Default APX 7500 VIP Relay

Question: On a APX7500 with a 05 Remote control head are there pins available for a contact closure? I need 3 and would like to program 3 of the 5 "soft" keys for this. I never played much with the VIP or DEK options on the other models. I am hoping to be able to do this without going to a 09 control head. Any ideas? I have limited space for the install. Ultimate goal is to get a "lights" “Wale” and "Yelp" on off buttons on the 05 Control head. Possible use of Pin 18 and 19 VIP out 1 and VIP out 2 to drive another relay? Thanks.

yes but buffer the outputs through a transistor. the radio outputs cannot sink a large amount of current.

You can get all 3 VIPs off the back of the control head with the "Yellow port" option cable. I do not remember the part number off the top of my head but You need to use relays off the back. The outputs are only good for 12v .250 amp.
