Question about Pioneer Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have had my pioneer deck for about a year and a half now. It's the model DEH-P6850MP, because the interface slides up and down, the ribbon that transfers information from the deck to the unit has got a kink in it and started to crack. At first this wouldn't allow the lights to come on, then my head unit wouln't even flip down or up and now the whole thing doesn't even work. can the ribbon be replaced? and if so how much?

Yes it can be fixed, my shop charges about $90 for that repair. it includes parts and labor. Other shops may differ, but that is a pretty good estimate of what most shops would charge.

Here is the part number if you plan on doing it yourself.


You will need to remove the metal connector jack that is soldered on to the ribbon cable and put it on the new ribbon cable. If you are not good with a soldering iron, you should just take it in. It would be cheaper than buying a new one.

Make sure that the speaker wiring is correctly connected. Please see the instruction manual that would have come with the Pioneer deck for correct wiring instructions first. Check that first and let me know..

I cannot get my Pioneer DEH-1000 out of my car. How does it come out?

look on the either side of the front face panel for a horizontal slot on on either side .. bout 6 or 7 mm long. IF they are there then it is a cradle mount job,most are (mount cradle and slide in deck,) It will require PIONEER STEREO KEYS. google it and see if you can find a picture and make your own or go see an audio installer and get them to unlock it for you. You slide keys in and they push in the catches which release need to do both sides at same time! NOTE: you may have to unclip and remove the facia surround that goes around the head unit (plastic rectangle)to see the slots on some models. check out link below.

Faceplate won't display

if its a fold down display the ribbon cable is gone, repair shop job) it goes from the front panel into the motherboard of the stereo and after a while with you opening and closing the display the cable eventually breaks, if its not a fold down display clean the contacts of the front panel with meths and a cotton bud, if still no joy take it to repair shop,
