My car radio has no mute function but the phonemute. Now I want to put in a button to activate the phonemute without connecting a phone to the radio. Can anyone tell me what kind of signal the radio needs? Is it just 12V DC on the phonemute connector?
Thanks for your help

If you were installing a separate hands-free phone kit along with the Kenwood head unit, you'd connect the Kenwood mute wire to the muting output on the hands-free kit. This allows the other device to mute the audio from your radio while you're using the phone. If you don't have a hands-free kit, you wouldn't connect the Kenwood's mute wire to anything at all.
no mute button, but if there is a short in one of the speakers, wire touching, contacts touching metal, the radio will go in to protect, and you will loose all sound. best way to trouble shoot is to disconnect the speakers, and hook one good speaker to the radio, if you have sound, connect one speaker in the car at a time to the radio, until you find the bad one.
to fix this press and hold the source button till unit turns off the source button switches from CD - radio...................once your unit powers off........press and hold the function button down till the clock appears in display you should also hear a beep when this happens.........press the function button repeatedly until the telephone feature appears now switch by pressing the skip button to ATT (Attention) once this is done press the source button to power on the pioneer unit simply turn up the volume and problem should be solved......
hope i was able to help
Here is the link for the user manual for the arx 4570 which is similar; (sorry exact model manual not available that i could find)
For this model - the only ways you can mute it are by using the mute button on the set or on the remote control.
Hope this helps - please ask again if not :)
