Do you have alligator clips? You may have to do some troubleshooting. Disconnect all the wires and reconnect or clip just the L+ and L-. You will have to prop up your changer and play music with and without inserting jack. If that works do the same for just the R+/- only. Then finally do both. Something else to try if you want to double check you are slicing into yah correct wires is to just test by tent reconnecting without the jack wires to 100% be sure you have the correct leads. Again one wire and one side at a time.

Ok here is what I did. I took one of the cassettes that you attach your iPod to so you can play it on the casset player and took it apart. Removed the head that the wires are attached to. Then carefully put it back together (make sure all the gears and the rubber wheel are in place because if not the tape will auto eject) . The reason for removing the head is so you won't hear the hiss when you put the tape in the player. Now pop the tape into your deck and leave it in there. Put Dolby C on (this will not affect the sound of your input because that is going straight to the amp) it will get rid of the rest of the noise inherent in the tape player. Now whenever you want to hear your iPod just push the tape button. No need for a blank cd or relay or switch. Later if you want to hear a tape you eject your modded tape and pop whatever tape you want then you put the modded tape back in for the iPod or auxiliary. If you dare you can relabel your "tape" button "aux" I will just leave my modded tape in there all the time
I just couldn't follow up when you said remove the head from the cassette, if I do that how will the sound go to the audio system, and where will be the wires hooked? it's either I missed something or this could never work the way I understood you, could you please elaborate?
Realized my jdm car has a different sound system a while ago so this won't work.
Hello I'm trying to do this mod but my wires connecting to the cd changer are completely different colors. Does anyone have an idea which wires to use? My car is the jdm version toyota aristo.
Don't worry the wires won't be exposed like that.
White with black stripe

Reason: jdm system is different?
