    I would say it's nothing to do with your climate control. As you can see it's been wrapped all on it's own for some reason. Are you missing the diversity connection from the standard stereo?
    I had intermitant blowers and it was a knackered fan.

    I can confirm the inside of the diversity coaxial is white.

    Thanks for all replies it is the diversity coaxial, I was gonna put the symphony 2 in but it looks like whoever fitted the radio was wire snipping happy so might just give that a miss and get a nice new stereo whilst the bank holiday discounts are on.
