Hi there,

Yesterday I attempted to remove the factory mk9 head unit and to replace with a Pioneer fh-s820dab unit. I don't need sat nav and just wanted a fairly basic but quality unit. However, whilst I was able to remove the factory unit and install the new one, I just can't get any sound. The unit powers up, no problem, but I get an 'Audio Off' message on the HUD which I can't seem to get rid of. Has anyone else experienced this and do you have any advice please?

Thanks,

Jon

Hi. Yeah, like you, I had the SWC as well and they worked fine. Just the bloody 'Audio Off' message. I tried resetting the unit today to see if that would do anything, but nope. I think it's something in-built into the system. When I re-install the old unit, it says the same thing but then asks for the radio code. However, if I wait 5 secs it realises it has the factory stereo and you just have to reboot the stereo and it kicks in. I don't disconnect the battery, and wonder if that's something I need to try next. I'm going to ask a friend before any of that though. As for the harness/wiring, I got the fitting kit from Connects2. I've sent them an e-mail, we'll see what they say!

Yeah, so I set it up as standard. I didn't try anything else really. I have a mate who is a sort of mechanic guy, so I'm going to ask him this week to see what he thinks. It's such a ball ache. I've never had the issue in other cars - including an older Honda Civic.
