USB Port not working

USB Port not working

Postby Abruzzo on Sun Nov 19, 2017 6:26 pm

Hi All,

My company has provided me with a 2017 Triton glx 2.4 auto with manual adjusted aircon. The have installed a pioneer head unit with built in navigation and reverse camera. The issue I have been having since is the USB Port fitted from the factory near the cigarette lighter does not charge the phone. I had a look and can see the wire go from the back of the Port to a control box near the fuse box in the glove box. The pioneer head unit has a USB Port lead and that but when I plug my iPod into this I can't simultaneously charge my phone with the factory USB Port.

Any ideas?

Moved to 5th Generation forum.


Assumptions: That the unspecified Pioneer head unit actually has a USB connection at the rear. Most do, but not all. Also that the Factory USB wiring has a USB plug at the other end. My Pajero does but my Triton had no USB at all. Options 3 or 4 may be your only choices.

1. Take back to installer and get them to plug the USB in to the head unit.
2. Remove head unit and plug in USB yourself.
3. Buy a cigarette lighter USB charging adaptor and use that to charge your phone.
4. Charge your phone each night instead.

If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay us to do it?

I've got a gls and that port operates the carplay/Android auto, so when they put the headunit in they probably didn't connect it up

The factory USB port won't be receiving a "on" signal from the head unit so it won't be powering anything.
I very much doubt that your installer will be able to make it work. Only options would be using a ciggy/USB adaptor. ... Sw~lVaydog

or install a new one - Closest fit is a aftermarket on designed for Toyota Hilux. It's close but not perfect.
