How do I add an Auxiliary input (for MP3, etc)?Thanks to Reed with help from PACAudio and Miscreant
Click the images to make them larger
What this will allow you to do is to use the XM radio, and also use two separate stereo auxiliary inputs (RCA x2) and switch between them at will.
If you want to only have one auxilary input and DONT want to keep you XM service, Go here
Procedure is here http://www.cadillacfaq.com/faq/answers/reardeck.html
For a description of each wire: Click here
Peel back electrical tape from connector
CAUTION: Make sure you have enough space to crimp a connector on each end
This step took me 2 days to do because I DONT LIKE TO CUT WIRES.. but it works fine...
You should have 8 total wires:
White, gray, tan, light green, violet, brown, black, and Red
-Red/white on car to Red on adapter
-Black on car to Black on adapter
Connect as follows: The end TOWARD the end connector (that goes toward the XM module)
The end toward the wire harness (that goes back to the radio- AWAY from the XM module)
See the following Diagrams for additional assistance:
Between the minijack extension cable and the PAC audio I used a stereo minijack to RCA adapter. Remember, the inputs on the PAC audio are RCA (x2 for stereo). I ran a stereo minijack because that is what the MP3 device outputs. If your device outputs a different cable (RCA, etc) then you can run that cable)
OPTIONSIf you plan to want to switch the sources (XM/aux1/aux2) while driving, you will need to run an extension cable from the PAC audio adapter to wherever you will want to switch from. PAC had enough forthought to have the switch be able to be disconnected and have a standard connector. You can buy this extension wire at radioshack (I belive its a 2.5 mm connector). The swtich comes with the PAC audio adapter.
If you will never want to disconnect the PAc adapter, you can use standard barrel crimp connectors. HOWEVER< be careful because you do not have alot of wire to work with if you mess up.
