rear proximity alerts on a 2016 Dodge Challenger

Post by Tom Anderson » Sat Oct 27, 2018 9:42 am

Hello I have recently installed a DSR1 in my 16 Hellcat Challenger (with a '17 head unit) and my rear proximity alerts don't work. I'm currently running a set of Focal 165W-RC's in the front through a JL RD400/4 and NOTHING in the rear. Do I have to run a rear amp and speakers to get my alerts back or is there an easier way to do it?

Thanks!

Hi Tom,
the rear alerts do come out the rear outputs so yes, you will need to connect a small amp/speakers and run it to the rear outputs of the DSR1. that's just how Dodge chooses to alert the driver if the obstruction is in the front or the rear of the vehicle.

Bill, I have a 17 head unit in my 16. Do I need to run the resistosr on the rear speakers as well?

thx

There are no "rear speaker" outputs from the car, but you should put the resistors on all the different colored audio outputs. The others are for the different types of prompts and chimes from the stock headunit.

how can there be no rear speaker outputs? There are rear speakers from the factory with the Harmon option. Dara told my installer last Friday that the proximity chimes came out of the rear speakers. There are speakers in the rear seat side panels, and the rear package tray. I just ordered a new amp and rear speakers to make this work, I hope it does...

There are no rear speakers that go from the radio to the amplifier. There are only 2, non fading audio channels. The other channels in the AR harness are for different prompt and chime related audio signals. All the fading is done internally in the factory amplifier, which is what the AR/DSR1 units do thru data communication. The resistors are supposed to be placed in the 2 pin inputs to the DSR1, not the outputs that go to the speakers. Yes, there are rear speakers in the vehicle. No, there are not rear inputs to the DSR1.

so, let me re-ask my original question. How do I get the proximity warning chime to work in this 2016 Challenger?

In order to get prox sensor chimes you are going to have to run a seperate amplifier and speakers. use channels 3 and 4 from the DSR1 set to rear output and this will give you your chimes

after installing an amp and speakers for the rear channels, I now have the audio alerts as well as rear fill from the speakers. Adjusting the volume of the proximity alerts was easy: with the car in reverse with the alert active, choose the AUX in on the system and rotate the volume knob to the desired level for the alert. As a side note, I used channels 5&6 for the rear, not 3&4 as Justin suggested as they were being used for the front separates. Thanks for the info.
