MattR is an unknown quantity at this point
Suddenly I have lost all power to the stereo in my E36 318i "97. Fuses are OK, 12v at each fuse in fuse box. I have 12v at the ACC switched power lead but no power at the continuous power going into the back of the stereo.
Are there any other fuses?
Any suggestions welcome
Thanks
Matt

Hey thanks for the tip, but what does HU stand for and how do I get to it?
Thanks
Matt

Head Unit (radio). You should have seen it when you tested the other leads. Also, check to make sure the ground is solid and that the constant power is connected well.

Thanks, Fuse @ HU is fine, I have metered from Radio fuse (9) to continuous power connector behind Hu and it is open circuit. If I run a lead from fuse power to back of HU then everything works fine, I just don't want to have to run a new cable through the firewall and leaving it looped through the passenger window seems unacceptable to my wife for some inexplicable reason.
Any idea if I can download a circuit diagram from anywher?
Thanks fo any help
Matt
