  1. I’m wondering if anyone out there can help. I bought an aftermarket radio for my Lupo and am pretty sure I need an adapter. Can anyone possibly tell me which one? I have attached 3 photos - 1 of the wiring in the car and the other 2 of connectors which came with the new radio. Any help is greatly appreciated 👍

  4. Hello everyone, In my Lupo 3L beta radio, the search function (<< | >>) does not work - when pressed, it does not change the fm radio - I need to use the manual selection (< | >). The scan function works well. What could be the problem? Thank you!! Jet
  5. So I have the standard tape style radio and 6 CD changer in my GTI. I'm sick of creating CDs and whatever to listen to music when I have it all on my phone so I'm looking at adding an aux input to the car. Looking around on eBay there's a few different options. There's the connects2 blocks and similar products available but I'm not sure if they only work with the single unit CD changer and not the 6 that I have? I also like the look of something like this - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Car-Audio-AUX-Switch-Cable-For-VW-Volkswagen-Jetta-MK5-Golf-GTI-Tiguan-Hot-/291945233253?hash=item43f94abb65:g:mE8AAOSwo4pYJaXT Has anyone done / seen anything similar and how simple would it be for me to set up? Cheers

  11. Hello good fellow Lupo Heads! I recently got my first car (about 4 months ago), which is a basic 2004 Lupo 1.0, nothing to fancy but still a charm & love it more & more each day! ...Anyway, to cut to the chase Im hankering after a nice new stereo & a set of decent replacement speakers for the doors, all within a good budget - say no more than £250. ...Please forgive me and my lack of knowledge on both cars & fitting stereos etc but I could really do with some help/advice on how I would go about changing the stereo & what will/won't fit, & what I will need to buy etc for it to work & look in good shape? ...Im certain I want a stereo with built in cd & bluetooth but not to sure yet as to go for a single or double din unit (as I believe my lupo can accommodate either, having a stock vw beta radio & stock vw single cd player underneath). I have my eyes on getting a Sony MEX-N5100BT (as a replacement to the stock beta radio) then a pocket underneath (as a replacement to the stock cd player). I just want some feedback on how I would go about creating this set up in my car &/or if it would actually work? I have to admit I'm a little on the fussy side so would like it to look nice & not bulge out from the dash to much. Am I right in saying I could replace the stock radio for the Sony MEX-N5100BT as is, then simply replace the stock cd player with this pocket underneath the stereo: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271891048751?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2648&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Would really appreciate any advice/help! Cheers Matt.
  12. Hi, My Lupo's standard stereo unit has been playing up of late and after many hours of asking friends and reading forums I'm at the end of my tether! It is really difficult to correctly convey the issues it's having, but I'll give it a good shot. I have the standard VW stereo that came with the car, I use a tape adapter to listen to my music and lately it keeps making a clunking noise and cutting the sound completely. The same issue happens when I'm listening to the radio or using the CD player. About 10 seconds after turning the radio on it will clunk (as if you have put a tape in) and appear on the display as if there is a tape playing, however there is no sound coming from the speakers. Even if a tape is in the stereo it still plays no noise at all. When there is no noise, the display is still on and I can use all buttons to select other settings, but there is still no sound. I've had the stereo out to check all connectors are still in tact (which they are) and I've even disconnected the CD unit and tested without it, and the problem still occurred. Whilst testing, whilst searching for stations the speakers were making white noise sounds and turning the volume changed the tone of the sounds. I cannot find any information about this problem on any other forums so please, someone bring me some answers! There is nothing more annoying than having to reset your stereo every 10 seconds! Cheers! Ellie
  13. Hi all, sorry to be one of those "first post is a question" types but any input would be appreciated. Having recently bought a 1l Lupo E (1999) I've just fitted a new stereo and behind the Din slots there was another connector not plugged into anything that looks like it comes from the same loom as the hazard lights switch (just below the din slots). It is separate from the ISO blocks but is a plastic connector with 2 pins, the wires leading up to the connector are brown and blue/grey. I'll try and get a picture tomorrow but does anyone have any idea what it could be ? Cheers, Tomm
  14. I have a 2007 fox with an original radio in it - my problem is that the text display on the radio doesn't always work. the radio otherwise works fine and the display is backlight with the orange glow, it just doesn't show me the text of what station I'm listening to. I'd thought it was worse during cold weather but I don't think that's the pattern anymore... Any ideas on what might be going on and how I can fix it (short of replacing the unit)? Maybe related but I've noticed there's some sort of electric plug / wiring under the driver's seat and the plug closest to the front of the seat has one wire that seems to have broken and needs to be re-stripped and re-inserted. I can't find anything online saying what that's for - does anyone know this is for? Thanks!
  15. Hi guy and girls really need some help here .. I was sat a college today listening to music and my mate kicked the dash board its an after market radio and it just cut out .. I have been through the fuses and it had blown I swapped it over but the radio still didn't work I tryed a different head unit in the car and that didn't work .. i tryed both in another car and they worked fine so i grabbed the multi meter and checked the connections... i have 2 12v live feeds coming to it (should i ??) but it seems i have no switched 12v for some reason . it would be great if someone could help... Thanks

  17. Hi. I've got a new radio in my lupo which worked fine. Then I put 2 new speakers in the front which worked fine. The I put 4 speakers in the parcel shelf and it worked fine for about half day then the radio just went off while I was driving. I got told i would need an amp. So I got a amp and wires the back speaker to it but the radio still won't turn on. I went to the shop and the radio worked fine there and he said it would be the earth wire, but I don't have a clue about it? Can anyone help? Thanks
