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.
FRDR-AUX allows you to add an auxiliary input to the factory radio in select
Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles. The adapter plugs into the factory system using the supplied
cable, avoiding wire splicing and modifications.
Note: The adapter takes the place of the CD changer, so you cannot
have a CD changer and the adapter connected to your factory radio at the same
Connections: The adapter has two RCA (left and right
audio) inputs on one side. You'll need an audio cable (sold separately) to
connect your audio source to the RCA inputs of this adapter. 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
harness which connects into the OEM Tuner/Amplifier module (location of which
varies by vehicle). There is also a set of jumper harnesses attached to the
included cable that are inserted between the Tuner/amp and the cable run from
the radio in the dash.
Note: Please take note of the length of cable you'll need,
particularly if the adapter will be trunk mounted & your audio source near
the front of the vehicle.
Mounting: The adapter can be
secured to any flat surface.
