Hi

Apologies if I've missed this while searching - but I'm trying to work out why something that happened on my old E46, isn't happening on my current one.

I had a Parrot ck3000 evo installed in my old (2004 04) E46, and when a call came in the head unit would display "Phone" and if a CD was playing it would pause as well as mute the audio as expected.

I've since got a newer model (2004 54 Facelift) E46 - this time with a CD head unit, and I've had a Parrot ck3100 (The one with the display) and this doesn't happen.

The place I've had it installed say it never does on any car - but my old car did this and I would like to try and get it sorted.

I've checked into SOT leads - but they all seem the same - can anyone tell me...

Is this a "Head Unit Specific" feature?
Could I need to use a specific SOT lead?
Am I missing something really simple?!

Any help would be much appreciated!!

Kind Regards,

Paul.

I installed the CK3100 in my 04 facelift Sedan. I have the stock Alpine Business CD, and purchased the wire harness to tap in the CK3100 into the stock HU from quickconnectproducts.com.

When I get a call, the music mutes and the call kicks in through the parrot system.

It does not say 'PHONE' on the HU when this happens.

Hope this helps.

Hi

Apparently there's a mute lead that needs to be connected. I've got that hooked up and it's working fine now.
