    Help CD30

    Hi guys

    Just found this forum, loads of great info.

    I have a problem with the CD30 in my 05 SXI.

    About 3 months ago the battery was completly flat one morning, jumped off ok but did it again next day. Noticed the display was very bright showing 'EXTERN IN'. Short term removed the fuse and all is ok, replaced the fuse and ok for a few days then same again.

    No pattern to it but it drains the battery when it happens which is obviously no good and driving without tunes is no good either. Ive had the car from approx 3 months old and NEVER had anything plugged into the CD30 (parret etc).

    Any ideas?

    See the Mk5 electrical forum, apparently there is a fault causing these head units to switch on when unattended.

    Thanks for the replies guys

    have seen the threads regarding this unit turning itself on and he fix by leaving a cd in he player. Wasn't sure it was the same as the player doesn't do anything except show EXTERN IN on the dispay. No noise, the controls don't do anything.

    Will try the cd fix tonight and see if its the same fault.

    Yeah I read that in the manual. Haven't had one in myself and had the car from a year old so possible. Strange that it's started to do it now tho

    check theres not cables in the back of the stereo. when we used to get vans back that had hands free kits fitted they sometimes used to just cut em out and shove the wires back up so they couldnt be seen. worth checking as if this has been done it could be shorting the HU.
