I actually have the same question. There is a bus audio input on the back (L & R phono) I have a cable to go from 1/8" stereo to this. There is also a bus control input. These are for an external cd changer. I wonder if anyone has tried to use the bus audio input without the control input.

You need to have a INPUT to send sound from the ipod into the unit. The output is for an external amplifier for a sub.

Press source button repeatedly to select "CD" or "MD" be aware that in order to connecting Ipod to a car stereo you will need to use an extension cable with 3.5 mm stereo connectors on each end to connect iPod to your car stereo system's aux input, or use a cassette adapter if your car stereo doesn't have a sound input jack. Either of these items can be purchased at stores that sell car stereo accessories. good luck!

I am trying to remove the CDX-CA400 from a Ford f450 chassis--without success. I have used a screw driver in the slot on the left side but it doesn't dislodge. Advice?


You need a radio removal kit which has the two tools to press the buttons on each side which are in the tiny slots and will allow you to slide the radio out.

The optic inside the CD player may be dirty or damp, this is the part that reads the data from the cd, you can try cd cleaning discs or you may have get an engineer to open it and clean it with an alcohol swab. The optic could also be faulty which will be cheaper to buy a new cd player.

There is a auxiliary button on the sony cdx-m8800. Is there a way to hook up an IPOD? The stereo also has MP3 written on the inside face. Thanks


Contrary to the below Expert's testimony, the UK CDX-M880 has a REAR AUX connector that will enable you to play your iPod through your car's stereo.

You will not be able to control the ipod's interface through the radio. You will have to use the control on the iPod .

You require a Male 3.5mm extension cable like the following...

How do you switch between the front aux and the line in on the back of unit


According to the manual:
"In the case of a CD/MD changer or SAT tuner being connected: when "source" is pressed the connected device (MD, XM, or SR) will appear in the display, depending on which device is connected. Then if "MODE" is pushed you can switch the changer or change the SAT tuner band."
