Let me see take the radio out so you can open it up. Take the radio apart
till you get to where the CD player connects to the radios main circuit board. On the CD player side of the connection look on the circuit board and you should r.out and l.out or something similar you can tie in a auxiliary jack by soldering a wire to each of these posts or to where they connect on the main board (I found the main board to be easier). Then go to radio shack or somewhere and get the aux port wire it to your wires. Go download a silent CD and burn it. put this CD in your CD slot and hook up your i pod to the aux port and your radio will think it is playing a cd while your ipod is putting out the signal the radio plays.
Sorry if this confusing working on a how-to-post that i will include pics and more description in.

It isn't all that hard I did it in about 20 minutes and it is basically free where a modulator costs 50 to 100 dollars or something like that

Anyway here is the how-to
