hello people
long time reader, first post. (thanks to everyone on here many problems are solved at home)

ok so the radio,display and aircon controls have been not been coming on when i start the car, but within 5 or so minutes (sometimes alot longer) then just all start working. but couple days agot it wont come on at all. few hours driving is literally DRIVING me crazy!!!!
i have checked ALL related fuses even tho i cant seeing it being a fuse because it was coming on.
is there any plugs that i should be checking that could have come loose?
or earthing points?
im putting it on the market soon so i need to fix this asap

thanks in advance to anyone that can help

Pull the facia off and refit it, doing this cleans the connectors and sometimes cures the fault.

Just watch out for the gear stick as it takes some force to come off.

Actually just read your post and the facia shouldnt affect the SIC. Try it anyway and see if it makes any difference.

Ill get back to you....

OK if your VIN is prior to L895240 there were issues with the SIC itself and they were replaced with revised modules.

Part No. Description
92200357 SIC (green)
92200358 Sport SIC (red)

Hi folks.

Have just recently purchased an 07 SV6 GTR. Sometimes when going over a bump, or for no reason at all, my air-con lights go out, controls stop working and the radio quits, similar to the OP. This will re-set itself by turning off the ignition and re-starting (most times). Chassis number 6G1EK547X8L962297. Could this be similar problem?

PS: What does SIC stand for?? Where I work it stands for "staff-in-confidence"

what's an 07 SV6 GTR???, remove facia as ricey has said may fix if not off to dealer-push hard enough you may get sic free of charge if it was a known issue
