    Default Adding an AUX jack to a stock radio.

    Has anyone tried installing a 3.5mm audio input jack to use with your iPhone/iPod? I had one in an aftermarket radio on my first Z71, but I've since sold that truck and now I'm back with just a stock radio with a single CD player. I've seen a write up that someone on gmfullsize.com did, just wondering if anyone can clear up exactly which connections I need to tap into. I probably just need to crack into my unit and look around, but I'd like to have a good idea of what I'm doing before I screw something up. Here's the other thread just for reference... http://www.gmfullsize.com/forum/show....php?p=3315388

    Does it have a Aux button or CD Changer ? XM Button? Can you post a pic of the radio?

    I just completed this. I tied it into the XM wires on the black plug in back of radio. I don't have an XM subscription but it only disables it when then3.5mm plug is in the jack. Soldering the wires to the jack was a PITA but I just took my time. All other radio functions work normal. I soldered and used heat shrink tubing on the connections to the plug in back.

    Nice mod. This would be great to have some illustrations of. Either way though.

    If you look at the OP,the link to another forum, post #8 BY CHEVY MAN and scroll through his pics you can see the way he connected to the plug on the back of radio with details. That's what i followed but i mounted my jack in a different place. i will post a pic later showing that. The whole panel where I mounted the jack pops out. You just have to unplug the power port wires and you can take it with you to work on it.
