Correct. No issues with the standard head unit. Never blown a fuse. However doesn't seem to work on Canbus as I have to turn it on manually.

For it to work on canbus you need to enable option in menu (switched) and set it to on, it can become annoying though as every time you start the car it comes on, i find myself having to turn it off frequently as i like to hear out for foreign noises and knocks and bumps when i first fire up the motor.

As Dan says; It's still a CANBUS node, i.e. an element of the system, but you have to turn on the ignition switch function to "on" on the unit.

Press and hold the menu button until it comes up with setting the clock. Then press the menu button a few more times, four or five I think, until you get to the ignition switch option. Press the fast forward / skip forward track button to turn it on.

So your aftermarket head unit then....

Something in the wiring of the harness or the unit itself is causing a short or drawing too much current.

My initial thoughts - that blue wire in your pictures with the big shiny spade connector on the end. You're not just leaving that flapping around are you? Make sure it's taped up and insulated if not used.

I'm still a bit skeptical about the red and yellow being bridged together but I can't realistically see how this will adversely affect it, albeit if I was installing I'd have run in my own switched live feed to use.

Was the fuse in the back of the head unit 10amps?

In regards the red and yellow. The do separate out and a red cable leads to the block, but I've removed it as it goes to a missing location on the Fiat block. It's for an ignition live for Non Fiat units.

But some units have the red and yellow in opposite locations so it has the bridge to switch them around or in the case of not having one to be able to bridge them together (i.e like in my image)

The blue one has been taped up so as not to short out, but was untapped for the photo incase of any suggestions.

Re: RuSZ' Stilo 1.8 16v Dynamic

Well I work out the problem with the stereo wiring loom.

Me.

When I took the HU out of my old car before it was scraped I think I left the old wiring loom harness in it.

So when I picked up the pioneer HU to put in this car I picked up the wiring loom in the bag with it.

Turns out this was a Sony wiring loom that goes with the stereo in the other car, that doesn't have the loom attached as it didn't need it.

Turns out Sony have their power line in a different location...

Oops

Re: RuSZ' Stilo 1.8 16v Dynamic

Good work... and yes bridging the yellow and red is needed, one is for permanent live that allows the HU to keep its memory and the other wire is to actually power it up (switched). But fiat does not have switched so without the switched wire bridged it will have power to store its memory but not to power it up, try it out and you will see what i mean

Hi James,

That's a generous offer you make for Russ which is very kind of you. Just a quick note to say that if those lowering springs are from a 1.9JTD as listed in your signature then they will not be suitable for a 1.8 petrol.

The 4 cylinder petrols all share a common set of front springs and the JTD and 5 cylinder petrols are also common across the front axle.

Just for info the springs from a five door would not be compatible with a 3 door either (although I think you're both 3 door?).

Cheers!

Hey JAtkinson.

As per what Artermis said.

Are these from a 3dr JTD?

If so, how much do you want for them, PM me if they are still available - i have a multijet, if they will fit mine - i will have them depending on condition.

Are they for the JTD / Multijet - from what i understand, the diesels are the same across the diesel range, likewise petrol are the same across the petrol range.

Whats the condition?

Re: RuSZ' Stilo 1.8 16v Dynamic

They are for the JTD, I have two sets of fronts. One set is 35mm Prodrive, and other is a 45/55mm Eibach set. Both set's are like nearly brand new.

Re: RuSZ' Stilo 1.8 16v Dynamic

Well Stilo failed her MOT on Saturday. She's currently having work done and will be back on the road on Monday.


Offside and nearside front tyres, cuts to thread on inside (no way I could see them..)

Offside suspension ball joint split and leaking

Nearside ARB bush excessively corroded

Rear nearside brake failed, brake caliper stuck on and failed, needs new pads as well.
