Hello, I tried to put in a new HU this weekend, but ran into some issues. I was trying to install an Eclipse 3200, I bought it used on another forum. I used the wiring harness that he included for his Taco, which may have been one of the issues. When I first got it installed, it was working w/ the iPod kit (IPC-106) I bought from him as well. There was a cd stuck in the unit, which is another issue. Anyways, as I was driving that evening, the iPod was skipping and then I switched to the radio, and that started to scan some stations as well. I wasn't sure if it was a lose connection or what. I looked at it the next morning and it looked alright. When I got everything back together, the iPod wasn't working, I switched a few of the pin settings, and it worked while I had the truck on, then when I left again later, it was no longer working. I just put the factory HU back in until I can get this figured out and make sure the HU is OK.
Sorry this is such a long post, Now for the questions
1. I wired in the yellow power from the IPC-106 in the the HU harness, and used the back of the HU for a ground, was that the cause of my issues?
2. Any ideas how to get this cd unstuck from the HU? I tried to reset the HU, thinking it may kick out the cd, but it didn't.
3. Now, the lights on the back up my factory HU and in the AC controls don't illuminate when the truck is on like they used too. When I turn on my fogs or headlights, they do light up and dim like I would like as well. Is there a way to get this working again? While I like the fact that the lights only come on when the truck lights are on, I don't like the fact that 1, it shouldn't be this way and 2, the instrument cluster is still illuminating.
It has just been one of those weeks, I got some HID's as well, the fog lights worked properly, but the headlights didn't. I also tried to replace my electronic tailgate lock with the replacement lock he sent me, but it doesn't engage in the right place, so that doesn't work either.
I'm glad it's a new week!
Thanks for your time
