    SRX Possible video & Audio AUX

    Dear all:
    I am still looking for different possibilities in order to get the AUX in my Cadillac SRX 2006

    I have already IPOD integration using the rear entertaiment system AUX IN but it is very tedious some times becuase I have to push the aux button many times in the back of my car while Im driving....

    I am looking for some alternatives prepering the ground for an aftermarkert radio keeping my NAV & DIC system working

    And here my question

    In my Cadillac SRX 2006 I have a Analog TV. This is a module located in the back of the car and it is not in use anymore in Europe becuase we are all in digital TV( see picture attached TV turner.jpg)

    Well taking a look to the connector diagram( see picture attached Diagram.jpg) I can see PINS 5, 6 & 7 ,23 ,25 ,26 are related to teh audio

    And here my stupid question....

    If I cut that cables related to the pNS mentioned abovae and I connect an audio signal ( IPOD??).... once I select TV tuner in my radio it should open the TV channel letting the audio pass though the system

    Is it possible?
    If yes can any body explain me the differences between Pins 5,6,7 & 23,25,26 becuase 5,6, and 7 are lef audio, right audio and common signal should be the negative ( black).... but i am a litlle bit confuse with the other pINS

    Can I asume video INPUt can be as well open using the same technic??

    Thanks in advance

    Re: SRX Possible video & Audio AUX

    on the diagram you posted, it looks like the second set of audio pins would be used if your vehicle has the U42 RPO

    do you know where in the radio this connects? also, where is the tv tuner mounted?

    i believe video-in would work if its already enabled in your vehicle

    As long as the tuner module is still connected (power, ground, and Class 2 data) it will work. The radio queries the data bus for modules at start up and adds the appropriate buttons on the display.

    I do not know where in the radio this connect but I suppouse it will connect in the back for sure...... If there is anybody having the diagram of the TV connector plugged into the radio, it will be very helpful for me becuase I would not like to cut wires in blind mode........

    Tv Turner module is mounted in the back side of the car close to the left wheel..... if you want Ican provide some pics

    Last but not least, i do not know what U42 RPO means..... so I do not know if my car is equiped with it...

    Re: SRX Possible video & Audio AUX

    Thanks to everybody for your help
    i have found an eBay seller selling dashboards compatible with our cars
    I have requested more information (drawings, layout) . As soon as I have got them I will keep you informed
    Any ides regrding the tv connectors in the radio itself? It would be much more easy to cut the wires close to the radio than cutting the wires from tv module on the back of the car
    Thanks

    Dear all

    I have found the following coonector & their wiring scheme

    As you can see PIN 9 & 10 from the back of the CD correspond to the TV signal and it has the same wire colors than the tV audio signal from the TV module connector I attached yesterday

    My only concern before cutting the wire and adding a external source there is that the schemes says TV Left Audio Signal & right audio signal (Export)

    Do you know what the world exposts means here?

    I feel we are very close to find the solution....

    Thanks

    Re: SRX Possible video & Audio AUX

    i think that means it applies to the export models only

    ok so what connector are you dealing with now?

    what exactly is your goal?

    Re: SRX Possible video & Audio AUX

    My goal is to cut the tv wires from this connector and connect to them an iPod audio signal.....or install and aftermarket radio replacing the cd charger and connect the audio through that tv signal
    I think this is possible

    Re: SRX Possible video & Audio AUX

    Here's an idea. Instead of cutting the wires to see if your idea will work, trace the circuits involved back to the next connector, then remove the wire ends from the connector and use alligator clips to attach to your device. That way you can see if it works without cutting wires and can put it back the way it was if it doesn't work. Understand?

    Re: SRX Possible video & Audio AUX

    Dear all:

    This weeked I started to work on my idea to connect an ipod using the audio from the TV module

    I cut 3 wires, connect the ipod,..... and ITS WORKING...... Sound is crystal clear and everything works perfect.....
    On top I have installed a bluetooth Music Received from Belkin and I have wireless music....

    This is the good part, but unfortunately there are some minus related to my idea to install an aftermarket radio keeping the car radio ( DIC system)

    1.- I do not see any TV signal in any of the connectors..... I have found the TV Aduio Left & right but not TV Video. Any idea of where are the wires for the TV IN?

    2.- Unfortunaltely connectors from TV turner ( the ones I have cut) are not connected to the radio itself.... they are connected to the CD Charger........ Taking in to account I need to replace the CD charger to have enough space for an aftermarket radio..... I do not know how to doit becuase if the connector I use for ipod connections is not plug into the CD charger it does not work

    Do you know if there is any option to use a"AUX in" from the connector plugged straight away to the radio itself, and not from the cd charger??

    Thanks in advance & good luck with your installations

    I recommend to everybody this easy installation...... 10 minutes to have a Crystal clear AUX in audio....

    Re: SRX Possible video & Audio AUX

    Dear all:

    I am trying to find the video IN to complete my homework, but unfortunately I do not find a video IN

    In the meantime, I am trying to understand what is the purpose of the back connector cable from the radio to the CD ( see peicture attached)

    I have disconnected it, but everything seems to be perfectly working ( all funtions are working)

    May I ask yoiu to let me know what is is connector and if possible the wiring related

    Many thanks in advance
