View Full Version : Connector In Trunk

10-13-2004, 02:22 PM
I was looking through my trunk today to see what I could find and stumbled across this:


It is on the drivers side

Anyone know what its function is and if it has any valuable use?

That connects to your trunk printer. [:p]

i think that connects some sort of phone line or somethin...the cd changer connecter is back there also

10-13-2004, 03:11 PM
that'sn not the changer or the phone, my guess it's the prewired conector for the navigation

I don't know about navi, my 96 has that connector as well...

There are little devices in our cars that record where we go in our cars. When we take our cars to the dealer to get them fixed they have government officials plug that into their laptops to download all the info of where we went and then it's automatically uploaded to the database via satalite. You have been warned do not go to the dealer!

It's a DB25 connector used by Motorola cellphone tranceivers.

Or it's one of those. I guess I have one of those phones and never noticed the connector.

Bingo. That's what it is.

Here's what you would do with it:

yup that is what I used mine for...hardwired my T720.

Too bad its for a Motorola...would of been good for me back in the day, but no longer.

10-14-2004, 07:19 AM
Ripple, you can wire it up to work with any cell phone.

10-14-2004, 07:43 AM
Well I'll be....guess I should of opened that link to read the tech article.

Well that's good then, might be a worthwhile endeavour. I pretty much stick with Nokia phones, wouldn't be a bad thing to have it all rigged up in the car.

BOOM! knew i was right

10-14-2004, 08:14 PM
Cool, thanx

that DB25 connector is not just for motorola integration.

8 of those pins go to your RJ-45 jack in your center console and the 17 pins are for 12v, hands free speaker (drivers door +/-), A pillar mic (+/-), radio mute - input, and grounds.

check out madman0's S4, he has a Parrot Bluetooth handsfree kit in there that I installed.

if anyone of you are still living in the olden days and needs a handsfree kit (hehe) let me know i can integrate a P.I.E speak easy kit in the trunk and all you have to plug in the center console is a coil with RJ-45 at the other end and to your phone.

Ken what all is involved with that. I would seriously like that installed in my ride.
