    steering wheel controls

    hi folks
    me and my mate both have astras mk4 and Sony cd player
    but we have steering wheel controls and they work buy buying a box form halfords and it connects to your cd player and operate the cd player from the controls

    but any way the lights on the controls only work when u have the radio on but when u change on to a cd the lights go out

    does anyone have and ideas how to get them to stay on? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    hiya mate, i had the same problem... see here: http://www.m1gst.com/vb/showthread.php?t=54223

    weird thing is, if you put 'TA' on... the lights come on all the time, but a TA when you listening to music is well annoying!

    The way i'd sort this problem out is to use the remote out of the headunit instead of the electric aerial feed that goes out when the CD is on

    My Sony stereo has an option of TP as well (not a clue what this is) and when i leave this on my lights stay on. Plus no annoying traffic alerts!
