    Removing pioneer...the keys are a pile of crap...

    Just attempted to remove my 8600mp to fit my autoleads steering control adapter...

    now am i being dense or something because its never been a problem removing headunits in the past...but this one is well and truly jammed in there!

    ...i've removed the outer gunmetal framing but then i can barely get the keys between the unit and the grey chasis thing, when i do...and try to shove them in, the keys just bend all over the place (these are the short keys with circular finger grips at the end)

    ...what am i doing wrong?!

    have you tried sliding in the keys as far as you can then pushing it out from the back?

    i was using the wrong keys

    now the problem is i can only find 1 of the right key...have looked high and low for the other one...

    is it possible to remove with just the 1 key??

    put one key in - lever that side out with a knife - leave a knife down that edge and prise the other side out - by jamming one side it wont slip back into the catch on the cage

    If you remove the glovebox you can get your hand behind the unit then use the key on one side and the then the other keeping pressure on it to the clip doesn't go back in

    i managed to get it out with one butter knife and a pioneer key...

    trust my luck...it doesnt work! i plugged the brown/black ISO block thingys from the autoleads adapter into the brown/black car thingys...also i plugged the main black block from the autoleads into the ISO adapter from the pioneer...and thirdly i plugged the jack from the autoleads into the pioneer

    but it doesn't work what could it be?

    Mine didn't work either, same headunit and adaptor

    Autoleads say Pioneer have changed the way they do the steering wheel controls but i'm sure someone else had one working

    Exactly what I had with mine on the coupe and it didn't work. Think what buttons that did work turned the volume down and that was it

    Pioneer do a adaptor for it but my next thing to try is the celcius range I think
