I have 3 MDXs'.... My 2008 (above) had the parasitic draw coming from the bluetooth Part # 39770-stx-a011-m1. I disconnected it and the draw stopped.... I am wondering if this is worth replacing? I Would only use the bluetooth to play music off my phone. I cannot seem to locate a AUX cord input anywhere???? The center Storage between the seats has a AC outlet?? Wondering if that can be replaced by ordering a AUX input and replacing the outlet? If I can replace, Is it Plug and Play? Other than that I love these cars, they are easy to work on and very safe cars.

I had the same issue in my 2008 tech. I unplugged the BT module and left it unplugged. I replaced it with a Kinivo BTC455 for streaming and phone calls. There is no 1/4" aux connection. You have to use an RCA y adapter to the red and white inputs on the back of the center console. That's how I have the Kinivo hooked up. Works perfectly except you just have to hit the aux button on the stereo to use it.

Forgot to mention, use RCA elbow adaptors so passengers to kick the cables and break the pin off inside the port. I learned that the hard way. Had to extract it using the hot nail method

Thank you man, this looks like a great work-around. Wondering if anything with rear entertainment system needs to be turned on? Or are the RCA jack always "hot"? Thanks LEE
