Sony CDX-G1151U Installation on Proton Saga BLM

This morning, Nic dropped by to upgrade his Proton Saga BLM’s player to the Sony CDX-G1151U, which plays music from CDs and USB drives.

Here are some of the installation photos.

Here’s the original look of the stock head unit, a Clarion.
Sony CDX-G1151U Installation

You need a bit of force to open up the dash panel, but just enough.

The stock Clarion unit is removed from the dash panel.

Adjustments need to be made to ensure the face plate is sitting just right on the dash panel.

With the correct wiring harness, no existing vehicle wiring need to be cut or spliced.

The new Sony unit looks much better than the stock one and definitely plays better.

Kenwood KMM-BT302 on a Proton Waja

Over the weekend, we had the chance to work on Ned’s Proton Waja. The unit installed is the Kenwood KMM-BT302, a CD-less single DIN that comes with Bluetooth functionality.

Here are some visuals from the installation just to give you an idea how it went. The installation took about 25 minutes.

Here’s getting wiring ready. No vehicle wirings nor socket is cut during the installation.




Removing the stock Clarion unit from the dash panel requires experience and a high degree of caution because any unnecessary force would break the clips that is holding everything together. Cars that has been under the sun for quite some time are especially prone to damage as the plastic are worn out under pro-longed extreme temperature.



Electrical tapes are wrapped around the wires to keep things tidy and avoid any tangling with existing wirings inside the dash panel.

The Kenwood KMM-BT302 comes with a remote microphone for hands-free Bluetooth connectivity with your mobile phones, up to 2 connection simultaneously. Usually, the top corner is the best place to position the microphone. Unfortunately, the KMM-BT302 does not come with karaoke feature.

Cable ties are used extensively during installation to ensure the wiring fits nicely in place.

More cable ties to keep everything tidy.

Quality heat-resistant foams are used to wrap around the wires to avoid the sockets and adapters from vibrating against the dashboard panels and steel frames within the dashboard.

Plugging in the antenna sockets and the wiring harness to the KMM-BT302.

And, there you go, the KMM-BT302 looking good in its new home.

in one. For this reason Ultra Deep Shine should not be followed by
Extra Gloss Protection or High Definition Wax.

Pro Tip: Do not allow the product to dry onto the paintwork for a long

Car Battery Chargers. Do You Need Them?

No. In general, most of us who drive a single daily driver will never need them. When our batteries go dead. We change them. That’s it. However, this may not ring true for some. So who might need it you say?

You would need it if you:

  • Own an expensive car that uses expensive batteries. Batteries cost a bomb and we know you have the money. So why not buy a charger instead and keep your car battery going for longer? Be a smart consumer and donate the savings to a good cause 🙂Oh, and bikes too.
  • Have too many cars to drive daily.  Ok, so you’re a car guy and you have been lucky to own a whole bunch of cars, bikes boats and stuff. We all know that you need to start your car every now and then to keep the battery from draining and going flat. So battery chargers make sense in this case. If it’s good enough for ultimate car guy Jay Leno, I think it should be good enough for all of us.
  • Own an RV, caravan, bikes or boats which you use every once in a while. A battery charger would be useful to keep them batteries healthy and ready for your next adventure.
  • Are away a lot. Mr. Worldwide, always needed all around the world.  Perhaps you’re a celebrity who needs to be away a lot. Or maybe you’re an international spy on a mission. Whatever the case may be, having a battery charger will make sure that your baby is waiting and roaring when you get back.
  • Own a work shop. It would benefit you a great deal if you had one of these as you could easily charge up flat batteries your customers bring in.
  • Thrifty. Yeah, you heard me right.  Even the average joe would benefit from a good battery charger as it would make your battery last longer, so you change it less often and save money in the long run. What more if you have more than one car in the family.

So, at this point, you might be saying, what the heck are car battery chargers? I’ve never seen one before. Is there such a thing. Well. There is and here is how they look. At least this CTEK one.


So, how does it work?

Ok, I can’t say all chargers are equal. For the sake of keeping things simple, let’s just stick to CTEK chargers, which is among the better chargers, if not the best. In general, you will need to connect the charger to your battery terminals, then plug in the other end to a wall socket. It will draw power through to the batteries and charge it. But the CTEK chargers do more than just charge. It also conditions and maintains the batteries so they last longer. Furthermore, there are many features that make charging as simple as plugging it in, and leaving it. You do not have to worry about overcharging or heating up.

Here’s Leno again

We recommend CTEK Battery Chargers. They make a wide range of chargers to suit every need. From 6V to 12V and even 24V application. Compact models. Larger full feature heavy duty models. Fast charging models. Waterproof models and so on.

We hope you find a CTEK that suits you and if you are overwhelmed and need assistance, don’t hesitate to write in to us in the comments section below.
