Does anyone know how to connect into the back of the stock radio? <_<

I see the diagram with the C2 & C3 sockets for the CD changer, but it doesn't break down the individual slots. I'd like to wire a relay input from an RCA Jack.

Thanks

Phone mute/Aux audio-in/Tel audio-in/Radio Removal keys in one kit is, BNA-116.276 ($16.40)

To order call (888) 423-3537 x1209

Actually, it turns out that the part number is, BNA-13.19. Tell them you want to hook up an iPod and they'll know what part you want.

On the back top row of connectors on the CDR-220, there are 3 connectors, unplug them all, and then plug back in just the blue Becker connector in the 1st position. The other 2 are for the CD.

(if you don't get any sound out of your radio after this, then plug in the 3rd connector, on some cars that is for the outboard amplifier.

After that, you must then enable the Aux-in feature of the radio. To do that, consult your owners manual (or the instructions that come with the Becker cable).

Shoot, sounds like I missed out on getting rid of my 116.276, since it won't work on my CDR23. :) Your 13.19 is likely the AUX without the phone audio, which is what the 3rd RCA jack is for in Tool Pants' pic. Do you have a pic of your part?

Today I installed the Becker part into the back of my CDR220. It works great and was very easy. I am using the headphone jack for the output and find that most of the volume needs to be adjusted at the IPOD with the CDR220 turned to max volume. Can I use a docking cable directly into the RCA jacks and will this allow me to control the volume via the stereo ? I have read the Belkin auto kit descriptions , This doesn't interest me. I don't need the charging capability in the car.

I thought I would give my own follow up. I found that I could use the Dock and plug the headphone to rca cable into the back of the dock and now my volume is strictly controlled by the stereo not the IPOD . Now I just need to find a cable that fits into the bottom of the IPOD and ends in the 2 rca jacks so I dont have to drive around with a docked IPOD on the passenger seat.

Any suggestions???

Here are the instructions on how to make one out of the Belkin auto kit. You will need to solder on the RCA connectors. You can also use a USB/iPod cable.
