Agreed... Andrew did a great job on that one - next project for me will be to post one showing the proper way to install a talented dog in the passenger seat as a cupholder, and another showing the method for making an Alpaca-fur headliner.

Help!

Ok, so it seems obvious I'm not the only one with a stereo problem on my '03 CC coupe.

Three things about the stereo.....

1) buttons are sticky, and I can't even read them!
2) screen blinks (like an old TV on "rabbit-ears" with poor reception) whenever I go over ANY kind of bump. Even if its a slight "tilt" in the road.
3) I have no sound from the rear speakers. Might this be from amp? How Do I test if amp is good/bad or if it's the head unit that is toast?

Somebody please help me understand what the unit under the center console (between the seats) is used for? What purpose does it serve for the stereo? How do I remove the rear amp if it is toast, and what do I replace it with?

Yes, I have the auditorium 200 system in the car.

Thanks to all who have helped thus far! Keep on keepin..... keep on helpin!

Cheers,

(Canadian Dave)

Hope this helps people out.
Andrew,

Do you have the same type of presentation for pulling out the rear amplifier for my Auditorium 200 system, and the NIT unit in the console?

Thanks!

Unfortunately I don't. I never had any issues with mine (other than the sound quality sucked) so I left them alone.

I figured out the problem. Turns out the previous owner (and obviously dealership I bought from) tried "masking" the problem.

I took the head-unit out, and found that it was covered in duct-tape to hold it together. NO WONDER there was a poor connection for wires in the display, and lack of audio coming from it.

I found from a great sponsor on the site a new head unit for a great price.

Look at the pictures of what I found when I pulled the unit out myself.

DO NOT BUY FROM - LuxorMotorSports in East Dundee Illinois.

Dave,
Hope this fixes your problems. There is great support on this site and we should all try to use the sponsors whenever possible- they are great resources.

Sprocket,

Once I receive the piece, and it's in the condition the sponsor promised, and in great working condition I will post the name of the sponsor.

I just don't want to give credit to someone if it's not warranted, and if the situation turns out bad, I want to give them the opportunity to fix it before posting anything negative!

just trying to give respect and honesty to all users here.

It's much better than when I owned an Infinti G35 and the forum I was part of had a bunch of 18 year old kids acting like they had permanent boners and wanted to fight everyone....... good to see maturity on a forum that can be accessed by all. (not that boners are bad.......I may be 30, not 18... but my car gives me an erection after I wash it and take it out on the windy rocky mountains....)

All right guys im about to do the big job tomorrow, removing some of the radio buttons and sending them to stickyno more. The large console part around the reverse also needs to be refinished, as I cleaned it with some plant-based solvent and the result is a bit too matte for my taste (and not even). I also have to remove the 2 window buttons... I hope everything goes well and I dont f*?K with the car...
