Default New Question on Aux Input for Carpc

To answer your question though, i've got one for you. Are you sticking a cassette adapter in there or using the cd changer trick?
I'm no longer using this method as i've undergone my carPC build, but i have run into a very similar problem, where the there's that whine, that goes up with the throttle. If someone could figure that one out, we'd appreciate it.
I'm new to the forum but I'm looking to add aux input to factory stereo and see you stop using the method to do carpc build. I am looking to do carpc build as well and wanted to know how you added an aux input or mini plug to pc?

Thanks for your help....Gee

Sorry that the pic links are dead, i really wish i still had these pics but it's been so long and i've long since switched to a carpc. I've got a friend who's got a Nak system that i'm gonna try get him to let me take a peak at it and see if i can do anything to help you guys with Naks. And then maybe i can redo some of the pictures.

so, bumping an old thread here, but i just did this mod to my current 99 SC300 and i get no sound coming through the aux port if i have the CD input on (with the caddy loaded and a blank CD in the caddy).

the weird thing is the aux port works when i have the stereo on AM or FM radio, and it will just play over the radio hiss.

anyone else have this problem?

Cartmill, that is strange. It's possible Toyota could have changed the design of the Pioneer head unit for 98-00 models along with the many other updates for those years.

My understanding was that this modification won't work with Nakamichi optioned cars but this is the first I've heard of a late model not allowing the test passthrough trick to work.

well, what's strange is that the passthrough works for the AM and FM inputs, but not for the TAPE and CD inputs... anyone?

I would like to confirm that this works in the 2000 SC300.

I took some pictures if this helps anyone.

Here is the teardown of the console. I took this as a reference in case I messed anything up, but someone might find it useful.
Click the image to open in full size.


In my stock Nakamichi on the 2000 model, the test pins looked a little different. I circled the area on the picture. The lettering on the board implies that the ground is not the center wire. This is not true, the same center ground applies.
Click the image to open in full size.

I attached the aux jack to the back of the head unit. The wire I chose to run down the gearshift area would have not fit if I attached it at the side.
Click the image to open in full size.


I didn't take pictures of it, but the wire runs down near the shifter to the center console. I added a ground isolation unit there as well, and secured it underneath the cupholder. I'm considering running a line back from the cigarette lighter to build in a power-only usb jack inside the console. One project at a time though.

Thanks again for the original idea!

This is the best mod in terms of what you get for the price by far! 10$ and now I can listen to my music instead of the horrible radio here in socal. My tape deck is fudged and switches to fm so I left the cd tray open and it will just sit on that and let me play my tunes.

So the "G" is not the ground? From top to bottom it goes Right, Ground, Left??
