That is a really nice piece of work you did there! Kudos!

I just wanted to mention that there are a number of aftermarket products that can accomplish most of what you did (except for the Ipod charging function). For those that are not very electronicaly capable or have other reasons not to do your mod. It would not be as sweet or nearly as satisfying, plus they're more expensive, but it'* an option.

According to that company (I called them today) neither of those items will work with the AM/FM/CD player that is in my 97 Bonne. They only work on the ones that have a CD changer input, which mine doesn't. The only thing they have is a hard wired FM Modulator. Not the way I want to go.

I don't think they are accurate there. The only thing you really need is the 9-pin input. I know someone here at my work put one in his Corvette. He originally bought the GM9-AUX, but that wasn't good, 'cause he had the internal CD changer. So he bought the other one for his.

Using the right kit, you are doing the same thing that ACiD did.

Well, then help me out here...mine already has something connected to the 9 pin aux input. It has the 9 pin connector, but there is only one wire running from the connector out into a wire bundle in the dash. I always figured that might be the steering wheel controls, but now I'm not so sure. What is that? And does this item "PXGM9" or the "GM9-AUX" allow for the connection of that one wire? When I called them, the service rep first said I needed the GM9-AUX, but when I pointed out to him that the listing on the web said that "1995-1999 AM/FM/CD radios will not work with this device. Use FMM100 and GM30" he then said..."oh yeah, I guess that'* right, you need the FM Modulator".

So, will one of these work for me or not?


Thanks

Gary

OK, now your reaching my limit of knowledge on these items. I know that the GM9-Aux says it doesn't work specifically with the AM/FM/CD player, so that sucks for your particular situation. I do know that each of these products are "inline" connectors, meaning that they have both a 9-pin Male connector and a 9-pin Female connector. You connect them in between your HU and the factory 9-pin Male connector.

So your single wire would indeed be reconnected.
-----------------------

OK, so I looked further on that particular site and found a more expensive item that should work for sure, called IPOD2CAR: at http://www.installer.com/ipod/
Quote:
IPOD2CAR - $180.00
Apple iPod Auxiliary Audio

The hottest MP3 player just got hotter!

iPod fans will love this interface!
The IPOD2CAR is an Auxiliary Audio Input and Controller for your iPod, that connects directly to 18 different manufacturers factory radios.
- No FM modulators
- Change tracks using the radio or steering wheel audio controls
- Charges the iPod battery
- Turns off the iPod when vehicle turns off.
- Works with iPod mini and 2nd generation iPods with touch pads up to and including 4th gen ipods.

The IPOD2CAR pictured at the right, must be used with an interface cable (BELOW) for the car which is listed in the following chart - car cable purchased separately (under $10)

Lash:

That one won't work either. If you look at the compatibility list, down at the bottom you find the following language:

"1995-1999 Radios with built in CD player (Except Corvette) are NOT compatible with the iPod2car interface because they do not have CD changer control functions."

So, that isn't going to work either. Bad deal.

Lol!

OK, I give... Jes' tryin' to help out a fellow BCer...

If it'* true that there are no current aftermarket patches for the AM/FM/CD player, then I challenge ACiD or someone else to get to work and find a patch and switch method that will work for the electronically stunted masses. I'll be happy to finance and coordinate production of a working product (after the proper patent application, that is). We'll sell it to these distributors. It wouldn't be a huge market, but certainly worth development, IMO.

It'* essentially a matter of providing direct input, it shouldn't have to be rocket science...
