I think that I did not let the car reset itself. I tried it immediately, without letting it reset. I will try resetting it and will see if that resolves the issue. I do not get the SOS error (optical loop must be closed). Also, I do have 12V out from the blue remote wire, I use it for my McIntosh power amp. turn on connector.
