    pioneer avh 1400dvd in my 2012 wrx...please help!!

    Okay so i got the above head unit and installed it in my 2012 wrx. it sounds great and it works great. however i am having some problems.

    as a promotion i got the rear camera for free when i bought the head unit. with my fathers help we installed it exactly how the installion guide said to install it. however we can not get it to show a picture on my screen. no matter what feed i set it to come off of (ground or battery) it will switch to a black screen in reverse but that is all. i have searched all over the net for any help on this but can not seem to find it.

    also i ordered the axxess steering wheel control adapter. we followed the precise installation instructions for my car on the axxess website and it will not pick it up. we have rechecked absolutely every connection 10 times. it just wont work. the only thing i have been able to get to work is the parking brake bypass. i really want both of these to work but there is nothing online for troubleshooting.

    the other problem is i bought this out of state and the small town i am in now, the car install place doesnt work with pioneer. so i cant even take it in and pay someone to try and fix it.

    any help or troubleshooting that i can try to get these to work would be amazing.

    thank you

    It might be worth your while to pay a professional installer. " A man's got to know his limitations." Perhaps the local installers can recommend someone close. If not, you might contact Crutchfield for tech support.

    Maybe the camera is bad. Try hooking up a different camera or any video source to see if the screen will display anything.

    You need to make sure the video input isn't damaged. Playing a DVD won't help. You need to hook something up to the video input that you know works properly.

    Go to your setup screen and make sue the backup camera is in the OFF position and not in the On position. I had the same problem with my AVH8400BH HU and a Pioneer camera. Good luck and let me know if this helps or if I have not explained this well enough.

    Try switching the polarity in your camera settings.. You are getting black so at least you know you taped into the reverse

    Don't follow the instructions online for the steering wheel interface.

    Use the suggested wiring from ae64.com for your model

    Not too sure about the back up cam situation.
