Take your RCA-Mini cable, and cut the RCA end... "NOT" the mini end/headphone 3.5mm jack.

Strip the wires, left and right will have a negative/ground wire wrapped around another shielded wire in a colored loom. The shielded is your positive.

Twist the two negtive/ground wires together, making one lead approx. 1 inch long.

Also twist the two Positive wires together so that you end up with a stripped wire lead of approx .5 inches.



In the pic... I'm showing the end you shoul've cut off.

Connect positive leads to the AF+ line of the radio. It's the Blue/Black wire. Solder and tape these.

Solder Negative leads to the AF- Line... or Solid blue line



Tape up all the negative wiring, also wrapping the previously taped positive leads with the same tape strip.



Again... if you see the RCA end on the end of your line... as in the pic... YOU DID IT WRONG!!! I used a female RCA lead, and then connected a male RCA-Mini cable.... hence the RCA in all the pic's.

Pull ashtray. It's held in by 3 screws at the 9, 12, and 3 o'clock positions.



Disconnect the Cig-light plug located in the passenger side, under the radio. It's a white plug.

Drill a hole in the Shifter panel for the rocker switch, and one for the Mini jack.







Now solder two wire leads to the rocker switch. Use a multimeter/ground meter to test the wire leads and ensure that you did it right. You should get continuity/nothing when switching on/off

To fit the panel back in the car, you must cut an a/c vent. A notch must be made to accomodate the new switch.





After the cut, place tape or other covering/molding over the hole, allowing for clearance of the new rocker switch.

Locate negative (black/White), and Tel Mute (yellow/black) wires on harness, and strip a small section.



Install shifter panel and pull wires through to the radio end, as well as run the RCA cable.



Now solder and tape the two leads from the rocker switch... one to the Tel mute, and the other to the Ground. It won't matter which goes where, only that they're separate.






Test the switch, by connecting harness to radio. When flipping the switch you should get a voice-in message
