    Red face steering wheel radio controls

    Hello just a quick question the raido controls on the steering wheel are they supposed to light up in the dark when the lights are on?

    Ok well i'd say that the blue wires aren't plugged together on the pioneer wiring harness.

    Yeah removing the radio is the only option really to see if they are plugged in

    This is how it is, when the radio or CD is on the date goes, switch it off and the date comes back

    If you want the date on all the time cut a red/white wire at the display
