    as above, got power on first click but only for 5 seconds, then dies, tried it with 3 headunits and all do the same, what could this be?

    try the little black earth wire behind the dash, you'll need to pull the clocks out to see it, will be to your left looking towards the bonnet.

    check the earths if all ok check you've got power to it, usually a red wire(powered up when ignition turned on) and a yellow i think (memory/perminant live) if you check all that you'll find a problem as to unlikely to be an actual head unit fault on every one you've tryed. hope that helps bud
