Has anyone tried this on the 1st gen? I can't seem to find any data on this anywhere.
As I type this, my truck is sitting outside with the center dash pulled apart. I found similar contact points on the bottom board of the CD player. Wired in my 3.5mm input cable and plugged everything back in just enough to test it.
Good news is that the head unit still works like it's supposed to (I didn't screw it up, yet). Bad news is that when I plug in my phone playing music, it just adds noise to the CD that is playing but the phone's music is still playing through the phone's speaker. Like it's not even trying to push it through the cable.
So close here, just need a little input. (no pun intended)
...I'm posting this anyway but the thought went through my head that perhaps my ground wasn't as good as I thought it was. I got over zealous to test it out. I'm sure my cable ground to the deck chassis is fine but I didn't bolt the deck to the dash, therefore not grounding it properly. BRB...
