RE: Can Line for Car Radio

Hi

I am going to change my radio in my punto hgt, last week the radio cut off, i got the radio code from fiat, but everytime i tried the code, it didn't work.

I was told that i need to get a radio with a can line, because the radio is connected to the main ecu and if i just replace it with out this can line the car won't start.

I was wondering if this is true? or has anyone had similar problems when changing their radio?

Re: Can Line for Car Radio

I changed the radio in my Mk2 Punto HLX (JTD) a couple of years ago & although a company did it for me, they never mentioned anything about having to have a CAN line when i chose the head unit so im presuming it doesn't have one. It's never caused any problems with the car, tho mine is a different engine & spec to yours so that might make a difference perhaps?
