Welcome to the site! I'm Dan, and I'd be happy to help.

This is a common issue on these Vector models. Have seen it dozens of times. There are 2 things you can do:

1. Send it to Bel. They'll charge about $70.

2. Disassemble the unit (usually 2 screws underneath... 1 is often under a sticker). Disconnect the wiring harness (usually an 8-pin clip... sometimes 2 of them) and then use a pencil eraser to clean the pins, connectors, etc. Then reassemble.

Either of those options should clear the service required message you're seeing. If I can do anything else, just ask....

Have opened both units & disassembled. There is no wiring harness ,the whole units are solid state.the only terminals visible are where the power cord plugs in& they are clean.when resembled & connected to power they both run through their start sequences & 2 -3 seconds later come up with the service required message.What can I do now?
Car Electronics Technician: Dan T., Master Technician replied 6 months ago

Strange. I've been inside the 995 and there is definitely a small harness/clip. Maybe there's a different version for Australia?? I'm not sure, so I'll opt out and send your question back to the expert board. If someone can help, they'll post here and you'll get an email.
