Aux adaptor

does anyone know why the aux adaptor part #82110149391 is only for MY2003 or newer?


Where can I buy the AUX adaptor that works for MY2001.

The HU year is the one that determines if an AUX adapter is compatible, not the other way around. You will need to replace your HU for one equipped with an AUX input...

We use this adapter for any auxillary input needs. It simply provides the audio input, not a text readout or anything like that.

You will also need some RCA cables to run to the front of the vehicle to trasmit the audio from your device to the OEM sound system.

And yes, you simply plug the CD Changer wires into this adapter, and voila!

Anyone know what the unit is so big? The adaptor I had for my kenwood headunit was just and adaptor from RCA to the cd plug in the back of my head unit? Any idea what that box does?

I'm probaly going to spend the hundred bucks on the adaptor but is there any reason I couldn't just find what pins in the cd connector plug are audio in and make my own adaptor? Basically (but with a nice conetor end) plug the rca wires into audio input? Or does the head unit need a special signal to tell it to switch to the cd changer port?

there's a microcontroller in there to translate i-bus commands from the head unit. i think all that it does is respond with: "cd-player is present" each time the head unit asks if the cd-player is present and some other replies to cd# and play/stop etc to mimmic what a cd changer would have respond with.
