What car are we talking about here? What I did in my Bonneville is I picked up one of these:

...and plugged it into the back of the stock head unit. Then I got an RCA to 3.5mm cable to plug the mp3 player into it. I just turn the radio on and press "play" on the tape deck and it works.


I also have a noise reducer that cancels out the noise I was hearing in between songs:

if your brave and cheap and handy with a soldering iron, there have been people who wire in one internal to the radio.
