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...
I agree. And Lash, I am greatful for all your input. But everytime I ran one of those down, I got the same answer. All of those imput items required that the stock radio have a CD changer input. That is how all of them connect. And my radio doesn't have one. Did any of the 95-99 radios have a cd changer input? And if so, could I make it work in my car with the existing wiring? Because if so, then one of these inputs would work. I would much rather do that than use an FM modulator. Those are OK, but just don't sound as good.

Yea, FM modulators are actually the worst things ever :P

So where the hell do we stand after all that???

Note: I did attempt to interface with CD changer input but a data input is required in order to enable it, but I lack a Delco CD changer with which to analyze the data communication so I pretty much immediately went to mod the stereo itself.

See, now that very thing is what has me baffled as to why the AM/FM/CD is so unique. Most of the AUX products work fine on the simple AM/FM/Cassette and other simple HUs, but not on the one with the internal CD player. the simpler HU'* aren't really set up for an Aux CD changer, they simply have the 9-pin connector.

In other words, just about any other HU than the one you have has an aftermarket input harness that will work with it. Like I was getting at in my previous post, there must be some way to do the CD unit also, but it may take a bit more reverse engineering to figure out the method. It'* possible that the only way to do so will be to go internal, like ACiD did.

Acid: You say the cd player is running all the time while listening to the Ipod. On cold days, my cd player won't read cd'* and spits them back out and switches to radio. Will the same thing happen with the mod in place?

Also, do you have any clue how much adaptation the mod will take to work on my 95 Grand Am cd player? (nearly identical to the 92-93 bonne cd player)

Yes, it will stop playing and swithc to the radio still.

Give me a good pic or two of the mainboard of the radio, and the CD player unit. Specifically of the connectors at both ends (with the wires still in place).




Note to all: I haven't forgotten about doing up the official guide, just school has been a higher priority recently.

Unfortunately this is the best i've got. My spare radios are at home and i'm at college right now. Right after this picture was taken, (2 yrs ago) i got a call from the police saying my car had got hit and probably totalled . So i gave up this project.

Do you recall which one of those wires in pic 6 attached the CD player unit?

You're in the same predicament I was, so I had a friend send me a new stereo while I was at school so I could do the mockup, and just install when I was home for a couple days.

To conclude this, and provide for anyone who missed it in the other thread the final written guide is available on my site at: http://www.bradgoldring.com/delco_auxin.pdf

Peace.
