    Radio Mute

    Does anyone know which wire I need to connect to for muting the radio?

    Re: Radio Mute

    Pin 3 on the back of the PCM connector....There is no wire, you'll have to make one up...go to Rennlist and do a search, there's plenty of info regarding this...If you're doing a handsfree install there are wire identifications listed there to tell you which is + ground etc

    Re: Radio Mute

    why mute the radio???

    Re: Radio Mute

    Thanks for the info

    Re: Radio Mute

    Because I am installing a Mobile phone car kit and wish the radio to mute automatically on an incoming call.

    Re: Radio Mute

    oh so you need auto mute for incoming and outcoming calls..

    Are you using a Bluetooth kit? Let us know how it goes...

    Re: Radio Mute

    If you're looking to install a bluetooth HF kit...The following should be all the info you need....I have a Motorola BLNC which I have found to be excellant...I know one member had it and got problems....I can only assume it's a bum unit....part of this thread incl. DD694's info who also uses the BLNC....last time I spoke with him, no problems as well.

    First off whatever unit you are installing it's important to take the switched ignition wire to the FUSE BOX, not the back of the PCM (the PCM has the ability to work independantly of the ignition, so you can end up with unwanted behaviour from the HF kit if you tap the PCM's ignition wire.)

    --------------------------
    To remove PCM
    Step 1 - Remove small carpeted trim piece from side of center console by PCM (Beside PCM) Using Torx wrench size T-30
    Step 2 - Remove two leather side trim pieces using Torx wrench size T-20
    Step 3 - Using 5mm Allen wrench turn four (two each side) black hex locks 1/4 - 1/2 turn (CCW, I think) to unlatch side locks. Do not force these. They turn very easily in the correct direction. Open glove box on passenger side to access these latches.
    Step 4 - Carefully slide out PCM

    Wire connections
    Telephone Mute is Pin #3 on Black Plug A
    +12 VDC is Pin #4 on same plug
    -Ground is Pin #8 on same plug

    For a bit of additional info, the +12 VDC wire is Red/Green, the -Ground wire is Brown. No wire is attached at Pin #3. I got a female "pin" from a local auto audio place from their European car parts bone-yard. The White lead at Pin #5 is for the antenna

    Above C/O DD964's excellant help

    Re: Radio Mute

    I didn't want to stick anything onto the Alcantara headliner, so I fabricated a tongue (from a clear DVD box)to attach the mic to and slid this into the A pillar

    Re: Radio Mute

    This is the tongue, slid out...

    Re: Radio Mute

    Here's the speaker under the dash

    Re: Radio Mute

    Speaker attached to AC vent via heavy duty double sided tape (no rattles)

    Re: Radio Mute

    This is the user interface module (UIM) which is a pretty good match to the interior silver (it also illuminates very nicely when switched on)

    Re: Radio Mute

    Finally, here is the fuse block tap that I mentioned in my first post....

    Re: Radio Mute

    When the phone rings, the PCM is muted and the message External phone active appears on the screen. All of the above is completely un-installable allowing the car to be returned to 'stock' condition, as no holes etc were drilled. The main module is also under the dash attached in a similar fashion to the speaker (couldn't access it to take a photo...sorry)

    Here's what the UIM looks like lit up


    Re: Radio Mute

    JFraser,

    thanks for your excellent instructions. I will try and put them to good use.

    Colin
