Tech Question

Since I no longer use my factory stereo, I don't need the left handlebar controls. Is the mute switch useable as an on/off switch for a relay?

Re: Tech Question

I think they are momentary switch contacts - only made when pressing the switch. The controller does the latch function.

If you use a latching/impulse relay.

See this thread for details and pics, and you can also search JENSEN for info on folks who have installed Jensen marine radios in place of factory. Some cool stuff out there.

While you are out and about around the forum, please consider updating your profile a bit, unless you are WPP.
