    Bizarre one really,

    As some of you may remember I fitted the dension iPod kit a long while ago it worked great. Brilliant bit of kit.

    But when cold weather sets in anything below about 5 degrees C, it won't connect. Until it reaches a warmer temperature.

    I can't work out whether it is the connection into the ipod thats the problem or the cable running into the back of the HU.

    Any ideas?

    thanks

    Very strange - never had this with mine. Where have you attached the ground wire?

    My ground is secured to one of the rear casing screws on the HU. Yours?
