    Car audio noob, needs help...

    Hey everybody, this so far out there I hope someone has heard of it.

    I have a Sony CDX-CA700X XPlod AM/FM/CD head unit controlling a 10 disc changer..

    It has been running great for over a year, then out of the blue, last week, whenever I make a right hand turn, be it a sharp fast turn or even a slow gradual right hand turn, the unit shuts down, and then comes back on. (And it really seems to be isolated to right hand turns)

    It keeps the time and what not, but the display goes completely blank for a second or two, then comes back on, someitmes the music actually comes back on, but mostly the display comes back, and the unit is off. (As in just the time showing)

    I tore the dash apart today, looking for a loose wire, and found none, the fuses are all good, ground is secure, and I could find nothing wrong.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Is their any wiring getting pinched by moving parts around your steering column? If not, there might be a loose component/piece inside the HU shifting and grounding itself out when you make a turn. Other than that, do as they say, and get a new HU.

    I don't want to sound like a copy cat...OK I do so I will...

    Replace that head unit...with an Alpine.

    And yes... I am Alpine bias...but they are good and trustworthy and won't "XPLOD"

    Have you tried talking to Sony?

    Clarion VCZ628 In-Car 6 Disc DVD Changer
    4 Pioneer 6990R 6X9 5-Ways
    X-Box
    3 more monitors coming soon...


    "Four 15's didn't see no wires...then I heard BOOOM from the amplifiers"

    Hmmmmm...sounded good in the song...but makes no **** sense in reality. Just a thought.
