Disconnecting the FRONT ANC Mic

How is this accomplished?

I took down the sunglasses/vanity light overhead light and see the plug that runs the moon roof and the door lights as well as the ANC unit....

which wires do i snip to deactivate this mic?

Thanks

ok...more research has yeilded that the ANC mic shares the mic port with the NAVI system...and is NOT paired inside moonroof/cabin light controls...that is just the HFL mic...jezze....

so...
I have the 08 EXL Accord with NAVI and I am trying to disconnect the front ANC mic...but in doing this it also disconnects the NAVI and HFL system....

which wire(s) going to the ANC MIC/NAVI MIC Assembly is for the ANC? There are 7 wires and the pdf documents (link below) do not address the ANC with NAVI wiring harness.

http://www.driveaccord.net/forums/sh...ad.php?t=15874

There are (7) wires going into this harness

This is why so many people in my situation have had to disconnect it from the back of the radio and not at the mic source. I do not want to disassemble my dash so i just am wondering what color wire I need to cut....

maybe someone can tell me what color wire(s) are coming out of the factory H/U that control the FRONT ANC MIC???

Jayknight/Princess....this one is aimed right in your direction!!!

Thanks

Jayknight...disconnecting the white and black off of the one MIC did not disengage the ANC....apperently BOTH mics are involved....pulling the wires on the one did nothing....

I will now attempt to pull the white out of the harness and see where this takes me...

thank you both!!!

BINGO!!!!!! WE HAVE ACHIEVED TOTAL ANC CANCELLATION !!!!!!

Clipping wire# 4 (White) disabled the ANC front connection....that is what needs to be done!!!!

Thank you Princess for the schematic...it made all the difference!!!

Jayknight,

yes....HFL & Navi along with Bluetooth phone connection phone calls work with no issues.....

funny story...

I connected all three wiring harnesses and of course I had the sub woofer feedback....but I made a bluetooth phone call to my wife and (dont laugh) blew into each of the two mics (front left & right) to see if there was a difference...that is where I gathered that removing the black/white wires on the one mic would not work. Both mics were used for both appliacations, NAVI & ANC.....

I removed the black/white wires from the harness...as you suggested and I still was getting the "thwoomp" through the sub...hence the mic had nothing to do with the equation.

reading on this website that people had no luck just simply disconnecting the mic...I knew that I had to get to the ANC wire going into the wiring harness.

That is where Princess's diagram came into play.....one clip of the WHITE (4th one in from either side) wire and we were golden!

no "thwoomp" and the bluetooth phone calls as well as the NAVI and HFL voice commands worked perfectly.

A real blessing...

The real sad part is that I paid to have this all installed and they could not figure this out....even after they told me they had done 08 Accord installs with the ANC cancellation.

you live and learn....

Is there another front ANC mic location in the '08 Sedan LX-P? I don't have one located in the head lamp/sunglasses holder as indicated. Furthermore, I only have a power plug (green and black cables) that goes to this assembly?

In looking through the features of an LX-P, it doesn't have ANC at all! It's not standard for LX or LX-P. I'd just looked for a front mic, not IF it were a feature on yours.
