Question about Sony MEXBT3800U Xplod Bluetooth for Car or Vehicle Car CD USB MP3 Player

Open Question

Replacing factory fitted Blaupunkt cd player (CD30) with Sony MEX-BT3800U headset using Autoleads (PC99-X80 and PC99-SON patch lead) to connect to the existing Astra Mk5 wiring loom. All works OK except the steering wheel controls... I've followed the instructions, pre-setting a readio station then plugging the patch lead jack in but nothing is happening from the steering wheel or on-board display. Have I missed something?

    Hi Mate, exactly the same situation as you - replaced the Blaupunkt CD player in my Nissan Micra 2003 with a Sony MEX-BT3800U, bought Autoleads PC99-X70 and PC99-SON, connected it all up exactly according to the instrustions, still no response from the steering wheel controls. Just wondering if you had any luck finding out if you did something wrong or whatever?

Here is a link to Sony installation wiring for your MEX-BT2500. You didn't say what car that you're installing in.

I had the same problem, CD not accepted by unit and pressing source button to select CD player causes unit to display reset.
Using reset button just causes unit to 'whir' for a while, problem is not solved. Firstly with unit switched off, and the ignition off I inserted a CD using some gentle force, I then inserted a second CD, forcing it in over the top of the first. Next I pressed and held the reset button for a short time before releasing it. Both CDs were ejected, when the unit had stopped I took the CDs out, replaced the front panel and turned on the ignition, The unit will now accept CDs and eject them O.K.

(This did take two attempts to get right). Seems to reset the eject status of the CD player.

My jvc dosnt work in my astra


you need a pc99-x06 and then a patch lead which is stereo specific, so if you buy a JVC it will be pc99-jvc, alpine will be pc99-alp etc etc for your steering wheel controls (these are made by a company called autoleads who do loads of different stuff for car audio)

the stereo you purchase will have to be steering wheel control compatible, which should be stated in the description/instructions

you can have a sub amp etc with steering wheel controls, as thats run from the stereo and main wiring loom, and isn't affected by your steering wheel controls

Jvc car audio KD-PDR51installation problem


Your switched ignition lead is hooked to a constant voltage wire.
You need to find a source wire that is only given power with the key in the on position.
One wire (yellow) on radio goes to a power wire with +12V constant power (regardless of key position)
The other wire (RED) on radio will need to be attached to a Power wire whose supply is only +12V when the ignition is enabled.
Since you are using a wire harness, you just need to reverse the 2 wires as they currently are installed.

Hope this solves one problem anyway.

the wires being reversed on the harness also may not activate an internal relay allowing the steering wheel functions to operate.Switch the 2 power wires, and re-try.

If the steering wheel controls still fail to operate properly, your module may be defective.

Post your results.

Installing CD Player in Peugeot 206


Hi dont know if anyone reads this still. First the finger tip control you have to rewire it into the new cd player with a Autoleads PC99-X26 - Peugeot 206 plus connection to your make of radio. Also the wireing problem some times is down to the red and yellow wires being the wrong way round swap them over and this should solve this.
