    Default Funny Radio

    Hi , i know i put a thread up earlier about this matter but i have just picked the car up from the garage. they have put it on tech 2 and found nothing wrong but of course couldnt check the volume control as not working. not got a security code for it. but have the pass code for the radio. i have been told that it looks as if it was an ex white arrow distribution car in Norton Worcester but cant find a phone number for them. I also got told that if it had a phone connected the might have just took the phone out and when the battery got disconnected it could have enabled the mute on the radio. is this correct? car does not need the radio code and everything works but no sound. Any advice please as been told new unit will cost £1200 + vat christ its only coming up to 4 year old.

    Right the wire is pluged into the rear of the stereo and is going to ground , causing the mute to be held on , The wiring might be behind the glovebox as on some cars they fitted a vda plug for connection of the car kit , look there 1st as its ony 5 screws , if not you need to pull the radio ou and the cage which is held in with 1 torx screw at the back ,same size as glove box screws ,

    Anyways , pull the radio out and there is a diagram on the top telling you what pin is for what , you should be able to see the yellow mute wire frm the phone kit poked into one of the holes , just pull it out and it will return to normal.
