Question about Griffin Technology iTrip Auto Universal Plus FM Transmitter and Charger for Most MP3 Players

2 Answers

The wires on the cig lighter side of my iTrip auto 2008 pulled out and I want to solder them back in but I need to see which color wire goes where...? I can do the soldering fine but I want to make sure I get it right the first time, also how can I increase the broadcast power? I live near D.C. and sometimes it's hard to listen to music at all over the iTrip

Here is the cigarette/power plug side of an iTrip Auto 2007. I opened mine to fine the Violet wire still attached to J4 and the Green wire close to and bent in the position to set into J3. This is where I soldered it. The device works fine with the Blue wire attached to anything. Griffin tech support is not that technical to be able to pull up old wiring harnesses. Don't bother checking with them. The only place it looks like the Blue wire attached was the black base around the capacitor liiking thing, I am not an electronics tech, to the right of my thumb. You can see there is a tiny bit of solder there. And I considered that it might have arc'd there and left some solder, but it does not arc when I touch the bare blue wire to it. The only thing I haven't tried is touching it to the Green or Violet wire. I can't remember if the LCD on the iTrip was backlit. If anyone else has deal with, or willing to pop their power plug open in the name or internet Jerry-Riggers, any information on the elusive blue wire would be great. I will post the tuner portion pics after this. the wires on the cig - 9_25_2012_5_38_28_pm.jpg

    Well, I am unable to post pics more than once in a thread evidentally. Here is a link to another fixya post with the pictures of the transmitter side. http://www.fixya.com/support/t6306091-ne...

  • Mike Sabo Sep 25, 2012

    http://c.fixya.net/fixya20/uploads/image... The picture is of an unaltered iTrip 2007 power side connection. It appears that the Green and Violet wires are mis-placed from the factory. The Violet attached at (G) and Green attached at (V) and the Blue(Aqua) attached to the (A) side. If so then the correct placement for Violet is J3 and Green J4. I would suggest checking your tuner side before reattaching the plug side incase yours is properly attached.

Fuse cigarette lighter


charge?
the cig is very simple, its just a connector and a fuse.
if you have 12vdc on both sides of the CIG fuse. key on
then the CIG socket is bad, or the wire behind it fell off
or the Cig ground wire fell off.
a voltmeter will tell you which is bad, and why.
its just a 2 wire circuit, power and ground
fuses that look good can in fact be bad, (hair line cracks)
so use the OHM meter part of you meter, and check for
0 ohms good
infinity ohms bad, works 100% of time , ohms checks, no guessing!@

I trip wire broken


I noticed that no 1 spoke of the wires that you were requesting so what I found out from the board self for the a iTrip work comes up the little LCD display if you pop it open it tells you what each 1 of those wires are for the red and black obviously are power and ground. Green is Right side, brown is ground (or S on Griffin's board), yellow is Left Side, purple goes to 'I', blue to 'X', white is 'T'. I'm only guessing for the x,t,&I but i maybe the interaction from connector to LCD x is receive and the is transmit. Not really sure on it so don't quote me on that. But that's about far as I can help with. Since I'm converting mine from iPod connector to regular headphone jack to use on my android

I need a wiring diagram for my iTrip. The wires broke off at the plug that goes into the iPod. I'm not sure which wire,( green, orange or red ) is the ground wire. Trying to fix it myself. Thanks for any...


@dpettus88


I had the same problem. The plastic harness around the connector broke after I had the iTrip for only a few months. It finally quit working recently. I was amazed to see how cheaply made this somewhat expensive item was when I finally took it apart. Anyways, here is what I came up with. There\'s a bit of whine in the signal, which I believe is because my soldering on the yellow and brown wires left a little to be desired. But, as I said, this configuration did actually work. Will post results of cleaning up the connection on those two pads.

No dash or tail lights for my 03 alero and all was well before i pulled unto the street


first check fuse 45 in the box under the hood. If you, try swapping the AUTO PRK relay (#19) with another relay to see if that's the problem. I believe it's one or the other of these. If not, please get back to me.

Cigarette lighter not wotking


Hi, check the fuse box under the dash on the passenger or driver side. There is a cigarette lighter fuse that may have burned out. if the fuse is in good condition, this will confirm element failure. you will need to replace the lighter head in this case(uncommon).

**Most common issue here will eb a busted or burned out fuse..

Cigarette lighter plug not working


hopefully nothing serious. if you can, make sure your wires did not burned or got too hot.Visually inspect them. Then, if you have a voltmeter check to see if you getiing power to it. no voltmeter? Go to your nearest auto parts store and ask for a test light. Back to the lighter, if you have power on the wires or wires leading to the back of the lighter, more than like it you lighter burned out.  No power on the wires? make sure wire did not get fryed or burned, all wires look good? check fuses again.  worst case scenario, can't find problem ? you can run another wire from your fuse box to the lighter.

Please help me with power in cig lighter


Hi, grab a voltmeter and test volts at car lighter connector, near to car lighter socket, if there is volts in there (uncommon) , then check for short or broken contact on car lighter socket, or replace the first socket connected in line.

If there is no voltage getting to cig lighter, check the two connections at the back of the fuse box, on the cigarette lighter fuse.

If there is volts only on one side, then fuse is gone again, in that case there is a short on wiring, maybe on one of lighters, locate it and fix it.

If there is power on both sides of the fuse, then fix or replace wiring between fuse box and cigarette lighter, one wire is broken.

If there is no power on both sides of lighter fuse, then fix the wiring between fuse box cig. lighter contact and battery, if this is too complicate you can even build a new wiring and solder in place of the old one.

If the lighters have more than one fuse, do the same job for both lighter. Cig. lighters do not use a relay, and there is no additional fuse, the above procedure is enough to fix any possible problem on such a simple device.

If you have no practice with this kind of repair on car electrical system, then better to go to a car electrician or mechanic rather then messing up the car electric system.

Please do not forget to leave us feedback afterward, that is important for us.

Many thanks.
