Missing RCA jack in left pocket.

Post by Fuzzyt »



I added the 2 port USB to the pocket but for the life of me I cannot find the RCA jack to plug into the bluetooth adaptor I have.. I have a 2014 base model and I had thought that all the wings came with that plug. So if it is truely not there, where do I get one and will it be plug and play or do I have to do some wiring ? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

There is a factory connection in the harness under the left glove box. It's in the same rubber boot that holds the connector to provide power to a cigarette lighter type or USB type power post. They are both in that boot. You can plug in a headphone type audio cable, similar to this one:

This cable is not included with the 2014 but the harness connection is there. Plug in the accessory cable and then route the cable to where you need it.

Thanks Andy. When I installed the USB port I did notice the other connector, didn't even think about what it might be for. Got the cable ordered.
