So, I inherited my wife's 2010 CR-V EX, since she got a new Odyssey. I'm in the process of migrating the Pioneer AVIC F700BT head unit from my old car to the new to me CR-V.

I got the Metra 70-1722 wiring harness. Everything for basic functionality lined up, and radio works great, however, there are 2 issues.

1) Metra harness has solid orange "dimmer" wire, while Pioneer harness has Organe/White "illumination" wire. On the old car, the aftermarket harness had both "dimmer" and "illumination" and Pioneer dimmed the lights when parking or headlights were turned on. I have read about issues that connecting dimmer to illumination wires may result.

2) I have PAC-SWI-PS unit for the steering wheel controls, which worked great with the old car. However, Metra 70-1722 harness does not have the wire for the steering wheel controls input.

What did people who have replaced their head units end up doing?
