    I am trying to find the wiring for the aux connector. I would like to use it for an iPhone connection port on the radio.

    Bill, you will need an automotive auxiliary input adapter. This adapter will allow you to input any mp3 player or portable music player into your factory radio. This is the easiest and most cost effective way to add an audio input into your factory stereo. Here is the adapter you will need:

    I am trying to find a switched lead to power my XM radio receiver. I currently have it attached to the power takeoff which is not switched. This is on a 2005 Ford Explorer.

    Charles, run a primary wire to your steering column and use the brown wire in the ignition switch harness. This brown wire will provide you with a switched power source. We suggest you invest in some solid wire taps that wont come loose. These wire tap connectors will allow you to tap into wires without cutting and installs in seconds by hand with no crimping or tools required. If you’ve never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2005 Ford Explorer stereo installation.
