    mk4 MFD issue with head unit?

    hey all
    since I brought my mk4 back late last year, i've had a slight problem with my multi function display..

    basically the time works fine, but the date display only works when the car is on accessories; when i turn the car on the date disappears but the time stays.

    i figured because behind the date display are the symbols for the cd player, is this an issue caused by incorrect head unit wiring?

    any help would be appreciated, cheers!

    hey thanks boys, i'm not too bad with auto elec stuff and i was thinking there would definately be a wire you can either hardwire or earth out to make it stay, just couldn't be bothered pulling it out and having a peek myself lol.

    appreciate it!
