How do I reset a Pioneer Mixtrax car radio?

My Pioneer radio has been acting up lately, and I don’t know exactly how to fix it. What’s the best way for me to reset a Pioneer Mixtrax car radio?

A working radio is a core part of any good driving experience! Luckily, you can get your radio up and running by locating the SRC button on the front panel of your head unit. Once you’ve found it, follow these steps to reset your radio:
  • Press and hold the SRC button until the radio switches to demo mode. The word ‘demo’ will flash on the screen.
  • Locate the rocker dial or selector on the head unit and hold it down until the word Initial shows on the display.
  • Select Initial by pressing down on the selector.
  • From there, select the System Reset option with either the button or the rocker switch.
Congratulations! Hopefully, your radio’s back in working order. But if any issues persist, it may be time to bring your car to a professional.
