Many car stereos have more new connections that MP3 playerslike the iPod can be connected and played through the stereo. For new carradio, you only need to connect the device and the MP3 player. If you have anold stereo, connect your iPod or connect a 3.5 mm stereo cable or FMtransmitter. Connect iPod directly to the stereo with a stereo cable willresult in better sound quality on the FM transmitter, which can be interruptedor static signal.
AUX 1. Find an AUX port. The AUX is a hole, only small to belocated on your car radio face. (The size is perfect for connecting headphonesor an auxiliary cable.)
2. Connect the 3.5 mm stereo cable into the hole in front ofyour car.
3. Connect the other end into the hole stereo AUX jack /headphone jack on top of your iPod.
4. Connect your iPod.
5. Activate the AUX input. This will be different for eachcar. You may need to field through your input options (e.g., FM, AM, CD, etc.)to access the AUX. Or you may need for your stereo pressing the Menu button.Then, the options for auxiliary input field to the AUX input as possible.
6. Find a song on your iPod and press the Play button whenthe auxiliary input is activated. If you do not hear anything, make sure thevolume on the iPod device and radio. If the iPod is playing your song, you'llsee the song progresses on the iPod screen.
FM Transmitter 1. Find an FM transmitter that is compatible with the iPod.So let your FM transmitter near your car radio.
2. Connect the iPod to the FM transmitter.
3. Tune the radio to your car radio has a frequency thatonly static, then the vote of the same frequency channel using the buttons +and -.
4. Connect your iPod. Then a number and press"Play." Make sure to turn all your volume on your iPod. You should beable to use his music. If not, find a new frequency until you find one thatworks with the iPod and the transmitter.
delving into the guts of your iPod, check to make sure the hold switch
isn't activated. If the hold switch is on, the iPod will ignore any
input on the click wheel and refuse to do anything. If your iPod's
problem isn't so easily solved, read on.
your iPod won't turn on, especially if it has not been used recently,
you may simply have a drained battery. Plug your iPod into your computer
or AC adapter and see if anything happens. Ideally your iPod will
recognize it has been connected to a power source and charge its
battery. If it will no longer charge, the battery must be replaced.
is possible that it appears nothing is happening because the display is
bad. If you hold the iPod up to your ear you should be able to hear the
hard drive spinning. If the iPod sounds like it is working properly but
nothing is visible, it is possible the display is bad and must be replaced
Bad logic board
If your iPod does nothing when plugged into a computer, the problem most likely lies in the logic board.
Bad click wheel connection
the click wheel is not seated correctly, it is possible that the iPod
will not boot. Be sure that the bar on the click wheel is completely
flipped down to ensure a positive connection.
These cars are fitted with a Delphi common rail system that is known for various faults including yours, you need to have a sealed rail test done on the injectors as they are probably leaking off to much causing low pressure in the common rail,when the car is warm,they also suffer with injector code loss ,no reason they get confused this normally gives poor performance and high fuel consumption ,if the injectors are fine check the system for air leaks in the fuel supply pipes and check the leak off pipes for leaks,even the smallest leak can let air in,if the engine light has come on get the codes read ,
You need to switch the video out seeting on the iPod, simple. It is located in Video/video settings/TV Out. Change the setting to "On". Problem solved. However, if you have an iPod that is less than 1 year old, nothing will work, iPod blocked this ability to change to "On" and is set on "Off" permanently.
You can go two routes for this, wireless or cabled. Wireless is of course good because it has no cables but the sound quality is not that great - ok, but not great. So my suggestion is to go the cabled route which actuall ends up being neater anyway and gives pretty much 1:1 quality. There's plenty of people out there that creat adaptors and cables but check these guys out:
Using the iPod AV Cable
Step 11Use the Apple iPod AV cable. This plugs into the RCA ports on your TV or VCR. This is by far the easiest method.
Step 22Connect the AV cable into your iPod. Plug the small end into the iPod where the earbuds would go.
Step 33Connect the red RCA plug. This goes into the right audio input of the television or VCR. The colors should match.
Step 44Connect the white RCA plug. This plugs into the left audio input of your TV. Connect the yellow RCA plug. This goes into the video input of your TV.
Step 55Begin playing a video on the iPod.
