Need your knowledge
After selling my extremely thirsty Mercedes Kompressor I have finally bought a ztt cdti - and I love it. It handles better, feels better and since I've had it ( 1 week) I haven't visited the garage lol. I'm sure I will read the majority of the threads on this forum but until I do I would greatly appreciate your advice. As I was driving along the road this afternoon the glass part of my boot decided to open, I pulled over and closed it and over the next 30 mins or so it opened a couple of times. Later on in the day I tried to open the said window but the solenoid isn't working, Which I'm fine with, it'll give me and my dad something to do on Saturday. Now keep that in your mind for the mo.
The headunit in the car is a kenwood Krc394 (tape & cd changer) which is no good to me as everything I have is mp3, so I decided to change it......now this is where it all becomes a little weird. Long story short and sideways, a few of the wires in the new headunit need to be re-situated and this was discovered when I turned the ignition off to make sure I had the power leads the right way...... the wipers (front and back) began one sweep. I turned the ignition on and the back one began to sweep constantly, using the wiper stalk I turned it on and off.....and then it ceased. Amused I did this a couple of times and then the glass boot opened up by itself.??? Now as I mentioned I'm fully aware the headunits wires are mixed up - I just don't understand how the glass boot opened especially as the button wasn't and still isn't working. Has anyone came across this before.
Incidentally until I get a multi-metre tomorrow I put the original headunit back in and the steering controls aren't working. I'm I right in thinking this has something to do with the little blue diode under the peak? I did put it back where I found it, but I've obviously done something so any advice on this would also be appreciated.
