I've got a Sony MP-80 head unit that I want to wire in a Mute button on.

On the remote on the transom there is a mute button and I want to put one at the helm.

There is a purple wire that comes out of the harness for a mute input (cell phone circuit, etc.).

I took a lighted On/Off switch and hooked it up to this wire to ground it out and it didn't work. Just injected static into the system.

When I took the bare wire itself and touched it to the ground on the fuseblock, it muted the radio properly.

What type of switch do I need to get this to work, or what was I doing wrong?

Thanks

I threw in a plain toggle switch from Radio Shack and it works great. It makes it soooooooo easy to mute when the rider falls, then unmute once we get going again. Best $3 I ever spent. Make sure you get a good ground and clean connections.

Here's the switch.
