what is the input on the radio side look like? my 04 didnt have any inputs. probably just a regular headphone jack size? just get a male to male headphone cable, that is if the touch has a regular headphone jack on not a mini one like on cell phones.

its got a regular head phone hole on the ipod itself. the car stereo though doesnt appear to have a female hole for it. it does say mp3 right over the cd player though, so i think i have ipod capability, just dont know which cord to get and where to put it.

what is the model number of your head unit. You might have inputs on the back. You would need to take the deck out to look.

Your gonna have to get either an iPod compatable aftermarket radio, or that USA Spec kit. I'm getting the USA Spec kit myself since i just got a iPod Touch too.

Its real easy. It plugs right into your stock head unit.

I then took some double sided tape and mounted it here

or you can get a cheap thing that goes into the cassette player and other end into headphone jack of the ipod....costs liek five bucks if you don't want to spend money. in my truck i have the cord that is made for my head unit so i can control the ipod through the head unit as it charges and i have a Monster Auxilary cord which i have wired up to the rear of the head unit.
the tape deck thing is cheapest but i don't know what you want haha
