    Pioneer avh-3500bhs

    Hey guys, looking for some help with a newly installed pioneer radio in 2013 wrx. I used the Aswc-1 , 20-pin forward harness (with extra connections for Aswc) and several forums to walk me through the install. Everything works great, steering wheel controls, Bluetooth,pandora etc. the only thing that doesn't work is the actual radio (fm radio) . When I go to the "hdradio" screen nothing happens, no frequencies show up.

    Anyone out there seen this before? I checked the wiring again and it all looks good. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    did you forget to pug in the antenna? it may sound silly but with all the connections back there it could have been missed

    Or it could be a faulty antenna. This happened to me with a brand new unit.

    Do I need an adapter to use the stock antenna? It plugs in to the new head unit fine, but I have been told that an adapter might be needed? Has anyone had to use one with a pioneer HU before?

    I have the same head unit in my 2013. I don't think I have ever used the hd radio so I ran out to the garage and checked mine just now. I can confirm mine works fine for what its worth.
