Volvo dealer installed ipod kit; will not play ipod

I had an ipod kit dealer-installed in my volvo. One day the kit just stopped working; the ipod worked when disconnected. The dealer replaced the kit. In the last three months I've had two subsequent failures by the ipod kit. the ipod itself still plays when disconnected from the car. The last failure was a couple of days ago as I started the car with the ipod connected to the ipod kit cable. The dashboard display momentarily showed "CD FAIL" and then "INSERT CD". I've disconnected and re-connected the ipod but no change.

Ipod not working on a JVC KD331 cd/radio car player


Check your stereo for a button that says "Aux" or a "Function" button. It could also say something else depending on the radio. The one in my 93' Mustang says "Band" and in my truck it simply says "iPod" Just mess around a little bit and see what you find.

Iphone connection via usb


USB wires are universal, so No you shuouldn't need another wire.
My friend had a similar problem with his new AUDI 58 plate.
(shares the same "VAG" parts bin as your car)

He found that his new ipod was not compatible, and Audi said they need to upgrade their software. Audi dealer Re-imbursed him the cost of ipod.

check with your Dealer and find out which versions of ipod ARE compatable.
i've noticed quite a few things with Ipod compatibility dont support the iphone. & now there's a new iphone just to make things more difficult.
Good Luck.

I have an Alpine head unit and a 30gb iPod Classic, it used to play through the stereo but now it just charges it, and on the head unit it says searching and won't find anything, I reset my iPod...


What model Alpine do you have? Have you gone into the setup menu and poke around and see if you have a setting (AUX +) and if you do turn it off and see. Than if that doesn't do the trick if you have an Alpine dealer close by see if you can "borrow" a KCA-422 full speed iPod cable and quickly plug that in and if it works than it is the cable. But if it still does not recognize the iPod it is a problem in the head unit and needs to be repaired..

I have a Vauxhall Insignia SE which comes with all the steering wheel/dashboard controls for phone connectivity. However, I did not get the factory fitted bluetooth option. I wanted to install this now but...


Halfords Parrot kits integrate into the system all beit the steering wheel controls dont work. The audio is muted for incoming calls and the car speakers are utilised. Works well.

Ford Fiesta IPod connection problem


You need the specific cable from Ford, part number 8M5J-19C142-AA, Finis: 1529487 which has a USB and an aux jack. It costs about £19. You need to plug in both aux and USB and then connect the other end to your ipod. You can then scroll through the playlists etc using the dashboard controls. When you have selected your choice, press the OK button and the ipod should play. You can use the steering wheel controls to move forward or back through the tracks and to change the volume. The instructions in the handbook are not very helpful.
