I've got a 1998 Rav 4. My question is two fold. I'm wishing to connect my mp3 device to the car's stereo. I understand for a car as old as mine, it requires some kind of auxiliary cable. One, where can I locate it in the car? Two, after doing some research a site said that I would need an auxiliary adapter in order for me to connect the device to the car. Do I need that adapter or will an ordinary auxiliary cable work?

An auxiliary cable is useless unless the factory stereo has the port already. For a stock head unit you need an aux input adapter to provide a jack to plug you cable into. These are wired into the back of the head unit, usually into an external cd changer port, to provide a audio signal to the stereo. However sometimes its easier just to upgrade the head unit to one with an aux port. Then you just need the cable to connect your device to it.
