Subwoofer doesn't play through ipod, only radio and cd's

I have a 2002 jeep wrangler that has a factory sub under the center console. Everything works great with the Alpine head unit but when playing songs off the ipod the sub does not play. It is hooked up correctly b/c it will play when the radio or a cd is playing. Is this an ipod setting or something wrong with cd player? How do i fix this problem? i have the same problem with my aftermarket subwoofer in my celica. the guy at best buy said something about the wire going from my amp being solid blue needing to be blue with a white stripe or something... i couldn't really follow tho... where would u buy a new wire for that?

    I had the same problem. What was wrong with mine was i had a thin blue wire coming out of my sub that needed to be connected to the wire harness. I had it connected to the solid blue wire in the wire harness (which seemed logical at the time) but it actually has to be connected to the blue w/ white stripe wire in the harness. Now my sub works great with both the ipod and radio.

Hook up the remote wire from the head unit (grey w/ orange stripe) to the power antenna wire (blue) on the wiring harness adapter.

    Its not the MP3 quality or the source tone feature or the eq.

    I take that back, the wire color on the harness is blue and like me, you probably hooked it up to the blue wire from the head unit whereas it should be connected to the blue and white wire (remote / power antenna).

Hi,is the subwoofer works with radio then it must be the quality of your mp3's that is poor, diffrent sources do not change the subwoofer output....
also it could be the source tone feature, the unit will remember diffrent bass&treble and sublevel settings for diffrent sources, maybe the bass is turned down, also check the EQ on the i-pod, that may be affecting to sound?

Subwoofer output: Hold the (AM-) button down for at least two seconds. You can do this function when "SWPRE" in is set to . The SWPRE (Switching Preout) Switches the preout between rear output ("R") and subwoofer output ("SW").

2002 JEEP [Wrangler] CD player will not play Nero burnt CD's


I had the same problem in my 1998 Jeep GC Limited. It has been a year and a half since I have played a burnt cd in my cd player. I researched everything possible and came to the conclusion that it was either the type of cd I was using (some cds with prints etc are hard for the laser inside the player to read) or the burning speed, and after many failed attempts, I still couldn't find a combination that would work. Then yesterday, my brother had a burnt cd he had made with his computer and we tried it just to see if it might work and it did! So, the brand of cd is Memorex, the type is CD-R, and they are 80min. worth of recording time. I purchased some of these cds at Hastings (although I'm sure they are avaliable wherever you purchase blank cds) and tried burning one in my laptop just to make sure it was going to work and it did! I burned the cd using windows media player and before I started the burn I went into 'burn options' and set the burning speed to the lowest possible. Hope this helps!

Troubleshooting in car cd player


that is very strange but it could be that when you put the cd in the radio it maybe sending out a quick shot of amplified power I would try disconecting the subs put in a cd let it play a little then plug the subs in while the cd is playing and see if they work if this works you may to get a new radio or put in a switch to turn the subs off or some type of momentary circuit breaker I'm just trying to help I never saw anything like that before good luck........

No sub when listening to a cd


you're using the wrong remote output wire. You have it hooked to the power ANTenna wire (blue) which turns off when not using the tuner. You need to use the REM OUT wire (blue w/ white stripe).

Subwoofer Output Not Working...


The first thing to try is disconnecting ONE of the two subs. See if you get more bass with a single sub than with both. If you do, re-connect the second subwoofer, but reverse the (+) and (-) wires.

Audio Output problems


Currently you have the blue wire from your Kenwood head unit connected to the blue wire in the Chrysler wire harness adapter. You need to disconnect this wire, and reconnect it to the blue/white wire coming from your Kenwood head unit instead. You probably already have the remote wire from your subwoofer amp connected there; both wires need to be attached to the blue/white Kenwood remote output. Your LHS is equipped with a factory amp. The blue wire in the Chrysler harness activates the amplifier, but it's connected to your Kenwood's power antenna activation output; therefore it's only being turned on when the tuner is selected.
