147 CD/Radio wont Turn On after ipod Install!!!
I am quite possibly one of the angriest men in the South West at this very moment.
I have spent the afternoon patiently setting up my new ipod adaptor with the 147 (connect2) and I got it to work with everything 'hanging out of the dash'. Was pleased with this as I had a quick try yesterday and couldn't get it running...
Anyway - went to put everything back in and as soon as I turn the ignition there is nothing from the radio. It simply will not turn on. Everything else still functions OK. Heater / Aircon controls all fine (well the displays are still a law to themselves but that's another issue...) and all other electrics are all good. I have checked the wiring to the radio and it doesn't look like anything is loose and I dont think I have damaged any wiring as there seems to be plenty of slack available and it all looks fine that I can see (there are a fair few cable grips holding the stereo cables all together).
Any advice? I recall reading about stereos sometimes needing an hours after being turned off to come back online but I'm not sure what scenarios this may happen..??
This has to be the most annoying thing any of my Alfas has ever done, purely because it was working 10 minutes ago!!!
