Question about Pioneer DEH-1700 CD Player

1 Answer

My radio's dead

I've had the DEH-1700 for a while now. However, yesterday my battery was dead and had to jump start the car using start cables. Since then the radio won't work at all. I'm not sure if the problem is connected to the battery being dead. I have checked the fuse and this is still OK. I would like to take the radio out to check it but don't have the extraction keys (I bought the car second-hand and they didn't come with it). Any simple solutions to removing the radio without the keys and what problems should I check for once removed?

Thanks in advance,

Sorry it took so long to get back on this. I just moved from Detroit to San Antonio and am still getting sorted out.

You can use any long slim metal to get the radio out. Something like a couple of butter knives are about the right size. You push one in on each side of the radio between the radio and the sleeve that holds the radio. Push them in as far as they will go near the middle part of the radio. Once they are all the way in they should release the catches that hold the radio in place, then just pull the radio out. The radio may also have a fuse right at the connector for the plug. It will be a plastic blade fuse normally a red one (10 amps) so check that as well. It plugs right into the radio and is part of the jack that the harness plugs into.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Got a used pioneer deh 1700 can i ground to the back of the deck? no black wire

The chassis of the receiver normally is connected to its ground, it should work, but if want to look for the missing cable please follow the color sequence at the rear connector, the ground wire is the third starting from the yellow cable, the second should be the red one, for more details about your receiver please check the user manual at:

Pioneer DEH - 1700

The wires that you are looking for on the back of the radio is the yellow, red, and black. The yellow is for constant power, the red is for power only when the key is turned on, and the black is ground. You need all three in order for it to work.

Deh 1700 will not eject cd

There should be a small reset button you can push with the point of a pen, that will reset the radio, if you can't find this, simply disconnect power for a few seconds, and reconnect. If reseting it does not get the disk out, you may want to buy a new head unit, the repair for this is usualy at least $80 just to take the lid off, and tell you what is wrong.

Preset memory not working on pioneer DEH 1700 radio

You must connect the constant hot wire (or there is a fuse blown somewhere).... it should either be orange or yellow at the rear of the pioneer radio ... it should be connected to a wire that recieves power even when the key is off ... that wire will depend on the car itself ... if you used a connector to plug into the factory wires (a good idea) that connecter should have a yellow wire that would supply a constant "hot" for your pioneer, if it doesn't there should be a fuse blown in the car fuse box.

Pioneer radios is out

If you are refeing to the actual car fuses, you may have put too large of a fuse in and blown the radio's fuse. on most radios, there is a fuse that sits in the back of the radio. just pull out the radio and see if that is the problem

I have a pioneer DEH-P3000

Hi nhmteam. I have the solution for you: 1. With your DEH-P3000 turned off, press your FUNCtion button. It's a tiny button towards the upper right of the faceplate. Hold it down until you "ALARM OFF" or "ALARM ON" on the display. Release the button. 2. Press the FUNCtion button again and you should see another feature. I don't remember how many features you need to cycle through, but keep releasing and pressing the FUNCtion button until you see "M-CD ON" on the display. If you miss it just keep going and eventually it will come back. 3. On the right side of your faceplate there is a button with 4 arrows. You will need to push the up or down arrow until the display reads "M-CD OFF". If your display already reads "M-CD OFF", kip to the next step. 4. Press and release the FUNCtion button again and you should see "AUX OFF" on the display. Again press the up or down arrow until the display reads "AUX ON". 5. Now, turn on your unit, then press the INPUT button until the display reads "AUX". You are now ready to use your iPod in the way you always did. Keep these instructions for the future since I believe every time you disconnect the unit from the battery the unit will reset itself and disable your iPod cord. Best regards - TomR
