    This was so easy. I didn't use a CDrom cable because i couldn't find one in the junk at work so i used the cables that connect to the front USB port and power button of the computer. I only wish that the steering wheel controls would control the MP3 player/phone. Oh well easiest mod and didn't cost me a thing. Gotta love it. Thanks people. No if anyone knows a way to get USB to work like this i'm all ears.

    Mine non bose stereo went fried when performing this mod ,, a big warning to everyone who has an non bose stereo .
    I found a schematic for the non bose stereo , pin 13 is the ACC power ( accessorie power supply) connecting pin 13 to pin 1 ( ground)= short circuit !! .
    so now I must find a new stereo .
    I dont have the url at the moment for the schematics but you can find it when entering the makers partnumber its written on a small sticker on the actual stereo

    Want to confirm (before I tear the dash apart) that this will work with my stereo:
    2006 Mazda 5 with the 6-CD changer.
    I was wondering if that connector on the back of the radio isn't the one that the 6-CD changer plugs into and I won't be able to do this mod.
    I really want an aux input on my stereo. Oh, and a USB power port at each seat too!

    Just a heads up to everyone - this worked without a problem on my 2007 Mazda5

    Next I will be trying my 2006 Tribute. Anyone had luck with that?

    Hey, great thread! I had fun working through the process tonight, but could never actually get my stereo to switch to the new auxiliary input when I tried pressing the SAT and MEDIA buttons (wasn't sure which one it used). It just stayed on the CD mode. I made sure I had the two plugs in the right locations and connected my phone to play music from it. Any ideas about what I might be missing or doing wrong? I didn't have anything to solder with, so I just secured the connections with electrical tape, but I made sure the connection from the 1st to the 13th pin locations was true.

    The only thing that should matter for the AUX/Media button to work is the 1-13 jumper. If thats not working for you, I would assume that the pin out must be different in your car. You said in your PM that you have a 3, correct?

    Has anyone else done this on a 3?

    Success! Even after looking at the diagram many times, I had the orientation wrong for the pins. Once I got the connectors situated correctly, the media button began working, so 3's can definitely use this guide.

    I tried this mod a looooong time ago and couldn't get it to work on my Bose system in my 2006 Mazdaspeed 6 Grand Touring. I still don't know what I did wrong!

    Hi, Do you know if this mod will work with a 2005 Mazda 3? The back of the HU looks exactly the same. I tried doing this with the CD cable and 3.5mm male end off some old buds. Tested all my connections with a meter but no sound when I installed it. I did some more research online and found a different pinout which appears to be identical to yours but upside down. (I may be reading it wrong.) The power ground is in upper right hand corner followed by the 2 speaker connections and the signal ground, moving right to left. I've attached the link to the image.. Any help would be appreicated. Thanks!

    OK, that's good news and bad.. I connected everything right! I figured it was safer to use your directions than guess.. Any idea why it won't work? Tested all my connections for continuity with no shorts... Thanks.
