Hi,
The OEM head unit in my car has started playing up!
After 10 mins of driving the display goes blank and the audio stops. No sound at all. I have discovered that if toggle the steering controls the audio will come back on but air con controls and display are still blank.
Has anyone the forum seen this?

My car is UK spec VXR8 (an HSV Clubsport R8 imported by Vauxhall UK).

Hey mate,
Your head unit facia may not be attached properly or has been bumped or pulled at unintentionly. Being a VE, pull on the base of the facia and the facia will come off the radio box (dont be scared to give it a decent pull as it is clipped on at the rear). Check the connectors for damage and blow them out gently. Refit the facia, push on both top and bottom at once. When it clicks push all around the facia and make sure it is secure.

See if that helps.

Cheers,
Daniel
