Re: Frozen au headunit
Yer I took it to an electrical specialist and he took one look at it and said that they are basically un-workable by anyone outside the manufacture because schematics apparently dont exist for them and they are constructed without pcb markings and things, or something...
He basically said get it replaced.
Warranty ended about 1 year ago, its a '99. My local ford dealer said for $150 I can give him my damaged one and it will be replaced by the manufacturer, so I suppose its a $150 repair job.
Seriously considering an aftemarket system at the moment thou.
Something of interest concerning the circuits, when I removed the 5A and 15A radio fuses I also lost (apart from the hu) the elec. windows, the clock, and the variable timing for the window wipers, so a few things must be wired downstream of those fuses on the same circuit, including the cigarett lighter, or something else is wrong....... (replacing the fuses returned the car to normal thou - minus the hu working).
