    confused Sony stereo / car problems Please help

    Hi All

    I had to disconnect the battery last week, when re connecting it my car stereo refused to work (Sony Bluetoooth, CD etc) i checked all the possible faults, had the stereo back out, disconnected the battery again checked fuses (all of them i think) still nothing.

    I assumed the Stereo had given up and ordered a new stereo, another Sony.
    Connected it today and still no power, i have once again checked the wiring and fuses and cannot seem to find any fault.

    I really hope there is someone on here that knows what i have done wrong coz im all out of idea's apart from calling someone in £££

    The fault could be with the wiring of the radio. The head units have a fuse build into them (think its a 10amp one but could be wrong) where the radio wiring loom connects to the head unit. Check these first.

    Depending on your car age etc I am assuming you have used a stero patch lead for the radio controls connecting to either a ISO block (half can bus cars 02 to 04 plate) or the quadlock type (used in full can bus cars from 54 plate onwards). Double check the connecting on these to ensure they are correct and have not come loose (the power leads can have a different connection set up depending on what leads you have used).

    As for the fuses was it the ones in the boot or the ones in the passenger side of the dash you checked and has anything else gone out... On the full can bus I think the radio shares the fuse with the interor lights (not 100% sure on this however). If other things are out then it points to a fuse issue and not the head unit on the full can bus set up. If it's half can bus then the radio is on it's own power supply and shoul dhave it's own fuse (i think from memory).

    None of the fuses have gone out, the fuse on the back of the stereo's are fine and the fuse in the passenger side panel near the airbag which is shared with interior lights is also fine, the wiring connector for the stereo is the full type connector and fitted perfectly from the old stereo to the new......... As this stereo is not working either im beginning to think its not a stereo problem, more a fuse / wiring fault??? Just havn't got the slightest idea of where to look next.

    I did check the wiring loom past the original connector for the factory fitted / vauxhall stereo but there didn't appear to be an inline fuse / box attached.

    Im a prity sure there is no inline fuse on the wiring.

    Is your car half can bus or full can bus?

    When you start the car does the screen (display) work. If it's not working it could be the fuse for this causing the issue as the radio will not work without the display working.

    Do you still haver the OEM head unit? I would test fit it to see if it works. If it does then that rules out the fuse / OEM wiring and would point to the wiring adapter or the head unit.
