I am not sure how much RM360/= is in my currency but it does sound expensive for a connecting lead i-pod to usb.

If your lead works ok with other usb sockets in other cars, I suspect there is nothing at all wrong with the lead. That would indicate a problem with the car.

The only comment I am able to make about this is as follows...

A friend has two sons and one son is very interested in cars and had bought some very good software to allow him to troubleshoot and modify his cars.
My friend had bought a SEAT car. The car used many VW parts and software - his SEAT was in effect a cheap VW Golf but did not have the refinements of the Golf such as auto-opening/closing windows.
Purely from interest my friend and his son connected the laptop to the car and discovered all the Golf refinements were built in but switched off and they were able to use the advanced software to simply switch them on and turn the car into the more expensive VW Golf - except for the SEAT badges and trim.

Perhaps someone forgot to switch on the usb refinement on your car?

SOURCE: I own a 2009 Hyundai Elantra and was told I could

I have used the Apple iPod cable with no problem in the Elantra USB port with an iPod Nano & iPod Classic. You have to change the music settings, skip songs, etc. from the iPod which is distracting while driving.

I purchased the cord made by Hyundai at the dealership, that plugs into both USB and aux port. The music titles, album info etc show up on the radio screen, and you can use the buttons on the radio to change the tunes, view artists, albums... (safer while driving!). I've seen sellers on eBay that sells the Hyundai made one (cheapest starts @ $24+ w/ s/h - link here), as well as copycat ones - I wouldn't buy a copycat one (my opinion).

Do you have a case on your iPods? I have experienced the "reading error" with the Hyundai cord on my son's iPod Classic (he has a leather case on it). It seems to do that because the plug going in to the iPod is not making full contact with the iPod because of the case. When he takes the case off and reconnects, there are no further problems.

Hope this helps, Good luck!

Unable to connect Bluetooth to 2010 passat

When you try to pair your phone to the car via Bluetooth are you allowing the car to see it by enabling the phone visibility setting.
To do this go into the phones setting find the blue tooth setting then select visibility this allows the car to see it for about 1 minute 59 seconds then go to the cars settings on the dash cluster to pair the phone it should now find it.

Interior parts

Look on Ebay. I bought all kinds of used parts for my Mercedes, (3) 300 TDS and a 300SD. Parts are plentiful for these models and very affordable on Ebay, or perhaps even Craigs List. There is a Mercedes Benz internet forum where members post their sales and needs. I don't know what the import laws are in Malaysia, but I cannot imagine the imposts are high on used auto parts.
