Hi all, this threat has been incredibly helpful, but I am having no luck in getting my new adapter to work. Just bought the Scosche AXHA2, opened the console with no issues, plugged it in, but nothing happens when I press AUX. I tried disconnecting the radio harness (as Scosche tech support suggested), as well as taking out the fuse, and disconnecting the battery. Clock and stations reset, but still not recognizing the box. I tried running my MP3 player into the RCA plugs while turning on the stereo, but still doesn't recognize it.
I have a 2004 LX, 1-CD player, no Nav. I should mention that I've been having what seems to be a ground problem with the radio for a while, where it randomly loses power about once per trip, and spontaneously comes back on a few seconds to an hour later. Also, the package was beat up pretty badly by UPS, but I don't want to blame them right out (the contents looked fine, but I'm not about to open the casing to check the wiring).
So my question: I already confirmed this is the right set to use. Specific to this unit, should I be using AUX1 or AUX2, or does it matter? I have ignored the Positive and Negative Ground Activation wires, as they seem to only be for a CD-changer. Should I be doing something with them? And does anyone have any tips for further troubleshooting, to check whether it's my car or the adapter that's not working right?
Thanks! If I get any useful info from Scosche (it's Saturday today), I'll post it in case others buy the same one.
