    Dash USB Not working (aftermarket H/U)

    Just plugged my phone into the dash usb socket to charge it and it’s not working. The van has a Kenwood DNX516 stereo with 2 USB leads in the glovebox, so I assume that the dash usb doesn’t work due to the aftermarket unit? Will something like this reinstate it? Thanks
