I haven't got the Kenwood SWC working yet either, I'm assuming I'll have to wire in a resistor to fix it like the last kit.

This is actually the 4th dash kit I've put in the car. I went stock>Scosche 1st Gen>Metra>Metra LC>Scosche 2nd Gen. Luckily this came out before I got the PAC kit or I might have had the whole collection

Wow that looks good any glitches with yours? So far I love mine.

No glitches so far, working well. Still no go on the kenwood SWC though. I added a resistor like the last kit but it's still not working so I reached out to their support.

I got a Pioneer on mine and the SWC work. Did they say anything?

Hello, RedRyder,

in the first generation of Scosche you had to switch the radio type to Kenwood. Then the SWC worked well. You had to press one button on the lcd-screen longer time. But in this time i don't know, wich button it was. Sorry, but any one can confirm this?

Best regards from Germany

Ya, I selected Kenwood. There's a menu now that lets you choose which type of headunit it is. I tried them all just to be sure. Nothing worked. Scosche still hasn't gotten back to me..

According to a person on the online chat, the yellow/black wire is for a 12 volt accessory negative. Thats not mentioned in the instructions anywhere. He also said that the Brown SWC key 1* wire is for Kenwood. That, along with the Gray SWC Key 2* and Black SWC GND* are not mentioned in the instructions either. Usually when there is an asterisk (*) after something, that means theres a note somewhere. No note anywhere.

There is also a blue wire coming out of the included antenna adapter. He said its for a signal amplifier, which I kind of figured, but no mention of that in the instructions.

I just tried to install one of these and ran into an issue. The radio works and sounds great. But for the most part, the touch screens of the Scosche are non responsive and options are missing. Most of the areas of the touch screens do not respond to touch. The Lock/Unlock buttons are missing as well as the heated seats buttons.

I have to press extremely hard to get the temperature to go up or down or to change fan speed. If I select the windshield defroster, the fans immediately go to full speed and full heat. If I try to lower the temperature or change the fan speed, it either does nothing, or immediately goes to the lowest fan speed, turns off the defroster and the temperature drops to the middle setting. If I select the rear defroster, it will sometimes turn on, but I can't get it to turn back off.

The menu, power, max a/c and recirculate buttons don't function at all.

Fun, fun, fun....

I think all your problems are caused by the touch not working properly.
The missing buttons just need to be turned on in the installer menu, but your not going to be able to do that if the touch isn't working.

The windshield defrost button is activating a program to clear the windshield as quickly as possible. When you try to change anything, the ITC cancels the program and restores your previous settings. Air can be directed to just windshield without changing the fan speed or temperature by cycling through the air directions on the left screen.

I've noticed in the video that when you can't operate a function, the ITC doesn't beep, so it's not seeing the press.

I've just tried it on mine and the only way I can stop the touch screen from working is to press and hold my finger on one of the screens somewhere where there isn't a button.
Try removing the display from the fascia and then trying it, just in case it's something as simple as the fascia touching a screen around the edge.

Thank you sooooo much. This is exactly what it was. Took it apart and it worked correctly. There was a tiny ridge of plastic left from the forming process pressing the lower right corner of the right screen and lower left corner of the left screen. I sanded it smooth and all works well.

I see you live in California too. If you're in the San Francisco Bay area, near San Jose, I owe you a case of beer.
