Default Mach 1000 auxiliary port

Hello all, I'm new here. Bought a 04 gt about 8 months ago and provably read some threads here. Decided to join to share that I've successfully added auxiliary port for listening to music from phone for basically no money . I have the mach 1000 system but this probably works just as easy on 460 . Requires an old set of headphones and some minor soldering. If anyone's interested let me know and I'll post directions. Not sure if anyone still uses original head unit.

Default Directions

first remove your radio from dash
remove cover from radio, 2 screws.
next remove 4 screws holding CD player, 2 on top of radio and 2 on side.
carefully lift out, there's a ribbon cable that unplugs by gentle pulling it out, it has nothing but friction holding it in.
next find LCH & RCH near where ribbon cable plugs into CD player and AGRD which is ground will be located in middle of motherboard , ill attach pic. These are where you'll connect your wires. I used a rca to 3.5 cable and just cut rca ends off.
your ground in that cable is going to be wrapped around left and right channel wires, you'll have to ad a short extension to ground you reach where it is on the motherboard, solder that extension on first.
now solder wires to motherboard, I just put a little solder on my iron and than held each wire in place and touched the iron to it and that was enough to solder it together.
once wires are attached there's a hole already in radio case on right side, drill it larger to fit your cable through.
now start reassemble, feed cable through your hole first and then plug in ribbon and reassemble .
when installing back in car pull your 3.5 aux wire to where you want it and reconnect and install radio. I pulled mine near stick shift and installed panel jack near parking brake.
that's it, your done! Takes an hour or so to do.
To listen to aux jack select CD on radio, you need a CD loaded. I burned a silent CD using silent files I found on the net but also discovered it overrides any CD, even one with music. If you have something plugged into new aux cable that overrides whatever CD is playing, if you unplug aux cable whatever is on CD will then be heard.
I bought a small Bluetooth device on Amazon to plug into aux cable and now I'm wireless and have hands free calling on my mach 1000
