Ok, first off, NEVER CUT WIRES!!!! what you need to do is go to your local audio store ie. best buy etc. buy a wire harness. It makes everything so simple, just match colors. If your wires are already cut, then you need a haynes manual about $15.

Cable Connect iPod iPhone MP3 Phone Audio to Mazda Car Player


Does your car player have a auxillary jack (looks like headphone hole)

or does it just have a tape player?

if it has an auxilary plug then you need to plug the cable from your ipod into that and set the stereo to aux for source.

if the car has a tape player go to the store and ask for the cassette that plugs into your headphone jack. then you can put that tape into the tapeplayer and plug the other end in your headphone port on the ipod and listen away

There is a aux in the back of my stereo will it work for my ipod? i cant get the front mini aux to work?


For this to work you will need an aux cable with RCAs and an iPod cable with receiving RCAs, or an aux cable with an iPod cable on the other end( haven't seen that one...yet). Mount it near the center console because there will be no controlling the iPod from the radio, only sound.

HELP! ipod wont work.


Hi guys, just figured out how to hook up your Ipod to the above mentioned stereo, Here is how...

- Put your stereo in STBY mode, then push the menu button, scroll up or down and you get different options to change clock and AUX settings, my AUX was OFF and I had to select ON. Now you can push your Sorce button (the one that puts the stereo in STBY) and you will have the AUX option this will allow you to play your MP3 players and Ipods. ENJOY!

I spent a few hours looking for this very explination so I hope this saves the rest of you some time. Safe driving.
