Radio harness

I added an XM eXpress to my stock radio....but I added the 5v power source to the AUX4 upfitter switch.

It is all working fine except when you shut the key off, AUX 4 shuts off.....I need to find a wire to splice into that will keep it on the same delay as the radio.

Any ideas or suggestions? How about the actual radio power wire?

12 V constant = Light Green / Purple (behind radio)
12 V switched = Pink (behind radio)

How did you wire it into your stock radio?? I want to do an IPOD hookup to mine. BTW, 12VDC on a 5VDC line doesn't sound good to me...might not want to run that like that for very long!

It comes with an adapter to step down the voltage.

XM sells a kit for it, there are also kits like this for adding an IPOD.

do you have the kit part number? How does it work? What type of stock stereo do you have (I have the 6 disc with aux button)...same? I would love to push my aux button on my radio and listen to my IPOD!
