AnyCar Link Troubleshooting

Audi:
-Stereo will not recognise the Changer mode: There are different programming options for the Audi/VW  range (listed on the control box). You may need to try other setting to find the one that works- BE SURE TO RESET BOTH THE ANYCAR AND THE VEHICLES STEREO WHEN CHANGING DIPSWITCHES

BMW:
-When pressing <mode> the unit switches to changer but then switchs back to radio or says NO MAGSN or NO DSC- Make sure the factory CD changer is unplugged completely at the changer. (The iBus circuit will get mixed information if the changer still has power)

Mazda:
-Stereo will not recognise AnyCar unit: some 2003-2004 Mazda stereos (mainly Atenza and Demio) require a circuit board modification to activate the changer port. You will need to solder a bridge wire in between the two points labelled L761 on the circuit board behind the plug. Click on the pic below for a close up.

 
 

Toyota:
-Stereo will not recognise the Changer mode or shows a scrambled display while playing: There are three programming options for the Toyota range (listed on the control box). You may need to try all three to find the one that works- BE SURE TO RESET BOTH THE ANYCAR AND THE VEHICLES STEREO WHEN CHANGING DIPSWITCHES

Nissan:
-Stereo will not recognise the Changer mode: Try resetting the stereo with the key on and off or even unplug for 20secs and plug back in with the AnyCar plug still in.

iPod/Aux problems:
-Aux doesn't seem to work: To switch the unit to Aux source you need to press either RPT, RDM or SCAN (depending on the stereo). The same button will switch back to iPod

-Won't charge: You may have a faulty ipod lead. Please return the cable to Current Electronics for a replacement to be arranged

-Audio only comes out one side: You may have a faulty ipod or vehicle specific lead. Please return the unit to Current Electronics for a replacement to be arranged

-Engine noise: If you experience a small amount of engine noise you can reduce this by adding a noise filter (off an old stereo loom) and fit to the orange and black (main ground) wires on the AnyCar plug
