Default PAC SWI-X trouble

well i got it all wired in and i had it all programed but when i was done the right LED started flickering and the last function programed started to change (example VOL ^ last to be set then the volune started to increase uncontrolably when the imiter was pointed at the HU) So after this happend i cleared the SWI and tryed again, samething then again same story. But now im trying again but the SWI will not get a signal from the remote so i am compleatly unable to program now, and i know its not the remote itself because it work when pointed at the HU just not when its pointed at the SWI


If anyone has any sugestions Id love to hear them

Same thing happened to me. Never got it fixed. I posted a while ago, and nobody else had the same problem before. I was told it was a programming error on my part. Hope someone has fixed it since then.

The catch is the steering gear is noisy

The stray resistance on the wheel itself is the culpret and I
never got a responce from pacific audio to how best to filter
Hit their site they have a online calculator that helps set the
"mode" to use (requires time and a multimeter)

When programming if the left light keeps coming on (when the
right one is expected too - program button step) it'* the wheel.

What worked for me is to program in the coolest part of the day
(ie late night or very early) and program the leftmost buttons
to 0<zero> so they are basically programmed out.

Spin the wheel a few times and center it before starting and
dont move it when pushing buttons. again if the unit see'*
a button push when you havent pushed it yet it'* stray
resistance.

You cannot re-program a button have to start the whole
sequence over if you "re-do" a button it seems to encode
the whole prom with it.

I had that happen with scan up - all I did was the scan up button twice
and all the buttons did scan up and it still don't make sense to me. The
steering gear was my issue but if there is little voltage drop between
the buttons the device needs set in a different mode. the PAC site has
a calculator to help with that. I'm a 2k so I think it'* likely a different issue.

Start from scratch clear the prom - set the mode (I use 1) - reprogram

It'* a frustrating device at times but once it'* done it'* done!

Best of luck & I hope you get it without too much more trouble
