5M extension cable run from rear to front (loads of fun that in a converible - not!), with the cabling plugged into the connection that was in the BG54 Radio unit. Dynavin unit connected to 5M cable at front of the vehicle.... and no power. Nothing! I checked the fuses and they are all fine (including the one on the Dynavin itself).

To make it a wee bit more confusing the wiring on the back of the Android unit is completely different from all of the other models!

Any ideas?
Looks like you have a V6 Dynavin unit but maybe a V5 Fakra harness. The V6 Fakra harness has the steering wheel control box up front on the headunit side of the harness; not the trunk side.
