MaestroRR Mini-USB Cable Unique?

Post by BADsDAD » Sun Jan 06, 2019 7:48 pm

Hi all,
I no longer have the mini-USB cable that came with my MUS-1 kit with MaestroRR.
I just upgraded my steering wheel in my Mustang and would like to re-program the Maestro to use the controls, but I have tried several mini-USB cables and none of them seem to work.
Is there something unique about the cable that comes with the MaestroRR?
If so, where can I order one?
If not, is it because all I have is Win10 (64bit) IE versions to run the activeX updater on?

I suspect the cable is unique as when I plug in the unit, nothing at all happens in Windows Device Manager or otherwise to indicate that any device is recognized by the OS.

Thanks!!

The cable is not special; it is a standard mini usb. The RR will not be able to detect on the computer if it still has power from the car. To get it to detect, you will either need to disconnect the RR from the t-harness, pull the main radio fuse, or disconnect the car's battery.

Just wanted to report back and say that this worked just fine and to say thanks! I still have one outstanding issue from another older thread, but I'll report back on that one there.
