radio power problem

Recommended Posts

Hello all im hoping someone as had this problem before i have a 2ltr s-max 07 plate and when i open the dorr or switch the ignition on

the radio will not light up and show time or anything and when you push the on knob it will come on but no time showing only dashes it will tell you that you have power for 1 hour i thought it was the radio but having changed it i still have the same problem as anyone got any ideas thanks

The "ignition feed" on the S-Max is a signal on CAN bus only (same as time), so the CAN connection on the radio seems to be gone. As the problem persists after changing the radio it looks like its the wiring, or the connection on the other side (the instument cluster as the gateway).
