PostPosted: Fri Feb 07, 2020 8:17 am    Post subject: Continental Stereo Fitment Reply with quote

Sent my car of for its MOT last week - sailed through. Whilst with my mechanic I asked him to swap the stereo for a Continental Stereo that was recommended on this forum.

After installing the stereo the lights on the stereo came on but no sound whatsoever.

I assumed this was a straight swap with no messing about with harnesses.

Does anybody know if I need any other cables to make this work or maybe I have a dud Stereo.

Yes almost every setup will need a harness of some sort but that depends what you started with.

This video may help you:

It should be a straight plug into the existing wiring loom. But maybe not if you have the Bose set up?

Someone will be along to confirm shortly I imagine.

I have a CDR-22 in there at the moment with a Kenwood Amp.

Any idea what harness is needed?

Continental TR7412UB-OR going in.

Mine was a straight swap, there are 3 plugs at the back and they all swapped over to the conti without issue, however I didn’t have a separate amp and I suggest there in lies your problem. Your radio will trigger the amp and the speaker wires will be fed from the amp. There will be an rca lead from the radio to the amp that sends the sounds. This is where I would start my search Thumb

I spoke Dynamic sounds and sent them pictures of the wiring in the car and they sold me an adapter to go between the unit and the original wiring. I am sure any decent ice company could advise and supply.

Ok thanks for your help.

Trip to the Car Audio shop to see if they can sort me out the correct wiring harness.

If you don’t have one locally, pictures emailed in worked for me and super quick delivery.

If I remember correctly the Continental units do not have any RCA pre-outs, so assuming the unit is trying to play via the speaker wire connections which don't go anywhere anymore.

A simple Speaker to RCA pre-out is required and then plug the RCA cables back in (as assuming not currently plugged in any more).

Should be job done
