arlenn This is my hack, very similar to above...

1x 5V switching DC-DC converter:
1x Cigarette lighter replacement:
Heat shrink, varous sizes
2x male 1/4 push terminals

I was also incorporating a PAC line in box so actual process will vary.

Cut the USB terminal off the BOSS audio at the desired length, relatively short. Using your DMM determine pin-out. (Red +5v, Black 0v, Blue chassis GND). Tie back the data lines.

Splice into the output of the DC-DC, make connections as you wish (there is still much debate over crimp vs. solder). Terminate the 12v side of the DC-DC with the male push terminals.


I also incorporated a PAC Audio line in box, and made the same also connected that the cigarette lighter circuit. Using push terminal piggy backs.

** reduce the ligher fuse to 5A ** Do not keep the stock 20A.

djcook For those of you that are having trouble like me trying to figure out just how to cut and solder the cut USP wires to the Juke USB Interface (wiring pictures are missing) I have done some search and found this little jewel:

Looking at the pictures it looks like it will work but I have an email in to the installer Tech Dept to make 100% sure. Once I hear word back I'll follow up on this post.

PS: If you cannot use RCA jacks and need a 3.5MM for the AUX connection then then have a look at this:

USP Wiring...Help


GREAT POST!! Only issue is that the two phots below do not show. I have my USB/AUX port and I am ready to install but for the life of me I cannot figure out where to solder the USB wiring. Can you repost?

4. Solder the wires:

No pics

Unfortunately, the pics do not show for where to wire into the juke plug. Does anyone else have alternate links so I know how to wire this in? Also can the USB 5v just be powered by a 12v source?

On my setup all it does is provide USB power. The way it's wired it provides full USB connectivity, If I plugged in the male end into a computer and an iPod cable into the female port then I could do full data transfer.

If your head unit has the ability to connect an iPhone via USB cable, then you should have no issue doing so via this connector.
