8 pin din CD aux pinout? Chrysler Jeep TJ 98

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

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.

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 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.
Welcome to Allpar. Which radio?

The RBL is made by Alpine for the European market.
The DIN, I believe is a universal pinout. I found this on the Alpine website:

The RBL may automatically determine any DIN input to be a CD player. You may be able to trick it into thinking that a disc is present or use the cassette player as a Bluetooth audio input?
