Any kind soul up my neck of the woods able to help me plumb this in with the autolead telemute into a W211 E-class (or know anybody?) Can be in near 124works, Manchester, Blackburn or even Leeds way.

I can dismantle the console like a wizard now but so many leads going everywhere from the telemute have me baffled - and cigarette lighter now not working! :eek:

I can cook line a demon, but things like this are not my forte. :crazy:

Help!!!!
 
Anybody? :confused:

Can't figure out the cigarette lighter failing - fuse is fine! Agggghhhhhh

A stupid question but did you have the ignition on when you observed no power on the cigarette lighter? If the fuse is ok (are you sure you checked the correct fuse?) and the connector well attached, it really should work.

Not stupid at all - I work in IT and some of the things I see from IT professionals would make you gasp :crazy:

Yes, ignition on. The rear one seems to work so I really am stumped. Did have a problem when I got it which was related to the E-class electrical glitches. Suppose it could have occured again! Guess it is back to the dealer for that one :mad:

Hoping someone takes pity and helps me install the telemute :)
 
Hi

Do you have comand , or audio-50 (nav) or the Audio-20 with the cassette ? If so, the telephone mute line is on the AGW (as it is the amplifier), which is in the boot on the left between the inner and outer wings. If you have Audio-20-CD then theres a big fat connector on the back of the head unit, and that is a standard type connection (the layout is same as DIN, and DIN speakers on the blocks in the midle)

On the AGW, mute line is on the connector with the fibre optics and a 4 way electrical connector (at top of AGW), pin 1.

You will need to buy 1 x A000 540 45 05 which is a small wire with the correct metal contact to go in that connector which you then splice to your mute lead.

If you have COMAND, consider installing the iPod interface kit at the same time, the wires go the same way, so its the same amount of dismantling (but you have to drill a 20mm hole in the glovebox for the iPod connector)

Cheers

Cigar lighter sorted, thanks to one of our engineers who refused to believe the manual and found a fuse box in the engine bay with a blown 15a fuse!

The manual states that fuse boxes are in the dash and in the boot (both of which have have a fuse for the cigar lighter (dash) and front/rear socket (boot). These were both OK. However it does not say that there is another fuse box which contained the offending article! :crazy:

Hmmmmmmmm

(Hopefully I now know where all the leads go for the telemute! Keep fingers crossed!)
 
Got to do or get this done this myself shortly. I am not going to bother with the mute as it also mutes the satnav ths allowing me to chinwag blissfully past the turn. Will feed a small speaker in or under the dash or use a mute box to hijack a door speaker.

I am assuming I get the switched live from the cigarette lighter.

On my W210 the constant live came from a big terminal under a plate in the passenger footwell where I also buried the electronics box - is the W211 the same ?

Thanks for any wise advice!

I would avoid using the big power terminal at the footwell, or would at least be very careful and of course put a fuse immediately there. Any short-circuit at that wire can make the car catch fire. The cigarette lighter is good for low current switched power, the head unit live can supply some when a constant live is needed.

But my post was really about the mute, does the mute line at the head unit really mute the sat-nav too? I thought the OEM installation did not mute the navi, or do I remember it incorrectly (perhaps it did not mute my wife, :rolleyes: I mean when she was calling with her own phone :confused: )

I would still prefer the mute line myself, you can do get enough instructions from the IC and Comand displays when approaching turns.
