Why your Ford warranty is worthless...
I don't usually post rants, but I'm sure this has happened or will happen to someone else.
I'll shorten the story down to a few simple points:
It all starts with my 2007 Ford Mustang. The rear differential went out at 36k miles; the drivetrain warranty is 5yr/60k.
My car gets towed to the nearest dealer, they spend 4 days looking at it, then tell me it's not covered under the warranty due to "driving beyond the vehicle's limit" and now wants $2600

After testing the iPhone 5 with the 30 pin adapter and the current cable from pioneer:
Supports audio iPod output with ID3 data and album art
Supports audio out apps (like Pandora)
Supports controls (track change, thumb up, thumb down, next, etc)
Will NOT support video iPod, video app, or Enhanced App Radio functions.
Without the 30 pin adapter, (using the included USB cable) all you can do is charge the phone on the X/F/Z Series.
It appears that the newer AVH Series units supp

Basically since I got my DVD Double-Din, The USB was Damaged so I always used my Ipod thru the AV2 port. and I couldn't sync my iPod thru the touch screen! So my next solution was to use the SD Card option! I then noticed no matter if I switched the av custom settings or had a DVD or SD Card, when I stopped and turned off my car and came back to Resume where I left off In the Movie loaded in the DVD slot, or half way thru the Folder and song I had playing on the SD Card, Nothing was saved and t
So I have watched all the YouTube how to Videos for the x910 and 930bt avic models. Because apparently the double din DVD Player I have is known as the Mysterious Model and there is NO how to videos or blog/forums discussing or showing how to do the installation or more importantly the BYPASS for x9115bt??? so i have done the mute wire trick then mute wire and green parking brake wire connected to the ground wire and grounded all together, right? so we tried multiple solutions and we are still s

I have a x930bt pioneer gps built-in in-dash that I just purchased about 6 months ago at best buy, however when I had my car on non-op the battery died and now its asking for my password.

After doing everything else, when i get to this point and complete it and hit reset the splash screen comes up then after a few seconds it go's black. can some one help. Thank you.
Step 4: Turn the unit on. When the Pioneer logo comes up, press and hold the menu, map, eject and the reset button at the same time. When your screen goes completely blank, let go of the reset button but continue to hold menu, map, and eject buttons.* This will bring you to a blue screen wanting you to press
I have an Avic X710BT which I installed last weekend in my 2005 Chevy Suburban .Everything works, after I did the bypass, except for I cannot hear my navigation, nor my Bluetooth. Again, everything appears to be working but no sound. I have read posts where it talks about the sound is generated to the front speakers, so maybe this is my problem? Although I do have complete sound form my radio / Ipod / CD / etc.... My fade does appear to not fade correctly, but the speaker wires were matched ac
