Hi Ireni,

You will need to install an aux input.

To do this, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUX2Iq4OfQk

I already saw this video prior to accessing your site. The radio I have is for a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 which is not the same as what is shown in the video. I was hoping for a direct answer about the empty connector in the back and whether that can be used in any way. I certainly don't want to pay $16 for an answer I already obtained from you-tube.

Hi,

It is the same with all models - the empty connector needs to have an aux input installed if you want to use it.

Can you elaborate on where to find the connector that will fit this specific radio? (see attached)
Are you saying there is a specific connector out there that will fit in the above open slot with 3.5mm aux on the other end?
Expert:  ElectronicsPete replied 1 year ago.

No, there is no specific connector that will fit that slot - you will need to make up a custom cable and splice it into the existing wiring.

You can get a standard wiring harness to fit the slot from Crutchfield or a similar site, and then modify it:
