Question about Pioneer Car Audio & Video
After installing a pioneer head unit, my speedometer has stopped registering, also the ABS, Brake, and Check engine lights have come on. If I disconnect the negative battery terminal the check engine light will be off for only a few seconds before coming back on. The head unit works properly. Any help?
From where did you get the direct 12v and ignition? From where the OEM stereo used to be or did you got it from a different location?

use your user guide to read the problem related to error 11 .. most probably your wire connecting your changer witht he head uint is either cut or not functionall ... hope that answers the question

here we go again. i just had the same problem with my pioneer 1900mp. a little research found something out. with the pioneer units, they have a problem with the rca pre out jacks. they can burn out as soon as a little bit of electricity gets into them. of course i tried everything to diagnose the "engine" noise. but nothing worked, so i tried running speaker wires to the high inputs of my 4 channel amp, and the noise was gone. it's your pre outs, unfortunately. but fortunately for you, if it's still within the warranty period, they will probably work something out with you. pioneer customer service is wonderful. give it a shot.

My husband and I just installed a Pioneer DEH-2000 MP today in my 2004 Sentra, which we bought at Electronic Express. They didn't have the wiring harness or the install kit we needed, but Best Buy did. Just go there or some other electronics/car audio place and tell them what vehicle you are installing your stereo into. Make sure you do have all the same color wires and numbers of them on your harness(s) as you do for your stereo - they should of course match, and the plugs of the harnesses will match those of your truck. Don't freak out if you don't use all the plugs in your truck though - one may be left because it was proprietary to your stock radio. A couple of good install kit brands are Scosche and Metra - both use factory colors and molding that will match the color and lines of your dash to make it look as integrated as possible.
Hope that helps!
