Default aux line in pins ????

Could someone please tell me which pins are line in for a 7L5T-18C869-ac. I have a '07 ranger and given the new radio for the truck.

When I press the aux button, it says line in. My base ranger did not have the line in jack. I assume that they are in the 20 pin connector, but cant find any info.

haha

Yea I kinda get that

Why I am asking is that I replaced the basic as they get radio with the new one (cd mp3) from a different truck.

I know that it supports direct line in via the 20 pin port on the radio, I just do not know which ones are used.

If no one knows here I have two options, 1) pull the radio and do some internal digging or 2) find the time to go to a scrap yard and ohm out the pins via the lin in jack.

It would appear that not too many people know much about the 20 pin connector.

3) look into purchasing an adapter.
aux line in doesn't require separate pins. It switches selected input toward a common output, no?
AM/FM same output. AM/FM/CD/AUX same output.
Did you already do a search about using an adapter?

from what I have read the 2007 models starting with these radios doesn't need an adapter module. It just connects directly to the radio. Guess I will go to the scrap yard and ohm out a line in plug.
