Question Aux IN

I also own a 2006 Tribeca and I am interested in hard wiring my XM radio into the CD/Radio receiver. I am sure there is a way to do this as the owners manual basically explains that the Aux button on the front of the radio is to select and auxiliary audio input. Therefore there has to be an auxiliary audit input on the radio. I am trying to find out from my dealer the information as to what the cable/receptacle on the back of the radio looks like. Does anyone know what the make and model of the radio is? Someone in the parts department told me it was a Panasonic and the designation on the front of the radio is a "P-136". Can anyone confirm this and tell me what the specific model number of the radio is?

If I find out I will post it here.

Thanks

Actionyoo: this is basically the question I have asked previously in this thread with no response. I was hoping someone who has seen the back of the radio can tell me what kind of recepticle(s) are back there but so far, no one has been able to provide this info. If it is a 13-pin DIN I think I can build a cable that can activate the aux input signal in the radio and then be able to play my ipod through this connection. Presumably you can do something similar with your XM radio. If you have more luck than me finding out what kind of connector is back there, I would appreciate hearing from you. -Goldino

Here's a post from another forum that answers your question.

"BTW i took out the Stereo last eve but could not get pictures(batts were down and did not have the patience to wait). it's really easy to remove but there are no jacks whatsoever in the back. the wires probably link in thru the harness at some point. the face of the stereo/climate control are all one piece which attaches to the head unit thru a clip on connection. so the answer to my other question of installing the factory XM would be that the whole face(with XM button) would have to be added as well as changing the wiring harness as well...?"

Default Rear Entertainment wiring

Does anyone know how and where the rear entertainment package is supposed to be installed in the 06 Tribeca? Perhaps the aux input is preinstalled for the rear entertainment package and if it is not already installed (as in my vehicle) maybe there would be a way to identify and tap into the aux input in the wiring harness.

On the left The back connector goes to the nav, the front one to the button panel

On the right the back connector is for speakers/power and the front one is most likely the one we want. I'm guessing that the spare pins on that connector are for the RSE.

Does ANYONE have access to a service manual for the radio? Surely the pinout is online somewhere?

Well, I've found the service manual for the RSE to the radio, but its pretty useless as it just says which color goes into the connector. But at least I now know which terminals are used on that connector so I can play around with it...

Edit: Found the colors, the terminals and what they do. Tomorrow I'll hook them up and see what happens... With a little luck I should be able to make a $10 cable the enables line in on the radio.

Here are the 2 schematics for the audio signals from the RSE to the radio. The one thing I can't completely figure out is how to let the radio know the RSE is installed, I'm guessing a +12 or GND signal somewhere?





From the looks of it terminals 6 and 7 on connector I26 are for AUX and I assume terminals 16 and 17 are for the dvd player audio. 14 is the GND. But what are 4 and 5 and what kind of signal is expected on 13?

If we figure this out we'll be able to get audio in on the radio.

Default Aux In

Is the cable for the rear entertainment center installed even if the center is not? If so where is it located? How do you get to it?

Thanks

No, the cable isn't installed. The terminals at the back of the radio are just empty and the wires do not run to the back.

I would guess 2 wires are for the audio, 1 for the video, 1 for +12, 1 for ACC, 1 for RSE sense (which is either grounded or +12 by the RSE) and lastly, pin 13 probably goes to the front display to tell the NAV screen whether to display video or radio data. Since I just got my Tribeca a week ago, I'm not quite ready (brave enough) to rip out the radio and function test to identify the exact wires.

I found something else; on the 07's AUX lines there is no "sense" or anything else, the wires are just pulled to the center console, so perhaps there is a key combination we need to do on the radio to enable the AUX?

Default 06/07 9 speaker radio

I am trying to find out if the 06 and 07 radio are the same (part number?). If they are, then adding the aux input maybe as simple as runnning a couple of wire to the radio in the same place as the 07 and adding a jack. Anybody know anything about this?

I am pretty sure that they are indeed both the same. From the schematic of the 07's aux in it shows the aux in lines going from the center console right to the radio, no sense lines or anything, which is why I'm guessing that it may just be as simple as a button combination to enable aux in...

Default Tribeca AUX In

I looked at the 07 schematics also. It looks like the same 6 lines that run to the DVD player in the cars that have it are the same pinouts that run to the AUX in for the 07s. I spent some time at the dealers and talking to Subaru and you can't get the aux in jack part to install. They couldn't find it on any parts list and say they arent offering it. I bet they will have to if one breaks on an 07. They can't just throw the car away. I am also not sure what all the wires are for so just buying any jack will probably not work. My guess is

1. right channel
2. Left CHannel
3. Common audio ground
4. Shield ground for Noise
5. ???? One or both of these may be the sense that has been mentioned in this thread.
6. ???

The aux in for the 07 wo DVD is only audio so no video. The 06 also has a knockout in the center consol for the aux in jack.

They would just replace the entire unit under warranty. No need for individual parts... YET!

Default Bad News 06 Aux Input

In the satellite radio install it looks like the xm radio module uses the same connections that the aux in does in the 07. Subaru confirmed that the satellite radio won't work on the 06 so I think the aux in points arent active unless you have the DVD system.

The '07 has a completely differnt stereo. Notice the "Sat" button? That's new.

I'm pretty sure they just hacked the XM into it. The whole audio setup in the car is a collection of different brands slapped together (Kenwood monitor and nav unit, Panasonic radio). All it seems the "SAT" button does is activate an XM module which doesn't communicate with the radio, but with the monitor unit. It looks like the XM radio audio just gets fed into an AUX jacK of the radio. I'm pretty sure the radio is actually exactly the same as in the 06.

Doesn't someome have an 07 with the Aux jack? Taking the radio out is about a 10 minute job. I can send a PDF file that shows how to remove the unit.

Wouldn't that interfere with the rear DVD entertainment system?

Anyone make any further progress with the aux in for '06???

Really seems like it should be doable...

Default aux input tribeca 06

I took the easy route suggested by some. I put an inline fm modulator into my car. The sounds is pretty good on some material and sounds squashed on others. Not sure I can define what makes it ok or bad. Definitely not as good as a direct line in but really easy to put in on the tibeca and not expensive.

I havent been able to find anything about the frequency response of inline frequency modulators. I know FM is from 30 to 15,000 hz and any good radio gear will have a frequency response of about +/-1 DB over that range. But, no information seems to be available on the fm modulators. A few say they go to 15,000 but don't say how flat and most don't say anything. It would be nice to know if I have a good modulator or not.

I am pretty picky on sound quality over the whole spectrum from lows to highs so this is not the end for me but don't have time to mess with it right now.

I did find an electronics box in the center console right infront of the gear shift. I wonder if it is part of the radio system and a possible location of the ports. The box has the name denso on it and I believe they are into ignition parts more than radios so it might have nothing to do with the radio but seems a strange place for an ignition component.

I **think** that those are airbag control components given the color of the wires coming out of it. I saw it too, and decided not to mess with it

The SRS (airbag) wiring is bright yellow in colour, The harness, loom and plugs. Don't mess with that whatever you do...
