Pioneer NEX Buttons Overriding Steering Wheel Controls

Post by PisgahSasquatch » Mon Dec 31, 2018 10:26 am

Setup:
2016 Subaru Impreza w/ 6.2" headunit w/ 6-speaker (no SatNav, no Starlink SOS, no CD changer, no Sub)
New headunit: Pioneer AVH-2440NEX (with most recent firmware)
Used Maestro RR and SU2 wiring harnesses and wired correctly (as far as I can tell from the various diagrams and instructions).

Everything appears to work exactly as planned. However, if at any point after turning on the car (either in ACC or ON) I press one of the radio's hard buttons, the steering wheel controls stop working until I turn the car off and on again. The use of on-screen soft buttons has zero change to steering wheel controls. The steering wheel controls appear to work perfectly otherwise and the RR unit seems to have flashed correctly - all steering wheel controls match the commands I selected.

Thoughts on what might be happening?

It would appear that you have something plugged into the input on the radio labeled "WR". If so, remove that and your steering wheel controls will function as intended.
