Oh, it's just a radio, don't sweat the small stuff, I can live. .. . . .
I set out to do the Aux-in Hack a couple weekends ago. I'm sure some of you are familiar with it:
2005 Subaru aux-in hacking - Hack a Day
Quote from the hack:
"Be extremely gentle and use a low heat solder to attach these two wires. I felt one of the legs loosen from the radio module when I was applying heat to it and I have no idea how hard it would be to reattach if it detached completely
I was re-assembling the radio and one leg feel off.
I had gambled and lost.
Anyways, I got what I wanted, I now have an Aux-in, but the consequence is I don't have any FM or AM sound anymore.
I thought I'd share that here, and look for suggestions. If you don't know where I'm at, here's my assessment: All I need is another circuit board from inside the radio. (Picture of circuit board attached) The car is a 2005 LL Bean with Automatic Climate Controls and Subwoofer.
Anybody got any ideas where I might find this specific item? This is junkyard gambling, or maybe someone knows if Subaru will replace specific component like that. . . . . or any good replacement ideas? Crutchfield couldn't offer much help on aftermarket.
