Question about Pioneer AVIC-D3 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Volume Button on steering wheel not responsive!

Installed this unit in a 2007 Chevry Trailblazer. The Volume button on the steering wheel works just fine when commanded to decrease the volume.
I merely tap the button and the volume steps down immediately. When I push the button to increase the volume, it will only respond if I hold down the button extra hard for few seconds. The steering wheel switch was already replaced. Any thoughts?

There is a metal dome under each button, some time they became warped or inverted and you don't get the actuating contact on the first push but if you keep on pressing it eventually contact will be made and whoalaa actuation happened. If you are technical incline you can replace it with a dome of similar size of a device you no longer have use for, like a remote control, an old car stereo or telephone...ect. Goodluck.

Head unit not fully functional


well there may be a loose connection on the board or a short in the circuitry. The first thing to do is try to reset it by disconnecting it from all power sources which could mean disconnecting your battery if needed

On a audiovox vm9312 I lost remote and can't turn


The VM9312 has a volume knob on the unit's faceplate. Just rotate the knob on the left (a little below the optical disc D slot) clockwise to increase the volume. Turn it the opposite way to lower the volume. (If you have the knob set to the maximum volume and then lowered the volume with the remote, you may need to reset the unit; see below.) If you push in and release on this button, you press Enter or confirm a setting when you are in any audio settings menu.

If the volume control isn't working, check if the mute is on. Press once to toggle the Mute. The mute button is just below and near the right side of the optical drive slot.

If you still can't change the volume, check if you have the wiring correct and no shorted wires. Look for damage at the speakers (or evidence of mice chewing on the wires). Also check your audio balance. See the manual page 12 here: http://www.voxxintlcorp.com/docs/common/VM9312/VM9312_OM.pdf . You may also want to try a system reset. (Press and hold the reset button for a few seconds by using the tip of a ballpoint pen in the little opening at the lower right hand side of the faceplate.)

I hope this helps.

The unlock code usually only goes on if you previously put one on there. I would suggest calling Kenwood but there is a guy that claims he can fix this i have never tried this but you can. http://mike-unlockcodes.blogspot.com/

Forgot my security code


the guy that wrote how to unlock the receiver left the most important parts out... guess dint wanna be helpful...

Bypass code for radio that our locked



Thank you for your e-mail. Put in the same number 3 times (example 1111) until it locks and then push in the mute bottom and hold it and while you hold the mute button with your other finger push in the volume control (power button) and hold both of them until a new screen comes up and then put in 122164 and hit OK and that should work.





let me break it down you do not need the remote...

first put the same number in (e.g 1111 enter this number 3 times) second after the device locks on the radio hold the mute button while holding that press in the volume nob (e.g power button) hold them both till another screen comes up and enter 122164 and press ok and your all done... this solution works on all dual indash dvd players

Factory controls interface?


Call these guys at hifiaudio.com and purchase the SWC module that matches your vehicle (ask for Scroche brand). Once you purchase the SWC module, make sure you read the installation instructions two or three times before you install it. Once installed, these SWC units work great. I just completed the installation on my 2008 F150 with the Kenwood DNX-7100 and my steering wheel interface works perfectly.

Jensen vm9311 dvd indash volume is loud when i turn on car


Heres the best way to fix; Quote from manual "Programmable Turn-On Volume (Pg.12) This feature allows the user to select a turn-on colume setting regardless of the colume setting prior to turning the unit off. To program a specific volume level, push and hold the VOL/LOC/DV know (6) while the yellow volume bar is displayed on the screen. The unit will beep two times to confirm your turn-on volume setting." Ah i had the same problem. I turned to the manual and it worked for me :) Good Luck, Ern
