Hi All First post here, been a Polo owner for 3 years and absolutely love it, just started to mod it after paying it off. I'm looking for some help with a wiring diagram for the headunit connections on a 2017 6c GTI uplift model. I have an aftermarket head unit but I need to know what to wire where. Is anyone able to help at all. I have attached an image of the vw connector block if that helps at all. Thanks in advance Jon
I replaced the aftermarket JVC head unit in my 1998 VW Polo 1.6 with a a Sony Xplod head unit. During the install, I noticed that with the illumination (blue and white) wire that the dashboard lights stayed on so I disconnected this wire. The stereo appeared to work fine, came on with ignition ok and switched off ok. The next morning, the VW barely started, and the clock had reset to 00:00. I removed the stereo head unit at this time. I left the car for a few hours and then started it again only to find that all the dash instruments now appeared to be dead. The clock and odometer displays were completely blank and the rev, speedo, fuel and temperate gauges stuck to 0. I have recharged the battery and and checked the fuses which all look ok. What is the next step/s to look at fixing this issue? Thanks in advance! TL;DR VW Polo 1998 - instruments panel not working following stereo head unit swap.
