Parking Brake functions - 2018 F150 + RR + 1330NEX

Post by hkduder » Fri Aug 31, 2018 11:27 am

Hello Dara,

We just spoke over the phone but I figure posting this will help others as well.

As a refresher: I'm trying to get the brake functions to activate on the Pioneer 1330NEX.

I tried changing gears from P to N then back to P and it seems to work half way. Half way meaning the functions highlight momentary but does not stay activated long enough to do anything.

Looking forward to hearing what your firmware person has to say.

Thanks

So I'm doing a little more research and I find out that the RR's light green wire has (-) negative output while the Pioneer requires it to be wire to the power supply side ... I think that means positive. If so this may be the issue?

That's not correct; the pioneer actually needs to see multiple pulses of a (-) input from the parking brake to allow you into the settings menus.

ok. I'm reading that from the Pioneer installation manual that has it going to the power supply side, on off on.
Reading it doesn't mean I understand it :D

Do you have advice or a solution then?

Thanks

The engineer that codes it is still on vacation until tomorrow. I can ask him how he coded it when he returns.

I have sent a test firmware to your account. To flash it, hit 'flash your module', select the 'flash by user firmware' tab, and you should see a firmware there called "ADS-RR(SR)-FOR02B-DS (512) 1.4". Select it, proceed with your flash, and give it a try.

When you're in park or not moving, it should allow you into the menus.
