Hi to all,has anyone ever come across what can only be described as a warning sound (similar to the temperature warning) coming from the stereo I thought it could have been the multi-changer in the boot but was'nt, on one occasion I have been quick enough to see the radio dispaly show 'phone' as the warning went off, it just seems to happen at random intervals everything works fine, just annoying really.

Many thanks in advance to anyone who might have a clue to the problem.

Cheers (confused) Tony Question

Do you have a Harman Kardon system Tony? If so then this was the start of my amp giving up! It made bleeps and static noises through the speakers even when the head unit was switched off!

Hi Owen,
thanks for your input, yes I have a Harman Kardon unit and what you described is very similar to mine other than the static noise, presumably it meant a new unit when your amp went.
I guess I will just have to wait and see what happens !!

cheers Tony

I don't use the stereo much so I haven't bothered to change anything. I understand that the system is incompatible with other units as it is 2 ohm so it would require a complete strip out and replace. I'd rather spend my money on uprating my brakes and maybe some engine mods later on.
I just wish it was a simple job to disconnect the amp so it will shut up!
