Audio System on 07 2.2 EX Pretty Gone...
This is my first post so please be gentle
I have been drawn to the forum due to an issue (and one of many to be honest) I am having with my 2007 5-door Civic 2.2 CDTI EX S&L (thought I'd put the long name ).
When tootling down to Alton Towers the other week, CD player going, there was a hell of a bang which sounded like when you put speaker wires together and the radio shut off. Luckily I was on the M62 and hence stationary, so popped ignition off then on and it all came back to life, albeit the dash was VERY hot.
Anyways, all was well until the LCD screen (which shows clock, climate etc) started to flicker with a 'feedback' type noise over the speakers and eventually went off all together, only flicking on now and again.
Over the next few days, the radio started to jump stations, jump functions and the CD player was very temperamental.
Finally, the stereo has lost all controllability; it is constantly 'on' playing white noise of flickering volume levels, so annoying and deafening that I have had to pull the fuse as I cannot turn it off.
Has anyone ever had such issues? Funnily enough the Sat Nav screen has remained functional (until I pulled the fuse) but the audio menu will not show up, voice rec don't function and Bluetooth is dead.
Any help would be brilliant and much appreciated, even if it is only advise on dismantling the dash.
