I have a Pioneer main unit and has a hard wiring remote input. Installed different resistors on the buttons in the steering wheel and connected them with the non used wire in the clock spring.


Hi
Could we have some more details? Which Pioneer head unit? When you say "Hard-wired remote input" do you mean the small jack input? Almost like a headphone socket?
What resistors did you use and why? How did you calculate the resistance requirement?

If you could provide some step-by-step instructions of what you did and how you did it, I know there would be a lot of interested people on this site that would appreciate it! Thumb

It's indeed the small jack connector on the back of the head unit. My head unit is the avic-f980bt but i believe most pioneers are equipped with it. If you google ''pioneer hardwire remote'' you can find the resistors you need for the specific function and how to connect them with the jack connector. I couldn't believe it was so easy to get four functions with just one wire!

Being handy with this kind of upgrades i'm an idiot when using a computer. I simply can't upload pics because of the size of the pictures....

Sorry for the delay, I didn't see you had replied!

Ok, so this is big news!
So it would make sense to use these function in the unused ex-tip switches:
8,2K = tune up/next track
12K = tune down/previous track
15K = volume up +
22K = volume down -

So if I'm getting this right..
one wire - connect all the switch poles together in series with the resistor at the switch?

Do you think you could do a wiring diagram for how to connect up the wires in a Porsche? If you can, I'm going to try this!!

I’ve just stumbled across this and it seems like a fantastic mod! Thank you for sharing Ricola.

Out of interest, has anybody tried the paddle mod combined with a momo prototipo (or similar) steering wheel? If so, which paddles were used?
