Not Again....

Recommended Posts

right then after doing much research using search I have come to the conclusion that for the radio mute it is either a red/white wire or a red with yellow stripe wire. Wether or not it comes out of the head unit or amp is another question.

These are the wires coming out the back of my stereo HERE

I was going to use the red one (on the left) with the grey dots on it, is this right?

Also I presume this is the amp HERE , do I need to take it out and whats the best way

Other thing, the radio arial comes in and is two wires (can be seen in wiring photo) one goes to the arial jack the other is connected up to a black wire with grey dots via the white connector. What the hell is this for ???

Thanks for any help

EDIT: its a 99 sport with cd at bottom

You don't need to take the amp out Jim,

You can get the connection from the back of the stereo.

Can you post a clearer picture of the radio plug and I'll tell you where to connect it.

I believe the newer headunits (cd at top) do not have a mute wire only the older ones like mine, even then I think that some are different (wiring wise). Hopefully Duncan can sort this out
