    Default Correct stereo for s1 1987 205 GTI

    What is the correct stereo for an s1 oz delivered 205 GTI? I currently have a Clarion PU-9225A in my car that I thought was original, but looking at the harness it looks like it was put in by a previous owner and taken from another Pug. Thanks in advance!

    I don't know the model number but I have S1 brochure at home that will have photos of the correct stereo. I expect others have similar that they can post, or bump this after Jan 15 when I am back in Sydney and I will post up a photo.

    Can anyone else shed some light on this? I've found info on correct stereos for the locally delivered S2 and S3, but coming up short on the '87 model.

    Looks to be the correct one. I remember it had AM stereo capability, don't know whether such a thing still exists?

    C-quam AM stereo is dead and buried. The problem was a shortage of suitable receivers.

    It's been replaced by DAB.

    DAB is great, don't know why it hasn't caught on, streaming maybe?

    DAB, is broadcasts are VHF . And don't handle multipath or low level signals very well. Hence not many mobile DAB systems are fitted.

    Many have a DAB radio in their homes. And if there is sufficient signal strength the results are excellent.

    Which is truly sad as I came of Uni loving radio and hey presto the car had it and it still is there after f-wit thieved his way through it, pity its no longer, even understand the modulation sadly. Now I may join Graham and try DAB, I also love antennae so how hard can it be!

    Good DAB reception is all about field strength. 200 mhz is well into the VHF spectrum.

    Some use spatial diversity antennas.

    My 1987 car has the original radio (I have the original user manual with the stereo info attached including the security code card) and it's got AM. Still works fine. It is an Eurovox.

    I have a suspicion that our cars had the radio sourced locally and added at the dealership. The harness was there ready to plug in but the head unit itself looks like it was added with the relevant papers and security code when the cars arrived at the dealership. The result is that you might find a variety of radios were "original" for these cars. Just find something that fits the harness and go with that as long as it matches the car's eighties spirit.

    I have seen head units like mine sold on ebay here advertised as coming off a Camira or something like that. I would suspect these head units have been used in a number of cars of that era.

    Eurovox is an Australian company, stands for sound of the Kangaroo (Euro).

    Stands to reason with the wiring one finds behind them, patched in is an understatement. Very pedestrian fitting but it works.

    Looks like your in luck Vinny! Original radio, very cool.
    I agree on the wiring being a bit patchy as they did fit radios locally.

    Mine has the wiring you'd expect on the car loom, nothing unusual. What do you mean by patchy?

    a long screw terminal interface patching the stereo in looking like its out of the 70's, will try and get a picture.

    Unfortunately the official JRA Limited brochure for the S1 appears to have just reused the Euro/UK brochure content so any local fitment of radios will not be shown... although it looks the same... hard to tell.

    Looking at a Car Australia review of the S1 the radio looks to be the same as you have, but the picture is very small.

    The same unit was used in 505s from about 1985.

    Awesome! Stoked to know itís the original. Now, the other thing is to get this thing to turn on! I believe I have wired everything correctly, and the unitís illumination lights are on so itís getting power, but when I turn it on to put in the security code I donít get anything showing on the display like thereís supposed to.

    Is there another security override to reset the unit? The code sheet I have matches the unit serial and the manual doesnít mention it, but it seems like I canít even turn the thing on to Get far enough to enter the code....

    "To check if radio works there is a temporary test code '1111' or '111111' can be used for most of Eurovox Radio. This only lasts for approx 3 minutes."

    Unfortunately it isnt a Eurovox, but its a Clarion so that's no help – thanks anyway!

    The illumination is getting power from the accessory/ignition switch, would I be correct in assuming that if that is working, the radio should be turning on? Maybe there might be an issue with my constant power and thats why its not working...

    Sounds like time for a multimeter Vinny.
    And also check at the fuse box in case thereís something there.
