Who is the stock stereo made by?
I have searched these forums, google other numerous cites but to no availe. If there is anyone out there who can help I will be far more than grateful. I have a 97 ES300 and after doing hours of research I am almost complete with my in-car computer, but the single problem that still remains is how can i get the rca output into to the stock cd input. Because Lexus is made by Toyota i figured it would be easy, but after searching and searching I havn't found a single solution. I no longer care what it takes, whether i'm going to have to splice into the cd cable or if i'll have to order some handmade adapter from Timbuktu; i just want to find a answer to this problem.
Greatly appreciate any advice at all.
u cant get the rca into the cd in put? are u pushin hard enough?
Maybe u need to go the amp for a connection? i haven seen the setup for the lexus your talkin about, what kind of connection is the cd input ?
Go on and do it, do it, Do it 'til you're satisfied,
Whatever it is, do it, Do it 'til you're satisfied.

Do you have the stock CD changer? What is in the dash?- Just a Radio with cassette? I'll see if I can get any of the audio pinouts or schematics for that car.
Dang guys thanks for the help, I have sent out at least 8 emails and havn't had a single reply, but after posting it here I recieved help immediatly. Thank you so much. I found a website that has helped me very much
hopefully it may offer some clues as to what can be done.
You could always go the easy route if there is no other way. http://www.crutchfield.com/S-bwTKwfN...g=234550&avf=N
One of these may work as well. They don't have any that are for a Lexus but since it is an older model, one of these Toyota ones may work. I'd give them a call. http://logjamelectronics.com/auxtoy.html
Damn thats alot of work to do for a factory radio. Unfortunately that doesnt show us what we need to see. We need to see whatever type connector is behind the radio that connects the radio to the cd changer
As soon as i get hold of my digital camera I will take pictures of all the connections and post them.
if it has cd changer control you could purchase a cd changer and then tap into the leads on the cable. (you'll need the cd changer to fool the h/u)
