Do you have pin_out's for both units? Maybe the larger one is sending digital data out to the amp (which ever one is correct for the unit) that includes the audio and control (Vol,Bass,Treble,fade) info? Maybe?
So, are you going to try and order 86201FL62A instead?so I've done a bunch of research over the past few days. I wound up running into the same issues as Jojo. I ordered a 86201FL63A 8 inch radio and had the no volume-control issue.
Here's what i've confirmed: there's actually 2 different mid-level radio part numbers.
86201FL63A is described as "Impreza Audio Assembly w/ Amp. Mid-Level Harman Kardon."
That's it... this needs a factory amp
What I SHOULD have ordered was:
86201FL62A "Impreza Audio Assembly Mid-Level 6 Speaker App."
haha... i think you ordered the one i was going to snipe! I'm definitely planning to give it a try once I source a new radio.So, are you going to try and order 86201FL62A instead?
I just found a used 86201FL62A on ebay for $249 and pulled the trigger. It's returnable, so I'll report back after I install it to see if it works properly.
Niiiice!An auto recycling yard of all places! searched car-part.com and found a couple at reasonable prices... but this one was crazy
Is this your Ebay listing?!? LOL!Omg this is super exciting!! I managed to source another radio for $150 (dead serious!!!)
Should be coming in Thurs
