I cant believe the aggro i'm having with the dash pod
It all worked perfectly- no problems at all, until i decided to strip it down to give it a clean and to affix the plastic cover a bit better.
i used a f
king nail wipe (don't ask why) to give the lcd readout a clean, durrrr what a spanner i felt when the nailwipe literally ate away at the lcd screen.
Ordered a new screen, after lots of messing about got it working.
Drove it to get it retrimmed, halfway there half the screen loses lines, becomes apparant its just a bad connection as if i put pressure on the back of the pod it all comes on again.
So i strip it down to repair- not joking must have stripped down 6 times at least and problem is still there i.e missing half of screen and comes back on when i put pressure on the back.
So now where i have taken it apart so much the solder joints on the knob which lets you scroll through the menus breaks
So i take it to some electronics bloke who re solders it neatly for me/.
Get it back to the car and initially when i turn the knob i get a loud clicking noise- like when its got a flat battery.
Here is where i have left the car and havent been back since.
The guy trimming it said he turned the plug the other way as the bloke who soldered the wires may have got them the wrong way round.
Now we get all lights working around the knob, but it wont scroll through, initially you get the door is open message and the beeping- press knob in to stop this, then your straight onto the rev counter display, turn the knob and you get 'awaiting data' message flashing up- this then wont go away and we cant get any other displays up.
Its driving me f
king mad tbh (that and giving up smoking) What do i do now? anyone know wtf is going on or anyone know who can fix it?
