2012 Mustang/MUS1/Maestro-Climate control slider

Post by BADsDAD » Wed Mar 21, 2018 9:00 pm

Hi,
I have a 2012 mustang with the MUS1 and MaestroRR connected to a Kenwood DNN992 head unit.
All seems ok except that on the climate control screen, the temperature slider always snaps back to full cold position on the display. It does actually shift over to heat and heat does work, but the slider will show full cold.
For example, if I have it on the full left cold position and I begin pushing the arrow to move it toward hot, it will move a few clicks toward the right but snap back to far left cold. The blend door, however, is in the correct position and not in full cold. So it seems to be just an issue with displaying the blend door actual position and not that it can't control it correctly. I hope this makes sense.

If the vehicle is doing what it should, that means that the Maestro is doing its job. Since it's just the display that isn't right, I would lean toward that being a bug with the Kenwood software/user interface.

Just bringing this back up to say that you are quite likely correct and to say that even after an update to the latest firmware for the MaestroRR and to the Kenwood DNN992, I still have the same issue with the temp slider showing full cold when not be adjusted.

BTW, my dash buttons on the MUS1 kit are wearing and the black is coming off where I can begin to see the translucent white plastic through the dye. Are there replacements available?

If you let me know which buttons you need, I should be able to find some in my extra parts and ship them to you.

Thanks, that would be awesome! I need the Fan Up and Down buttons if you happen to have any handy.

In order to use the MUS1 kit you will need to have a Maestro compatible radio. the other option is to use a different companies dash kit that has the a/c controls on it with your radio.
