You have a cassette player, get the tape adapter and be done with it.

I think the quality of those were great

The factory-style AUX adapter for plugin to the back of the radio would work just the same as CD-radio, but those are $40-100 plus install and the tape with a wire hanging out of your dash is under $5. #BeaterEconomics

This is an excellent point. We're not dealing with audiophile equipment here, it's an iPod/iPhone and a stock radio, and probably stock speakers. Lossy mp3s, crappy hardware in the car, who's going to notice any difference?

I have the tape adapter but it keeps ejecting it on me. I have tried cleaning the tape deck and it still does it. That's why i wondered if there was another way Confused

Aftermarket radio install is the cheapest real fix. Stock radios need activation ($100+) so it's bad beater economics to install a replacement stock radio. A house brand radio with USB can be as little as $25, plus a few bucks for a harness, antenna adapter and mounting kit. You'll be in it for under the price of your back of the radio adapter.

I bought one of these for my Intrigue when the stereo quit in it. http://www.amazon.com/612UA-MP.....mp3+player

For something dirt cheap, it worked well.

I found and tried this with no success, but I used 16 gauge wiring and then tried the thin wiring that I cut from my old stock cd player.. it calls for networking/cat5 wire

any wire will work does not need to be cat 5. 16 gauge is a tad overkill. but will work.

If cassette is ejecting this will not work. tape needs to be in and playing when using the aux, as in the Ls1 link u have the cd needs to be in and playing for aux to work. Cool

Any suggestions on a good quality headunit ( most bang for the buck) with an aux. under 300.00? i would like a headunit with a screen double din since I don't like the way a single din looks when the screen comes up. I would like BOSS or something like that but how good are they? ive always used JVC or Jenson . I do want to upgrade the door speakers to Pioneer, and the 6x 9s i have are Pioneer so those are good.

Thank you Cool

I recommended the 6in Pioneer AppRadio to another guy and I'll suggest it to you too. I see a lot of them in my business, users are always happy with them, and you can get the 6in screen model for $300.

You can go to like a electronics store and they sell these little radio transmitters basically you hook it up to your iPod/phone or anything with a headphone jack and you create a station with the little transmitter and it will play your songs like its own personal radio station. That's the cheapest way to go with no hassle. The prices vary from $20 up to $60 but a simple cheap one will do the job. No instillation required.

I have the cassette adapter works fine but when i first got it IIRC there was a setting in the radio that wont eject the adapter. Because the radio thinks the tape is wrapped to tight and with a setting change it wont eject i recommend checking the owners manual for radio settings.
