Ok well i ordered and received the ipod integration kit from mp3carpros.com. I just got done installing it, so i thought i would share the install with yall. Here is the link to the kit - FRD03-POD/A iPod Car Pros
. this will be my first write up so ill try and do my best. kit was actually really easy.
((safety warning!!)) always disconnect your battery before you do any electrical work! ((safety warning!!))
So when i got it here is what the kit looked like
so first step is to remove the dash around the shifter and the radio. Do forget to first disconnect all the switches and the power outlet, before you pull away the dash
next go ahead and remove the two bolts holding the radio in, and slide the radio out and disconnect the wires. here is a pic of the back of the radio. now i had only two harnesses plugged into it when i took it out but when you put the new harness in you will use all three plugs
here is a pic of the oem harness in the car, the big one will plug into the conversion harness, the small one will plug directly back into the radio.
here is what the conversion harness looks like plugged in.
you will use all three plug locations now. when your done one plug will not be used.
next you need to ground the conversion harness and mount the conversion box with the rca cables up
next you need to create a power source for the ipod charger (you dont have to do this to use it, only if you want to have it charge it too. also the kit comes with a headphone jack also so you can use non-ipod products also) i tapped into the power outlet.
next i would make sure everything works first before you put everything back together. Also you need to run your connections where you want them before you put it back together. once your done everything should look like this. just press your sat button, hook up your ipod and press play. thats all.
. its was a very easy install, and hope this was helpful. thanks go to ipod car pros, i recommend this product.
