    Hi all!

    Heres what i want to do: i have 2010 dodge Caliber and it has a port in the glovebox that allows you to plug a 'UCI' cable into it which is Dodges fancy name for a proprietary ipod cable. With an ipod plugged in it allows you to listen to your music through the stereo. I dont have or want an ipod but i do like to listen to music in my car via my android phone a blackberry wireless bluetooth stereo gateway that lets you stream music to it. It has an input for usb charger and a 1/8" stereo output plug. Right now i have it rigged up to the input on the stereo and the cars ac jack. It works but ideally i would like to mod the uci cable so i can install everything neatly into the glovebox. I cut the tip off of the cable and exposed the inards which are:

    and a silver/copper wire tbat i assume is ground.

    The cable looks like this:

    So can anyone help me splice together this ipod cable with a mini usb tip and 1/8" audio cable?

    There is a lot of discussion about this on a Dodge forum. Take a look at this and see if there are any good answers there. I only looked at the first page.

    That thread is actually dealing with connecting a uci module to the back of a old style dodge radio.

    The prob. is we have no idea what the purpose of each of those wires are... ie.
    which ones are + and - are there actual left and right audio lines there or data lines.

    only the Dodge vehicle service info would tell you that. Then you would need the pin connection identification of your blackberry connector

    which is probably why Steve suggested you ask questions on that dodge forum :)
