Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hmmmm, I am in the Sacramento area and I highly recommend you contact Better Business Bureau (BBB) The shop should have insisted on the interface module and installed the system correctly. I can find the BBB phone number for you if you wish.
Go ahead and upload the pictures. Sounds like they really did a hack job. The only thing I can do for now is to research wiring diagrams for the audio system in your van and send them to you. You can then print them out and have your friend wire this up correctly. The thing is I will not be able to do this until tomorrow evening when I get home from work. Will that help? If so, please send me the Van's VIN number so I can get the correct wiring diagrams.
I will look for your reply in the morning.
Ok. I will get back to you asap tomorrow.
Thanks for the pictures. What a mess! I will send some factory audio diag4ams this evening.
You are welcome!
Ok, Happy Friday! I am home and gathered up some diagrams for your friend. Click on the link below to see them. Based on what I saw in the pictures, the first thing I would do is to undo what the shop did and put the factory wiring back to stock as much as possible. Then get a Metra adaptor from Crutchfield or Best Buy and use that to wire in the Pioneer to the van's wiring at the dash. Hopefully this will help.
Here is the link:
YES! That is exactly what you need. I have personally used that same adapter and i guarantee that it will work. Good job!
No that should be all you need. Do you have the owners manual for the Pioneer?
Ok, the adapter will contain instructions on how to connect it. Use the wire color info from the Pioneer instructions and the info from the adapter to connect it up. If you take your time it will be easy. Let me see what I can find regarding the other info you requested.
Ok, here is the amplifier diagram
Here is the other info.
I hope this helps and please don't forget to rate my service when you get a chance!
The lighting probably went out because the shop maybe forgot to reconnect a connector on the back of the HVAC control panel, or maybe damaged a connector behind there. As far as why you don't hear all of the speakers is hard to say without me actually being at the van and checking out what they did wrong. But after you get this wired up correctly, all speakers should work. And be sure to file a complaint with the BBB. You should be refunded all of your $$ for this hack job.
