Note: If so equipped, you will have to disconnect the satellite radio or Vehicle Entertainment System (VES) in your vehicle to install this adapter. If you haven't already, please enter your vehicle information or call a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000 to find out if this adapter is compatible with your vehicle.

Works great! I did have to reset it once, after about 6 weeks (meaning I had to take apart the dash to disconnect the unit for a minute, then plug it back in and put everything back together), but hopefully that was a one time fluke.

Features

Overview: The PAC AAi-CHY Audio Input Interface allows direct input of any preamp level audio source to select Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep factory radios. The AAi-CHY interface features two stereo RCA inputs so you can input sources such as DVD, VCP, MP3 satellite or video games. The factory radio allows you to switch between inputs.

Note: This interface only supports audio playback of your external portable device. The interface does not allow for any control of the auxiliary sources you have connected.

Compatibility: The AAi-CHY Auxiliary Audio Input Interface supports select 2005 and up Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep factory radios. The AAi-CHY is compatible with the following factory radio models - REC, REF, RAQ and RAK. The Audio Input Interface works with or without factory installed satellite radio by emulating factory VES (Video Entertainment System). If your vehicle has both factory satellite radio and VES (Video Entertainment System) one of them must be disconnected at the device. This interface will emulate the device that is disconnected. If your factory radio has a single disc CD and satellite radio (REF model), the factory satellite receiver must be disconnected.

Installation: The factory radio must be removed and the AAi-CHY interface plugs into the back of the factory radio. The AAi-CHY plugs into either the satellite radio or VES input, depending on which one is not in use or which one you want to disconnect. The interface features two pairs of stereo RCA inputs for connecting your external portable audio sources.

Level Control: The AAi-CHY is equipped with gain controls on top of the interface to allow you to adjust the audio level of your sources connected to the factory radio to match the output level of your vehicle's factory sources.

Why did you buy this?

I bought this to add in aux capability to my REC radio with NAV [ Curtis  Apr 04, 2017 ]
Did not want to replace radio and factory bezel. [ Calvin  Mar 10, 2017 ]
need an aux input [ Benjamin  Dec 24, 2016 ]
Least intrusive way to add an auxiliary input to the factory audio system [ Wesley  Sep 01, 2016 ]
I chose this product because my 05 magnum doesn't have an aux input and while researching for a solution on this product was the best fit. [ Sergio  May 07, 2016 ]
I wasn't looking to replace the radio in my Chrysler 300, but I wanted auxiliary input jacks to plug in external devices. This was an extremely simple way to accomplish what I was looking for. Simply slide the radio forward, plug this unit in, and run the RCA jacks to the glove box or wherever. [ Jason  Mar 08, 2016 ]
My daughter wanted to keep her original (factory) stereo system in her Jeep but needed to play music from her iphone. This adapter solved that issue. [ KEVIN L  Mar 03, 2016 ]
My factory radio does not have an aux input because in 2005 the iPhone did not exist so there was no need to have one. This will enable me to play music from my phone through the car's stereo [ Ian  Feb 05, 2016 ]
Replaced factory stereo twin stolen both times. Keeping original and adding this to listen to Ipod [ JEFF  Jan 07, 2016 ]
Wanted to install an aux input in my car cheaply, and without interfering with the steering controls. Installing an aftermarket deck would've been too expensive with the interface for the steering controls. [ Chris  Dec 22, 2015 ]

No. The AAi-CHY is an auxiliary audio input and does not provide a video connection. [ Ryan  May 20, 2017 ]  Staff
