    Radio died.

    Hi all,
    I had the car cleaned last week. When i picked it up the oem radio would not come on. No light in display. A local audio shop said the detailers got armour all inside and shorted it out. They claim head unit needs to be replaced. Can the current unit be fixed? Should I replace with the same or after market. And if after market do they have units that will wire up the steering wheel controls?

    Thanks for the help. Rick

    get a quote in writing and take it to the detail shop they have insurance for stuff like that but most likely will pay for it so you dont have to turn it in to their insurance along with attorney fees good luck

    Thanks the shop is getting it fixed. Seems the employee shorted the head unit out somehow. But he fessed up when confronted by manager. All is good. Still would like to know how to get an after market unit to work with wheel buttons.

    actually that is a good shop since it will back up its mistakes without going to court

    They make a converter that will make it work. I think pac makes it. I think you have to have a head unit with a remote. Look at crutchfield.

    Thanks for all the help.... Still need a head unit, or a fix it shop. I don't want to stick the shop for a new factory unit. They thought they had a unit, it fell trough. Any thoughts? Rick

    I guess it is up to you whether you want a stock or an aftermarket stereo. It seems like they are willing to work with you to resolve the problem. Price out some stock headunits and see what they are willing to give you.

    No. Everything is fine, guy has his job. So hard to find carwash emloyees here. Just an honest mistake. They have the TA to fix the car. No need I have vehicles to drive now. But I need my TUNES. So they can keep it till resolved.
