I want to connect an mp3 player but i only have a cd player, is there a line-in jack somewhere in the car or behind the stereo


No jack on factory stereo. You'll have to use either a cassette adapter or an FM adapter; both plug into your regular mp3 line out. Cassette adapters are not as reliable but cheap and don't use power, while FM adapter requires power (from 12V or battery) and is more expensive.

How to integrate the pioneer deh-1300mp into a 96 Dodge 2500 Centurion diesel truck to replace a radio/cassette player.


The simplest way to swap the stock radio out for the cassette player would be to go to a radioshack or bestbuy, normally they will carry a double-din to single-din adapter so that the smaller after market radio fits into the existing location snugly. They usually also carry a wiring harness adapter that will plug right into your dodges existing harness and you can just wire nut or solder & shrink wrap the adapter to the pioneers harness, saves a lot of time and insures everything is where it needs to be.
Normally you can get both adapters for under $15, hope this is helps.

Plastic box of wires to big for my new cd player after taking my old cassette player out


You wll need a stereo installation adapter kit. This will change the dash opening to the size you need, oftentimes by replacing an entire dash panel for a factory look.

Here is a link to the dash kit for your car at Best Buy. These will come with detailed instructions. Let me know if this helps :)

Casstte Player- '94 ford


I think you are saying you are using a cassette adapter to play the external iPod/PSP etc. and I presume the cassette plays regular tapes OK. The auto-reverse cassette player thinks the 'tape' is over, so reverses then ejects. You can try putting in a regular tape, change sides then eject. Try the adapter again. Hopefully the adapter will work in 'one' direction.

Can you install a CD player in a 2001 Ford Focus that only has a radio and cassette player? Someone told me that you cannot pop out the cassette and radio and install a CD player.


I do not know who told you that but that is bull. I have installed many stereos, especially CD players, in to many fords. I don't care if the year of the car was 1978 or 2006. As long as you have the right harness connected you will have no problem with the system in you car.

I also have a '95 ford explorer. Same problem. I took the screws out of the tape and opened up the adapter. I took out all the gears EXCEPT for the one large one in the middle two on either side. Now it works perfectly.
