    Any car audio experts in the house?

    So I went to figure out what type of cable I need to hook my ipod or phone up to my car head unit and discovered a connector in the wiring harness,(pic enclosed.)
    I believe it is like the type you would hook up into TV inputs,the yellow red and white ones. Question is, can I get a cable that is a male connector of one of those to a 3.5mm to hook into headphone jacks? This is a cable just for ipods that I believe would work, and I assume the blue part is the power source(I do have that "tooth" configuration)... But I'd prefer to just have a 3.5mm jack so I can use other types of equipment too.

    Also, part of the back of the unit is very hot, to the point where I couldn't touch it for a minute or so after disconnecting it. Is that normal? I'm way too Dutch to buy a new headunit right now, which I realize would probably solve both these problems. Thanks Foo.

    What head unit you got?

    Those are usually mono so you'd want a Y-connector between the mini-plug and that if that is, in fact an input.

    Something tells me it's an output for subs or something, actually, but I don't know much about car stuff.

    Spare a quarter?

    It's a crappy Blaupunkt Key West unit, the PO of my car put it in. You are probably right about it not being an input. I think I may have just found the adapter I need.
