RB1 Aux Input DIY??

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f20/n...-06-tj-344082/

I saw this, probably going to do this if what I'm going to try fails...

I remember when i had my old BMW there was a way to make our own aux cable instead of paying 100 bucks for a dealer one. http://sftf.wordpress.com/2010/02/21/e46diyaux/

Anyway, does anyone have any experience with the RB1 and trying to make something similar? I found this


Honestly, I have no clue if it'll work because i dont know how the RB1 works... but figured i'd see if anyone else tinkered with it or has any knowledge about how to do this?

Thanks

Are you just trying to get the songs to display on the RB1?

I would use the left and right audio and audio ground and wire in an aux plug and test it out. The only thing I see that may be an issue is the PCI bus. Does your radio have a button to were you could select this input because if not the PCI wire might be the signal to tell the stereo to switch to this input in which you would have to find out what voltage its looking for to signal the radio

it has a button on the radio for this, "cd/aux" i believe. I'm going to give it a go this weekend.

I have a converter that plugs in to the CD player on the back of the radio; it basically creates an Aux input with the cable; works beautifully!

Got mine of Ebay. $100 or so. Made by Peripheral or something like that. Gives you ability to move up and down through songs by hitting the Up arrow and Down arrows.

Easy to install. All is plug and play type stuff. Small converter box gets taped up behind the dash. One plug into the CD plug on the back of the receiver. Cord gets plugged into the little box and you run it out for the ipod wherever you wish. Charges ipods as well (although not iphones or ipod touch models - but you can still hook them up and play them).

I cut a 3.5 mm cable and spliced it into pins 1 and 6 on the C2 connector going into the head unit and added the ground to the existing ground on pin 7 to add my aux input.

I bought a modded radio a while back http://stores.ebay.com/1factoryradio...=p4634.c0.m322

been meaning to take it apart and see if I can do the same mod on the one that came with my jeep.

It works great as long as I keep a CD in the changer.

I did this in my BMW e46 once. I was tempted to do it again on this unit, but just got this extra thing instead. BTW This thing is still for sale.
