RR/GM5+ Pioneer 5100nex not working (with video)

Post by MNorby » Fri Jun 12, 2015 9:40 pm

Just installed the 5100nex into a 2008 GMC Sierra that does NOT have onstar, xm, bluetooth or bose but DOES have steering wheel controls. Flashed the RR and wired up. Updated the pioneer to latest firmware. Sometimes it will work fine and steering wheel controls work properly and screens are correct on unit but most of the time the steering wheel controls do not work and when I try to go to home screen or something it keeps bringing up generally bluetooth settings or my phone address book. The chimer speaker seems to work all the time though regardless. Here is a video showing what is going on.

Check the audio cable that runs from the RR to the radio; it should connect to aux on the pioneer. Make sure nothing is plugged into the W/R port on the pioneer, otherwise the radio and steering wheel controls will act strangely.
