    confused No heater on 1-3 after parrot install. Coincidence?

    Hey guys,

    Had a car kit installed on Saturday and now I've just realised I'm cold and my windows are steaming up.

    Could anything have been knocked out by having this done or has my heater resistor just gone at the same time? I know it's been working recently, just seems too much of a coincidence.

    Also the Parrott MKi9200 seems to have to adjustments for brightness, one for day and one for night but the unit doesn't change when I turn the lights on, has a wire been missed do we think?

    Thanks in advance

    Almost certain to be the resistor pack. If you listen closely behind the glovebox, can you hear a click when you turn the blower switch from 0 to 1? If yes, it's the resistor. If not, it'll be the relay

    I doubt any Parrot handsfree is 'wired' for brightness adjustment. Most gadgets will have a light sensitive diode on the forward face that detects and automatically adjusts the brightness with a slight delay.

    The connector behind the heating dials might not be on right. Prise the heater dials section out and have a look behind (thats if the fitter put the main Parrot box behind the dials which they normally do as there is loads of space).

    So after tony confirmed what I already suspected I bit the bullet, and being impatient just went to the stealer for a resistor (£34.50 aarrghh) and fitted it straight away with the aid of a torch and an in car handstand to find and remove the existing one. All worked 1,2,3,4 and yes, I even checked before re-installing the glovebox. Oh and to note I checked the fan through the cabin filter orifice and the motor was turning smoothly although more resistive then I imagined with no evidence of water ingress or stray leaves/branches or and foreign object.

    I did notice however, that my halfords professionally fitted car kit was not so much installed as thrown in. The three wire iPod/USB/3.5mm Jack was gracefully introduced into the glovebox area through the slot reserved for the opening/closing lever aperture and has slight signs of trapping already. I reinstalled the glovebox anyway while pondering the situation after walking the dog I thought hang on! There should be a grommet somewhere. So I went through the box, no grommet, checked the parts list, grommet shown on cable. So out with the glovebox, out with the multiplug, 20mm drill out, bish bash, job done right bar 10 minutes finding stray screw in the dark.

    Oh and I did refit the screen mount yesterday too as I didn't think the 8mm foam sticky pad was really necessary as the mount was flexible to mount to the contour of the dash trim anyway.

    Sounds like the Halford's fitter was a bit of a clumsy git. Maybe knocked the resistor during installation?

    Pleased you got it sorted though

    Turns out scuttle was full of water so pulled the bung out and removed the heater blower motor and tried to free the rusty spindle areas firstly with WD40 and then some chain/bearing lube. Spins more freely now.

    I thought about that but just couldn't be bothered this week, started in a new position at work so I was stressed enough without been cold on the way home. Will get a thermal fuse next time I'm near maplins and keep old one as a spare.
