Just a side note. If you pull the vents above the radio you have much better access to the back of the radio and plus. You don't have to pull on the wires.
Thanks, i already pull out everything and check every wire and plug and everything looks good. But still not working
Update:
The panel still dont working but, if i pull out the cd and return the sound working and the control from the srearing wheel as well

Aux cord

I assumed it would work, and i plugged it in and nothing happened. No aux setting on any button on the radio, so ill just spend the money buying a good one instead of going off ebay to have it shipped from CHINA and wait 2 weeks for nothing..........

Read the instructions. Some of those adaptors want a paticular file size/layout.

I went with this unit:

The iSimple IS31 was $24 and creates a set of RCA outputs, so you just have to get any RCA to >>> whatever adapter you want. So for $2.50 I bought a RCA to 3.5mm male plug that was 6 feet long. it runs off of the antenna port and comes with a switch to swap from antenna/radio to this unit. There is no static on this and I just plug my cell phone in whenever I want since I can control the equilizer from there and it has a shuffle mode
Hey I have the same firmware as you and I'm installing my iSimple kit right now... What wires did you splice the 12v ignition wire to? I'm assuming you spliced the ground to the black wire, but if not what did you connect it to? Thanks!

I know that. I mean what are the file names and directory structure on the USB flash drive to make it work?

version

Before buying it, did you check the version of your radio to see if it was compatible? You press the "text/audio" button and press the number "1" and it should tell you. If the version is old, then the aux cable won't work.

KickerFox: I have the USB option on my aux cable, I believe you press "3" for "RPT" and it should switch it onto the USB but i have not tried it because i always use my iphone for music

You need to follow this instructions: http://www.whatsmyip.org/lib/rx8-aux-ipod-input/?page=end

Then, take the ebay cable and cut off the white connector leaving only 3 wires: red, white and yellow. Solder the yellow cable to the "R" on the radio green card. The white cable to the "L" and the yellow cable to the "G".

Burn a Silence CD (not blank) and load into the cd player. Play that CD and connect tge 3.5mm auxiliary jack (male or female connector) to your phone or iPod and enjoy the music.
