    If your car stereo is a JVC, then this should work just fine for you. It would be best to contact JVC and look up the radio. Once you do, look at the available accessories. If this is on the list, it will do. You are not going to get the On Screen Display, though. You would have to find a kit that charge and connect the Ipod, and I'm not sure JVC makes this. You will get sound though.

SOURCE: diagram for adaptor ks-u57

There's nothing to it--look 'inside' the connector and you'll see three metal contacts close the metal connector (somewhat similar design as a USB jack). The center is common for the line out, and the left/right are the positive for the left and right channels. The metal connector itself is not part of the circuit.
So if you were connecting RCA jacks to it, the outer ('negative') of both RCAs connects to the center contact on the KS-U57, and the center ('positive,' or 'signal') of the left and right RCAs go to the contacts bracketing the center.
KS-U58 and KS-U57 are wired the same.

SOURCE: jvc model kd-g502 in my car it has an ext adaptor

Hi there,
1. Press and hold SEL till the preferred setting mode (PSM) comes up. 2. Scroll through the modes till you see EXT IN (You may need to set CD as the Source to see this.) 3. Adjust the value by moving the knob around the SEL button. 4. You should now see LINE IN.
Good Luck
And let me know how you went?

My problem is when I connect my iPod to my head


That usb port is not meant for an ipod it was intended for a usb flash drive with mp3s on it. if you want to use your ipod you will need to get a interface mod, i believe the model number is jvc KS-PD100.. it should have it listed in your manual or you can call up jvc to confirm.

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..

KS-U58 JVC Input Adapter Cable


Just installed a 'generic' KS-U57 (same as the KS-U58, but terminates in a RCA, $7 on ebay) that has the same black box--except I cracked the black box open and found that it is empty (only contains soldered connections). I imagine that the authentic JVC is the same.
I have a noise problem (engine static), but it is because my mp3 player is charged by the cigarette lighter--unplugging it eliminates the noise, so as far as I can tell, there is no need for a noise filter inside the KS-U57.
