I have the pin-out, (pin 72 and 59) I don't know for sure what the voltage should be. I read somewhere it should be battery voltage on the red wire, 9v on one of the others (blue iirc) and zero on the last one (which I have). But I cant find where I read it again.

Besides that, I believe it needs more than just voltage, it requires a specific signal from what I've read. I could be wrong though.
