I posted the same one in PW, but here it is again

This weekend finally I did it
I got some problems but it's all good now, since I never touch wires behind the HU before it took me Saturday and Sunday to do it, but I took my time and installed the HU, XM adapter, Bluetooth, some PAC Audio adapters to retain the steering wheel control.

Special thanks to Quality_Sound and brauhaus313 with their support back and forth by PM    , without you guys I may be already fried that thing .

Here are some shots:






"The extra cost" of my install :



Yes I drilled it and forced it out, since I couldn't do it using the hanger folder, took it to the stealership and they still cannot remove it, so got to do what I got to do to keep me going!

Looks good. I put a single din Kenwood head unit in my car, but the double din looks a lot better.

would you mind giving part numbers for everything.

I have been wanting to do this for awhile, but was unsure about the steering wheel controls (and I need some $$ first)

it looks awesome BTW.   did you keep the stock speakers ect.   how does it sound?

Hi, I think its a lot of fun and adds to the car. My best buy had to have the snap on truck drop off the tool to get the old radio out. Do you think the night driving display is a little to bright? I do, so I use the hide mode when driving to work in the dark, plus if a favorite pops up it is more noticeable. I dont have the wheel controls, just the remote but that fits in pretty good for the passanger who might be laying back. Any problem with the Fm signal strengh ? I added the power lead and it sounds good all over the dial now.

Thanks, yes all buttons on the steering wheel work because of the PAC adapters (SWI-CAN and SWI-PS)

Mine is self dim when I turn on the switch lights (city or headlights), so it's kinda cool I think.
No FM signal problem at all

Yes I keep OEM speakers and they sound MUCH better after I installed it.

Here's what you need:

Must buy:

-Pioneer AVIC-D3
-Pioneer ADT-VA133 (DoubleDin bracket kit)
-PAC C2R-VW adapter (to connect the Pioneer to the OEM socket without having to slice OEM wires makes installation much faster)
-Metra 40-EU55 antenna adapter


Optional:

-PAC SWI-CAN & PAC SWI-PS adapters (you need both of these if you want to retain steering wheel controls)
-Pioneer CD-I200 (iPod adapter)
-Pioneer CD-BTB200 (Bluetooth adapter)
-Pioneer GEX-P920XM (XM adapter-for Sirius is different, please check Pioneer website for the part#)
-Pioneer CD-R55 (remote control)
-Pioneer ND-BC2 or ND-BC20PA (rear view camera)

Thanks, but in order to do that, I need to buy 2 pieces of PAC adapters:
PAC SWI-CAN(around $50) & PAC SWI-PS (around $50). Some people they don't care about the steering wheel buttons, but I do

I just pieced the system together including the steering wheel controls, the backup camera, bluetooth, and ipod cable

the avic-d3x includes the avic-d3 the bluetooth, ipod cable and remote for cheaper. I also bought a "bypass" basically the nicer looking wiring harness to be able to play with the gps and watch movies while driving.

With some good deals I got everything for under 1k.

everything is in the mail and I am excited to get it.

I also needed an ipod, so I got a 5G 80gig refurbished from apple.com for $190 with a 1 year warranty.

Cool, are you gonna install it by yourself too?


Posted By: jeffsu350
Date Posted: 11-Mar-2008 at 21:42
I plan on installing it myself as well.

I installed my current bluetooth and that had no wiring harnesses initially so I had to figure a lot out on my own. Eventually I had an electrical problem (not related to my install but the dealer wanted it to be) and when I went to reinstall I opted to get a wiring harness.

the backup camera is the only thing that scares me, I am not sure how I will run the wire exactly and I am not sure how to mount/get the wire through the trunk.

I guess the steering wheel controls I am not 100% on, I am hoping there will be some installation instructions with the package, otherwise I will be looking online.

Did you install this by yourself?

I will try to take pics of the install and then I will be selling my current bluetooth and phatbox, so get excited for that if anyone wants them.



Posted By: t0kie
Date Posted: 12-Mar-2008 at 12:06
Yes, I did install it by myself. The steering wheel adapters need to be programed to make it work properly, and there is instruction manual that comes with it, just press and releasing button thing, you'll get it.
About the camera, I don't know because I'm not interested on that so I did not get it. Did you get XM/Sirius adapter too? I got XM and I love it.


Posted By: jeffsu350
Date Posted: 12-Mar-2008 at 17:08
The camera wire into the car is going to be the difficult part, I don't want to be able to see the wire, that looks shoddy.

I did not get xm/sirius, I don't use them, and I think the ipod will be enough and the movies of course

Just follow a paper manual that came with the PAC C2R-VW, be careful because some wires are not color to color match, like the speed sensor wire IIRC, just follow the manual and don't worry if some of the colors don't match. Here the manual that I'm talking about:

I am having trouble with step 1. I have that manual.

