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

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).
