You are totally wrong with considering messing with the car radio on a leased car.... Especially for the simple reason of you having a few more highs and lows on your radio...dlupien wrote:I was thinking more along the lines of doing an install on a leased vehicle. Obviously not having the stock radio installed at lease turn in might be an issue, right?

... If you look at the vehicle specific instructions available from PAC (the other steering wheel control brand available), they give you detailed instructions on wires that have to spliced or jumpered on connector "Nissan32BT" (in the trunk: right rear trim panel). It's real convenient to get to the as the connector is buried behind a plastic trim panel that you have to remove about 4 other trim pieces to get to it. The reason you have to do this is because the Bluetooth module is located in the back of the car and the steering wheel buttons are connected directly to it, then the module sends a modified signal to the radio, but you have to bypass the BT module to make it work with the interface that connects to the pioneer. This modification is needed to make either the m
axxiss or the PAC interface to work. (you also have to connect a second remote wire to the interface if you haven't already)
Refer to the instructions here for working with that one connector: http://www.pac-audio.com/SWI/SWIAppGuid ... o%20+%20BT
The wiring is the same on my 2015 as the 2013 in the link.
Let me know if you have any questions... It's been about a year since I did mine... Might have to look back at my notes from it.
SV/SL radio integrates with so many systems in the car that I don't see how you could swap one into an S and have much if anything function.Gregoryestes wrote:Any ideas if you can just put Leaf SV/SL factory radio in a S model with touch screen and navigation
This was addressed in another thread that you started. The S model radio can be replaced with an aftermarket radio. Even if you could transplant a SV/SL radio into a S model, the CarWings (EVConnect) and some other features would not function because the modules required to drive them are not installed in the S model, and Nissan has provided no upgrade path to add them.Gregoryestes wrote:Hi all. I apologize if this has been addressed in another thread. I just have a simple question regarding swapping radios. I’m not looking for a different radio or aftermarket radio. I simply want to take the factory radio from my 2015 S model and replace it with the SV factory radio. I know the climate controls are also involved in the trim so I’d probably have to replace that as well. Any thoughts?
