    Could be a couple of things causing that rear defrost.

    Try going into the climate screen, press SETTINGS, and choose MANUAL as the CLIMATE TYPE. Somehow, you must have set it for Single Zone Auto. Try that and let me know.

    Also I found this fix on another forum: "I had to flash it with the "Synch with audio buttons" steering wheel option (even though mine is the base model with none of those) in order for the buttons on the button bar to work. This is a workaround, I was sure to deselect the Synch and Audio steering wheel options as I proceeded to flash the module."

    Hopefully that helps.

    The firmware was updated to correct the need to flash with SW buttons. It works properly now. I suggest contacting ADS technical support so we can help you troubleshoot.

    When you say it does not work on the head unit or the button bar, it leads me to believe you do not have the car running when you are testing. The car has to be running or the rear defrost does not turn on. Factory radio was same.

    How is it held on, clips? Do I just pry until it pops off?

    Andddddd you got it. That can be confusing when the fronts work even though the car is off. For rears, car needs to be on. >.< Thanks 12VGuy!

    I can vouch for sound of tristate, I got my 890hd and maestro kit from them last year. they're local to me, they've been around for ever, and they're well known and respected

    Thanks KonaFifity - that is basically where I have mine now - brackets against the front plastic "stops" on the Kenwood.

    Sounds like you were happy with the fit when the MUS1 Dash Kit was applied. Will give it a go!

    Sound of Tristate set me up with a pretty killer deal, definitely give them a shot if you're getting ready to pull the trigger on a setup.

    Well now that is a nice deal. I am thinking of getting the system from Crutchfield because they offer support, and for just a few $$ more after the current rebate when compared to Tri-State. As I have asked a few questions that must have only happened to a very small crowd with their being no responses to the questions. I have asked on other sites mind you. But I am one that like to have a really good idea as to what I am going to need and what may happen along the way so I can over buy parts... Have my music going... And "De-stress" an entire weekend as I install the system.

    I could use a little help!

    Got everything, but I'm a bit confused. I started mocking up what needs to be connected to the Maestro, and the installation diagram shows a blue connector, that is part of the T harness, going into the Maestro (Step 9):

    However, my T harness does not have a blue connector, and a separate connector came inside the Maestro box with a blue connector, on the other end is a 3.5mm jack and a green wire (on the right, not connected):

    What am I supposed to do here?

    Just fyi Sound of Tri-State is an authorized dealer for Kenwood as well and the rebate is also offered until the expiration which expires on the 31st of August. They also have technicians on hand that can answer any questions. If you wanted something a little less expensive they have the refurbished DNN packages as well. Just keep in mind refurbs don't have a rebate offer and they have a 90 day warranty. Remanufactured Package link is here: http://www.soundoftristate.com/remanufactured-kenwood-excelon-dnn991hd-ads-maestro-adskitmus1-adsmrr-scosche-crab-boyo-vtl422c-and-siriusxm-sxv200v1-package-deal It's worth it to get the new though, there's no coupon code on remans and its only $200 difference between the two.

    The blue connection (E) would go into the maestro module (E), the blue yellow (you called it blue green but its actually blue yellow if you look a little closer) wire coming from the other end would plug into the back of the Kenwood headunit go together with the blue yellow wire coming from the kenwood headunit.

    use the 3.5mm if you are installing a headunit other than Kenwood and if you are installing a kenwood headunit then you hook up the blue yellow wire off of the Kenwood harness to the blue yellow wire that you see there.

    Hopefully that helps you out.

    Okay, that helps a little bit (the attachment does not work). I'll hook the free wire from the blue connector up to the steering wheel input wire. Then I leave the 3.5mm unattached?

    The wiring diagram is unfortunately very confusing as it shows the blue connector as being part of the T-Harness, and then a separate 3.5mm cord going from the Maestro to the iDatalink 3.5 on the headunit.

    Yes that's correct. The 3.5mm is not used if you are installing the Kenwood deck. That kenwood deck has a blue yellow wiring coming from the power harness labeled "steering wheel remote input" you connect those wires together.
