The Lexus RX is a luxury crossover sport utility vehicle that was introduced in 1998. Mp3 players have changed the way we transport our music libraries. They allow us to carry thousands of songs in the palms of our hands, and peruse entire libraries in a matter of seconds. Mp3 players can be connected to car stereos in a variety of ways. Some are cheaper and easier than others, and some produce better-quality sound than others.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Purchase a cassette tape adaptor. If the RX has a tape deck, this is the easiest way to make a connection. Insert the tape into the tape player on the car's stereo, and plug the other end into the headphone jack of the Mp3 player. Operate the Mp3 player normally, and the sound will come through the RX's speakers.

  2. 2

    Purchase an FM transmitter. It will allow you to beam a short-range broadcast of the Mp3 player's audio output to the radio antenna of the Lexus. Search for an FM station with plenty of static. Tune the transmitter to that station. Plug the transmitter into the Mp3 player's headphone jack. Power on the Mp3 player, and operate it normally. For any technical difficulties, consult the transmitter's instruction manual.

  3. 3

    Drive the Lexus to a car audio specialist. Inquire about installing an auxiliary cable or Mp3 player interface. Decide between the auxiliary cable and the interface. The cable is the cheaper option, and will produce excellent quality sound from the player to the Lexus' speakers. However, the interface is the most high-tech way to integrate the Mp3 player into the car's stereo system. This option is only available for certain Mp3 players. It allows you to scan the Mp3 player via the screen of the stereo, making for convenient operation of the player.
