Hey guys and girls
I've had a search but couldnt find anything that matched the issue I'm having, and forgive me, but Im a bit of a noob with wiring!
I replaced the head unit in my MINI with a SONY CDX-GT620U, used standard ISO converters to fit it, great!
However, when the radio is in standby (ignition on) all is normal, as soon as I press power on the head unit, the dashboard lights come on, the orange ones that illuminate the speedometer and the rev counter
I dont remember this happening with my old head unit
Other than the dash lights coming on, everything else is fine, it seems to have a constant 12V as it remembers the presets and the time when the ignition is turned off.
While I'm here, the cage doesn't seem particularly secure, I cant bend the tabs in it properly because of the 'ledge' where the mini head unit rested
Any ideas much appreciated, thanks!
