Default Adding an AUX jack

I've had it with my stupid FM transmitter cr*p! I read how to tap into the CD L&R speaker wires and I'll give that a try. I'm wondering where a good place might be to add the 3.5mm jack. The poster uses a corner of the face of the radio. Has anyone tried somewhere else, of knows of problems I might face doing so?

I added the new aux jack to the blank insert to the left of central vents. If I ever replace the stock radio with a hands free one I'll put the microphone there.


I followed the S-10 guy's (picture heavy) instructions till I pulled the faceplate and saw what all was involved. So instead, I drilled a hole in the side and ran the cable through there, using about two feet of cable with a computer molex connector in the middle. That way when you reassemble, you first put the radio in, then set the dash panel with the aux jack up close, then you can reach in there and click the two cables together.


As far as the wiring goes, those itsy bitsy cat5 wires are a challenge even to strip. I used heat shrink like the guy said and don't think I could have done it without that. The molex took ten and the board took maybe eight.. On the jack, I threaded the wires through the holes in the 5 terminals and then gobbed liquid tape in there to keep them from touching each other. Probably should have used het shrink there, too.. The ABS that the jack goes through is thick, so you have to Dremel it down. The project took me about six hours.
