I want your faulty electronics
I'm still playing about with this and I'm not sure if I'm getting anywhere.
I ran the cables for the tuner from the boot to the front, wired in the power (should it be constant or ignition live?) and connected the canbus cables to the thers.
This never worked. It was still displaying the above image.
I'm not worried about the dash display cause I've not my new clocks yet.
I had another look at it last night, checked that each unit was getting power and the canbus cables was making a connection to the stereo.
I did notice that I messed up a little bit on the canbus wiring.
I connected all canbus cables together and I don't think this was right.
The 2 canbus cables coming out of the stereo was connected to the 2 from the Tuner and the 4 from the TMC.
I disconnected all the canbus cables and separated the stereo cables from the TMC and from the tuner.
First I connected the Tuner to the stereo cables and tested that.
Still no connection.
All cables was connected with no breaks in the cables.
Moved on to the TMC.
The TMC has 2 sets of canbus cables and I'm not sure what each set does or goes where they are meant to be connected to.
So I plugged both sets in one at a time to the cables coming from the stereo and that never worked.
I'm a bit stuck here.
Unless I'm doing something massively wrong, stereo is faulty and not receiving any canbus signals, the power going to the TMC and tuner is not working (I've checked it and it appears ok) or its all faulty and I might as well give up.
With the TMC being a canbus gateway, does that mean it translates the stereo's signal to the rest of the car?
I'm annoyed that something that read to be so simple has became a right in the ass for me.
I looked at the loom I bought off ebay and that never helped. I used that and it still did not work.
Does anyone know if the TV tuner requires canbus to be connected for the stereo to know its there or does it do it via the 11pin round plug?
