Re: Radio - am I going mad?

Aah yes

You would not believe how many problems are fixed just by "Turning it off and on again".

Sometimes i wonder if the software inside these modules are made by Microsoft :lol: :lol:

Re: Radio - am I going mad?

I agree that the radio is supposed to work the way you tell it. Radio is on, until the door is opened, even if you take the key out of the ignition. In ye olden days i would suggest looking for a fuse, as the radio had both a live and a switched live, but nowadays the radio on/off signal is sent via...

Re: Android Head unit

Please recommend an Android head unit to replace the factory fitted R4.0 intellilink. I am not sure, anyone in here has actually taken the jump to an android unit. As a general guide i would suggest the following : 1. Get one that has as new a version of android as possible, the norm on these units...

Re: Astra 1.6 2005 failing to after sitting idle for a month

Is that blinking when you turn the ignition to start or just when putting the ignition on. Looks a lot like a electricity problem. Do you have some jumper cables and another car, if so, try to start the car, with the other cars battery connected to your car's via the jumper cables. Remember to have ...

Re: 2005 Astra failing to start

Looks like one of these.

1. Bad battery
2. Bad starter
3. Seized engine.

Have you tried rotating the engine with a socket and ratchet by hand ?

Should be quite easy to feel if the engine is seized up if you do.

Re: Is it important to get a car stereo with DVD Player?

DVD Drive is outdated and mechanical so likely to break.

Would be much more relevant to get one that can play video files on a USB media if you want to watch movies in the car.

Just dont drive and watch movies :)

Blimey, how bad does a gearbox have to be, for an M32 box to be considered an upgrade :)

Re: Intellilink firmware versions and dates

You could re-use the screen and buttons from the original R4.0 system as they're of identical part number. You would however have to re-pin the two connectors from Molex STAC64's to MCON's - bit of a pain, but no biggy, then additionally modify the USBs as the PSA unit uses a paired (dual) USB-B mi...

Re: Wireless Carplay

For £100? I reckon it's better to just stick with a cable which doesn't interfere at all. Would be better if they just got it baked into the firmware on the HMI's in the cars. From what i can see, all of the hardware needed is there, so it is only a matter of software. I would be totally ok with ha...
