Here is the Clarion FM200. It has two radio frequencies only, 88.7 and
89.1 but it is plugged in series with the antenna so it works well (there
are radio broadcasts beside those frequencies and it does not mix). The
input are RCA cables so an adaptor is needed to go to stereo 3.5 mm plug
When you install, you put the radio antenna wire into the Clarion
antenna socket and the Clarion antenna plug into the radio: This way the
antenna goes into the FM200 and the FM200 goes into the radio.
The FM200 needs 12V that is not constant not to drain the battery, I
used the 12v outlet. I set the FM200 switch into the dash but it could be
put anywhere else.
I tried both the 88.7 and 89.1 fm radio frequencies. Both had radio
stations next to the setting but the 89.1 worked best.
All wires are from the Clarion (shifter console) to the OEM radio.
Except the 'aux in' which I used a stereo 3.5 mm socket which I put in the
arm rest. Because I wanted to put the mp3 player in the pouch behind the
seats. The wires for it goes under the carpet (for about 12 inches)
between the shifter console and the arm rest.
Here is the Clarion installed with double face tape to the carpet in
the shifter console. There is more than enough room

The Clarion FM200 input is two RCA plugs so I had to put an "3.5mm plug
to 3.5mm plug adaptor" glued into the arm rest and a "3.5 mm plug to two
RCA plug adaptor" to plug from the Clarion to the adaptor glued to the arm

Here is the stereo input 3.5 mm plug into the arm rest (between the
seats). I routed the wires under the carpet, between the shifter and the
