Default Aux in port

Buying a new radio is the simplest solution.

In order to add an aux input to your existing radio, you would have to have serious skills with electronic design in order to figure out how to mod the radio for an auxiliary input.


The radio pictured is a common double-DIN unit. There are a number of aftermarket radios in that format that you can purchase and have installed. The result would be a superior radio with Aux In along with many other functional improvements over the one you are replacing.

One of those improvements includes the ability to play MP3 files off a CD. With that feature, you can play your favorite music all day from one CD!

I work with electronics and I would not hesitate to buy a new radio if the other choice would be to try to mod the existing one. Modding an existing radio would involve too much labor on my part with the possibility of failure in the end.

I hope that this helps!

I have to agree with Ack, if the existing radio does not have an aux in feature (possibly with a jack on the rear panel), replacing it is the way to go - there are many low cost ($100~200) units out there, my favorite (for now) is the JVC models that let you "color match" the display to the existing dash lights - I have a single DIN version in my GV, with both USB & aux in on the front, and I also put a double DIN version in my daughter's car, with USB & aux in front, and a second aux in back.

Hi. I believe if that's the stock radio there's a port in the back if it. You need to remove te radio and have a look. From what I remember mine had one in back.

The simplest solution is to just tap into the amp input pins on the amp chip inside the radio (and this is not an external amplifier such as commonly used on aftermarket "systems" installed in cars, though the it works the same).

You can also go in through the pre-amp, though this is more involved. I know this typically sounds like a douche answer - but it really is one of those things where if you have to ask, it's likely over your head, and it's not really something that can be easily explained over a forum post like this if you don't already have a basic understanding of electronics and how this stuff works....and if you did have this understanding, you wouldn't be asking how to add it :P

As someone who's done this mod several times for people over the years, unless you're dead set on keeping the factory radio for whatever reason (such as when I added the functionality to the factory radios in my '74 Corvette and '62 International truck to maintain the 100% factory appearance), you really are just better off just putting in an aftermarket radio.
