Here is the interface.
2 ICs, 4 caps, 6 resistors.
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.
Now the problem is volume control...
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.
Going to use a differential to...
Just a 5 volt regulator LM series.
Mint box is the heat sink and mounted to the amplifier heat sink, no worries at all.
I see a mason jar full of moonshine?
Looks ESD safe. hahaha
You bet I did.
Check it out:
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.
A lot of my music sounds so much more defined with the 5.1.
I installed a 5.1 decoder and power supply in my setup.
I believe EFI live can do and also HP tune.
You will not be able to remap (that I have heard of ) to an external trim.
You would have to have the entire "tune" being controlled by the OBD port,...
Look at using one of the above and a USB bluetooth adapter.
I would suggest you get off the idea of OBD/CANBUS unless you are gonna spend some time getting educated in what they are for and the...
Forget using a conventional ECU/PCM and adapting it.
You need a multiple analog input data logger.
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.
If not, generate a known code.
Disconnect a spark plug wire and that...
The "check engine light" is PCM controlled.
Either the PCM went funky or your wiring did.
You already established the LED works and you can see codes "tripped (?)"
I said that in post #4.
You need to determine if your power source is the cause or not.
This thread is almost entertaining.
If you had read the link(s) I provided, you could have saved some time.
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.
A "good" VGA...
Sounds like alternator noise to me.
You need to describe the noise.
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.
