Sony XAV-AX5000 Head-unit (Volume shooting up when connected)

Post by foamless » Tue Jun 04, 2019 4:12 am

Hi, I recently purchased a Maestro SW for my 2017 Subaru Brz steering controls. I connected the module to my autoharnesshouse 7pin connector and the blue connector that came with the Maestro. When I plug the 3.5mm jack into the red port labeled "remote" behind my head unit, the volume just shoots up until max. I almost blew my eardrums and speakers because of this.

What should I look out for in order to fix this issue?

Thanks.

make sure the solid Red and solid Black wire on the SW is connected to 12v accessory and ground respectively. Also in the Sony radio there is a steering wheel control setting that gives you the option of Custom or Preset. Make sure it is set to Preset.
