    I've got a 2002 Explorer and a Pioneer CD player and wanted to know the cheapest way to play my ipod in my car...I know many people have asked this question, and I am the next one to ask it.

    Thanks

    It depends on if you can actually connect your iPod to your car. Is there a circular hole near your CD player that is about 1/2 cm. thick? If so, it is probably a microphone port, and you can buy a cable that will connect your iPod to there, and allow to play music. But considering the car is a 2002, you may very well have no microphone port.

    I'll check....I did install a Pioneer CD player in the car in favor of the stock one that came with it. I'll check...If not are the FM things you plugin for like 40 bucks even worth it?

    I say they're not worth it, since you already have a CD player. You might as well just take your iPod music, put it on iTunes, and then burn it all to a few CD's. I'm nearly positive that you can do that. Then just take the CD's into the car. That will be TONS cheaper than $40.

    Or i could spend some cash money on the modulator thingy for the back of my radio i thought that would allow me to use it in the car...no?

    Sorry, but I am not sure what that is exactly. But I still say that you just do the CD thing that I mentioned above. Most of the people I know do that, and they find it really convenient, especially since most CD players hold 4-6 CD's at once. That way, their entire iPod database is there at once.

    Okay, I found what you were talking about. That may actually be a better deal than the CD's. They will both probably cost the same amount of money, but the modulator thing will be directly from your iPod, and will require less work.

    I found some at this address:

    Hopefully that is what you meant with the modulator things.

    Auxillery inputs did not come out for car stereos until 2005. Read that somewhere.

    ^ or buy a Ipod FM Transmitter for your vehicle, bit static however.

    What is the model of your CD player? I fit quite a lot of car audio, and there is nearly almost a way to connect toyour iPod if the stereo was bought in the last 4-5 years. It may take some wiring but you should be able to sort it.
