Can't get iPod to play through factory sound system, pls help

Greetings, my tblazer ext has the Bose system with the rear enteraintment system (RSE), the DVD located on the overhead between the two front seats has 3 RCA input jacks which everyone tells me I can use to connect my iPod, but nothing plays when I use a RCA to 1/8in adapter, turn on the dvd player/rse/aux function on the head unit. CC installers told me they would have to disconnect my RSE to add a cable to play my Ipod. Is this the only way other than through FM interference? Is there a hiddin USB or 1/8in adapter hidden under the tblazer consoles or gloveboxes that I haven't found yet? please advise, thank you in advance, pete

    I tried that. thank you for the input though. I'm now thinking maybe I need one of those iPod car kits rather than the simple cable they showed me at CC which they said would disconnect the rear entertainment system. Will prob check BB tomorrow if tonight's icestorm isn't too bad.

    Problem solved, it was a matter of making sure the sources all agreed at the upper and lower rear consoles and then with the lower console powered off, the iPod is controled at the head unit and heard just like any other part of the system. However, stock system only plays whatever is selected, the head unit does nother more than amplify and control the volume. It does not read the iPod as do some of the iPod 'ready' after market or newer factory systems. Thanks again for all your time and help. regards... -j

    I simply cannot get my ipod to play through the audio RCA jacks in the rear entertainment system of a 2005 Sierra. It seems like it should be a no-brainer but the source never selects to auxillary on the rear unit.

Can I bypass a factory Bose amp in a 2005 Silverado ext cab without installing another amp and the radio still work?


Bose Amps Are Very Propriatory ie: wire very Different, with special ends--They Can Be Replaced--However Will Cost More Than Worth--You Can Get OEM Amp From Salvage Yard--Which Is Much More Cost Effective. If Bose Speakers Are Present. Sound Quality Will Be Very Poor Or Nil If You Bypass Amp.

The dvd is asking for a pass code, is there one>


no, That's a firmware issue. You'll have to take it to a Volvo repair shop and have them update the firmware. They should have received a DVD with an update program on it.
