06 Aux interface

What fun I had yesterday! I must say, it wasn't as easy as I expected considering years ago I used to fit car stereos and fix electrical issues.

I finally got all the panels off and got to the head unit to plug the aux in (20m). I got one of these kits from Amazon and it didn't work... Grrrr...




All that to find out it was faulty! Well I took it all out and put everything back to where it should be. My tip is to be patient as it was a bit harder putting back then taking it apart. I did snap one clip in the process but it's thankfully ok!

After doing a bit more research on the options there are, I've opted for a different bit of kit. It's a bit more expensive but I think it will be worth it.

I think it will be worth the extra but I'll keep you posted.

NOTE: Top tip, get a panel tool. You can get them fairly cheap. I'm not sure if Halfords do them but if not, Amazon do a set. Don't just go in there with screw drivers or you'll do damage to your panels. I've seen some nasty ones on YouTube!

I agree about being a pain to take panels off but if you take your time and use the right tools you will get there.

I used this kit from connects2 :

Connects2 CTVHOX002 Honda Accord, Civic, Jazz, S2000 Aux Interface Adaptor

All i wanted was an aux in for phone and spotify and works seamlessly, and this kit comes supplied with y cable too for sat nav versions.

Not trying to be a smart-ass, but you did press the mode button on the steering wheel to get the aux device working?

This is why I don't take the panels off or remove the stereo, easier to reach in from underneath once you remove the centre console.
