Does anyone know how the phone button/system works on the Lincolns? The '97 Mark VIII LSC I bought from Kevin has a button and microphone on the A pillar but I have no idea how to make it work. Is it Bluetooth or does it need to have a phone hardwired?

Thanks Mike. I did some searching and although info is scarce it does look like it was probably an analog cell phone that was optional with the car. Oh well, can't have everything. Maybe I will replace the radio some time and get bluetooth for Amy that way.

Time to go pull the air silencer out...
