OK, problem solved. Apparently the frame I thought was ground was not. I just grounded it to the braided radio ground and sound happens now! Little bit of whine in it but that is supposedly something not grounded? HUH - go figure the radio ground is not ground?? Anyway it works pretty well. My only complaint now is the volume - it won't go anywhere the level Pantera should be played at. And some songs are noticeably softer - Judas Priest 'Victim of Changes' is really low. Could it just be IHeartRadio or maybe my android just doesn't push enough through? When I play regular radio I get plenty of volume. Unfortunately I get plenty of yakking, commercials, etc.

The tabs are on the bottom of the aux input. One for each wire going to the radio. You can see it here:
I am not sure how to test it - will those have continuity between each other or from the ground tab - on the side? It was a two-pack so I guess I can try the other one and just not solder anything until I see what happens. I am pretty sure I got the wires connected on the radio side. I wrapped it around the bare spots and taped 'em both up. I can get back in there easy enough and play with them a little I suppose.
This hack seemed pretty simple but apparently so am I
My cheap 6 mo Sirius plan expires this month and I have no interest in continuing. The signal is spotty and even $30 for 6 months is pricey considering there are only three channels I ever listen to.

What tabs are you talking about. All ya had to do from what I can see is melt the casing off the wire and solder the aux wires to the open spots.

mod not working - no sound
I cannot get this to work. I know this is old but someone has to resurrect it
I have an 04, 6 cd player and have a current Sirius subscription. I found the brown/white and green/white wires, scraped 'em off and wired up to the aux plug. The two bottom connections go to the two wires and the side one to ground - same frame the radio is mounted to. I haven't soldered anything for about 45 years but the wires all seem solid on the aux port connections. Could I have gotten the tabs too hot when I soldered the wires to them? It is only a cheap RS aux port - bought it right before they went out of business!
XM radio tuned to channel 0, phone is playing music right up until I plug the cable in. Nuthin'. The cable is brand new out of the package. What are the first steps to troubleshoot this? I have one more aux port ... maybe new wires and just connect them up to see if anything different happens? Other ideas??
