  1. I had this problem, its a fuse in the fusebox under the bonnet by the batery. hope this helps.
  2. No worries. i am always happy to help. Note to self. If quest turns up at a meet con a beer off him! /Note to self. :D :P Actualy best not i in enough trouble cos of the beer already!
  3. Just find the lighter wires and test with a multimetre, then simply cut the live wire and strip both ends. Strip the end of you new ignition power lead and crimp one of the lighter wires and the ignition power in to a male bullet connector. Crimp the female bullet connector to the other lighter wire and push together.
  4. No matter what you do both the perminant and the ignition powers from the headunit will need power. If you run a new cable you can connect both powers from the head unit to the new cable and your head unit will work even if you turn the car off. I cant think of any reason that you would want your headunit to be on 24/7. So the only other option is to run a cable from something that is only on when the ignition is on. (i.e. clock or cig lighter) I think i am right in saying the yellow is the ignition and the red is the perminant live feed. Just out of intrest what wires do you have sticking out where the head unit would be? also what car do you have?
  5. Have you replaced the blown dome fuse? on my old 91 celica i had blown the dome light fuse and lost power to the clock, headunit and interior lights.
  6. Right, you are going to need an amp, A sub if you want more base or wire to your existing speakers if you think they will handle it. you will also need an amp wiring kit. this includes some 4 awg power wire, a remote lead an earth wire and a set of RCA leads. You will need to run the power wire directly from the battery to the boot, (I take it that's where your having it.) run the power lead down the left side of the car. Don't forget to put a fuse within 6" of the battery. Remove your headunit and connect the remote lead and the RCA cables. Run the remote lead down left side of the car and the RCA cables down the right hand side of the car. How you secure the amp in your boot is completely up to you some people attach there amps to the back of the rear seats others attach it to there sub boxes. Its your choice, but make sure that it is secure. Next find a suitable place on the body work that you can attach the earth wire to. The closer it is to the amp the better. Try and find a bolt that you can access easily and attach it to that. You will have to grind off some of the paint around the bolt so that the earth has good contact. Connect the power, remote, earth and RCA cables to the amp and wire up you sub or wire to your existing speakers. If wiring a sub I would recommend running some 4 awg wire from the amp to the sub, other wise I would get some decent oxygen free cable and run it to the speakers. Try to avoid the power cables as they can cause interference. hope this helps.
  7. Not trying to be funny but WTF! Why do you need a parking aid? it aint that hard! "its behind you! When you reverse things come from behind you Tyrone!" - Vince from Snatch. Just turn and look out the rear window or use your mirrors! that's what there, there for ! I believe that a rear parking sensor was an option on the 7th gen but I don't know if they are any good. I know I wouldn't trust one! :P
  8. How has the guy that had it before you removed the last head unit? did he just cut the wires or was he using an ISO connecter? If he left you with bare wires there is a chance that the live feed has shorted out and blown a fuse. Check every fuse. You should have a permanent live and a live that only has power when the ignitions on. You should not have to run a new cable. But if you to I suggest running some #8 AWG direct from the battery. don't forget to put a fuse within about 6" of the battery. then just run the cable through the bulk head and up to the head unit. Personally I would try and sort out the original wiring first and only do the above when you really have to. sorry i couldn't be of more help.
  9. Spooky! :o i just seen a purple 6th gen in melksham for sale. i don't know the miles of it but it meets all the rest of your require ments. i think hte guy want £7725 for it. little bit high IMO but hey.
  10. Get a can of wd40 with the little straw attachment. Remove the door card, you should then be able to point the straw in the direction of the window runners. hope that helps.
  11. Yeah everyone in the car is fine. it wasn't a big thing, i slid on some ice and went under a chain link fence. Scratched the hell out of the paint work needed a new bonnet and some lights. but it was enough to write it off. :( :ffs: :(
  12. At least yours was drivin off! Mine left on the back off a lorry yesterday! :(
  13. This is just typical! i right off my celica and then a load of ladies with celicas join the club! :ffs: :ffs: :ffs: Oh well thats life i suppose. :(
  14. Have you changed any of the wiring for the rear lights? as it sounds like a wiring issue. if not check the rear brake light wires are all intact and that the brake light is not getting power from the + feed for the rear lights. you could also check the switch under the brake pedal to make sure that it is not sticking in the on position. hope this helps.
  15. Add a crossover in before the speaker, adjust it so that the very high frequencys get blocked that should sort it out.
