How to: Aux input for factory CD player (iPod/MP3 usage)

Here is my aux input write up into a factory CD player. It is based off of reconjb's write up. On this build, I'll be using a 6' stereo extension cable from wal-mart (Belkin PM0811 / Wal-mart SKU 7 22868 67667 7).

I cut the 3.5mm jack off about 4" from the tip.

I then split the ends on the long side with the 3.5mm plug on it.

I used a 12g wire cutter just to make the cut for the main cable then pull the black sheilding off by hand.

As for the red and white cables inside, I used the 20/22g to make the cut and again, my hands to pull the shielding off.

Red = Right
White = Left / Mono
Unshielded = Ground



To pull the radio out, I used Scosche DIN radio removal tools (DT1 / Wal-mart SKU 0 33991 42011 3).



More to come tomorrow as I get into this more...

= Fail, I have the wrong HU for the mod. Mine, after searching for an hour, does not have R out and L out to solder to. Gonna say screw it and go aftermarket.
