Unika in Mitsubishi Pajero
« on: February 24, 2014, 07:19:43 AM »
Hi,

I searched the web for the schematics for the installation of Unika (alongside an Asteroid Smart) in a Mitsubishi Pajero 2013. As I did not find one for that car, I noticed that Mitsubishi Outlander has the same connectors. I was able to install the Asteroid Smart correctly, but the unfortunately could not get the Unika to work with the original steering wheel control (I also tried replicating the Unika instructions for the Outlander). Whenever I press any button in the swc, the LED in the Unike does not respond.

Can anyone help me? Thanks.

Hi, guys.

I was able to sort it out, by trial and error. First of all, it was very difficult to search and find installation schemes. My car is a Mitsubishi Pajero sold by the sub model name "Full" in Brazil.

First I discovered the following wiring scheme for the Pajero (connector 1). http://szcanbus.com/connectors-description-pajero/

Then I found this file which has several wiring schematics for several makes and models. http://www.unitedradio.com/docs/UNIKA_UNIKA%20PRODUCT%20INFO.pdf

However, the Pajero connector depicted in the pdf was not the correct one. The one in my car is like the one depicted as the Outlander connector.

I tried two or three different times to install the unika. However, after wiring v1 to pin no. 2 and v2 to ground, as per the diagram, nothing happened. So I decided to try testing other wires and eventually took the ground wire coming out of the unika (the one in a brownish/blue color - as I recall. It is labelled "GND").

One of the combinations I tried was to connect v1 to pin no. 2 and the GND to the pin no. 12 in the Pajero 20pin connector! And voilá! It worked!

After that, it was simply setting the resistive protocol according to the Unika manual. I am very happy it worked and hope someone else can also take advantage of all this effort.

Hi,
we seem to have the same car with same build date. I also want to change the standard radio to the parrot. It would be very nice if you answered me a few questions before I order it.

1. Will the functionality of the original display stay the same when adding the parrot ?(compass, altimeter, fuel average ...)  Will the parrot also send info to that screen ?(incoming call, radio station ... )

2. When UNIKA is installed will all controls on the steering wheel work ? (volume, telephone pickup/hangup ... ) I assume that the buttons not related to radio will keep working as usual

3. Do you still have the wiring plan for UNIKA wich worked for you ? do I need some other converters to attach the parrot to the factory installed radio connectors ?

4. Did you root your device ? Is play store working as expected ? do you know if samsung link is working to clone the mobile phone display to the parrot screen ?

5. What is your overall impression ? Would you reccomend that device ? are you satisfied with it ?

6. were you able to use the microphone that is already installed in the car from the original handsfree system ?

7. where did you put the gps sensor ? really dont want to open the whole window cover to put it behind the rear view mirror.

8. I have a rearview camera that displays the picture in the rear view mirror .. do you have that as well ? if yes - will it still work or can it be attached to the parrot ?

9. is it possible to use the usb connector that is already in the hand glove box ?


a lot of questions, I know, but I think that is it  8)

thank you al lot for your time.

cheers from Vienna, Austria
