2014 Mustang, Gauge info only

Post by paul kiczuk » Fri Jun 29, 2018 5:05 pm

I have a customer who had purchased a metra kit for her 2014 mustang (base/non-nav) that controls all the steering wheel controls and everything else, but also wants her gauges to be displayed through the head unit (Kenwood DDX9703S). I flashed the Maestro RR as if replacing the radio, but unchecked the SWC and other features that her kit already covers.
I was hoping that it would be as simple as connecting Can HI & Low at the OBD, and the data link cable and stereo jack into the back of her radio, it even seemed to program, but when I get to the next step of turning the car on for it to register the vin, it stays on the screen. I followed the instructions of acc-off-acc-off-on as well, but it won't get past that screen. Do I still need to cut the SWI2 wire for this to work? And would that potentially disable steering wheel controls from her dash kit?
Thanks in advance

Hey Paul-
how is it going? when flashing the RR we need to flash it as a 10 Toyota Landcruiser. When you are flashing it as a Mustang it is looking for all the connections to be made so that it can communicate with all databus protocols. We you are wiring it up you are just going to connect the grey/red to ACC 12v, yellow to Constant 12V, Black to Ground and you CANs to the obd2. they just plug in your 4pin data serial cable to the maestro and the RR.
