    Post blowing fuses

    Hi my brother fitted a headunit in his car which he bought from one of his pals when the volume is turned up the main fuse for the radio blows not on the radio its self but in the cars fuse box. Does anyone have an ideas, I thought i might have be to do with to low wattage speakers but the more i think it the more i think i'm talking crap and that the speakers would blow first. Cheers colin

    Is the car the headunit's in an astra or vauxhall? If it is it's probably the red and yellow wires (the power and accessory wires) on the headunit that are the wrong way round. Vauxhall for some strange reason decided to do things differently.

    That kept happening to me until I changed them round, now everything is ok

    Hope this helps mate.

    this isn't really limited to just the scottish members so ill move this to the ICE forum,

    EDIT:

    as its not a astra/zafira ill move it to the other car chat forum to get the best replies
