Mute signal for car hifi

Hello!
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

    Hello.

    it wasnt clear for us. Both 12v and ground may connected to mute line? or musn't? I read somewhere that car kit just sends a signal impulse when rings and after disconnection.

Try applying either 12v dc or ground via a 10 kohm resistor - the resistor should prevent too much current flowing.

This can be a serious fault in the RF receiving stages as the signal processing being weak the AFT- auto frequency tuning- seems to HUNT around and also produce the squelch - mute activated with low signal.
This might need a signal test in the front end section and so you might help. But before you pull out the set a possible chance can also be a faulty ANTENNAE. If possible remove and check on the wores, connectors and the antennae. Try with another working one or try this in another set to confirm.

Ur tv mute button might not be function anymore,because of rubber inner layer are worn out or the main CPU chip of the remote itself it shorted causes this problems.U have a Digital Camera,turn it on.Put the tv remote wright in front of the camera press the remote mute button,u will see on the camera viewing screen the mute button work or not wright away because Digital camera can read infer red signal output.Try website like Remotes.com to buy a new original remote or a very closed compatible one.

Hello rbs845,

Most vehicle audio integrated phones use a ground on a specific wire from the receiver to activate the "mute" function. If the wire contacts other wires or shorts to ground, it can cause the receiver to signal an incoming call or mute. Without the exact make and model of the receiver, it's not possible to point you to a specific wire color to look for. I'd make sure that ALL wires that are not used are securely insulated and kept from touching other wires or metal behind the dash.

Hope this helps.

1991 318is radio is mute


if the radio is constantly on mute then it could be the telephone mute wire on the radio harness. The mute function works when the mute wire is sent to ground so it could be that the cable insulation has rubbed off and now touching a ground (cars body etc)

Razr in mute mode


the only mute function is to mute/unmute a call during the active call.
It is the - key (center button at the top of the keypad)
Have you turned the volume too low?
If you turn the volume to low, it will stay low all the time until you reset it to a higher level.
You just press the volume keys on the side of the flip lid or set in the setup menu.

Radio speakers seem to be muted. I pushed INFO button, did this cause something to mute ??


Some radios have phone buttons that mute the speakers so you can talk on the phone. If you have Onstar and no active subscription it can also mute the radio thinking you are trying to talk to Onstar.
