2008 VUE 3.6L
Default 2008 Saturn Vue XR new radio

Hello, I installed a Pioneer AVH-280 BT in my Vue. It requires both the PAC SWI-CP5 and the PAC OS5 wiring harnesses. I also added the associated backup camera. I hooked it up in accordance with instructions, but have a couple of issues.
1. The volume is not loud enough
2. The light behind the exterior lighting and hazard light remains lit, which is using up the battery.
3. The chime isn't working.

I think I got over zealous in hooking up wires, which may explain why #2 is an issue. Has anyone had a similar experience with associated fix? I think the culprit is I hooked up the dimmer wire, whereas I don't think my vue' harness has the same wire. Thanks.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2008 VUE 3.6L
Default Re: 2008 Saturn Vue XR new radio

I figured out 1 and 3. It was human error, I hooked into the amplified side of the OS-5 instead of the non-amplified side. I'm still seeing the light behind the exterior no the hazard and light switch illuminated. I totally unhooked the radio and it is still illuminated. Does anyone have any ideas what would cause this?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If anyone looks at this, I guess the backlighting is a feature of the car per thread 108297.
