    UPDATE:

    I had to get two switching power supplies that put out 15 volts (adjustable) so I could supply the positive and negative rails for the chip to work.

    Then I found software that actually...

    You might try using copper tape and solder a drain wire from the copper to ground (Farady shield)

    You might also try "desensitizing" the VGA lines by loading them with a resistor to ground.

    Grabbed the audio feed from the radio and it is differential.

    Found a chip that will convert from differential to single ended and it works great.

    Interfacing the OEM radio/nav to the 5.1 sound is the new project.

    Tried using LOC's and the distortion from the transformers is too much to bare.

    I figured this would be more technical discussion rather then a personal taste discussion.

    The OP asked how to do it, rather then opinions of 5.1 (as I read it).

    To the OP.

    Forget what the naysayers spout off with.

    IT IS WORTH IT.

    You will not be able to remap (that I have heard of ) to an external trim.

    The only way I know is to monitor the OBD continually with a code scanner.

    They are pretty cheap, but I would look into a spare PCM as they are pretty cheap also.

    I thought he said he put an OBD scanner to get codes so I assume it was check engine light related and that was his problem.

    The "check engine light" is PCM controlled.

    You already established the LED works and you can see codes "tripped (?)"

    There is a BIG difference between CAT5 and VGA cable.

    CAT5 relies on twisted pair and differential for noise cancellation whereas VGA is shielded (for noise) and single ended.

    Thanks for the comps!

    The Mini had a 240 gig HD so the SSD swap was a wash.

    The Mini had 4 gig of memory and now it is 16, the max you can put in a 2009.
