    I have a Toyota Tacoma 1998 with Stock radio/cassette I have been using the Cassette with the audio jack attached to it. I want to add an 3mm jack to it so I can use my iPod/MP3 Player with it.

    I found this http://www.mattgilbert.net/carstereoauxinput/ which is a DIY of how to add it but my situation is that i do not have a CD deck with it. I took it apart and what i have is a port for the CD Drive but nothing plugged in back there.
    I guess my main problem is that i would like to add a Auxiliary jack to be able to press the CD Button on the Deck and just switch it to be the in put for the iPod.

    this is what i am planing on using.

    Sorry it's been a whole since I checked on this. From what I understand it uses a switch on the radio just like the fm, am, tape and cd. I was planning on trying to use the cd one since that is what I would be inputting the audio through. From the other guide the guy has a cd deck which the wires plug in the back. I just don't know how to bypass that. I don't have the cd deck. I can purchase the harness(?) online but it would help if there was some other way.

    Thanks