I understand that there are positive and negative wires, but they are bare wires. The instructions say to connect them to the after market radios front and rear speaker wires, but the wires out of the HU have only left and rights, no positive and negative (they are stereo connectors). I am not sure how I am suppose to connect these wires.

Do I cut , or splice into the HU wiring?

Thanks again, I am thinking my question is dumb, and I am missing something huge.

Thanks again.

Jeff, here are some pictures that I took before put everything in, hope it helps, just ignore the SWI-CAN and SWI-PS if you didn't get them.

I got it completely now. I got a little freaked out by all the wires and was fixating on the white connector that has the stereo front out and rear out.

Thank you very much for all your help.

If I have not annoyed you yet I have a couple other basic questions.

Can you point me to the vehicle speed and gear select wires.

I am assuming the antenna control wire should be ignored. I also have no idea what the ILL wire is.

Thanks again for all of your help... I feel dumber.

The speed sensor wire is the pink color (from the Pioneer) and you have to connect it to red with white color (on the PAC C2R-VW).

I am assuming the antenna control wire should be ignored. I also have no idea what the ILL wire is.

The ILL wire is for illumination and the color is kinda orange, both are the same color on this one, from the Pioneer connects it to the orange wire on PAC C2R-VW.

The antenna control wire from the Pioneer connects to 1 wire from the Metra 40-EU55 antenna adapter (sometimes it's blue and sometimes it's red like mine in the picture, but it's only 1 wire so you can't be wrong), this is for the FM and AM reception.

Hey don't worry about it, ask me more if you have more questions, I'll be happy to help if I could.

thanks for all your help.

so I do not need to connect those wires to the vehicle. I was assuming that the monsoon hu did not have a speed sensing wire.

i have to look at my installation manuals again I think.

I am going to try to do this next week.. I'm excited.

The speed sensor wire for the Pioneer is to be used on the NAVI, like for calculating the driving time based on your vehicle speed, etc.

Vincere:

I was wondering after you switched to Kenwood, were you able to still see the radio information on the display in the instrumentation cluster?

I would like to change out the factory radio in my 2003 W8 Wagon (6MT, Blue Spirit Pearl / Gray), but would like to know if I would lose that function if I did.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

THat's why you need the PAC SWI-CAN and PAC SWI-PS to retain the steering wheel control.

I am installing this thing as we speak. I have two radio antenna wires going into my monsoon HU and there is only one end to the radio antenna connector piece that I bought. Do I only get AM or FM?

thanks for the help.

so I hooked everything up and the fan on the back of the HU spins, but it doesn't spin constantly, it kinda turns on and off at different time intervals. The HU won't turn on and the SWI's LED won't turn on.

I guess I have to check and recheck every wire again.

Try to disconnect and reconnect all the PAC adapters, make sure they snap all the way in.

I changed the PAC SWI-CAN to setting 3 and it turned right on. I thought it was suppose to be at setting 2?

Either way, the unit works great but the swi-ps still does not turn on. Is there something I am missing. All that one needed was the connection from the swi-can and then to go into the HU.

Since I have limited time after work I didn't get to finish the install. I am routing the mic into the sunroof control area (where stock would go), putting the ipod in the glove box and the gps antenna on the rear sill, and then I have to mount the backup camera.

I ran out of light in the middle of the ipod install.

Let me know what setting your swi-can is on, maybe I am still not right there.

* I just tried setting 4 -- I found on the newer sheet online that it was suppose to be 4, but that didn't fix anything

Jeff


Posted By: t0kie

For the PAC setting, PAC SWI-CAN should be switched to position #4,
but I don't remember exactly what's the step by step, I only remember it took me about 20 minutes (back and forth) to have the correct setting and make the steering wheel buttons worked, because lots of push and hold and release steps that in some point confused me.

By the way, do you have all the manuals:

PAC SWI-CAN:

http://www.pac-audio.com/instructions/swi-can%20app%20guide.pdf
http://www.pac-audio.com/instructions/swi-can.pdf

Step by step for PAC SWI-PS:

http://www.pac-audio.com/instructions/SWI-PS.pdf

Also, if you have any questions during working hours, you can call them & they will assist you with the details: (714)835-3022 (They are in the West Coast).

My GPS and XM antenna I put them under the front dash behind the passenger airbag, exactly on the metal frame so the magnets stick on it perfectly and all signals are good. The iPod adapter is inside the glove box too and little microphone is on the 6th blank switch under the passenger heater seat switch.(No backup camera for me since I don't care for that stuff).


Posted By: jeffsu350
Date Posted: 01-Apr-2008 at 22:08
I guess everything just needed to be unpluged and then the LED went on fine.   I have installed and ran all the wires except the backup camera. I think that is more of a sunday job than after work before the sun goes down.


The only thing left to do is get the thing into the dash, there are so many wires I am having trouble fitting them all in. It was getting dark and starting to rain and I didn't want to rush it and mess something up, so it will sit till tomorrow. I took a bunch of pics, but lost the wire to my camera. I will put them up eventually.


Posted By: t0kie
Date Posted: 02-Apr-2008 at 12:39
Just take your time to tuck in the wires behind the HU, and make sure you have space on the back of the Pioneer's cooling fan, and as far of PAC adapters, you have to put them on the passenger side of the center trim frame, not on the back of the HU because if you do that then for sure the HU won't go in all the way.
Let me know & yeah post some pictures.

Jeff, how's the install?

-------------


Posted By: jeffsu350
Date Posted: 04-Apr-2008 at 01:09
I didn't have time to put all the wires behind the dash, but I did get the HU in enough to go for a drive.

the unit sounds amazing, I have a 500 watt monoblock JL amp with a 12" eclipse sub and it sounds amazing even with the stock speakers.

At the top end the sub is hitting really nicely and the speakers are distorted. Not that I would want to play my music that loud, but the stock speakers have to go when I get some more money.

The bluetooth is really nice, but I had to send names over one at a time, it wouldn't take a bulk send from my LG chocolate.

The ipod controls are amazing, my only complaint is that it scrolls very slow, playlists are much better for this setup.

I also had trouble with the bypass that I tried. The unit says that the e-brake cable is not attached properly and it doesn't let me use the navi features when moving, which I was trying to avoid.

I will try to get the backup camera in and then fit all the wires into the dash.


Posted By: t0kie
Date Posted: 04-Apr-2008 at 13:04
Bypass is very easy, Parking Brake wire (the green one) needs to be grounded too, here is the step by step with pictures:

http://www.avic411.com/D3Bypass/album0.html

or

http://www.avic411.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7998

As far as bluetooth, yes we have to transfer it one by one ( I know, it took me forever too when I did it).

Let me know how it goes.

avic411 is a great place to get info for this, but they are not all that friendly.

I tried the bypass from that site, I'm assuming some wire was not fully connected or I did something stupid. I just have to recheck everything

Damn you people! Reading this thread made me go and buy this setup with the money I was going to spend on coilovers!

I'll still do the coilovers I think but this is too awesome to pass up. Going to try to install next week - let you know if I have any probs. One quick question - can I wire for the backup camera without actually buying the backup camera kit? I'm thinking this is something I might want to add in the future, but don't want to have to pull the whole thing out again when I do it.

Thanks! Kind of! Lol.

Hi Corwin,

I think you still have to access the back of the head unit, IIRC. I don't have a backup camera because I don't really want it, but evryone has their own. Go for it, you'll like this one.

you can pull the HU to install the wire later. My backup camera came connected to the wire, meaning you would need the camera to wire the camera.

Its not hard to pull the HU and add the camera later though

In your opinion was the backup camera worth it? Kind of a spendy addition and I can't decide...


Posted By: jeffsu350
Date Posted: 18-Apr-2008 at 18:15
actually I have been really swamped with work and have not finished it.

The mic wire is kinda hanging from the head liner and the HU is still 1/2 in the dash.

My pictures are on a friends camera and I haven't gotten them off yet.

I also have not attempted the backup camera, so I do not know what it will look like when I'm done.

I love the HU. My only complaint is the scrolling when using the IPOD, you get the ipod controls, and only the ipod controls, so no searching. This would be fine if you could scroll like the wheel does, but you cannot, you have to go "page" by "page" which takes some time. I guess I would like if I could still listen to my ipod when accessing the bluetooth menu, however, this is more of a nit-picky thing than a problem

I love it!

Where have I been? This is great! I was just about to install a Motorola Bluetooth kit in the car but I'm now having second thoughts after seeing this.

A couple of questions for you all regarding the mic and GPS antenna. Has anyone looked into tapping into Onstar mic and antenna? I'm thinking it would be a bit cleaner look if you could use what is already there, especially the antenna. Any thoughts or comments on that?

I don't know about tapping the existing ones, but I put my gps antenna on the back sill behind the seats so you cannot see it unless you look for it and it does not scratch the paint or anything like that.

I also put the mic in the stock location for mics, near the sunroof control

Can you post a pic of the FIS with navi info? I'm curious to see if it is any different than what is displayed by the OEM navi.


Sure, but right now I'm still on vacation & will be back next week.


Shame, shame! You should be enjoying your vacation and looking at web pages!

Does your OnStar still work? I've never used mine but I thought GM had switched to a new system and the units in our cars would no longer work.

Yes it works, I'm waiting on the keys to get the factory radio out. I hope I can still keep onstar whenever I upgrade. I remember when I had the accident I didn't press anything and it came right on by itself. Is a nice feature to have just in case the accident is letal.

Well as far as I know the onstar has a plug prefitted to the factory radio, that the new HU doesn't have. For now no onstar unless there is a setup for it, that I don't know about. NO am either lol Who needs am now days. Pics coming soon.
