    Question Hands free kit.

    I have a Nokia CK-7W hands free kit to fit to my car, which has a CDR500 CD/Radio as supplied from standard. Does anyone know the colour of the wire in the radio harnessto which to connect the radio mute (yellow) wire from the hands-free.

    I'm guessing your car doesn't have the phone loom to the left of the glovebox when it's removed because then its a black wire the same as the ignition live

    If it hasn't got the loom there will be no wire in the loom so somehow you will have to poke the wire into the spare pin on the headunit.

    With the headunit out it says which one does the mute

    I don't know if my car has the wiring loom or not, I was unaware it was included in the original spec. You mention the spare pin on the headunit, is this the only spare and could you explain the last comment "which on does the mute". thanks for the info I'll have a look for the loom before removing the radio.

    I can't remember if there's more than one spare pin or not. On the top of the headunit it has a diagram that tells you what pin does what

    Right getting my CCR600 out from under my bed it says TEL on the pin and is in the same part of the block as the power, earth etc

    It really is easy once you have the headunit out

    having sold my coupe i have one of the leads which plugs into the lead behind the glovebox and connects to the nokia kit.no wiring to do. plays phone audio through cars front speakers. no need to mount an ugly speaker. i have pictures of the loom behind the glovebox if you need it.

    Sorry to jump on your thread.
    Farmer, Where did you get this lead? Is it made by Vauxhall,Nokia or someone else? Do you have a part number?
    Any chance I could see some pics?

    Thanks farmer, the photos would be a great help. Would this cable plug in between the CK-7W and the wiring loom ?. If it does, where did you get the lead from, and approx how much, as it would be much neater and more conveinient to use this method of audio rather than the additional speaker.

    Kit now fitted, thanks to all who contributed information. To find out if your if car is fitted with the telephone wiring loom, the easiest way, is to identify the position for the relay (white square) in the fuse box, if you can't see the female sockets to accept the relay then you don't have the loom. As for the hands free wiring loom, the radio mute wire (yellow) fits into a spare socket on the bottom multi-plug at the rear of the radio (as previous reply), the red (constant '+' supply) coupled to the feed for the glove box light, the blue (ignition +) coupled to the cigarette lighter feed and the black to the car body (I used the earth connection in the passenger footwell). The control box was mounted behind the glove box, the mic stuck to the position for the grab handle above the drivers door (personal choice) and the speaker hidden towards the centre of the car in the passenger footwell behind the centre console under the heater trunking. All now working after a cold day outside.
