Car audio cannot switch off

Recommended Posts

Twincharged

@RadX pan chan my car lei.  Car audio cannot switch off.....

You can see the car key is not even connected to ignition and the audio wont off..  mine is not keyless in case you think it's the push button to in engine. 

Anyway I disconnected the car battery and re connected it.  Audio still haywire (and swallowed a CD rom as well) but at least can switch off now.....

Maybe I really need to change to Honda soon before more things break down..   btw the HU is aftermarket one that just finished it's two year warranty.

I don’t think is car issue. Since yours is aftermarket Hu, you should go back to the installer and check. Or you are finding excuses to change car?😛

You are right.   Not car issue but u see just last week or so my aircon was spoilt.  A month or so my key button spoil but I DIY repair.  You can see the threads i start.

 Now it's this HU.  Literally within a week of each other.  Make me wonder next week........

Wah what brand huh?

Few days after warranty end

so fast up lorry already.

Their engineers very good.

Make sure all the components fail just after warranty.

So customers have to buy a new one.

:a-happy:

This kind of very skill engineers

very in demand in the industry.

Not easy to do you know.

Just add a hard kill switch to off it when you stop the engine. 

Opps no more excuse to change car!

Sorry what's a hard kill switch?  I pressed the power off button it doesnt work.  I had to disconnect car battery to kill the HU.  After reconnecting it can switch off liao but still no music.  But reverse camera still work la

Car audio's power is connected direct to the battery 24/7/365; it never really power-off unless disconnect battery like you did. When you turn you car key, it just activate or de-activate its functions (display and sound etc). What you encountered is basically its micro-controller got hanged! (like some computer hangs). Encountered similar situation long long ago and it was an old pioneer HU.

no music? check if all/any settings including radios are gone since you disconnected battery before....
