Canada 2000 Corolla LE CD player AUX option

Hello guys.

I was wondering if you guys can help me out here. I'm looking to add an AUX input to the CD player in the car so I can listen to my mp3 player. This is because the Cd player doesn't play MP3 Cds and it also skips CDs a lot.

I have tried FM transmitters but their quality is terrible. I use to have a Civic, in which I installed a CD player for $200. This is only for the AUX option.

So guys is there any way to hooking up auxiliary input into the stock CD player that comes with 2000 Corolla LE?

if there are any hacks or something I can try out let me know. I would really appreciate that.

thanks

If you have the same unit as I do (have a CD button), you can buy a line-in to CD adapter which plug into the CD changer port of the stock unit.

However, this may be one thing where the aftermarket offers better solution. My JVC deck (in my dad's car) has a proper line in where all I need to do is to connect anything I like to it using a male-male 3.5mm phone plug cable.

Here's a picture I posted earlier in the forums. This shows a bit of the CD player, let me know if its the same one as yours Buurin



I would like to buy an after market but I'm strapped on cash right now. I do keep an out for sales on the players which offer AUX input, but I always end up paying for the installation. I have never done installation of a car stereo before, but if you or anyone else here on the forum has done it before, could you tell me if its easy, and how much work is involved in replacing stock with after market?

r0lla5XRS I have tried couple of transmitters from CT as well, but they all have some static.

Installation is super easy. All you have to do is pop the bezel off from around the radio, remove four screws that hold the radio in, move the mounting brackets to the new radio, unplug the harness, wire up the harness to the new radio and install it.

If you order from Crutchfield they provied installation instructions and a free harness.

No, I have a tape deck (suck, I know). You need a soldering iron to assemble the harness tho. You can always cash and carry the unit and install it yourself. (if the store don't let you, walk away)

check ebay...there seem to be a lot of non-FM transmitter units, but I'm not sure if they're compatible specifically with your deck

do you have a CD changer input?
