Fm modulator diy. Easy :D

Recommended Posts

Porsche diy 986 fm modulator install. Easy

1. Get all your parts together. I used the u10 and u20 antenna adaptors, audioxvox fm m100a (this one comes with a ground loop isolator (or something like that) which is suppose to improve sound quality, radio removal key (you can get this at ebay), rca to 3.5mm cable, splicer/connectors. Pretty much it.

2. Remove the radio with the radio keys. The straight end facing the outside. Plug it in. You should hear a click on both of them. Simply pull it out (if it gets stuck, kinda wiggle it to get it out)

3. Disconnect the radio antenna which should be on your right hand side. (there’s a little button on it to remove it) After removing, take the adaptor you bought and insert it into the radio. The other end of that should plug right into the fm modulator. (don’t connect the fm modulator yet). The other end which you disconnected from the radio should fit right into the second adaptor you got which will also connect to the fm modulator.

4. Thread the adaptor ends through the little whole at the back of where the radio use to be. (Should be on the left hand side) This threads close to where the telephone power cable should be. After threading through the hole and finding it on the other end, connect it to the fm modulator. The fm modulator will need power from the telephone power cable. You sound be able to find this after removing the batwing thing. (it’s not connected to anything if you don’t want the phone option) simple cut the brown and (depending on whether you want a switched connection or unswitched connection) red/green or green/black. Take the connectors and connect your fm modulator ground to the brown wire and the power to either red/green or green/black cable.

5. Take the rca to 3.5mm cable and connect it to the rca connection.

6. You can hide it where ever you want.

Note: the wide panels (or batwings I think they’re called) can be easily removed by simply pulling on it. They’re held on with clips of some sort.

Thanks for reading and thanks for those who helped me by asking questions and those who answered them. I hope this helps anyone looking to do something like this.

Might post pictures of anyone requests them.
