Anyone know how to find a mute pin or mute wire for use with an installed cellphone car kit? I'm probably getting an FX35 with Tech package this weekend. The mute wire on the Motorola kit gets sent to ground during a call. Thanks! SDGuy

You can use your mute output with a relay to cut the Bose amp turn-on lead which will turn off the amp while the phone is in use (it will not pause a disc though). At the Audio unit (radio display) there is a Green/White, pin 12 or Pink pin 31 at the Bose amp in the rear. Probably easier at the radio, since you can get your HF kit power there. On your relay, wire as follows:
85 +12v
86 - cell phone mute (from HF kit)
87a amp turn-on in
30 amp turn-on out

John, thanks very much! You obviously know the system and how to wire an automotive relay. I appreciate your help. I did a similar deal in my wife's Yukon XL with the same car kit.

May I ask you another? If I wanted to mute the system and feed line level audio to the amp, do you think pins 30-33 might work as shown on this Murano radio diagram?: http://members.rogers.com/muran0/Connector%20Info.htm

Do those connectors look at all similar to the FX? I assume that pin 32, "telephone equipment on", is looking for either a ground or +12v? Your thoughts? Any tips on how to pull the radio/NAV safely would be appreciated too. Howard

I don't know about that murano diagram, and apparently the author is not too sure either. The best way without frying anything would be to mute the system as I posted above (shutting down the amp) and use 2 more relays to switch the audio from your HF kit speaker into the FX speaker of your choice. I plan on doing this to the dash center speaker in mine. You could also interrupt the feed into the amp from the radio, and pipe the HF kit speaker output into the amp. That would run the feed thru the amp on one of the channels, but the levels may be high due to the amplification. Relays must be used to avoid backfeeding into the amp or radio always.

Also if you don't have the DVD system, you could run it thru the rear AV input, and use your mute output to activate the rear AV control on your radio. Let me know what you think.

Johnmax: Could you please help me on this kit? How should I wire the relay? I have the Parrot bluetooth CK3000. I wired everything and it works but the volume is too high. I guess it's the amp, so a relay can shut down the amp right? Here's the wiring diagram of my kit:

Hi e39ng,

I tried to PM you on Freshalloy a few days ago. If you have the Parrot kit, you don't want to use John's relay idea. The Parrot already mutes your radio by interrupting the audio from the headunit and substituting the audio from the cellphone. Your problem with "audio too loud" is because there is a remote Bose amp in our FX's and Parrot is feeding speaker level audio when they should be feeding line-level in your case. Call Parrot and see if there is a fix for this. If not, you just need to insert an attenuator in line with the cell audio out that gets fed back into the harness. A device like this should work fine and will give you the ability to adjust your listening level:

or

That's what I plan on using with my Motorola kit. Since you have already done it, can you provide any instructions for easily removing the bezel and NAV-radio for the FX? Thanks. Howard

Thanks very much SDguy. I emailed Parrot and all they say is to use an external speaker. They said it is not compatible system that has amp. Here's how to remove the clock and radio.

i guess my posts werent legible enough... sorry about that...

anyway, MAKE SURE to remove ALL cd's from the unit, AND engage the LOCK setup for the laser/head........

this could lead to problems instantly, if not done....

Thanks for the radio pulling diagrams. That first wedge thingy has me very worried - what did you use?

As for the audio, I can't promise anything, but the attenuator should work great. You might need two if they are connecting the cell audio to all 4 pairs of audio lines (does you cell audio come out of the front AND rear speakers?). The radio volume knob will not work - you will need to set cell volume with the miniature pots in each attenuator. This would be a very cheap and slick solution and is the one I plan on using.

May I ask one other question - does the mute cable provided by the Parrot have the Nissan plugs on the end, or did you have to splice the wires? If they do make a Nissan Bose compatible cable, can this be purchased separately do you know? Thanks again. Howard

I first remove the radio/hvac bracket. I just use a plastic ruler and my fingers to yank out the bracket. Then the clock piece can be easily removed. As for the wiring, I did not want to cut and splice the wires, so I bought two connectors and they fit perfectly. They are made by Scosche and the part# are NN03(male) and NN03R(female). I bought them at ebay.

The sound came out from all the speakers except the subwoofer. As the matter of fact, I can hear a faith music from the subwoofer when the handfree kit is in use.

You will just need to remove the radio bracket in order to pull the radio. Also it is PITA to remove all the connectors behind the radio and HVAC. Those wires are short that leave little room for you to remove the plugs.

Thanks very much - that is just the info I needed. I'll order my Scosche plugs from the fellow in Tampa and make my own harness! I'll let you know how it goes with the 2 attenuators - but probably not for at least a week or so. I'll take pictures as I go. Howard

This is great stuff. Thanks guys! I got a the SE T616 and a SE HB60 headset but was looking for a slick, integrated handsfree kit for the car - thinking of getting the SE bluetooth kit.

I thought of getting bluetooth headset before but after some thought, I like an integreted system with sound come out from speakers plus this kit can say out the caller name. So far it's working very good except I need a new phone. My T68's RF sucks.
