    hmmm it might be in the book... but i'd just pull the sucker out. Although if you don't have an AUX option on your deck then you don't have an AUX output...I'd just get a new Pioneer deck for like $180ish that play MP3/WMAs :big grin: and has an AUX...

    If you can plug in a cd changer then there is probably a company that makes a cable/interface to hook your ipod up to it (I know they make them for other cars) however when I looked last time they weren't cheap.

    The cheapest option would be to get an FM modulator.

    FM Modulator? I agree however every person is different and for some it is an acceptable option.

    If you mean the CD Changer hook up would sound like shit, you would be wrong, but I don't think that is what you mean.

    I did a custom mod job where I hacked open a stereo, and attached some wires directly to where the line level signal gets fed into the poweramp portion. Mounted some RCA's through the dash, with a little on/off toggle. Worked out great, but isn't exactly easy....but if you know what you're doin, pokin' around in the guts, it'd be a great and cheap way to go.
