    Default funny radio update

    took car into vauxhall dealer and the tech 2 it. found nothing wrong but couldnt check volume as not working. then i took it to a car radio specialsit to check that it didnt have a phone kit connected. He took it apart and found no extra wires or anything he then decided to check to see if it was the speakers so he plugged in another radio which he had and what a beautiful sound from the speakers. Thus, means the radio's out put is not working. Marcus Fothergill specialist cars of Harrogate who sold me, the car refuses to replace the siemens ncdc 2013, even though he sold the car knowing full well that the radio was knackered. this is a guy who sells expensive cars to the tune of £100,000.00. But couldnt care less about the cheaper ones. Now having to take other action as this car was sold to us under false representation they knew the radio was faulty as the radio wasnt working when the MOT was done in November 2006. Cheeky sod said it just needed a code which they didnt have, to solve the problem.
    Question is does anybody know of anyone who can fix these units, or whats the best unit to put in as i have the built in sat nav but i was wondering if the radio unit taken out would have eany effect on the computer thing giving miles per hour etc etc, would i lose this if taken out . Whats the best unit to put in as the original costs £1200 + vat .

    Sorry to hear your woes. If this guy won't budge, take the vehicle to your Vx dealer and have them install a Vx approved stereo. (Vx now use Blaupunkt units for aftermarket approvals, and NOT VDO/Seimens/Philips)

    After looking around all the normal I.C.E dealers for a replacement unit for my SRi, today my local Vx dealer installed a Blaupunkt Casablanca CD/MP3 head unit, facia kit, ISO adapter and steering remote lead. It all came in at £306 including fitting.

    The sound quality from this unit is superb with the standard SRi speakers, and everything works just as before. I say Vx dealer because my car is still under NetworkQ warranty and I didn't want anyone else touching it. Peace of mind and all that.

    I've learnt the hard way. No one works on my car now except the Vx dealerships.
    No reason why you can't enjoy a new stereo and still persue this guy through the small claims court, funds permitting.

    Off to Trading Standards for you m8. The dealer is in the wrong and if he knew it wasn't working AND you can prove it then he will have to pay up.

    I used to use these people to sub out repairs on OE equipment when the manfacturer service manuals were not made available to us.
