Overview: DPX Auxiliary input converters by PIE (Precision
Interface Electronics) are designed to convert the CD Changer port of the OEM radio
(with CD Changer controls) into an auxiliary input. Devices such as Satellite Radios,
DVD Players, VCRs, MP3 Players, and Game Systems can be added the the OEM radio
without an FM Modulator. DPX Technology maintains full function of all factory
steering wheel and rear seat controls.
Compatibility: The GM12-AUXv2 allows you to add an auxiliary
input to the factory radio in select General Motors vehicles. The adapter plugs
into the factory system using the supplied cable. Please, use the Crutchfield Car
Selector to determine if this adapter is compatible with your vehicle.
CD Changer/XM Radio: In nearly all cases the factory CD Changer,
XM Radio, or rear seat entertainment system (when present) will work in combination
with this auxiliary input adapter.
Mounting: The adapter can be secured to any flat surface.
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 a 12-pin plug which connects to the factory
radio. The included cable also has a third plug to accept the harness previously
plugged into this 12-pin jack on the factory radio. In addition the OEM style
harnesses, there are two individual wires that must be connected to constant 12
volts and ground respectively.
