I would like to know a little more about this!
Alternatively by adding a TIPM and small ign module with 4 wires in trunk you can make one of the newer can bus radios operative and the RER my gig has the hands free module built in
opens up use of RES REQ and mygig radios with just junkyard parts
This brings up something interesting. There should be no need for a TIPM. I don’t see why I couldn’t come up with a small module that would send the required commands and interface with the PCI bus on the car. If you remember, the module I designed for my project was able to tell the CAN radio the ignition state, when the car was in reverse, when the headlights were on, steering wheel controls, etc. and was able to play music. That part of it is done. The more complicated part was getting the large screen in the dash and dealing with the fact that it has no hard keys and would have to replace the ATC head.
If we wanted to only skip ahead a few generations to the 08-12 radios instead in current day like I was doing, there shouldn’t be a need for a second or third module and it would just be a software change on the hardware I already developed.
