What is the input to the tele mute wire? Can I use a switch?

I replaced the stereo in my boat with a fusion radio. The new head comes with a brown tele mute wire. Can I connect this wire to a switch in the cockpit of my boat to mute the the stereo when things get hecktick. If so what is the trigger for the mute input? Is it +12vdc thru a switch or do I need something else.

    The brown tele mute wire just needs to be connected to the negative terminal (grounded) to actuate the radio mute. I connected it through a switch and it works well when I want to mute the radio to the cockpit speakers.

Jvc car radio won't mute on incoming calls


I think the only hope you may have is the radio has an auto signal select in the menu somewhere. You can't use the mute wire as that will mute the AUX as well.

Bought brand new car audio head unit CQ-RX420W, but no installation instructions. Blue and brown wires, not sure which is for aerial and what the other is for. Can you help?


what you have there is a good panasonic head unit. the solid blue wire is going to be used for an automatic antenna.
Yellow- Constant Power (keeps memory for your clock and presets)
Red-Switched Power (turns your radio on when you turn the key)
Black-Ground
White- Left Front speaker (+)
White w/ black stripe - Left front speaker (-)
Gray - right front speaker (+)
Gray w/ black stripe - Right front speaker (-)
Green- Left Rear Speaker (+)
Green w/ Black stripe Left Rear speaker (-)
Purple - right rear speaker (+)
Purple w/ black stripe - right rear speaker (-)
Blue with white stripe - power out, (commonly used for the amplifier turn on wire, or antenna wire.

you may have orange wires in your harness,
or brown ones. these you dont really need
the orange wires are for your dash board dimming lights
and the brown one is for Tele, Muting.

what kind of car do you have, i can give you the wire harness colors
