    Pioneer 80 prs issues

    This is my second 80prs and I having similar issues with both. I've tried everything from resetting it, rewiring it, separate grounds multiple times. I couldn't change the volume or get to the menu on the first and I can't get to the menu on this one either. It switches songs randomly and the rear channels having issues with distortion and cut in and out, on top of putting my sub amps into protect. I've swapped out 3 different pioneer head units ( same wiring harness and everything else ) but I'm only getting these issues with this one.

    It acts normal randomly

    What are my other options as far as troubleshooting it.



    Head Unit: Alpine Ixa-W404
    Front Stage: Alpine Type X 5.25 Component Speakers
    Front Stage Amp: JL 300v2.2
    Rear Stage: 4 Infinity Kappa Perfect 6x9s

    Subs: 2 Sundown Nightshade V.2 15s Spl Coil Upgrades
    Enclosure: Building 6^3 ft Tuned to 32 hz
    Sub Amps: 2 Sundown 3000ds
    Batts: kinetik 1400, 2400, Looking for 2 more 2400 equivalents or better

    Clean the contacts on the faceplate and the HU itself with alcohol swabs.

    trade it to me for one of my DDins.
    but really, check the contacts, maybe pico fuse for distortion?

    I had the same problem and actually returned it for a replacement. Ended up waiting 1 month because of back order.
    So heres the problem, you have to take out the tuner plug you have in the back plugged in. (the one that is next to the phone mic wire)
    That plug actually plugs in the front when you tune the HU. I also had the tuner wire plugged in the back. Hope this resolves your problem.

    Re: Pioneer 80 prs issues

    did u plug one of the mics into the wired remote on the back? i did that and my deck was TRIPPIN. unplugged both mics in the back (bluetooth and tuning mic) and it worked fine. Plugged bluetooth mic in and it still worked fine. Plugged tuning mic in the back and it didn't work. then i realized the tuning mic is supposed to be plugged IN THE FRONT in the aux in not in the back (thought it went in the back since it fit). So make sure you don't have anything plugged into the wired remote mic slot except a wired remote

    Will do as soon as I get home because that's exactly what I did. I'll get it corrected as soon as I get home from work. Appreciate the help fellas

    That's where you'd plug in a steering wheel control adapter.

    Re: Pioneer 80 prs issues

    I see

    *I had the same question. Why wouldn't they tell you specifically not to plug anything into that or at least have it in the troubleshooting section?

    For vehicles that have stock steering wheel controls (or I believe you can also buy aftermarket ones), just plugging in a new deck with harness will not retain functionality of them. For those that want to retain them, adapters are needed.

    That's the mic for the auto tuning. Read through the manual for a complete description of it as I haven't played with mine yet to give you a full explanation. I very much dislike the lack of a paper manual now, my CD manual has been in my computer for about a month now and I have read to bother looking at it.

    All is good but I'm still pissed that I had to ground to rcas. I figure if I pay $330+ for a head unit I shouldnt have to do that
