Stock Stereo Aux Adapter
 
I have an 05 ZX4 with the 6 disk CD changer stock stereo it has the AUX Button and when pressed it states no aux..

I stopped by a local car audio place and they want $150 for the adapter.

What part do I need and where can I find it for less?

How hard is it to install ?

you need a PIE adapter I believe...same thing I need.

Can be found on amazon or directly from PIE themselves. Mine is like $100 or something. To install it has to go behind the stock stereo so you have to take yours out, plug it in and you have to splice into a power wire I think.

The part is expensive, to the point of adding an aux to the stock head unit is not worth it imo. You can get a pretty decent after market HU with aux built in that will sound better than your stock one for the same price. Not to mention there are some pretty sweet double din size after market units out there for not too much more money.

It's worth it if your stock stereo suffices and you just want iPod functionality.

I have the audiophile system in mine and its fantastic! I'm satisfied with its performance. I just want aux.

I am happy with stock.. I just want the option for the ipod.

Speaking of the audiophile system.. how do you know if you have it or not ?
