Re: I can't select aux when I plug my ipod into my...
I think this can be done with the stereo on but you have to hold down either the e button or 1 of the buttons on the right side of face(not audio)maybe and a menu will pop up and you should run into a screen that ask off on or off you will want it on and then you should be able to access ur ipod by pressing the source button.Hope this helps.

The type of plug on the front aux is a 2.5mm plug similar to what cell phones use. You need a stereo 2.5mm to 3.5mm adapter, then you can run a chord with a 3.5mm jack on both ends to an iPod or some other type of mp3 player.
The RCA jacks on the back of the Pioneer DEH-1500 are preamp outputs, not inputs. They are to connect an external amplifier for additional speakers or subwoofers.
The output from your iPod is probably "bleeding over" into the receiver detector stage. When the antenna is disconnected, the signal passes into the amp by itself. Connecting the antenna provides enough signal so that both are amplified.
To connect the iPod, you need to purchase a wireless iPod adapter, or a new head unit that includes an "AUX" input or a dedicated adapter for the iPod.
You can get replacement wiring harnesses from Pioneer (www.pioneerelectronics.com) or from a local stereo shop that sells Pioneer product. Also, check Ebay...there are often times harnesses for sale for any model of radio from all across the country.
Turn the ignition key to on or accessory position, turn the stereo off, then hold the function key for a couple seconds, the stereo will turn on and you scroll through the menu with the left and right arrow buttons and change settings with the up and down buttons
