Steering wheel controls stop working after 5 min

Post by novaman64 » Wed Dec 27, 2017 11:13 am

Recently installed a Maestro RR and GM5+ harness with my Pioneer 1330NEX reciever. I was sure to update the NEX firmware to the latest version (8.26). Anyways, everything is wired up and works, start my truck (08 Silverado 3500 LTZ with factory bose), all is well, after driving 5-10 minutes the steering wheel controls will stop working, nothing on the steering wheel responds (volume, changing source, presets, ect). If I go through the menu's on the radio and reset the maestro it will start working again for another 5-10 minutes, or if I shut the truck off it will start working again for a short time once I re-start it. Any idea's? This is driving me nuts... Thanks.

It sounds like you have something plugged into the W/R port of the radio. There shouldn't be anything plugged in there, or the steering wheel controls may stop working.

I do, the cable from the Maestro RR that is a proprietary connector on the RR end and looks like a AUX connector on the other end is plugged into the W/R port on the stereo.

That'll do it. That should be plugged into AUX.
