Is there any way to do either bluetooth or an aux in on this radio? The CD player is broken and i'm not all that thrilled about just replacing it with a factory radio off ebay. I'd like to do either like satellite radio or iPod in or something.

This is the 6 change which is built into the climate control, so options are limited ...

If I'm not mistaken you can replace it with an aftermarket. I would stop by your local specialty shop and see if they offer a dash kit to put an aftermarket radio in and go from there. Once you know if you put a radio in there it's a matter of picking out a radio that will have the features you want and works in a manner that makes sense to you.

If you have the trim level where the climate controls are integrated with the factory radio, you have a few options. A JDM conversion (extensive), Highline Car Audio (expensive), or a stand-a-lone re-wired aftermarket radio in the place of the center cubby bin area. This is one of the drawbacks to this type of integration.

With the dual auto climate control, you can't just swap in another radio because the climate control and radio are a single unit. I didn't know about the JDM conversion. It looks pretty good, if a little expensive. Thanks for the info. Were the part numbers the same for you on your vehicle as in the post?

Jazzy was selling a kit a number of years ago to allow either headphone jack or IPOD adapter.

Ah, yes, looks like he's still selling it. He's a regular on these forums (or was):

Jazzy Engineering

Note: This option will depend on how your CD changer failed. You will have to deintergrate the radio to install, so you might be able to get any stuck discs out.
