08 GMC with PIoneer avic 5201

Post by drbourassa » Sat Apr 14, 2018 4:36 pm

I installed the Pioneer Avic 5201 with the Maestro Rr flash for my vehicle, and I can get the radio, back up camera, DVD player to work just fine, but the steering wheel controls do not work. I have tried reflashing the unit a few times, not sure what else to do as I checked the wiring chart many times as well. Any ideas as to what I should check?

Do you have something plugged into the W/R on the back of the pioneer?

Does the light on the RR blink when you press a steering wheel button?

I did not, but was able to get that to work. Everything works fine except for the microphone when making calls through the unit. I can hear people through the speaker, but they cannot hear me. Do I have to install a separate mic, or is there something missing to get it to work with the oem one?

If you're paired to the Pioneer, you must use the Pioneer microphone (highly recommended if you're going to use carplay or android auto).

If you pair to Onstar Bluetooth, it will utilize the OEM microphone.
