Default Issues with diy AUX on 2012 Impreza

So first off, I mistakenly ordered the wrong part from Dave at ae64.com.


I misunderstood the language thinking that I would be getting a male 8-pin to a 3.5mm jack. It was about $60 cheaper than going the OEM route and I'd get to run the AUX cord out below the A/C controls instead of the center console.

I didn't realize my mistake until after I pulled the HU out.

With the HU out though, I was confused. There was already an 8-pin plugged in. There isn't an AUX jack in the center console nor is there a cord running though the console area.

Is this 8-pin an AUX cord? Where could it possibly lead to if it's not in the console area?

If there is a male 8-pin somewhere else in the car, I'm golden. Otherwise, I'll bite the bullet and go for the OEM.

Any ideas or help? Much thanks and appreciation!

That harness is definitely plugged into your OEM HU's 8-pin aux socket. Might be a factory harness, or might be aftermarket. It does have the wires on the correct pins for aux (1, 2, 5, 6).

If not to your armrest center console, where does that harness go? Are you sure it doesn't go to the armrest console? There's a small chance your car is pre-wired, and only needs the OEM pod with the 3.5mm jack (to drop in, in place of the blank panel).

As you may have realized, the harness you ordered from me is for a person who's car has the 3.5mm aux jack and wants to retain that with an aftermarket HU. E-mail me to discuss exchanging that for the opposite (connecting an aux source into your factory HU).
