Customer Question

Just installed the Pioneer nex 4100 in my daughters jeep. Can't get any phone sounds, other than music, to play through speakers. No siri, no texts, no phone. It appears as though it's listening and responding. I just can't hear anything??? Any clue as to what is causing that???

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If you are using an Iphone there are a couple of adapters it looks like for this model here to make your Iphone work with your system.If the adapter cables were not installed this needs done and I can help to let you know which one you need depending on the Iphone being used.There was also an issue with a software update for the Andriod system on phones that use Android.Let me know which phone you are using and we can continue from here.

I have that. Lightning cable. It seems as though the deck is on some sort of speaker out mute??
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

Have you checked to see if there is an option to turn off the mute feature.I know some of the Pioneer models had this feature and it had to be disabled in the settings.Let me know.

Thanks Pete

I've tried everything! It's muted somehow. I guess I'll just stop by the local installation shop. Clearly I'm not smart enough to fix this thing!!!
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

An audio install facility should be able to unmute the phone issue here.I know I have seen some issues with mute on or device not recognized on some Pioneer models using an Ipod connection so most likely you are running into the same issue here.

Try to reset the phone while it is plugged into the radio by turning it off then back on and see if this works.If this does not then an auto accessory/audio installed should know a procedure for this model here to correct this issue.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help.

Thanks Pete
