2000 Boxster S Sirius Satellite radio, need aux adapter for direct cor

Recommended Posts

I have a 2000 Boxster S that I just bought a few weeks ago. I work for a Porsche dealer and had them install a Sirius Starmate 5 radio behind the gearshift, under the switches for the upgraded stereo system on the dash. They also installed a new cigarette lighter underneath or behind everything (I can't see it) to plug the Sirius radio into. And then I use an FM station to listen to the radio.

I'm having a horrible time with static and white noise and have to continually change the FM station depending on where I am. I had gone to Sirius' website and located recommended FM stations to use for either my home area or the area where I work, but there are no stations that are the same, so as I move between the areas, suddenly I get static. Then I change the FM setting to try to find a clearer channel. Frankly, it's driving me crazy cause if I drive to a totally different area not near where I live or where I work, I don't have a list of FM stations to try for each area and I can't keep changing the FM setting while I'm driving. ;)

I went to Best Buys and found a cable that I can connect from the back of my Sirius radio to the CDR220 Becker radio in the car. But the one end that should plug into the aux of the Becker radio (like where an Ipod would plug in) has a different end. It needs to have pins in it or plug into pins (I forget which) but the cable I have has just a tiny little connector like you'd have on the end of an earphone, I guess. I'm trying to find a connector to plug into that with an end that will plug into the aux on the radio so that I can directly connect to the radio and I hope have a clearer signal.

The Porsche dealer that I work for hasn't been able to come up with anything so far. They are still doing research and so am I. Not looking for a complete new installation, just an adapter.

Any suggestions? Please email me at anbacheler@gmail.com :rolleyes:
