i just spent a day tracing the wiring looms to fit the stereo of my car. everything is reading perfectly on the meter but the stupid fucking stereo wont fucking work. well it worked splendidly for twenty minutes and then decided to retire when i removed the key from the ignition. just flases a stupid little light every four seconds now. every point on the loom is reading perfectly (12v or 4ohms). everything else on that loom is working. fuck this anyways.
Put the key back in.

ann post ; some car stereo's wont work off the ca battery independent of the ignition (stops you running the batt down). You car maybe one of these?

i have one of those yes, its only supposed to work in the last ignition stage before turning the car on and when the car is on, in my internet rage i left out the part that mentioned that i put the key back in, started the car etc etc etc etc and its just stupid flashing light stuff all the time.

Ah... Sounds like it could be fucked. I'm sure you have already googled the said issue to no avail. You could try popping it back out disconnecting it and reconnecting it, could be some security thing?

there's been a lot of connect/disconnect/test looms/reset, checked the security side of things too. it hates me.

That blows.

I feel your pain.

Did you try shouting at it/bashing it with your fist? Fixes most stuff like.

planned obsolescence has won the day. i managed never to get angry with it but the shitty little piece of plastic that holds the removable front panel has decided its reached its target number of uses, rendering all further attempts at repair futile. I am going to smoke the unhealthiest thing i can find.

I would be fucking incandescent with rage in that situation. Apofuckingplectic.

Every curse word imaginable.

I like fixing stuff. Cannot take it when some inanimate object is not playing ball and I've put my heart and soul into the fucking thing.
