How to Install aftermarket head unit

I got Halfords to fit me a Sony XAV AX3005DB thinking that the £30 odd quid was worth me saving my energy but I sorely regret it.  They've shaved a bit off the top part of the head unit to get the aftermarket CTKVX42 fitted and my top screen is now blank.  The people in the store seem to have no idea what they're talking about despite "doing it for 20 years" apparently.  

I don't have that speaker wire with the black loop on my kit at all so that can't (or can it?) be the issue with the screen.  What else could it be?  Wrong Connects2 or something?

Connect2 upgraded the kit a while ago it now has DIP SWITCHES.
Did they give the paper sheet that came with the kit this will tell you.

Hi, I made the mistake of having a Pioneer DAB130 fitted to replace the standard Stereo Unit by Halfords and they have messed it up!

I think I need the Fascia kit and necessary wiring to make it work correctly. Can you tell me what I need to enable the following to work correctly as there is less working than I expected?

  1. Original digital display does not work now – so I cannot see things like temperature etc
  2. Steering wheel controls do not work
  3. Parking Assist Does not work (front and Rear)
  4. There is no facia surrounding the stereo head unit!
Can you tell me where can I purchase them and how much it is

Also, last question, is would a trained stereo fitter be able to easily use your products to do the job correctly

Sorry to ask but Halfords don’t seem to know what they are doing!

Thanks for your help

PS I attached a photo of how Halfords left my car looking for your amusement

That's disgusting mate I feel for you there.

You need a special surround to finish that off and a connects2 possibly or head unit programming if it's configurable.

If you were nearer I would look for you.

I hope you didn't pay them.

I'm in Bournemouth,

I do have the parts needed here (although the surround is painted blue and grey).

If you wanted it sorted drop me a pm or send me a email via my website You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view..

Got the same problem today as you , I have fitted the following kit 

Everything works ok including steering controls , however the top display ( red led one ) does not work 

Did you manage to get this working ?
