TJ Aux Input Adapter Install

2004 Jeep Wrangler with a factory radio, I'm adding an Audio Auxiliary Input Adapter. The plug in is easy enough, utilizing the CD Changer 10-pin connector. The issue comes in with the power wire. The directions only state, "Connect to 12 volt power source."

If possible can any supply a picture and show me where and how to put this wire in?

You can splice it to the wire leading to the aux power port (cigarette lighter) receptacle. The 2004 has one switched port and one always-on port, connect it to the switched port.

There's a similar (a better choice) switched power lead going to the factory radio which could be used after being located with a 12v test light available in any well stocked auto parts store. They have a sharp point that can probe the various red wires until you find the one that turns on & off with the ignition switch.

Just to be sure i'm understanding the concept of "splicing"

Would I be taking a wire out of a connector and twisting the wire supplied with the aux adapter together?

If so, could i pull the constant power source wire out of the radio and splice into that one? I have diagrams showing a "red & white" wire as the constant 12 v power supply for the radio.

It'd be better to splice it into a switched power lead, not one that has constant power on it. The more things that are powered on constantly, the more apt you are to find a dead battery if you have to park the Jeep without staring it for a while. Conventional batteries never fully recover when they are completely drained dead.

Here are some great sources including videos that explain splicing in fewer words than I would require... https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q...wires+in+a+car
