Unplug the attached one and make a call. :)
If that works won’t have to tap into anything. Although the real test is driving on the freeway and testing the call as a lot of noise at higher speeds. If the mic is terrible then the choice would be to hook up the separate mic or tap into the cars mic.

I am still going to tap into the existing mic either on Weds or Thurs....and then have my wife call from my car to her cell, so I can hear what the two sound like. I am thinking the existing mic on the radio will be two small for highway noise.

green wire is your sub out, i then connected a y-adapter to that single wire to get 2 rca outs and then into amp.
Hey thanks. I finally received my M400 yesterday and of course it's pouring today so can't install just yet. I messaged the seller because the RCA wire harness I received doesn't have the green sub woofer RCA. However based on the website diagram, I have an extra yellow RCA labeled "Video In". I requested a specific diagram from them but, in the meantime I'll see what works.

I don't remember seeing a Green Connector on my mine, either Will look when I get a chance. Let me know what they say....might need to get a new RCA Adapter cable myself.

Do you mind taking a picture of the 32 Pin connector you have..? It's this one...below. Want to see if you have a wire that I don't have.....if you could snap both side, I would appreciate it a ton....thanks...!

Good luck trying to get a half decent response from them, I've been going back and forth with their customer service for a whole week and a half now

Ok....great,....thanks...! Same as mine. Are you replacing the 5" non-touch or the 7" touch version radio...? If the 5" one.....let me know if your reverse camera works. The Rear Camera Detect wire is a purple wire on the 5" radio Side of the connector....and it connects above the pink wire in the above pic you sent, which you can see has no wire on the Radio End. And the Reverse Detect Wire....doesn't exist in the 5", but it does in the 7" touch version....it is a Green wire(I think)....and it goes next to it....which on the new radio harness doesn't have a wire either. So I am really interested to see if yours works.

Me too....And we are 12 hours behind them....so I ask a question and wait a day. I am getting responses....but not ones that have been helpful that much for my reverse camera problem. For some reason it seems to work on your unit....so I can't wait to see the pics of your 32 pin connector for sure...!

It's beyond frustrating. I've asked them 3 times for the Zlink activation login info, and they've sent me the same article each time. I asked about the reverse camera issue twice and they've ignored it both times. Sent them pictures of the incorrect USB cable and explained that it was the wrong one. and all I got was "you have to plug it into your head unit, can you send a picture of the incorrect usb cable?"

Nothing on the other end of the canbus. Power to the radio come into the dark gray/black connector. Make sure it snaps into place on both ends of that cable. I don’t see your cable for the audio ones plugged into the back? Power is the black and yellow wires on the right of the plug. See pic from ur video

Do we have to hit the power button once...? Can't remember...but I didn't see you hit it.

did you disconnect your battery while installing? from the lights on your dash, maybe not?

if not, plug your stock HU back in and see if it turns on. if not, may be a blown fuse

Thanks guys ended up being a blown fuse replaced it and it's working now, Any advice for the m400? Carplay is a little confusing to me how do I use it on this unit and should I change any of the settings How do I do a factor reset it looks like I need a password? Ive tried a bunch and nothing works.

it seems the carplay is a little laggy with music, am I able to run off wired to get rid of that?
