Our take on the P.I.E. Auxiliary Input Adapter for Honda

by Zak Billmeier

You want to add an auxiliary input to the factory stereo in your Acura or Honda, but you've been told by the dealer that it'll be expensive. Nonsense! Hook up this handy adapter, and you can connect an iPod®, Dock & Play satellite radio, or another portable player — and save a bundle of cash in the process.

Just connect the HON03-AUX to your factory radio's 14-pin connector in the back — then you can configure the adapter to work with either the CD changer or satellite radio controls. You'll get a pair or left/right RCA inputs, and you won't have to give up the factory options you paid for.

Please enter your vehicle information or call an Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this adapter is compatible with your vehicle.

Features

Overview: The DPX Honda Auxiliary Input Converter module (HON03-AUX) converts the 14-pin Satellite Radio or CD-changer port of your Factory (OEM) Honda /Acura radio to RCA level audio input. The HON03-AUX lets you retain your Satellite Radio tuner or CD-changer, as well as other factory installed accessories, such as navigation and rear-seat entertainment.

Note: Please consult the Crutchfield Car Selector to see if your vehicle is compatible.

Vehicle Compatibility: The DPX HON-AUX allows you to add an auxiliary input to the factory radio in select 2003-2011 Honda/Acura vehicles. The adapter plugs into the factory system using the supplied cable, avoiding wire splicing and modifications. The HON03-AUX is compatible with the following Honda/Acura vehicles (as of February 2011).

Mounting: The module has integrated mounting flanges with screw holes. This interface module can be secured to any flat surface with optional mounting screws, velcro, or two-sided tape.

Connections: The adapter has two RCA (left and right audio) inputs on one side. On the other side of the adapter is a rectangular 10-pin jack that interfaces with the supplied cable. The adapter end of the cable has the 10-pin plug and the other end has two rectangular 14-pin connectors which plug into the factory radio and the factory Satellite Radio tuner or CD-changer.

Note: Some Honda/Acura factory radios are coded protected. Verify that the code is available before disconnecting the battery.

Used it to install an AUX jack in my '07 Accord

Written By Austin M, Houston, TX on Saturday, March 03, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I searched online to find a simple solution on how to install a AUX jack in my Accord. The first link I came across was to a message board gave step-by-step instructions on how to do it. So I ordered the PIE Aux adapter and a 1/8" Audio Jack from a marine/boating store (online) and went at it. The install only took about 45 minutes and then all the sudden I had a AUX jack in my Accord. For instructions on how to install it go to: honda-tech(dot)com/showthread.php?t=2793945 -- In that thread the author gives detailed step-by-step instructions on how to install this product, I found it Very helpful and it took no time to complete.
Pros:
It allows you to hook up a multi-disk changer, and/or it has analog (Left/Right) audio inputs allowing you to hook up a MP3/Ipod via a 1/8" AUX jack. In my case, keeping the factory head unit in the car was important because I want to prevent people being tempted to break into my car because of a custom head unit
Cons:
none

P.I.E. Auxiliary Input Adapter for Honda

Written By Gregk, Ohio on Sunday, January 22, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The item works exactly as it should, a great way to add an mp3 player to the factory radio. I did have to cut a hole in the compartment to allow the wires to pass through, but this gave it a much cleaner look.

works as designed

Written By JohnP, Bayarea, CA on Monday, June 13, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The product works great, especially with the extra extension cable included in the package. A little improvement can be to include a piece of adherence tape inside the package, I guess no many people want to drill 4 holes in the crampy space where car audio is located.
