AUX Cable added (iPac-CHY) - WK
 
I installed the PAC iPac-CHY iPod interface adapter a month ago, but didn't like the fact that the iPod is always being charged and that the screen would stay lit even when the vehicle was shut off. This will greatly reduce the life of the Ipod and that just ain't cool with me. So, at the cost of losing steering wheel controls (and the charging feature). I decided to utilize the addition input that the CHY has and that is a basic left and right channel stereo input.

Supplies:

  • PAC iPac-CHY
  • KnuKonceptz Krystal Stereo Y-adapter Cable
  • Heat shrink
  • Techflex (expandable sleeving)
Having already installed the CHY, all I had to do was pull the CHY's stereo input, Techflex the Knu cable, connect the Knu cable, drill/dremel a whole in the AC interface panel, and slightly dremel (bore out) the hole in the iPods case for the Knu plug.

Damn, that sucks.

Was it the main box that kept crapping out? The CHY-->iPod cable started giving me problems in the last week or so - it would just randomly start playing only from one side of the vehicle. It was an issue with the cable though, I could wiggle it and it would come back to all the speakers. Another reason I added the AUX cable.

I had the CHY Ipod cable, the first one they said had a short in the box, the second one they never told me what was up just gave me a store credit and thats when i got my Kenwood deck.

The first unit would not work at all. The second unit would work just fine then one day it just stopped working. So thats when i gave up on the stock head unit since i do not have nav.

Ah, I gotcha. Well at least in the end you've got an AUX input, lol :)

I needed it that day and bought it from a local dealer for $100. They typically run $120 (MSRP), but I think you can get them from buy.com for $88 shipped!
