    How to install auxmod basic

    So I just installed my auxmod basic tonight and figured I would do a quick write up (mostly just a story board of the install). For those who dont know, auxmod basic uses your tape/md selector to play external sources (i.e. iPod) through the stock HU.

    kit contents

    stock HU out

    just shows where to slide the auxmod in

    auxmod installed in the HU
    **EDIT** Important thing to note here is that you will NOT hear a snapping/locking sound. I was expecting it to lock in place and it doesnt, but the two sided tape will hold it. So dont try to FORCE the auxmod until you hear it lock, because it WONT

    bought this cable at Radio Shack for $5, one end plugs into auxmod, and other end into the headphone jack on my iPod

    cable plugged into auxmod and ziptied to radio to keep it in place

    to route the cable cleanly, I cut a whole in the back of where the ashtray goes

    I then dremeled a groove into the ashtray to route the cable again

    I also dremeled a groove into the front of the ashtray so I can tuck the cable into the ashtray and close it.

    this is what the finished product looks like. It sounds amazing too. All you have to do is push the "tape/md" button and you are good to go!

    Any questions, just ask! it was very easy and I HIGHLY recommend it

    haha, the install was actually SO easy. The thing that took a minute was routing the cable and making holes where I wanted.

    I have having trouble deciding if I should change the switches to more flush black ones or not....a lot of people actually love the switches there......I just dont know

    yeah ricers. lol

    i was thinking about doing this ipod mod, but i wanted to run the cable through to the little spot next to the shifter (sort of like a pen or change holder, WTF is is for anyways) like bikerbadger did.
    The only thing that is holding me back is that iwould liek to be able to just pass the ipod around to my friends to choose the music they want without disconnecting it from the HU.

    The only problem with having a long cord like that is what to do with it when you aren't having to move it. Mine just gets in the way.

    oh dude thats a great idea!
    i had a retractable cord for my phone in my previous job.
    i am sure there is one for headphones, which would work in this instance.
    *firing up google*
    i'll be back
