Wondering if anyone has ever had this issue. Got a concealed display in December. It is a full-color display I ordered from someone (I won't post the link but he is very reputable and provided good customer service). Everything with the concealed display is hooked up fine, wires are in good shape, connections are clean and good.
When I get in my vehicle in the morning or after work, my main V1 unit comes on like nothing is connected to it. The concealed display remains black. Within 3-10 minutes of driving, the lights and such switch from my main V1 unit down to my concealed display, and my main unit goes dark. This is what should happen from when the vehicle is first started, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why this 3-10 minute delay happens. This happens very consistently - every time. The only exception is if the vehicle is shut off for 5 minutes or less before turning back on (stopping at a gas station for example.)
The concealed display functions perfectly, it just consistently takes a few minutes for the display to transfer from my main V1 unit down to the concealed display as it should. I have tried wiring the display with the short 3 inch cord, so there is no possibility of a wiring problem, with the same results.
I sent the display back to the guy I bought it from, who tested it in his vehicle for a week with no problems. Even so, he agreed to, and did, send me a new/different concealed display unit. I get the same results. So it MUST be something with my vehicle.
Last weird thing is that the mute button on the concealed display works immediately, even if the lights and such are still functioning up on my main V1 unit.
I know this sounds crazy - but it is true. Anybody have this happen or have any ideas?
Since I have ruled out bad wiring and a bad concealed display unit, the only thing I can think of is that something is wrong with my cigarette adapter plug.
