Your first option is to replace the radio with an aftermarket. First and easiest. Second option, (You must be able to tear apart the radio and be able to solder). Just bad solder joints. Usually at where the face and radio meet. I have fixed many of them. Most don't want to pay for the fix. Takes time. Yeah, you loose some stuff, but aftermarket is cheaper, depending on the kind of stereo you put in.

I own an old Philips radio set, can I fix a modern aux port onto the set to accept 7mm jack plugs?


Not sure what the gram mark would be, but the loud speaker would definitely be an output. You will need an input to add a 7mm input jack. Does the radio have an aux input setting?

Audio on aux device


Connect a 3.5 mm (1/8 in) cable
from the auxiliary device to the
auxiliary input jack. When a
device is connected, the system
automatically begins playing audio
from the device over the vehicle spekers.

How do I get the MP3 player to work in a 2007 Nissan Quest?


you said CAN , i bet you meant CAN'T or CAN NOT. right?
the AUX port is just a line input, analog audio input,
it dont know MP3 .
it only amplies the analog audio found there.
you connect any device, to AUX. push play on the device.
then put car radio in to AUX input mode and play. the audio.
that is all there is to it.
the external device does all the heavy lifting, reading a file, and decoding it (mp3 decode) and then sends raw analog audio out.

the cable is sold and radioshack, or walfart or many other stores,
Target, most MP3 players, come with this cable,
they use mini phone plugs, stereo, type,. (3 contacts)

2010 Chevy silverado radio switches to aux input device while listening to radio ! How do I fix it ?


There is a relatively common issue on these headunits, the aux connection can develop an electrical short, and it will act possessed and change sources like that. Unfortunately the best solution is to replace the headunit.

Source: Chevy just warrantied my headunit for this exact reason.

2009 Chev Uplander radio keeps quitting and displaying Aux Input Device


There is a short in the aux input 'hole' that receives the wire. When you plug in the wire from your mp3 the radio automatically switches to aux. Since there is a short in the plug when you hit bumps or the vibration etc. the radio thinks that it is receiving a plug in and switches to aux. You will have to have the radio physically repaired (it will have to soldered) to repair the short. I own 2 of these vans and my parents own one and all three have had this issue. It is usually created from a wire plugged into the port hole and getting bumped or something which causes the port to loosen. Over time the metal connections inside short out. Just my two cents.

My radio has an aux button but the car does not have a jack for aux play? am i looking in right place or do i have to have one installed?


07 Ranger and Mustang were the first vehicles to come with a factory installed aux jack. All prior vehicles had to have one installed. I believe the Ford kit was called Trip Tunes.
