OEM Stereo AUX in on CD Changer line?

Anybody have a schematic for the original Stilo CD stereo?


Is it possible to trick it into thinking there's a CD changer attached and feed audio, eg from and MP3 player, down the changer input channel?

Re: OEM Stereo AUX in on CD Changer line?

There are certain gadgets doing that. Try to look for Loudlink or Xcarlink on the net.
I think there are aux pins inside the Visteon (on the PCB) which you can use but you ll have to put a CD with one "silent" track in. I remember some guy mention that in here but I can't find the post...

I can't believe that nobody has take the pinouts and worked out how to get a line in on the cd changer line? Does anyone have a pinout diagram?

I can't believe it too!!! I'm looking for an answer to this question for last 2 years!!! Looks like no one has this diagram... I have tried some solutions with cables and resistors but non of them worked.

Please contact me if you find any solution.

Re: OEM Stereo AUX in on CD Changer line?

I looked into doing that as there's a few threads on here about it. It is possible but not worth the effort.

I decided to do this instead.

Re: OEM Stereo AUX in on CD Changer line?

Is the Stilo changer a Blaupunkt?
Also, it says on the listing "Only work with aftermarket Blaupunkt. May not work with Factory Blaupunkt car stereo. (i.e Factory Blaupunkt on ALFA) Please make sure about compatibility before buying."
Please let us know if it works!

Re: OEM Stereo AUX in on CD Changer line?

The blue plug looks identical to the one on the CD interchanger, if the 3.5mm jack is wired to the correct pins I see no reason why it shouldn't work.

How does the head unit switch over to some how to use that input, when it detects something being input or is it done manually?

Re: OEM Stereo AUX in on CD Changer line?

Problem is that the head unit needs to identtify that there's a changer there, so just connecting the audio channels won't work. It needs some sort of signal pin setting, which is what we don't know...

Re: OEM Stereo AUX in on CD Changer line?

There is a pin out diagram on the forum somewhere, I've seen it a few times just can't find it now I actually want it.

Edit.
Still cant find it on the forum but I found this in my FF Junk folder.



1 Pre Out Rear Left
2 Pre Out Rear Right
3 Pre Out Ground
4 Pre Out Front Left
5 Pre Out Front Right
6 Amp Switch +12v
7 Telephone In +
8 Telephone In -
9 Radio Mute
10 Switch Supply +12v
11 Remote Control
12 RC Ground
13 Cd Changer Data In
14 Cd Changer Data Out
15 Permanent 12v
16 Switched 12v
17 Bus Ground
18 Aux In Ground
19 Aux In Left
20 Aux In Right

18, 19 and 20 are what the 3.5mm jack is wired to so something from 13 to 17 may be the signal pin. 13 and 14 maybe?

Re: OEM Stereo AUX in on CD Changer line?

They should work. You should be able to get one that connects to an iPod line out dock and some even come with a power cable so it will charge it too.

Re: OEM Stereo AUX in on CD Changer line?

A similar ebay listing states:
[I]Not compatible with radios including:
Blaupunkt factory-fitted head units (the cable may plug into the rear of the radio, but will not be recognised)[/I
]
I'd love it to work, but I'm happy(ish) with my existing solution...

Re: OEM Stereo AUX in on CD Changer line?

This cable is only adapter from 3.5mm stereo connector to CD changer connector. On this connector you have only 3 pins (aux left, aux right and aux gnd). I suppose that it will not work with only this cable. The headunit must be switched to Aux input. On front button you can only switch between CD and Tuner. On aftermarket headunits you can choose between CD, Tuner, Aux etc. I suppose that this Visteon headunit must be swithed with some signal on the some pin on the backside connector. The question is which pin and what kind of signal?

Don't waist your money... I have tried... It's not working!!! When you connect it to car stereo, you need to switch to CD input, as much as you press "source" button it still goes only between RADIO and TAPE.

Re: OEM Stereo AUX in on CD Changer line?

I know that. HU probably must be switched on some pin on connector on back side of HU.
