Got a new head unit for my corsa. Wired it into the amp and the other two rectangle connecters.

Now, when i turn the lights on the facia lights up but it doesnt come to life. When i go to turn the engine on it comes to life for a second but when i let go of the key it cuts out again. I noticed if i turn the key a fraction forward while the cars running, as if im going to start the car it will come to life and work as normal. When i let go and the key goes back to resting on the catch it cuts out.

Wtf?

I had exactly the same problem in my old corsa, kept cutting out over slight bumps and vibrations, drove me mad! I think it was the ignition barrel, needed a new one, but as I wasn't keeping the car much longer I just got it hard wired into the ignition position (2nd click on the key) but that meant it wouldn't work on the 1st position.

So to answer your question, get an electrician or someone to have a look at your ignition barrel, first thing I would check :)
