Fit a neon under the parcel tray and take a snap of the satin outlined setup, then please remove it as it can melt, and damage the amps also catch fire and cause heavy damage to the vehicle and people inside.

Did you bolt the amps on the back of the seat or did you use a MDF board?

A Swift came to us for Audio Upgrades, it had a Sony VCD Player installed, best part is this car has opted for Extended warranty on electricals,
We insisted on using a wiring harness but after removing the old head see that there is no Maruti socket itself, it was cut off and replaced with the pioneer one,
BRILLIANT!

Moral of the story : Na Rahega baas , na bajegi baansuri.

Install was done previously in Ludhiana or something.

I love the ZXi model a lot. Doing that to it is pure criminal in my books :-(

Ludhiana. Eh? Car has travelled a long way then. By any chance any info on where the install took place?

Fortunately, ECU manufacturers (Bosch, Siemens, Denso, Hitachi et al) ensure that ECU will work despite the 'best' efforts of installers from Ludhiana, or for that matter any Indian town, as long as they don't go near the ECU!

They conduct a design-phase study called FMEA (Failure Mode Effect Analysis) - where different people ask a lot of stupid questions, like "what happens if an Indian installer chops out the original harness connector and twists wires to another after-market connector?" - only to predict such situations and take appropriate measures for the ECU not to be affected.

So, @rider60, you need not go ballistic. As long as there is no smoke coming out of the engine compartment or dashboard, you will be able to drive your car. If there is, may God be with you. If not, maujan hi maujan!

DerAlte Phaji you forget to ask Failure effect, Potential Causes, Occurrence, Current Control, Detection, Action Plan, Responsibility.

A question from the ignorant!
How does connect a pioneer HU onto a MGA socket?

Ask around for an adapter - basically a connector that mates with the harness connector on one side, another that goes into the rear of the Pio HU, connected appropriately with wires. Ask the Autocop guys where you can get one.

Oh..So there is such a thing in existence. I got my install done at the dealer and I am pretty sure such a thing was not used.
