But the printcard looks a lot different from yours.

Any suggestion where to do the hook up the 3,5" jack?

My Jeep FM/AM radio is model 5751145

Can you post a higher resolution picture using Macro feature without using the camera flash of the printcard? Your radio just has a newer circuit board then mine did but the layout will be the same.

All of them are located at my picasaspace. Note, some of the pictures are also from your HowTo.

Came out way better then I thought as it looks OEM and modernizes the original Jeep radio into the 21st century.





Great idea!

I downloaded some of your pictures and will try to determine what solder traces need to be cut and where the wires get soldered to. I use to know of a website that had Motorola wiring diagrams for the radios but for the life of me, I can't find it now. It will be the same for you radio as it was for mine. Motorola just modernized the board manufacturing process or used another source that's all.

Great.
I also found this one from the amcforum.
Is this helpfull?

http://theamcforum.com/forum/mp3-pla...opic16338.html

Is the signal that comes from the source volumeregulated before the amplifier? I thought the signal where amplified and then volumeregulated.

I managed to add an AUX jack to my Jeep radio. It was quite diffrent than your Keith. But easier after i figured it out.
I just had to cut to wires and solder each of the ends on to the AUX jack.
Works great.
Thans for tips about this hack:



Note, as stated in the picture, this goes for only Jeep FM/AM Radio model: 5751145. I have no idea if this will work with simular radios.

I'm glad you found it as it was to hard to determine what wires needed to be cut without the actual circuit board in my hand to examine closely. It is definitely a great hack for the simple am/fm factory radio and you should post what wires and closeup shots of your finished work as other Jeeps are sure to have your radio with a more updated circuit board layout then mine was.

Enjoy your new found sounds in otherwise just another plain old radio that only received whatever was being broadcast on the airways. It is great to do that and cost next to nothing also.

Adding AUX to Jeep FM radio model: 5751145

Hi, here i s a guide to add AUX input for Jeep FM/AM radio model 5751145.
It will work like Keith has explained. When connection the iPod/mp3 it will bypass the radiosignal and send your iPod music to the speaker.


1) This is the factory layout. It has a brown and a green wire solder on the top of the printcard. Both of them needs to be either cutted or removed (as i did) and route to the radioshack 3,5" input jack.


2) In this picture i have unslodered the green and the brown wire and replaced it with 4 single wires. I used CAT 5e UTP cable (multicore, not single core) for the installation.
As pics shows the white/green and white/brown wire is soldered to the radio source signal side (point 3 and 4 on the radioshack input jack). And brown and green wire to the output side on the radioshack input jack.


3) This pictures shows the solder points of the backside of the printcard. You have to solder the 4 wires on the backside.


4) AFter soldering i i drilled a 6mm hole in the chassis to have the input jack installed at the chassis. I might be a little hazzle to connect it when driving but, i think i am going to add a input jack also in the center console so for me this the way to do it.


5) This is how I soldered the brown and green pair of wires to the radioshack input jack. Also notice that pin 1 must be grounded. Either solder it to the chassis or as i did to a ground point on the printcard.
  • 1. Black for ground.
    2. Green wire
    3. Green/White wire
    4. Brown/white wire
    5. Brown wire


6) Installation done.


7) Video of how it works.

Here's a video of the auxiliary jack being used through the radio using Pandora on my iPhone. Works every time!

Found a good way to hold the iPhone while driving and listening to Pandora plus there is also a microphone for calls. Went to Best Buys and bought a cigarette lighter charger that holds the phone in place while charging. Cost about $50.00 and does not sag while driving around in a bouncy Jeep CJ.

Is that an Otter cover for the iPhone?

I hope so, I'm looking for a holder that will fit over my case so I can put it in any jeep I'm currently driving.

Something like this work? http://www.1800mobiles.com/parrotbluetooth.html
