6000Cd Mk2 Aux Connection

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, picked up my focus last week and just sorting out the aux input. Being lazy and not taking the radio out as we haven't got any keys for it, so whipped out the glove box to check if 4 pin connector is there. Found the 6 pin and 4 pin and just want to confirm the aux cable is the 4 pin plug with 2 wires coming off it. Would it be safer just to nip to ford tomorrow and borrow some keys to check the cable is in the back of the radio?

Edit: Sorry typo- 3 wires coming off 4 pin plug not 2.

Not the correct plug unless the 4 pin has 3 wires off it.

Sorry Clive, made a typo. 3 wires coming off 4 pin plug I found not 2 as I stated earlier.

You have 4 chooses ,

(1) Unscrew the inside of your glove-box and you should see the AUX connection if not ,

(2) Pull out your radio and connect an AUX-3.5MM Jack cable to the harness connection both of theses cables for 1/2 can be bought from amazon for £7 each depending upon which one you need .

(3) if you don't fancy fitting cables you can buy a digital FM sender unit for £13 .

(4) last but not least replace your Ford cd6000 with either a basic new Sony £40 ,or a 2din all singing and dancing model £95

Some people don't rate the sender unit , I can recommend one which I have used for several years with out any drop in quality or interference , it just depends on how handy you are .

I've had my focus for a few months now and I thought my AUX cable was built in. After reading through this thread and looking in the glovebox it seems that the car didn't have a cable as standard and one of the previous owners fitted it?

Hi,

I know this thread is old but just got a MK2 and looking at adding a aux from my CD6000.

Does anyone know the part number for a cover plate with an aux input to replace one of my blank covers, next to the rear window button?

Rather than plugging into a loose cable.

Thanks!

Check my guide links for how to fit and also make the usb socket into a convenient socket for phone/satnav/dashcam power.

Thanks for that.

 

Is there a panel/plate with just a aux input so I can put the aux into the back and then plug in via the panel?

 

Can only see Aux and USB combos. Or can I use that without any USB plug in required?

There aren't any just aux ones afaik.
I have seen cases of someone creating their own using bolt in sockets though.
You don't need to connect the usb but if you wire it up as per my guide then you have a handy usb power socket.

I mounted a little button on a grey piece of plastic, which happily stuck in with 3M VHB tape. I didn't really want to drill the actual blank, and the blanks seemed quite expensive!

What's the best/simplest way to take out one of the blank cover plates?
