Even though I have the OEM USB connector installed, I also wanted to have the option to connect my radio to any device that has a standard 3.5 mm mini jack. My radio has the Aux function supported by pressing and holding the CD button. I finally figured out which connectors to use that supplies the audio for the Aux function. Not sure if the L & R polarity is correct, but it's working. Unfortunately, there was no plastic connector to insert the wires in and I had to just insert them onto the blades. I was worried about them shorting the adjacent blades, but it looked like it cleared adequately even if I moved the wires around. Yeah, not very clean but good enough for a temporary solution. Standard disclaimers apply...
The radio, by the way, is the higher powered 6 speaker SE radio (not the touch screen). I would like to find the correct connector for this and do it right. Anyone know of a source?
I cut a small round notch on the lower bottom of the plastic back cover. Don't cut the notch at the very bottom of the cover because there is an obstruction behind it. I used a cable tie to prevent the cable from being pulled out too far.
The part I used was a Mitsubishi MZ360136EX and it has a "coil box" on the wire which I imagine is some sort of choke to reduce noise. This is not an i-MiEV part. I think it's listed for an Outlander/Lancer. I don't think an i-MiEV part exists. Bought it for $44.39 + shipping from R.C. Hill Mitsubishi. List is $58.95. I found it listed for $39.54 at MitsubishiPartsPeople.com but I didn't buy it from them (discovered it too late). I imagine you could rig up a standard cable and save even more money.
I wonder if this EVEN cheaper part might not be as good or better?http://www.amazon.com/Mitsubishi-2003-2 ... B008219OQ0
