Cool FM Transmitter Kit in 02 RAM 1500

I received a Stiletto 100 for X-mas and thanks to the FCC I can barely hear it through my stock head unit, even with the external base antennae. So I went to Best Buy and picked up a Sirius FM Transmitter Kit. Got the stock radio out and of course ran into a big snag. The stock antenna has what looks like a coaxial type plug, which isn't compatible with the Sirius FM Transmitter Kit I purchased.

Has anyone else run into this and if so what do you do to resolve it? I searched the forums and didn't couldn't find anything relative to my dilemma.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks for your replies. I spoke to a friend that owns an install shop and he recommended the same adaption connectors. I'm concerned about still hearing distortion/noise though. wizardsrevenge-So I make the right choice, which connector did you go with? I viewed the site you posted the link to and don't see anything for my truck. I read the other thread and wasn't able to determine which you used. My `02 1500 Sport 4x4 has a single CD player and Infinity speaker system. Thanks again.

Default Order

I ordered the CHRY02-AUX and the 3.5mm to RCA wire http://www.ancoautopurchase.com/ select chrysler adapters and then CHRY02-Aux,

check your Dodge owners manual to see what code you have for the stereo. I had the RAZ (cd, eq, tape deck, infinity). Just ask the tech when you place the order.

Thumbs up

I finally got things sorted out after driving all over hell's half acre. I found an electronics shop with the connectors, but no wire. Finally found a hole in the wall car stereo shop that had the adapter cables for only $10.00! The sound is clear and the installation came out clean. I wasn't able to use the bracket that came with the Sirius kit so I fabricated my own. I'll post pics of it eventually.

Here's what I ended up with to set up my Stiletto100 in my `02 RAM 1500 4x4 Sport:
1 - Sirius Car Kit with custom bracket.
1 - Generic "CarStereo Wiring Harness" antenna adapter cable with part# CR-7.
1 - "Metra Antenna Works Chrysler Vehicle Antenna Adapter Cable" with part# 40-CR10.

Thanks for the help and for for these forums!

Here's a pic of my install. I made the bracket out of aluminum which I riveted to the A/C panel. The bracket hides the rivets and the docking station is velcroed to the bracket. I drilled a 1/2" hole in the top of the storage compartment for the wires to come through to the docking station. I can tuck them away into the storage area if I need to remove docking station.

The way it all sits I can easily reach the stereo volume/power knob as well as the Stiletto, I don't get any glare on the screen, it's angled towards me and I don't have a bulky bracket that sticks way out from the panel.
