So I put an aux in jack on my stock stereo. Thought I'd show some pics and maybe field some questions if anyone has some.

It took about an hour with my leatherman and my soldering iron, once I decided to stop mucking about with the CeNet port and disassemble the thing. I could do it again in half the time.

It works with this stereo:


PS2533B


Don't think just because you cant use the square plug for official clarion cd changers, that you are out of luck.


There is a raw audio signal coming from the cd changer, via the ribbon cable on the left, to the head unit, via the white slot connector on the left of the board.


As a side note, my AM/FM radio is broken. It only comes in on the right side, and very very quietly. I imagine that the destroyed components in this photo are the cause -- that's not a coin cell on the right, that's a blown capacitor.


Well, I can always plug a pocket radio into the aux in, once I get it wired up. Here's how. On the other side of the board from the white slot ribbon socket, you see that the pins are well labelled. Just count carefully from left to right, until you get to the pins called L_OUT S_GND R_OUT CD_GND -- thats where my aux in goes.


Here it is all soldered up. Red wire goes to R_OUT, other wire goes to L_OUT, and brown wire goes to CD_GND. I used CD_GND instead of S_GND because it was in a convenient location for easy soldering.


The other end of these 3 wires are soldered to a 1/8" jack from some borken electronics.


It was a snug fit through the pie hole. :D


Something like 200 screws on this thing. Honestly. I used audacity to make a silent CD while reassembling, cause it took me like half an hour to find all the screws.


I use the silent CD when listening to the auxiliary. Sounds great!

the clock is a common problem in the 2.0l its the cold soder cracking in it that causes it to stop working.


great write up by the way. do you mind if i repost this on aeriostyle.com?

millssongs, my thoughts? I think you should take it apart, clean it, and put it back together. Throw in a "fix the thing that looks most borken" after the cleaning step, and your stereo and clock might even work again. It will probably be worth your time either way.

Devilsword, feel free to link to this post anywhere. reposting is also ok by me, but replies in this thread are preferable.

Great writeup Chully! I think I will try this one myself. Ironically my radio has no sound on the right side at all - sounds just fine on the left - probably same issue as yours. Have you thought about trying to replace that suspicious capacitor or otherwise repair the sound problem?

I am wondering if this is possible on 2005 Aerio Mitsubishi Radio. It seems that the 2005 is in between this Calrion and the 2006 Mitsubishi radios. On the 2006 I guess there is a connector under the glove box where you can patch a Aux in cable. Which sucks cause the 05 and 06 radios look the same other then the function button says "CD/Aux" on 06 and just "CD'" on 05.
