Tom_ Posted April 22, 2013 Share Posted April 22, 2013 I just got my first Reatta two weeks ago and I love it. Everything worked after a few hours of replacing light bulbs, fuses and the photocell in the dash. The questions I have are related to the stereo. My stock unit works and the speakers have been replaced in the rear but I have a fairly nice system laying around from another project that doesn't have a body yet. I know my way around a stereo install pretty well but I'd like to know a few things. The tape player in my car has been replaced with an Alpine GPS unit and I don't have access to a tape deck at the moment and I want to run AUX inputs for my phone. This is directed mostly at padgett from something I unearthed on a few threads where he said to assert the #13 pin which is the "T-ON" wire. I know this is the tape detect wire. What does he mean when he says assert? If that wire just needs a 12V signal to trick the radio into thinking it has a tape then couldn't I just splice into the yellow wire on the top of the radio that's only hot when the ignition is on? Also could that wire be used as the remote wire for the amp I'm putting in the trunk? I definitely want to keep the touch screen and radio interface stock looking even though I have a head unit, just with an added sub, amp and 6x9's in the rear.
