That'* an extremely awesome project and write-up. I plan on doing something similar in my Regal, but I lucked out since it'* a double-din GM stereo with the CD changer plug.

Excellent project idea and execution. Looks like I might have to look into this project.

As for the 95-99 AM/FM/CD, they did not have CD changer capabilities from GM. Not sure why, they just don't. It wasn't until sometime in 99 they added it for the Bose/monsoon units in Trans Ams.

And what pictures do you need of the insides? I have a 92-93 AM/FM/Tape and 92-93 AM/FM/CD (CD not working) as well as 95-99 AM/FD/Tape with 7-band and 95-99 AM/FM/CD with 7-band. I also can get access to a CD Changer if needed. I have a CD changer here, but don't have the wire or cassette to use it.

I guess that i should have asked my question more specific questions. What all exactly needs to be grounded and how many gounds should there be? I have all the items needed to do the install, but being a "newbie" there are a few missing links in the install instructions. Maybe not, but I am still unclear about a couple things. thanks

Not sure if aCiD is around anymore, but maybe someone else may be able to help me out. I tried this install and have the relay soldered up i think. In the pics of the bus wires being connected to the relay, i see that there are 3 blue wires attached in the first set of pics. I think they are the left, common, and right wires. What i dont understand is if the common wire is connected to the relay? There is no mention of this in the instructions. I only see the cd output, motherboard input and the aux output. Should the common wire connect directly to the Relay? There is mention o groundig the relay, but i guess i am just confused.

I tried to hook the Aux cord ground to the common where i had cut it in the middle. I tried to plug the HU back in and play a cd. I thought i couldnt hear anything, but then when i turned the volume all the way up the cd was barely audible. Almost inaudible. Did i do a poor soldering job? Am i missing a ground? I really would like to finish this project. So if anyone may be able to help I would be forever grateful.

This thread is 2 years old, and I don't believe he is around anymore. I'll look into your question, and see if I can offer assistence.

In the future, if the thread is over 2-4 months old, then start a new thread and put a link in to the old thread.

Well I figured it out!! The way the write up was written was a bit confusing. There are a few very specific details which were not included in the write up that someone with minimal experiecne in these types of things (like myself) would miss. The diagram of how the relay should be wired is incorrect also. The way it is written the ipod was outputting to the cd player and not outputing to the mother board. But after a long 8 hours today i got it 95% finshed. Dont get me wrong, the idea presented and diagramed is an awesome way to do the aux input!! Just a few minor tweaks and i will be done with it tomorrow!!

If anyone is going to try this good luck and if you have any questions please feel free to ask them. I spent some time trying to figure it out
