Well I hardwired my new cd player JVC KD-AR800 to my bmw 91' 318i. Everything is hooked up correctly, the player work and inserts and ejects cds and all the funcrions work. Now heres is the problem when I go to play it, it only plays for a few seconds then it cuts out and doesnt work or make any sounds or it will give me static and somtimes it will randomly cut back in and play for a second. This bewildered myself and my friend who has done many installs.

Any comments or suguestions??

make sure that there is no wires touching tongether..(neg, pos) it could be grounding itself out somehow. Just double check your work and if you cant figure it out take it to a shop they will only chage like $15 to diasnos (sp) the problem.
