Is it the in dash kit or the Ericsson or Nokia carkit.
The problem is that the HU-803 is an all digital can-bus system and the mute function is activated over the can-bus.
If your dealer sold you an original setup mounted after receiving the car they have to install a special access device which converst digital to analog and can talk to the can-bus system.
With it they have to order the wiring harness and a connector to the carkit.
This device costs a small fortune (~$180-$200) and it is easier and more cost effective for them to tell you it doesn't work........
Conclusion, you dealer sucks and wants to make a quick buck.(simple as that)
The factory system comes with the mute function activated.
