Issue with replacing Factory double din on 2010 Civic SI
First post here so hello to everyone. I looking for a little help.
I recently purchased a Gen 8 2010 Civic Si UK car and am in the process of replacing the factory double din which I believe is made by clarion with a Sony XAV-AX200
long story short, I cant seem to get the dash clock to work. I am using a connects2 wiring kit which I have had replaced as we believed it to be faulty but the new one does the same thing. Everything is working including steering controls but no dash clock/ac display. if I revert back to the factory unit the clock works again.
One thing that I did experience during the install was that the factory double din seems to have a wiring kit of its own which has to be unplugged to allow the connects2 kit to be installed. if i plus this back in the clock works right away. Based on this I am wondering if the wiring is different in some way when the car came with a factory double din?
Has anyone replaced the factory Honda unit with an aftermarket kit and managed to retain the dash clock?
