    I found a mess when I went to add the iSimple wire for my ipod. I believe the previous owner tapped into the accessory plug wires by the seat to add a GPS. Some of the red wires look they jump between two other wires and I don't know why he didn't just connect them. I plan to use some posi-tap type connectors to try and clean this up. (Not much good at soldering)

    My questions are: Do you think there is any reason I can't just eliminate the jumper wires? Will I still be able to connect to and use the accessory plug?

    I posted this on another forum in case you see it there but I didn't get any replies so I thought maybe you folks wouldn't mind taking a look at it. Thanks

    Its hard to tell from pictures as to what goes where. Electrical tape is not a good connection however. Without actually seeing it, it will be hard to point you in the right direction.

    Thanks for looking. I will try to draw up a diagram of what is going where.

    IMO get rid of any wires you are not using, they will cause you a problem at some time, and make permanent repairs on your wires

    I think I'm going to try and find someone local who can show me a good way to solder and shrink wrap the wires.
