Hi people I have recently ( Today) attempted to put an old unit into my van, Vauxhall Combi Anyway the problem following install is that I am not able to hear any radio channels. Question, do I require an extension as my Daughter informs me? an aerial extension lead? I gave her this unit some years ago she has upgraded, so I have it back minus destruction notes.

This is a safty feature of most factory car radios, if the power is turned off it thinks its being stolen so you need to put in a code which is normally unique to that radio. Most of the time the maker of the car will put the pin number in the car manual, but if your like me i dont have it anymore and found it was cheaper (and easier) to fit a new stereo.
The easiest way is to purchase an installation kit that is matched to your vehicle, and comes with a pigtail plug that inserts directly in to your existing radio connector, and the pigtail wires match up color for color to your new unit
Exactly a minute after you turned it on it went out, did it go out with like a bang or spark, seriously, this would indicate that the wiring wasn't correct somehow, i know u checked the fuse for the correct ampperage required and the most important question do you have an amp because most aftermarket head units aren't wired for 6 speakers,unlike oem Bose unit which has a built in amp and 6 wires output, you should have rca jacks which requires a amp for the additional output speakers. I could be wrong regrding how many output available on your new head unit.
You need an active subwoofer input in your amplifier.Which amplifier you are using? Only latest pioneer amplifiers has active sub input and sub output which can be connected to subwoofer.If you dont have active input then you will have to connect it the way you did in old player.
I am having the same problem but only with a KDC-MP335 unit. I installed it in a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee to the stock system, pretty easy install just matching colors for wires and everything works (Radio). but not one CD plays. it says reading and it acts as if it is playing the tracks but no sound... what is going on? did I mess up wiring it or something?
