone!

    Andy

    Hi mate

    You're right the HU is struggling for power. I've just fitted a Parrot to my 52 plate Vec C and had EXACTLY the same problem.

    You need to power the Parrot independantly from the HU using a switched live, you can pick one up from the back of the ciggy lighter.

    Thanks Neal, but would this then mean that if i put anything in the lighter.. i.e. satnav.. that would also have insufficient power due to the parrot?

    It will be fine. Whatever you plug into the ciggy lighter will still work perfectly. Taking power from the back of the ciggy lighter is the globally accepted method of powering the parrot kits.
