View Full Version : Head Unit problem, please help?

Hey all,

I'm having some troubles with my set up. I will give you the low down;

I used to have two 15" JBL subs... but as you can imagine in a small '98 323 Protege (Familiar) they can get a bit annoying so I swapped to a type R sub. I also swapped the amp over to a M850 Alpine amp and ran some new RCA's. I have a small Coustic 100W rms running the splits but thats not really important. Since i swapped the amp and sub over, my head deck (Sony XAV-C1 Audio/Video head unit) wont start - as though it doesn't have any power at all. I checked the power lead and fuses and it is all fine, the only weird thing I find is that the 'Room' fuse blows everytime i take out the headdeck and the battery dies.

What the heck is this? Any help would be awesome :D

sounds like a short somewhere....check to make sure that the wiring doesn't have a ny knicks in it or bare wire showing.
