    First, I would like to mention that I am new to the forum and I'm somehow of a newbie when it comes to electronics.

    I have a little project that I need help with. I've looked online and on this forum but I'm just not sure what the part I'm looking for is called and what exactly I need.

    I am basically trying to achieve this:

    But instead of simply connecting an aux cable, I would like to connect a bluetooth headphones circuit I have laying around. It is not the aux part I'm having troubles with.

    In addition to just simply solder the aux, I would like to hook the prev. and next buttons to the native track changer.

    I looked up the chip sheet ( and to my understanding, it is PIN 3 that I have to hook into. Again, according to my understanding, PIN 3 has 0.7V when no buttons are pressed.

    However, when the previous button is pressed, it should drop between 0-0.5V and when the forward button is pressed, it should be slightly over 1V.

    What I'm basically looking for is a chip(?) (PNP??) which is able to convert the signal I receive, into two outputs (prev & next).

    Is there such a thing?

    Furthermore, I would probably need a "timer" which could activate a switch for say.. 5 seconds once it gets power. This would Power on the bluetooth headset when the car is "On" and the timer receive power.

    Thanks in advance,

    What is "the signal I receive"? Producing the two voltage levels is trivial once you have a "switch" but it's not clear where your next and previous inputs are coming from. If you're controlling an iPod anyway, I'm not sure I see the relevance of the next and previous controls internal to the stereo.

    The mods might decide this is an automotive modification and close the thread.
