    Jeez.... I think my HU is Busted.

    this is JUST great. when i go to turn on my car today my didnt turn on. At first i thought it was a wiring problem. I checked everything, even reconnected the power wires. The Head unit would turn on for a while, then turn off. Then turn on. then off, and so on for a good 5 minutes. Once it stayed on long enough for me to put the unit back into its harness. then it turned off.

    So i check the fuses. everythings fine. i take the face off... the security light is blinking so i know that there is power going thru it. So i put the Face back in. Nothing.

    So my hypothesis is something is jacked up with the face, or the unit itself.

    Is my HU just busted, or is there something i am missing?

    Re: Jeez.... I think my HU is Busted.

    that sux, going on and off as you described sounds like a loose connection. If all of your wiring is good it could be a solder joint inside the unit. Does it smell like you let the smoke out of it? If it isn't under warranty open it up and check the connections where the power leads come into the unit.

    Re: Jeez.... I think my HU is Busted.

    It would come on/off pretty much randomly too right? Not like when it got bumped around? I think mine started to do that right before i took it out. I just assumed it was a connection in the harness coming loose.

    Re: Jeez.... I think my HU is Busted.

    You checked the fuse(s) in the car's fuse box right? Sounds like something is wrong with the acc wire somewhere/how if it isn't the deck itself.

    security light dosn't run off of the switched 12v line. The switched line is the one you need to check conections and fuses on
