Attach IPod to my car stereo

Hi, my problem is my radio has a 'bus' cable outlet/inlet with seperate audio input, the input for audio is phono plugs (red/white) i'm trying to put audio in from an i,pod which i can do but i have to plug the cd 'bus' cable in with cd changer also plugged in at the other end of the cable, is there any way to trick the radio into thinking it has the cd changer attached ? Without actually attaching it.

According to the manual at sony's web site, the sony cdx gt520 deck does indeed use RCA style hook up cables.

SOURCE: I have a male ipod

If your Sony has female RCA Aux inputs, then you can use that going headphone out of MP3 player to the RCA inputs. You won't be able to view or controll any other player from the head unit except an iPod.

SOURCE: how do you work the Aux input?

when something is plugged into the jack (mp3 player ect) there should work when you cycle through the options of the deck such as cd, radio, There should be an aux option when it is plugged in.

How to use aux in facility in honda city zx vtec


It is an auxiliary input used to connect mp3 players, or anything that can connect with that type of cable, so you can play them through your car radio. All you do is determine the type of cord you need, (usually 1/8" phono plug), and connect it from your device to the radio. Then you tune the radio to the AUX input.

does the radio support ipods or does it support memory sticks
i would check but i can not find a manual for your radio
im guessing that the radio does not support ipods it supports songs on memory sticks.

and put the songs on the device using my computer and then try and play some songs

Preplace the charger by another device


Yes it is possible with any cd changer that have RCA jacks behind the radio,
that is your case, you are goin gto install a audio sensing device, when the ipod is on the cd changer will stop,
when the ipod is off the cd changer will play 10 seconds later
this interface is only rca jacks easy to plug behind the radio and you can use any audio source, ipod mp3 sat radio
you can also buy a ipod cable

audio sensing device, it is made for sony, but will work with any rca jacks source, also cd changer must be present all the time, don't remove it

How do you hook up your ipod through the rca cable hookups in the back without the radio still playing?


This is different on every stereo, but generally the RCA ports in the back of the stereo are labeled "Aux" or something to that extent.

First, you must purchase a headphone jack to RCA cable which can connect to both your stereo and your ipod.

Connect the cable, turn your ipod on and start playing a song. Turn the volume on the stereo to a moderate volume so you can hear when the song is being played through your stereo. Then, using the selector switch, turn the stereo from "Radio" to "Aux" or whatever it says next to the the RCA plug ins on the back.

It will fit fine. You need to buy a dash kit. http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120997505/Mazda-In-dash-Receiver-Kit.html?tp=861

If you don't want to order it online you can go to best buy and buy one.

CDX changer has power but doesn't want to eject after flat battery


i resolved this myself in the end.
I unplugged the audio & power cables whilst the stereo and engine was running.
Then plugged back in.
I turned the engine off and stereo off as well.
I then unplugged audio and power again from the back of the CDX, left it unplugged for 10 minutes whilst the engine was still off.
I then plugged the leads back in and turned the engine on. the stereo recognised the CDX, but stayed on displaying "CD Checking". I switched to radio for 20 seconds, turned back to CDX and it selected CD 1 and has been good ever since.

I'm rather pleased with myself!

Volume is uncontrolable


Hi sounds like you have the audio out from the cd changer connected to the RCA/Phono out of the radio. double check that the output from the CD changer is going into the correct phono/rca connector regards Mark www.carradiospares.co.uk
