    I just bought a 2007 cx9, it came with SIRIUS Satellite Radio (I don't want it), but because it is installed I can't use my aux port. does anyone know how to disconnect the satellite radio and re-connect the aux port. Or do I really have to buy the "switching box"?

    If I were you, I would talk to my dealer (the guy who sold you the CX9) nicely to see if he/she can pull the Sirrus unit out and connect the Aux jack.
    That way, you get what you want, and have an Sirrus unit (for the dealer as parts) or for you to sell it on eBay. Make sure you have the whole accessories of Sirrus if you want to sell it on eBay.
    Depending on your negotiation with the salesperson, he/she may or may not charge you for the labor cost (get behind the center console and reconnect wirings).

    Does this also apply to the 2008 CX9. All AWD have the factory tow pre needed?

    Allow me to reiterate,
    all 2009 AWD (Sports, Touring, or Grand Toruing) models have Tow Prep as standard. No so for 2008 or 2007.

    You state AWD 2009 Tow prep is standard - where is the harness located or is the tail that plugs into it to give your a flat 4 wire connector available from Mazda?

    I don't have a 2009 model.
    My 2008 did not come with Tow package.
    Here is a thread you may follow or ask question.
  • For the 2009 with the wiring harness, what do i need to complete the harness. I assume buying a $50 wiring harness from Etrailer designed the CX-9 is overkill (part 118442, because it has the mazda connectors to plug into the lights harness.

    Or can I go with a generic harness like this for $25 and tap into the wiring harness mentioned -

    Or just the $5 harness here

    The answer for 2009/2010 CX-9 all AWD models or FWD GT models : You can buy Mazda OEM wiring harness 0000-8E-N13. Picture is here:
  • Looking to surprise my wife for Christmas and install satellite radio in her 2009 CX-9. Since the dealer wants $350 for parts and $360 for labor I thought I'd try to do it myself. Please stop me if this is ill advised. Otherwise, can anyone tell me which OEM parts I need, where I can get them cheapest and where I can find step-by-step instructions for installation?
