I plan to tuck the GTA module away, behind the bottom draw. So basically I need to rip out the whole center console units.
GTA Car kit + wiring harness
10 mm socket + extensions
Any flat bar or putty knife
Roto Zip saw.
Step 1: Remove the Side Panels
Most auto wiring plugs have some locking tabs that you need to press down & wiggle ...
Step 2: Remove Speaker Grill
Step 3: Remove the NAV Radio
Step 4: Install GTA Wire Harness
Install GTA wire harness splitter to existing jack, then GTA ipod cable to it. Finally the existing CD controller.
Step 5: Remove Center A/C Controller Module
Remove the 4 bolts for the A/C controller module, and the 2 electrical plugs from the back.
Put this module away also to minimize damages.
Step 6: Remove the Shifter Console
Unplug the 2 cig lighters & heat control jacks.
Step 7: Cut Slot for IPod AUX
Using my handy RotoZip saw, I slotted a hole big enough for the GTA headphone AUX cable.
(size varies, depending on what non-Apple device you want to plug in)
Step 8: Cut Slot for IPod Controler Cable
This one is fairly simple: Toyota center console has a release handle, so I remove it off-site & cut my iPod slot
Finally, connect the GTA AUX wire, the iPod controller from radio, and the iPod connector wire.
Turn on radio, select CD input & test.
Step 9: Put Everything Back
