Wharfdale Car Radio WH-180

Ive recently fitted the above into a Vauxhall Corsa, it works ok until you remove the ignition key then all the stations disappear you then have to retune it. There are 3 plugs coming from the car 1 has 10 input pins the other 2 only have 8 input pins its these 2 plugs Ive used, I havent changed any wires it was just plug and play! I think you need a 12v for the memory but where do you get that from?

If you have access to the 8 pin plug and have a voltage tester check each pin with the ignition on. Once you have found the pins that have voltage see which one goes off w/ign. and which one does not. The one that goes off cut it about 2-3 inches from the plug and cap the end of the wire that was going to the plug. With the wire from the plug remove 1/2 inch or so of the insullation and find the pin that did not go off w/ign and skin that wire back about 1/2 inch and apply the other wire and tape up. this should do it.

Car radio not picking up stations

Check the radio earth, the aerial cable and the point at which the cable reaches the aerial.

If there is no fault, take the radio back to where you bought it.

Why does my radio on a Corsa Design 2007 only pick up the bbc radio channels? I have just bought the car.I have no arial on the top of the car.


You should have an Aerial mast on the roof of the car, it should be situated at the rear of the roof in the centre. All Corsa`s come fitted with an Aerial as standard so it should be there. If it is missing or broken then you will only be able to pick up the BBC stations as they have the strongest signal strength.

The Aerial consists of a base section attached directly to the roof and a mast which is removable from the base by simply unscrewing it, it`s not uncommon for the mast section to get pinched as it`s easily removable but they can be bought separately from any any vauxhall dealer and are easily replaced.

Hope this helps and thanks for using fixya

Automatically goes to the demo mode on start-up

to turn off demo mode put radio into stand by were it is running demo mode and hold number 6 till it switches off. As for the key problem its the key that is making the key live connection on your model of car so this can not be changed. sorry
