Gah, don't you love it my server seemingly became infected with the "Trojan:Win32/Tiggre!rfn" last night at 23:00 so my various web sites and the high res. images are currently unavailable basically anything ???.g8dhe.net or ???.g8dhe.com including the Bongo Wiring Manuals, looks like it will be a rebuild of the OS so the system maybe down for a while. Still 9 years service with only a couple of hardware faults can't be too bad!

Yer at the moment the data is all "safe" and backed up other than my 120,000 images! Its merely the Operating System that appears to have been junked, but even that is backed up, so once I can get a working system back up I can restore OK, its just the normal little Windows gotcha's getting in the way!

Brilliant that you're so methodical and thorough, jolly well done, Geoff. =D>

Hi, just wondering if anyone can help with this.
Just bought a brand new radio to replace the original Japanese one, and an ISO to DIN converter (after checking that it was the correct one for my 2002 Bongo)
Having connected everything up, the radio does not work (does not even light up).
I have compared the wiring on my converter to photos of other ones on line and the wiring seems to be correct, so :
1. Either the radio is duff, (which is fairly unlikely as it is brand new) unfortunately I have no way of checking if the radio itself is ok
2. The adapter is the wrong one, even though it is stated as for a 2002 model
3. The wiring to the ISO connector on the Bongo is wrong, or different to what it should be
There is 12v at the live battery pin and the 12v accessory pin and the ground pin is connected correctly to ground, but I am unable to identify what the other wires on the ISO connector are in case any of them is at fault
Does anyone have a radio wiring diagram, or know from experience what each wire does on the standard 2002 Bongo ISO connector?
Any help would be appreciated.
Many thanks
Roy

The diagrams show the pins both in terms of the original Mazda pins (loom) and ISO pinout, not quite sure where your getting DIN from however as you need a Mazda to ISO adaptor - DIN "Deutsches Institut für Normung" is just the German Standards bureau and normally applies to the size of the case 1 or 2 DIN


As to what each ISO pin does then see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connectors_for_car_audio

I don't know anything about audio systems, but I do have access to the Bongo archives. Back in 2010 it was reported that many firms (on eBay and elsewhere) stipulated that a PC2-10-4 "Mazda ISO adapter" would fit later Bongos, but in fact this is incorrect. The one that fits is called a "Mazda Harness Adapter" PC2-78-4. So I'd check to see which adapter you have been supplied with.

Same as ever but Chrome are dissuading people from using Flash by disabling it, you need to Right click the Warning message on the URL and then Allow Flash, then reload and it will remain enabled until Chrome is closed;

As far as I am aware other Browsers have not taken this approach ..... so FireFox etc. still work normally.

My problem is the update to the Zoomify package to use CSS5 (to do away with Flash) doesn't use the same files or have the same features as the original package, which means I have to recode each and every page across all the manuals, which is not the most enticing activity at present :-(
