2012 RAM 1500 steering wheel controls

Post by theblackduck87 » Thu May 16, 2019 10:44 am

Not sure if anyone else has posted about this yet. I have a 2012 Ram using a JVC KW M750BT with a Maestro RR.
When trying to flash it My "exact" steering wheel is not listed. The first one listed is like mine but mine does not have the phone buttons. I used that one. Now the ONE feature I wanted to retain from factory is not there!!The center button on the app on the drivers side is listed as "next preset" however that option does not exist for flashing. :angry: What gives?
Also My gauges show up on the screen of my JVC but do not seem to function. Am I missing something?
Also, was climate control not a part of the vehicles original network because that doesn't work either although the app asked I f I wanted it.

The lack of preset up/down is a JVC thing; it has to do with how the radio was designed. You can change the 'seek mode' in the radio to preset, and it will go through presets when you hit seek.

What error message does the gauges screen show?

Climate control is not supported in this firmware because you didn't lose any climate control features by removing the oem radio.

I'm not seeing any error messages per say but maybe I misunderstood how that was supposed to work. Are they supposed to be "live" or "active"?
