    My screen will not fold down to change CD. When I press the open button it just dings and it sounds like it tries to work but nothing happens.

    I just got my car back and now the open/close feature won't work. I can't get it to open so I can put a cd in. I've already reseted the unit a couple of times and it still won't work. what can i do?

    I'm having the same problem. Pioneer customer service won't do anything to help either. I payed the $70 service fee and sent mine in to them, only to have it returned without the problem fixed.. they said there was nothing wrong with it.

    I am also having this problem. What I have noticed is that once the vehicle has reached room temp the door opens again. I have not tried resetting the unit like you have mentioned. Are you still experiencing this issue and if yes do you still reset it like you mentioned earlier where you start the vehicle and apply the parking brake and then press the reset button on the AVIC-D1?

I had the same problem.

I found that resetting the AVIC-D1 with the engine running functioned differently tjhat wirth the engine off. I first tried pressing the reset thit the ignition on and the engine off, but that didn't fix the problem.
I did a reset with the engine running and the parking brake set and the open button started working again.

Good luck.

Back lighting for my viper 479v remote

you have to go in to the proramming mode of the remote to change this feature. you can access this by holding all 4 buttons on the remote at the same time. (or if you have the P button on the back you can hold it down by itself) you will hear 2 long beeps confirming the programming mode. at this time, you can change the settings by pressing 1 of the 4 buttons., each button will change a different function.

in no order------
1. Beep/vibrate or both
2. page or not to page
3.back light
4. hood, truck, or both

the remote will give 2 long beeps when it exits the programming

Pioneer AVIC-D1 Touchscreen Wont Work

Pioneer has a repair service center in California. Look up warrenty and service repair on their site. With a problem that detailed it realy cant be narrowed down to one thing. The good thing is you have enough wrong that you actualy benifit from their flat rate fee's for repair.

Me on the other end ended up paying $200 for them to replace a fuse. :( So yeah look up the repair centers number, give them a call and they will tell you what you need to do. The unit is repairable.

AVIC-D3 ipod connect&dvd

Maybe you telephone mute wire is accidently touched with the frame(grounded). It's the yellow wire with black stripe, check see if it make contact with a ground point. If it does simply tape it up with some electrical tape. Let me know if that help.
