Re: DNX7100 Remote inop

The problem I had was with the remote control unit for the steering wheel controls. It shorted out. The head unit was fine. But, when the sterring control unit is shorted it also prevents the hand held remote from working.

For some reason i dont get any cd/dvd audio when in single zone. i can hear the audio in dual zone but only if the other zone is on tuner.

Are you using an amplifier? If so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white (amplifier remote turn on). The power antenna remote turns off when leaving tuner mode.

Dim Mode

Make sure the orange wire with white stripe is connected to your dash illumination/parking lamp circuit. There should be a tag on it that says 'ILLUM' (unless the installer clipped it). That should dim the display whenever your lights are on.

If that doesn't do it enough I think your going to have to dial down the brighness - and that will do it for all functions.

DNX7100 Security Code Password

While code request mode,point the remote control to the unit and enter this code 55222277or 552222777(depending the remote contro you are using)(try to press the numbers that faster you can) that is way you type KCAR from the remote control.
you will not see any change on the screen while you entering the number,only when you enter the last number the unit will go to standby mode.
if you make a mistake,reset the unit and start all over again.

When at the password screen, use the remote and spell out KCAR like you would on your mobile phone (55 222 2 777). That should unlock it.

The steering remote control input is for a wired remote control, or a third-party interface that allows you to adapt vehicle steering wheel controls to operate your deck. Your problem is the parking sensor wire. This is supposed to be connected to your vehicle's parking brake switch. It detects when the brake is set, and will prevent a picture from showing when it's not set. The intent is to prevent you from watching movies while the vehicle is in motion. If you can get a good look at the parking brake mechanism, you should be able to see the brake switch. Usually there's a single wire coming from the switch, which is built onto the parking brake mechanism. Connect your parking sensor wire to the wire coming from this switch.
