Hello,
This is my first question here, I know this has been asked for before, and apparently given, but I just cannot find a picture or a complete description of the Radio cassette CD pin out?
I believe some of these 90's era radio units can be adapted to have an auxiliary output?
My unit has the 8 pin din connector on the back, which I am told there are two types, one that is quite dumb and another that actively communicates with the CD unit, if someone could show me the pinout of the earlier simpler connector, I will have a go at making a cable to a Bluetooth adaptor most likely.
I know it is easier to just put a new radio in its place, but I would like to keep this Jeep Tj as original as possible.
So if someone have got the pinout picture I would be very grateful.
Ps I drive a 98 Jeep TJ
Thanks,
David.

Welcome to Allpar. Do you know which radio you have? 3 letters beginning with 'R'. It may be white print on the faceplate or on a paper chassis label.
I found this generic diagram. With a volt meter #1 & #2 should be 12v (+) with the key on. #5 & #8 should be earth.
Check this before plugging the unit in so-as not to damage it.

RADIO
Available factory-installed radio receivers for this model include an AM/FM (RAL sales code), an AM/FM/cassette (RAS sales code), and an AM/FM/CD/cassette/3-band graphic equalizer (RAZ sales code) All factory-installed radio receivers are stereo Electronically Tuned Radios (ETR), and include an electronic digital clock function.

AM/FM/cassette/CD/ with CD changer control feature (RAD, RBT or RBY sales code) - export only.

I have discerned the pinouts, but, that being said (a) there are two different 8 pin DIN layouts and (b) at least two variations of the power and audio pin assignments. Best way to identify is either the radio number or it's code (on the display face). I have an RBB AM/FM/Cassette with CD changer control and a 4 disc CD changer in my LeBaron convertible. It uses a DIN 8b pattern socket. I also have the mating Infinty 6 channel amplifier.

Hello the radio cassette unit has option for a cd changer, but I'm after a plug in aux unit to this 8 pin cd, it seems some versions are just a short somewhere and the unit accepts a changer is there and you can then connect to the left and right pins as an auxiliary input. Orhers have more interaction tbough and need a box to simulate a cd changer? I however can find nowhere where you can still get this box? Are the any suppliers in the us still? I'm in the uk, where jeep older bits are hard to find? Vehicle Steering wheel Steering part Center console Auto part

I checked the parts catalogs for various years & models and came up empty-handed.
There is a DIN extension cord that goes to the CD changer. I find no 'box' or 'shorting plug' offered.
If you know the Mopar part # of the 'box', I might be able to look it up.
