2005 Chrysler 300c - Pioneer MVH-1400NEX

Post by iCanuck » Thu May 10, 2018 10:15 pm

Just wondering how to fix a few things

After replacing my factory nav radio with a Pioneer MVH-1400, Maestro CH2, & Maestro RR I have "No CDs Loaded" displaying on my EVIC (Electronic Vehicle Info Center) in my cluster. Anyway to remove this? I see ppl mention an older firmware version which can fix the issue but I haven't come across anymore info.

Also when the car isn't running and I have the ignition key on, my Deck flashes "Function is unavailable because of Maestro is disconnected. Please check connection with Maestro." Is this normal? It makes it difficult to use the Deck without the car running.

I'm pretty confident my wiring and connections are properly connected.

See the quote and the thread below- the same answer applies to your vehicle.

Update: I just received confirmation from the engineer that there is no way to make the EVIC display blank. There is a list of pre-coded messages that can display on the EVIC, which is why we're stuck with "No CD loaded". I can talk you through flashing with analog firmware to get rid of that text, if you like.

Yes I read that post.

Will the older firmware effect anything else?

Can you please point me in the right direction to do this?

If you have a factory amplifier, you will lose the ability to fade. That's the only thing it would affect. If you would like to proceed, re-flash your RR as a pioneer radio, but do not pick your model. Pick AVH-X2800BS and that should give you analog firmware. Pay attention to the new install guide, as the wiring will have changed slightly.

Thanks for the info. However if I lose the fader and have to re-wire anything then I would prefer to stay with the current firmware.

Do you have any idea why I get the message in the picture below when my ignition is on but engine off and I'm trying to use the radio? It can be quite annoying... I have confirmed my wiring twice.

That doesn't make any sense at all. The maestro is clearly awake, because it is what tells the radio to turn on. I will ask the engineer if he has any thoughts, but I have never seen anything like this before.
