Hi,
My stereo in my 1999 skoda octavia keeps randomly turning off and then sometimes wont turn back on but other times it will. It will always turn on first time after i start the car though. Also only the back speakers work, is it meant to be like this? If not how do i fix this?
Thank you

It could be the head unit, wiring or speakers but probably the head unit. I have decided to keep my 1U running as long as physically possible because I can’t be doing with the VAG later cars, too complex and problematic... and big! Last year I pumped £5k in parts into it rebuilding the running gear front to back including a six speed conversion… even at cost with no VAT the parts alone was financially bewildering to many but if you add in the 300 or so hours on the lift… The rear screen heater failed yesterday, I have been resoldering the tag back on annually for 15 years but it won’t go back on so £150 for a new glass on Thursday plus gangster tint…
