I have a sirius that I want to install with out all the wires showing. I've put the antena under the clading and run it down the A piller I realy want to install it by tapping into the aux behind the dash so that the plug is open for the wife to plug in her I pod into. I also want to tap into the power suply and let the convertor stay behind the dash. but reading on the subject (all morning). I'm confused as what is the best method the pie ($$$) or tap into the aux :?

the pie adaptor would be the best route (or anyone that makes a similar adaptor) or you could tap both power and the aux in at the back of the radio

Another option is to pick up a spare aux jack. Unplug the existing one and plug the new one in behind the dash. This way you can plug in your sirious unit and not have the wires showing.

I think that I read something about using a splitter , but the aux has extra wires to the plug that act as a sensor for the radio to know that something hsa been pluged in, do i need to worrie about this when installing a splitter. and should I insolate the aux that will no be behind the dash with eletrical tape or back to the splice has anyone tryed it??

there is an aux ground and an aux det(ect) wire that have to be shorted together for the radio to see the input. then there is a aux left, right, and "sground" that are what they sound like, left right and shield of an aux/mini jack. they should be soldered together and good tape like 3m super 33+

and yes it has been done, i just did it on a 2010 insight yesterday and a 2009 crv last week, same concept.

...except for the power, I installed Y aux's in my dash. But I seem to remember one someone made a pigtail splitter for the aux off the back of the radio.


Edit: I don't know if this works for an '03 but this part may help: 39117-SWA-A00

It's in and looks great I spliced into the back of the aux and spliced into the back of the power outlet. I put that down in back of the dash close to the cabin filters and wire tied it in a way that it wont bounce and come apart. I put the antena under the clading on the driver side ran it through the engin compartment on the fire wall then under the plastic panel on the pasenger side and into the same inlet as the wires for the passenger side door window and up into the dash. looking at many threads and getting the help from the great people here at the E.O.C. has made it possible for me to do this mod. Looking to the next mod. Thanks everyone 8) Now as soon as I get a camera I can get some pics

so, are there any how-to's or pictures available for this?

I'd like to use the back of the AUX for my satellite and still have the front part open for ipod, like yourself.

How'd you get to the back of the port? Does it just pop out from the dash?

If I don't care about auto-detection when using the front port (i can just push the button manually) then can I just buy a cheapo Y-adaptor?
