    head unit problems, please help

    I installed a panasonic md/cd deck on my friend's 2000 Civic LX (4dr.) the other day and now, when the car comes to a complete stop, it stalls occasionally. I spliced the stock wires and ran it straight to the headunit without a wiring harness and was sure to remove the negative battery terminal before I started installing anything. The deck turns on and functions properly. I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions as to what the problem was and how to fix it. Thanks.

    just a guess, the head unit is somehow interfering with the distributer which is part of the car ignition (it's where it all starts). Maybe it's not connected or earthed right. Just a question, why didn't you use the wiring harness? It could also be that by some stroke of bad luck that there is a mechanical fault with the car just after you intstalled the H/U. But I don't think that would happen with a honda!



    Old enough to do it, young enough to do it again.

    possibly the cause might be that the alternator is trying to keep up with the higher current draw caused by the h/u and adds extra drag on the motor mine does that if i dont have revs obove 1200rpm if the stereo is cranked and yes i have a good batt odessey 1500 cca and it shows a full charge all the time and it is hooked up right i got it done at the automotive electrical shop about a month ago and they say is just keep the revs up or turn it down
