Hi my radio unit has stopped working a few days ago, out of blue.
I have done what people usually suggested like
  • Soft reset (volume push down + num pad 6)
  • Fuses checked, okay
  • Fuses unplugged for 15 mins, re-insert, no luck

Before starting unbolting the central console, I would like to hear others' experiences like:
1. how likely the head unit is failed?
2. some US forums suggested that is a fault with the CD player and can be fixed by taking off a ribbon cable inside the head unit, anyone tried?
3. Any tried and tested android head unit; fascia plates; connecting cables recommended?

Thank you

H

If its completely dead some models have a small fuse on the back of the unit and also could be a bad earth connection sadly only checkable by removing the unit.
As for android I've heard good and bad stories like some have reception problems while others sound awful.
Personally I stick to the factory models I upgraded my C max Sony unit to a Sony DAB a few years back for little money with a unit out of a later year model plus a few parts I know the sound and quality is always there.
