2015 Civic Si Kenwood DMX906S VSS Wire

Post by nicholai_l » Wed Jul 03, 2019 10:41 pm

Hello,

I am back after finally purchasing a Kenwood DMX906S with wireless carplay and lanewatch retention. THe problem is, whenever I try to use Wireless carplay the car gets angry and tells me I have to have a VSS connection to use it. I have tried multiple connections of the Pink VSS cable to the Pink Maestro cable, including: No Connection, Direct connection, and the supplied series diode in both forward and reverse biased config. It NEVER picks up the signal, which is strange.

Thanks for your help,

Nicholai

What radio trim did the car have originally- nav or no nav?

No Nav, as that is what I selected originally for my ILX radio. It worked with the alpine flawlessly

There is a test firmware sent to your account. Select 'flash by user firmware', and there will be a firmware in there called "ADS-RR(SR)-HO02-DS VSS Output v1 (512) 2.0". Select this flash, give it a try, and let us know if that works for you.

Thanks,

tried it, no dice. wireless carplay does not auto connect and when trying to select it manually the same error appears. I left the Pink VSS wire unconnected as directed by the Maestro installation booklet.

You DO need to hook up the VSS wire. It is not sent over data, so if you don't hook it up, the radio will not see a VSS signal.

I just connected and turned on the car, it shows the same error: “The speed sensor must be connected to use Apple Carplay wirelessly. Please verify the proper connections or plug in by USB to use Apple Carplay

EDIT: I drove around the block and it works now!!! thanks so much :)
