It works!

Well, everything is working as it should!

It took a long time, but I was finally able to gather all the correct pieces, and I now have a functioning AUX port on my 2003 Focus. Sweet!

I ended up using the FRDW-AUX that I showed in the picture, along with this harness. I have a lot of extra cable, but that's okay.

For now everything is just sitting in my glove box. I haven't had time to actually mount anything yet. But, it works, and for now, that's all I need.

Thanks again jay-rod05! Without your video I wouldn't have believed that this was possible.

mew1033 Sure.

Here are the rest of the pictures: http://imgur.com/a/C8mVT#14yig

So I called PIE and I got a little more information. The guy I talked to (Frank, one of their Engineers) said that they have two versions of this product. There is a DpX version, and a DpX+ version. It's the DpX+ that has the removable harness. Frank also told me that their factory had run out of stock on the DpX+ version, so they were currently shipping the DpX version. He said that until the DpX version runs out, they weren't going to get more of the DpX+.

I had contacted Discount Car Stereo about the problem to see if they had any of the DpX+ versions laying around. They didn't, but they were able to direct me to something that will work. They call it the FRDW-HAR. Very similar to the FRDB-HAR that you recommend in your video. It connects the radio HU to the 12-pin ford connector on the FRDW-AUX. That way you can use either version. I bought that and it should be arriving in a few days. I'll be sure to let you know how it works.

Thanks again for all the research you did for this project, as well as your great video!

Any ideas?
Can you post a picture of what your module looks like. I've never seen one that doesn't have the 10 pin molex cable.

VIDEO: Finally got Auxiliary input working on Stock Blaupunkt Ford Focus Radio

After almost of month of piecing together bits and pieces of threads from all over I finally got my Blaupunkt factory radio to have AUX input capability! No one has ever made a video confirming or showing how so I finally did to help save others the frustration and trouble I had to go through.

YouTube Video

Enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
