You can connect your IPOD in this radio.All you need is an Apple Composite AV Cable part# MB129LL/A. It's about $50 online. Once you have that cable, you can connect it to the AUX Input jack in front of your radio and then you can play your tracks from your IPOD.
1. To play AND control your iPod from this system, you need to purchase a separate cable. Model is CD-I200 and it plugs into the back of the unit and the other end plugs into the dock connector of your iPod. (Assuming your iPod has a dock connector)
2. To play your iPod only through the system use the AUX1 mini stereo connector. Unfourtunately the AUX1 input is located on the rear of the unit. You need a separate cable with a mini plug on both ends. (Will look like a headphone plug on both ends). You will probably have to pull out the system to be able to plug in the cable unless you are lucky and you have tons of room under your dash to be able to reach the rear of the unit. Make sure you get a cable that is long enough to reach from under your dash to where you want to keep your iPod in reach.
actually, chrysler/dodge has factory Infinity sound systems installed. The nice part about these systems is that you dont have to bypass the amplifiers in order to put a new radio in, but simply power up the amp by hooking up the amp turn on wire at the harness. The alpine should have 2 blue wires coming off of the back, one that is solid, the other with a white stripe. The one that is solid only has 12v when the fm/am radio is on (used for power antenna) but cuts off when other sources are used (cd,aux,ipod). My guesses are, you have the amp wire on the vehicle harness (blue) tied into this wire, instead of the BLUE/WHITE wire on the alpine which has 12v as long as the radio is on. i hope this solves your problem, 9 times out of 10 on a chrysler this is it.
There is a RCA cable that comes off the back of the radio and also another cable for 3.5mm (mini-stereo jack) that also comes off the back of the radio. The RCA jacks can be used for "AUX" or "Sub-woofer" and the 3.5mm jack is just for "AUX". Your ipod can use the audio output jack or the headphone jack and plug that into the 3.5 mm jack on the back of the radio. You will need a "3.5mm male" to "3.5mm male" stereo cord that can be purchased at Radio Shack or Best Buy. Then you select "AUX" on the display with the source button to listen to it. You may need to go into the menu and activate the "AUX" input. Check your owners manual for details.
Try putting the unit in standby via the "SRC" button FIRST..., then press the menu button and cycle through to the "AUX 1" option and activate this....then press menu button again. When the unit is next switched on, you should have an "AUX" option accessible via the "SRC" button which will cycle through all of the availale modes ....standby-tuner-cd-aux etc etc.
