Hey ya'll, It looks like Im going to go with a portable setup for SIRIUS radio for now. Couple of questions;

1. How do I remove the radio in an '05.
2. Is the AUX input in the back of the radio?
3. Does the plastic around the radio remove easy? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif

I appreciate any help

I have been investigating this issue (aux input on 05' 6 disc stock radio) for 6 months now. I have talked to P.I.E. and one other after market AUX input maker and both have said that they are working on AUX Input adapters but do not have a launch date as of yet. I did finally get to talk to a Ford accessories tech on monday and he was able to clear up all my confusion.

The extra connector on the back of the 05' 6-disk radio made by Pioneer is a future DVD input. As of right now there is no DVD unit made for this unit, again this was done for future use. The tech said that there is not even a cable connector available to plug into that spot.

I guess we have to hold tight and suffer FM broadcast for our XM untill P.I.E. comes out with an adapter.

Wow...good info here, just not so clear on the DVD input- what kind of plug is it? RCA-type? Do you have a pic? If it is an RCA type, there's our hookup!!

That's exactly what I'm looking hookup the XM...if there's any kind of plug, then I think I can make it work.

If not, I threw that FM modulator away- it's a piece of crap around here- can't get a clear signal at all.

Thanks for the info...I think I might see about taking it to a Car Stereo place and see if they've got a hardwire Kit for the XM...I'll keep looking here to see if anything else has surfaced...

Thanks again.
Hi Guys:

Just found where the new adapter is going to be ready in September in another Forum here.... try looking over at the PIE Forum Page - FRD04-AUX Adapter for some additional info.
