Figure 1 - Radio from Ford / Nissan

If you have a radio like the one pictured above and would like to add a direct connection for an iPod, MP3 player, satellite Radio receiver, etc., then we have the solution for you. 

Here is what you will need...


Figure 2 - Adaptor - Axxess Model AIP-FD20-20

I've been using this set up for over a year and I love it. I actually bought my adaptor at Circuit City when they were still an actual store, but now with their absence, I see that you can still order the adaptor online from various locations...just Google "AIP-FD20-ID" and you will get a list of sources. The prices range from about $25 on Ebay to as high as $110...find a place you are comfortable with ordering from, and go from there.  I gave about $70 back at Circuit City when they had their stores...so that should give you a realistic price point to shot from.

If you bought one of these Axxess adaptors and had it "professionally" installed by Circuit City and now you don't have steering wheel controls (and they probably said you can't have both), then these are the instructions to use to get your steering wheel controls functional again AND have your iPod / Aux adaptor (You'll only need the item #4 pictured below, in Figure 3, a small jeweler's screwdriver).

 


Figure 3 - Tools Needed for the Job

1. DIN Removal Tools (Available at most auto parts stores or Wal-Mart for about $4-$8...or see the instructions available at www.shareamemory.com/radio/removal.htm on how to remove the radio from the dash)
 2. 7mm Nut Driver
 3. Electrical Tape
 4. Small Jeweler's screwdriver
 5. Scissors
 

With the above tools and the adaptor, all you will need is the instructions.  These are the most complete and detailed instructions to date...you should enjoy the complete step by step pictures and the added details of how to work with one of the connectors so that you will have steering wheel controls (if you already have that functionality).  This instructions won't disappoint you with their detail and ease.

If you have had one of these Axxess Adaptors installed by a "professional" and lost the use your steering wheel controls, you will want these instructions to get you back with your steering wheel controls.

If you are aching to play your iPod or MP3 player in your vehicle with a static laden FM modulator, then these step by step instructions with detailed pictures will walk you through the complete installation.
