piece o' cake! - note on installation
on September 25, 2013
This was my second purchase from MicroBypass for my wifes Pioneer AVH-X8500BHS, and Im very happy. It works as described and now she can access features that were previously disabled, like the bluetooth phone functions and DVD playback for the kids. Installation was a snap. Heres what to do, and not to do from my experience:
1) Don't use tap connectors or other splice connectors because they dont pierce into the wires plastic jacket, twist the bare wires directly together, solder, or crimp the connections.
2) Connect the black wire from MicroBypass to the ground from radio and ground from vehicle harness.
3) Connect the blue wire from MicroBypass to the blue/white wire from Pioneer radio.
4) Connect the green wire from MicroBypass to the light green brake wire on the Pioneer radio. If it runs down to the vehicles actual parking brake, then disconnect it or it wont work.
And your done, its that easy! Thanks again!
