FJ Cruiser - Pioneer DMH1500NEX VOLUME

Post by jdelaney7 » Fri Sep 13, 2019 10:05 am

I just had a Pioneer DMH1500NEX installed in my 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser along with the Maestro Rr & T01.Everything is working great except for when I use Apple Carplay and the Sirius or iHeart Radio app, my steering wheel volume doesn’t work at all... Is there something I can do for this? Reset system? Update Firmware? Any help would be appreciated!! THANKS!

if you go back to regular FM radio does the volume controls start working again? Do all the steering wheel controls stop working?

Yes. The volume works with everything else including when I’m playing a playlist from my music through Carplay. Just not on iHeartRadio or the Sirius app from CarPlay.

in that case there might be a bug in the radio that is preventing the radio from adjusting volume. I would check to see if there is any update available for your radio on the pioneer website.

OK. I did check and there is a Firmware update. I will try that and hopefully it will fix the problem.
Thank you!

Only other thing to check, it's a long shot, but on the back of the radio, is there anything plugged into the W/R port? If so remove it and test again. If not then you might have a radio issue.

If your steering wheel controls work on other sources fine and all you are doing is just going into Carplay it must be something with the radio. I would recommend taking it back where you got it and replacing it.
