FAQ's

Q: Where is my custom EZT steering wheel?

A: Thank you for your custom EZT steering wheel order! Custom wheels have a build time that can range between 3 weeks and 7 weeks depending on core availability and other factors. You can track the exact progress status of your wheel build here.

If you order a Pre-Built steering wheel that is in stock, it will typically ship the next business day. 

Q: Do the EZT Carbon Edition Steering Wheels come with a warranty?

A: All EZT Carbon Edition Steering Wheels come with a 1 year warranty (from the date of purchase) for defects in materials and workmanship. Warranty does not cover any damage resulting from misuse, improper maintenance or installation, self repair, modifying or tampering.

 

Q: Will I need a dealership or professional installer to install any of these radios in my vehicle?

A: No! These radios are easy swaps and can be done by any beginner. You may still hire a professional to install the head unit for you, but rest assured that the swap is not difficult at all. The only tools that are mandatory are a pry tool, as well as a Torx-20 screwdriver. Every head unit comes with a set of installation instructions at no charge. Just add a note on the model and year of your vehicle to your order, or send a message to one of our technicians before completing your purchase. 

 

Q: Will the radio come with a security unlock code? How do I enter the security code?

A: Every OEM Stereo and navigation system we sell will come with a four digit security code. Once the radio is installed in your vehicle and powered on, a prompt will show up on the screen with a numeric keypad. Simply enter the given four digit security code and press OK to unlock the radio. 

This only needs to be done one time, when you power on the radio in your vehicle for the first time.

For MIB2 stereos, no radio code is needed. We unlock the unit in-house before shipping to you.

Q: What additional accessories will I need to install my new stereo?

A: In the header of each of the sections of the site, a fitment chart is given for each model and year. If the radio meets the fitment criteria, then the radio will not need any additional hardware for it to power on in your vehicle.

To access each additional feature of your radio may require additional accessories. Follow the chart below as a rule of thumb for each model year and radio. Feel free to ask us any fitment questions in the "Contact Us" section of the page and one of our technicians would be welcome to personally answer any fitment questions you may have.

Q: Is any programming needed for the 8" MK7 Retrofit Kit for 2016+ Volkswagens?

A: No! The install is completely plug and play and no programming or radio codes are needed for the swap. Some warning lights may appear after installing (DCC error, lane assist error), but those will disappear after a few cycles.

If you are installing a full MIB2 or MIB2.5 Kit into your 2015 vehicle with Fender Audio, then some programming is needed. See page 3 of our guide here. Otherwise, the installation is plug and play.

Q: I am having difficulty with my VW rear view Camera retrofit. Please help!

A: Check out our camera install troubleshooting guide linked here.

Most issues can be attributed to a wiring issue (one of the wires in our kit not connected properly or securely), power issue, or programming issue.

Additional Tips:

  • After programming your stereo to enable the RVC feature, soft reset the stereo to make sure your new settings apply.
  • For MIB2 (MQB or PQ):
    • If the MIB2 attempts to show the¬†camera¬†in reverse but receives no signal, then it will not attempt again until either the car is restarted or you soft reset the unit again
    • If the MIB2 is getting no reverse video feed, then it‚Äôs a wiring issue. Make sure yellow wire taps into reverse trigger in the taillight, red goes to constant 12V+ in the fuse box, black with the ground tab goes to ground, and wires marked 1 and 2 go into pins 6 and 12 in the blue block of the connector that plugs into the MIB2.
  • If even one wire is not connected properly,¬†camera¬†will not work ¬†(for obvious reasons).
  • If you used a fuse tap for 12V+, make sure both fuse slots are filled in the fuse tap.¬†
