I'll bet there's a small (DIN type?) plug somewhere for the CD-changer also?

The CD-changer 'talks' to the deck on that plug,and uses it for control,etc.
Sometimes it simple to 'trick' the deck,like adding a resistor across two pins,etc.
Most of the time it isn't,and the Changer and Deck use a specific format (I2C,or something.) so you'll need some IC's and stuff to tell it to activate the CD-input.

There are companies that make little plug-adapter things that you can plug into your deck and make use of the extra inputs,Google should help you find some.

Also,There might be a "homebrew" version of one,depending on the brand/model of the deck..Google should help you there too.
I've seen a few projects around online,so it can't be too hard,but it probably depends heavily on the model of deck.

Hi

If you are trying to attach the iPod to the HU, another way (slightly costlier) is to get a preamp which usually has 2 sources for input.

The preamp also has an auxillary input where the iPod can be plugged in and totally bypass the HU.

Then you can use the selectable switch on the faceplate of the preamp to determine the source, ie. HU or the Aux (iPod)

Hope this helps.

Cheers
