I have connected the head unit as I believe to be correct from following the very vague intructions on Blaupunkt.com but now no sound. The power comes on as it should but no speaker sound. It is installed in a 1998 Ford Explorer. Any ideas? I have re-installed the OEM unit and it works fine. ???
MGBGT- This is a fairly common problem,you ford has a built in amplifier,there is a wire that needs to be hooked up.If you used an after market adaptor,this wire should be marked and needs to be hooked to the remote turn on lead of the deck.Let me know if you need help. cooltek Mar,4/08

what year is your car?newer cars 1999 and up the radio wiring harness goes thru the ecm (electronic control module).if that head unit is not supported it wont work correctly.in a bad case senario the head unit could damage the ecm.
I don't think it has a low wattage setting. Have you tried hooking up another deck to see if the problem carries over to the second head unit. Most usually when a head unit shuts off like that, you first worry is true. Are you using the factory wiring in the vehicle?? May I also suggest pulling the head unit out and hooking up all four channels using after market wiring. By using this troubleshooting method is would give you a definate answer on your wiring problem. If The problem persist, then it could be the head unit itself is going bad. Also, one last thing, even if you think the speakers are fine, if one of the speakers is malfunctioning, then it would also cause the player to kick into safe mode.
I believe this radio locks itself when the power is removed for a certian amount of time. If you know what vehicle it was from and the serial numbers are intact contact Ebay item#150285665841
