ITEMS TO FIX

AVIC 4200 NEX cannot dim

Need to add AUX and USB input in dash

In addition to philfrompa’s suggestion, make sure your lightning cable is plugged in to the USB1 port on your NEX. CarPlay doesn’t work through USB2.

If you have SYNC, you need to use the BX-FD3
Forum: Notes from steering wheel issue
Update:
The Metra Axxess ASWC-1 works like a charm when you tap into the wires in the MFD harness. These instructions were pretty accurate

The 4in MFD (Multi Function Display) harness

Yes I have full steering wheel controls, auto detect with the ASWC-1 wasn’t perfect (the PTT button changed input modes), so I did the manual programming and set long press features while I was at it. Overall, very happy with how it’s working

I’m not able to run the voice command vehicle health report, but I am able to pull all of that data from my odb2 bluetooth adapter to my phone.Bernie look up vendor
