Installed a new headunit, did everything right and disconnected the battery first before doing anything. Got it put together, reconnected the battery and now have no electrical power anywhere apart from the dash (which just seems to cycle through faults), accessory port and headlights. (No power centre console, no power windows, no central locking, no blinker, engine doesn't even crank at all)

Roadside assistance tested the battery, or at least something in the engine bay and apparently my battery is fine, what else could it be?

I have no idea but while you wait for a proper answer go through all your fuses, and check headunit isn't shorting out somewhere

Questions about the headunit.

Is it a factory headunit?
Is it after market?
Is it a series2 conversion?


If it’s a factory headunit, did you know they are VIN matched? The headunit has to be reflashed by someone with specific software or by Holden.

Envyouscustoms.com.au do such a service.

Not having it VIN matched will create the very circumstance you are in. It’s a security measure.

If you have converted to a series2 setup, the pin outs are different and an adapter loom must be used.
