I bought the DICE Aux/IPOD kit - it most probably know this connects to the
cd changer cables and give you Ipod controls/charging and an auxillary
port. I may get an Ipod one day, but I wanted an Aux for my Sirius plug
and play radio.
1.) I installed the kit and had an altenator whine. I read all about
ground loops and determined I probably had one. Based on some feedback
from the vendor of the DICE kit, I stopped pulling power (and ground) from
the cigar lighter and pull it off the DICE harness (same power, should
eliminate any ground loops). But I still have an altenator whine (Changes
freq with RPMs). Any tips other than install ground loop isolator or power
2,) I want the Sirius to be powered on/off with the key... The vendor
thought one of the wires from the CD Changer was an accessory signal from
the radio. He suggested an easy relay circuit to control power to the
sirius radio. When I checked the wires, nothing was like a standard
accessory line (12V when ignition on, nothing when key off). I have the
Bentleys, but but the wiring diagram is confusing - I figured out that
Red/Green in +12 (fuse 56), brown in ground... Is there an accessory wire?
Does the Ibus tell the other component when to turn on or off? I could
always tap off an igntion controlled circuit, but would be nice to just use
the wires from the DICE harness if possible.
