    Question Date display

    Hi, I have an old Kenwood Cd player but was wondering is it possible to make the date show on the digital display whilst the CD player is on, and if so how.

    I remeber in my old Mk3 I managed to do this.....it was more luck than judgment as I don't know how I did it!!!

    Any ideas would be great......

    If you just want the date to stay and not go out when you switch the radio on there's a wire you need to cut on the car's wiring loom or the blue electric aerial wire on your headunit but that will power down the booster.

    Do a search on this as I can't remember the wire colour ......

    Um I just didn't plug wire the 'powered aerial' cable in (blue one) when I wired up the head unit on my Astra G and the date shows constantly...not sure or what this red/white wire is you speak of but that would usually relate to power...

    There is no cutting involved if you don't complete the circuit to the headunit.

    The blue electric aerial wire goes to the red/white on the cars block. Reason you cut it on the car is because there are 2 wires in the same block and one of them powers up the booster at the back.

    It can be cut at the ISO connector, I personally cut it at the MFD
