I just bought an 04 sti and the original owner installed a good system in it (not great, but good). It includes 4 door speakers (no speakers in the rear deck) and a sony CDX-M8800 headunit. headunit
I've got 2 questions/problems...
1) I'd like to plug my ipod into the back of the HU. I checked and it has an aux in (RCA) connection in the back and I have the correct cable from another car. The question is how do I get to this aux in to plug it in. I was going to slide the HU and thread the mini plug end through the back of the console and round the side. However, I don't have the little install keys to slide it out. How else could I get at it...short an installer to do it for $35+.
2) The previous owner lost the remote for this unit. I can do everything I need with the controls on unit itself, with the exception of one function. I can't get the display to stop cycling through its images/screensavers (a demo mode sorta thing). I find this distracting. Has anyone found a work around for this or know of a store that is fairly lenient and will let me borrow their remote for 5 minutes. (I already tried resetting the unit...it defaults to the demo-like mode.)
Thanks for reading my long post.
