Very simple, but you will have to alter the connections on the back, and at
the moment I cannot remember the pin layout.
Basically you have two power feeds to the radio, on permanent, which hods
the memories and coding information safe, and one switched with the ignition
key. You need to remove this (and tape up the wire end) and replace it with
another permanent feed.
thanks for that
Does anyone have any idea why the cigarette lighter is wired in the same
Seems a little odd to me and hardly a safety feature!
Not that I smoke, it's just a really useful power source; but only, it seems
when the ignition is turned on!
I don't know why they sometimes do that. I have a 307SW which has the cigar
lighter wired in that way, but according to the handbook, the saloon is
wired permanently on. I certainly don't understand the logic.
I believe there's a fuse which you can plug into a different socket to
enable it to be independent of the ignition.
That's the case with the Xantia, if Haynes is to be believed. I don't use it
myself because of the lighter being hidden in with the ashtray.
