Auxilary port
 
I just picked up an adapter that takes the CD Changer port on the radio and make an auxiliary port. The adapter would not power up. I did check voltage coming out of the changer on two of the wires, which I though should have voltage (because of the colors) and they did have power.

Would that make you think that I got a bad adapter? Or what are the chances that the CD Changer port on the radio could be bad?

Alot of times the ports only work on certain things..Its strange but thats how chrysler made it..What do you need a aux for?

Using it to connect an mp3 player.

Are the radios in all the from 04-06 the same?

Should be the same but idk...The best way to get a mp3 or ipod to play is to just swap out the radio that ither has a front aux or a ipod connection on the back..It would sound a whole lot better and also it would be easier..U can get a good radio from best buy for like $99

I would rather keep the factory radio. It's easy to install, I think I just got a bum adapter.

I wonder why the adaptor has to"power up" ? I've purchased CD Changer- AUX adaptors on 3 different vehicles, and all of them did not require power... check out RCAinput.com, they might have a non-powered, better solution...
