Auxillyary Input Radio Adapter

Auxillyary Input Radio Adapter

Postby edserrano [OP] » February 24th 2008, 1:48am

I'm about to install an auxiliary input adapter for the radio in my 2000 Astro. The unit is a Pie GM9-AUX.
Has anybody installed and used this adapter? Also, any tips on removing the radio would be great. I do not have my manual and do not know the radio code should I need it. Would this be an issue when installing this gizmo?
Thanks,

Eddie S.

i would like to add one of the devices to my stock '03 Cd/Radio that will take input, charge, and control an IPOD.

the previous poster also asked about it wihth no response. has anyone done this? if so, please help.

i also would like to do so to a '08 pontiac vibe. there is a lot of chatter about this on the vibe web site, none on astro site. anyone :confused:

perhaps because it is cost effective to just change head units?

anyone?

Sorry for digging up and old post but I discussed this on the old board with one important issue.

There is a ground loop problem with the GM9-AUX on most all Astros. You will get horrible alternator whine and popping.

The fix??

Pull the ground wire that goes from the factory radio harness to the doghouse. Re-route a ground wire from a good location to the doghouse and cap off the ground you pulled.

Took me a month to stumble onto this one. I called both the manufacturer and the place I bought it from as they were totally baffled.

I was able to just reach up and pop the connector for the 9-aux in my Astro, cut a few fingers but it was easier than popping off all the dash plastic. Just pop out the glove box/cup holder thing and you should be able to get to everything
