  • Remote not working

    Hi all a few days ago I finally completed my stereo upgrade from a r400 colour to a kenwood 7018 dabs, installed harnesses etc wired it all up after a severer amount of swearing, anyways all is fully functional so happy days on that one, but upon trying the steering remote all I get is the volume bar on my central display, there’s no functionality at all from my remote but yet everything is wired up correctly, what am I missing, the harness and can bus kit I’ve used is the ro5 gm51 and the driver aid chime unit for my sensors is a bit weak sounding even though it’s at full volume thanks all

    Did the remote come with the stereo?
    If so it must be something to do with the remote which is not standard fitment, so best to go back to the manufacturer .
    Just make sure you have batteries in the remote.

        There was a thread on here somewhere, there was an extra bit of loom to connect to the steering wheel controls but the member found that it was causing battery drain. If I remember correctly.

            If you put "steering wheel controls" into the search function there's a few threads and some results by the look of it.

                I do vaguely remember something about battery drain to be honest, I think it may have possibly mentioned been on one of my earlier posts too

                  The battery drain was when straight swap android units were fitted from china (or Icebox in Liverpool who were shipping them over). I shouldn't expect your set up to cause the same issue.

                      Did u hook it up to the green and black wire on the remote stalk and how did u do it? I’ve been told it needs to be soldered together but I can’t get a soldering iron outside to it

                        It cost me a lot more to get it sorted though. And took 5 years to pay for it.

                          It was over 5 years ago on my previous Insignia, I can't really remember. You just plugged the supplied cable into the steering wheel wiring and fed part down to the rest of the wiring behind the cubby to the right of the steering wheel near the drivers knee.
