SOURCE: ipod will not play video to my head unit AVH P5900DVD

ok for the first post with the ipod not showing video .. make sure that you have the correct cable running from behind the deck to the ipod .. (iPod Direct Control (CD-I200 Required) once you have that connected you need to go to the video settings of your ipod and turn on the video out .. by default its offf... also remember with movies on your ipod .. that has to be manually selected from the ipod itself .. you cant control the videos from the pioneer unit.. only the audio/music on your ipod can be selected from the pioneer unit..

SOURCE: My Head Unit wont turn OFF??? Pioneer AVH-P3100DVD

sounds like when you wired the harness up you messed up some where, make sure all the wire colors match up.. yellow to yellow red to red.

SOURCE: Do I tie the purple and backup hot and hot reverse wires all together on the avh x2700bs to get backup camera to work instant on when put into reverse? Sorry just trying to clarify before I open dash

Rev. Lights go hot (powered on) the camera needs power only when rev. Lights go on, hook the ground wire for the system to a good piece of steel instead of the light system in case a failure occurs its quarantined to one area.

When I power up the unit, the camera is displayed immediately, the backup wire turns the screen off.


There's a wire in the head unit harness that's meant to be connected to the vehicle's reverse light wire. If you don't have a rear view camera, this wire should not be connected to anything.

I have a pioneer in-dash avh-p5100dvd and it has so many wires and I dont have the wire diagram how can I figure out what wires go to what so I can hook it up properly

Get the plug to wire unit to and then plug it into the car; Don't cut and splice the wires. It looks bad and you can cause allot of problems. Also if you sell the car and want to keep the unit just unplug it and reinstall the factory unit.

No sound from ipod, usb or aux?


I removed my Pioneeer AVH-P4000DVD from my Tacoma pickup to upgrade to an AVH-X2500BT and installed the AVH-P4000DVD in my mustang cobra and found myself suffering from a strange issue (that seems to have happened to a lot of you too). All of a sudden I had lost my audio on my USB and AUX inputs. I tore the net apart for a solution, pouted, drank, and started doing more and more research, and check instruction manuals. I eventually found the solution based of one lone comment someone had mentioned regarding ground and comparing the wiring diagrams for the two decks. I pulled the pioneer harness out of truck and compared it to the pioneer harness in my car and found an inconsistency. This may solve the issue that plagues you as well. Check the harness you are using. I was not able to find a pinout, but the 4 wires on one end of the harness for the AVH-P4000DVD should be +12V battery, +12V ignition, ground, and ground, (yellow, red, black, and black). If you have received the harness for a newer model of pioneer AVH it will still fit fine but one wire is out of place. The second ground wire you need has been replaced by a purple reverse gear sensor for the backup camera. Ground out the purple wire and it should solve your issue... It did for me. Good luck.

I have this backup cam on the top of my license plate, got power, however, all I get is snow on the monitor ? Any ideas are greatly appreciated to get this ****** functional. Thank u for ur time and...


Look for any connections and verify that they are clean and not corroded. Some head units have more than one input, as some laws dictate that the camera can ONLY be on in reverse...so one port gets a signal from the backup light circuit, and the others do not..anyways, look for what port the wires are hooked into.
