Illumination Wire
« on: Aug 5, 2008, 10:01AM »
hey guys,

on the weekend i brought my new pioneer head unit (deh-p6050UB). now this head unit has an illumination wire, whereas my old pioneer didnt. if i dont hook this wire up, what are the consequences?

ive read that all it does is dim the screen when headlights are on, if this is the case, i dont want it to dim  ::)

cheers

If you dont want the unit to dim when ur lights are on, then dont connect the illumination wire. It wont affect the operation of the unit in any way other than the dimming of the display.

but if you do want to connect it the easiest place is through the cigarette lighter plug..just for future reference. if its one of those pioneer ones that randomly inverts colours its would be ideal to hook it up. personally they annoy me buy it comes down individual choice.  ::)

The random invert of colours can also be turned off in the setup menu too.

And if it was me, I would hook up the illumination wire as there is an option to turn the dimming on or off. So if you hook it up now if you dont like it then turn it off. At least this way its wired up if you do want it.

some decks also light up all the buttons when the illumination is detected. i would hook it up and try it.
