Retrofit Jaguar Voice Control

This project is still being written.

This project assumes that a phone module is already fitted and working complete with the microphone connected either in the roof centre console or (the better quality) surface mounted roof microphone. The voice system shares the same microphone used by the phone module.

Taking the standard phone loom, you need to locate the 3 wires that feed the input from the microphone into the phone module on pins 18 (green), 11 (white) and 17 (yellow). Cut these ensuring you leave tails on the phone module end to allow you  to re-make connections, as these connect into the voice module first before connections out of the voice module reconnect with the cut ends on the phone module.

Microphone Input (cut wires) Voice Module Phone Module Description
Old Pin 18 (green) 12 - Mic +
Old Pin 11 (white) 2 - Mic Braid
Old Pin 17 (yellow) 1 - Mic -
  13 tails on pin 18 (green) Mic +
  15 tails on pin 11 (white) Mic Braid
  3 tails on pin 17 (yellow) Mic -
  11 splice into wire on pin 9 (black) Ground
  14 splice into wire on pin 23 (orange) D2B Network Wake-up
  6 splice into wire on pin 29 (yellow) Ignition Switched Power Distribution: II (Run)
  8 splice into wire on pin 14 (yellow/green) Ignition Switched Power Distribution: I (Accessory)
  22 splice into wire on pin 12 (brown/red) Battery Power Distribution

All modules in the D2B fibre optic network must be re-connected in the correct order (see D2B Network). The D2B network is a closed-loop fibre optic network and any unused connectors must have a loop-back adapter fitted to ensure the ongoing flow of data throughout the loop.
