    just bought a pioneer aftermarket stereo for my A3 54 plate.

    I plugged everything in using the connects 2 harness and the unit has no power.

    I literally have no idea what I’m doing. Please can you help a damsel in distress.

    Thanks

    Yeah was working before I bought it. I’m assuming the harness is the problem

    If you have a circuit tester ie a small screwdriver with a yellow wire on one end you could test which is live from the car side of harness. Then see which one it connects to on the stereo on the harness. Some cars have the power other way round. Mines I had to alter the power so stero was on only on with the ignition otherwise it would drain the battery. Where are you based?

    So my brother sorted it. We did have to do the ignition on wiring. Then he sorted out the rear speakers not working too. Once I explained what to do he did it in 10 mins.

    Thanks for your help.
