You shouldn't have a problem.
Post a picture of how you've installed it.
That should explain things.

I tried placing the remote on the right hand side of the steering and it did work to a certain limit. If the steering wheel is rotated and remote moves to a certain angle then the remote doesn't work. I believe the remote will work flawlessly if placed on the left hand side of the steering wheel.

That's the problem, I am finding it cumbersome to install it. It looks simple on the booklet but I don't find it easy. Maybe I'm too dumb or lazy

Default UPDATE : Help Required with Pioneer CD-SR100 Steering Remote

Hi guys,

Problem solved. Apparently the remote has a lock on both its sides which gives it the option to install it on either the the right hand side OR left hand side of the steering wheel. It was very simple to install and I probably didn't use my common sense and hence didn't realize it.

For those who have installed it on the right hand side of the steering wheel, do change it to the left hand side and you will be amazed with the convenience offered and how the remote works flawlessly in this position. I am totally in love with the remote and believe me, it is way better that even the standard remote that is supplied with Pioneer head units.

Thumbs up UPDATE : Help Required with Pioneer CD-SR100 Steering Remote

After realizing what a boon a steering remote can be, especially in Delhi- Gurgaon traffic, I decided to get one. While the MPR-999 was on top of my list, I had a niggling discomfort knowing that it wasnt specifically made for Pioneer. I recently installed a Pioneer FH- P6050UB 2 Din http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/produc...50ub-2din.html which I bought from a fellow BHPian.

So the search began for a Pioneer specific steering remote, which is when I stumbled across the CD-SR100. I started reading up on it and there seemed to be a lot of negative reviews about the remote- mostly to do with the positioning on the steering wheel and the infrared not working properly. Some of them can be found at Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Pioneer Cdsr100 Steering Wheel Remote Control.

But in any case, I decided to go in for one- thinking that there shouldnt be much of a problem with connectivity as I drive an Alto and there isnt much distance from the steering wheel to the HU. After a bit of searching on the net I found one on eBay for 1399. It helped that I had a 10% discount voucher on eBay at the time.

The CD-SR100 was delivered to my office yesterday and it was exactly what was promised. Simple, clean, efficient- no fuss, no frills. It took me about 15 minutes to figure out how to install it and I couldn't wait for the day to end. After work, I installed it in my parking lot- which took a sum total of 5 minutes. I had originally installed it over the steering wheel cover, but in hindsight, I figured that it would be more stable if the straps were under the cover.

Here are my installation pictures. One close up of the remote:

and one (slightly) longer shot for the positioning
Audio controls on Steering?-dsc00072.jpg

I had it installed on the left because I usually use my right hand to do the steering and the left is free to do other things like changing gears, handbrakes, holding a (female) passenger's hand or in this case, fiddling around with the sound.

It works perfectly. Even when the steering is turned all the way to a 180 degrees, the connection is still rock solid. It does all the things I need it to do including:
1. adjust volume (the volume up and down buttons are on the back of the unit and you use them as you would a paddle shift)
2. change tracks- on a CD as well as the iPod (which is what plays most of the time). You can even go through folders and tracks on an mp3 CD.
3. adjust the tuner, or jump from one channel to another
4. adjust the equalizer
5. pretty much all the controls for the HU 'function' and 'audio'

However, unfortunately, there's no provision for listing the tracks, artists, albums etc, stuff that you would normally have in an iPod compatible HU. The FH- P6050UB does have this feature and I would have liked to have the same on the CD-SR100, but then one cant have everything. In any case, I have a feeling the unit was designed for HUs without iPod connectivity.

Also, do keep in mind that there is a slight lag- of about a few microseconds when controlling the HU from the remote- much like the lag you would have between changing channels using the buttons on your television as against using a TV remote. Controls on any unit (TV, DVD player, HU) are likely to be faster in terms of response as opposed to its remote control unit. Its not likely to bother or irritate anyone (I'd be very surprised if it did), but you can notice it.

So, if you do have a Pioneer HU and in need of a steering remote, I would strongly recommend this.

P.S. After re-reading this post, I realized that this reads like an ad. Just to declare, I am not an employee of Pioneer, nor have any vested interests in the company. I just happen to really like some of their products.

P.P.S- Mods- not so sure if this post would be a candidate for a new thread under 'Product Reviews'. Feel free to move it there, if you deem it appropriate.

I'm not aware of anything similar. But I'm told of JVC devices that connect directly with in-steering controls (provided your car has steering controls already).

These remotes are great. It can be fixed to the steering when driving alone. Removed and handed over to the passengers when they fancy a DJ role

Question to the gurus:

I have a Tata Sumo Grande MkII. The Grande shares it steering wheel (the three spoke one) with the Indica Vista.

A) Is it possible for me to fit the Vista's steering wheel (with audio controls) on to the Grande?

B) Can the audio controls work with an after market unit? In my case, its a Pioneer. And I guess, the stock HU in the Vista is a Clarion.

Well, since i didn't get any response here i got down to doing my own thing. Used a black colour velcro strap to fit the remote. It's stable as of now.

I don't see any issues with installing a steering wheel with the controls as it will be connected to the HU through wires.

I have a Dzire Vxi, which comes without the inbuilt steering mounted controls. Can't I just buy a steering from a Dzire Zxi/Zdi which comes with the inbuilt steering mounted controls and fit that?

Yes, you can buy it and will have to get the wiring for steering controls custom made which is bit difficult but can be done.
The steering wheel of the Zxi costs 8,500 Only
