OK, I have been battling this for over a week. I have added the remote radio steering wheel controls, and had the RDZ option code added to reprogram my cluster.
The radio (mygig RER added via lockpick adapter) will power on and function fine, except I have NO VOLUME CONTROL, and no front speakers. It also stays on for 3 min AFTER I turn it off (like, taking the keys out of the ignition and walking away from the truck!).
I spent a few hours at my local dealer (who has been patiently working with me on this, so far we spent like 3hrs on it and has charged me $70, good guys..)
Well, I gave up and we tried to remove the RDZ option...no good, DealerConnect will not allow him to remove it!
I am stuck! Here is what I am wondering:
If yo have Factory steering wheel radio controls in your Dakota, what radio did your truck come with? I am almost thinking that the remote wheel controls ONLY CAME WITH THE INFINITY PACKAGE. I am thinking that the amp (via canbus) controls the volume, balance, etc.
I may be screwed here, folks....or I may need to attempt an even bigger project....adding the factory infinity amp and wiring
Sorry for the long post, but appreciate your help!
