SOURCE: Finding the AUX button

With the stereo on, hold your Source button to turn the stereo off.

The hold the function button, a menu will appear, press function repeatedly until you see the Aux setting, and you will have an option to enable it with the navigation keys.

Once done press your source button to turn the stereo back on, and then go through the varioud sources and ye shall now find Aux as an additional source ;o)

SOURCE: MP3, IPOD, CD doesn't appear when I press "Source"


If you read your owner's maunal, page 26, the USB is designed for a flash drive (up to 4GB), not an Ipod.
If you would like to play your iPOD, purchase the IPC008 (Ipod Lead) and you're done!

Depends what you want to connect to AUX if it is an iPod then you need an adapter! the unit is not Bluetooth capable but you can add Hands free Bluetooth kit:

How to connect your iPod to a Car Stereo

Many car stereos have more new connections that MP3 playerslike the iPod can be connected and played through the stereo. For new carradio, you only need to connect the device and the MP3 player. If you have anold stereo, connect your iPod or connect a 3.5 mm stereo cable or FMtransmitter. Connect iPod directly to the stereo with a stereo cable willresult in better sound quality on the FM transmitter, which can be interruptedor static signal.

1. Find an AUX port. The AUX is a hole, only small to belocated on your car radio face. (The size is perfect for connecting headphonesor an auxiliary cable.)

2. Connect the 3.5 mm stereo cable into the hole in front ofyour car.

3. Connect the other end into the hole stereo AUX jack /headphone jack on top of your iPod.

4. Connect your iPod.

5. Activate the AUX input. This will be different for eachcar. You may need to field through your input options (e.g., FM, AM, CD, etc.)to access the AUX. Or you may need for your stereo pressing the Menu button.Then, the options for auxiliary input field to the AUX input as possible.

6. Find a song on your iPod and press the Play button whenthe auxiliary input is activated. If you do not hear anything, make sure thevolume on the iPod device and radio. If the iPod is playing your song, you'llsee the song progresses on the iPod screen.

FM Transmitter
1. Find an FM transmitter that is compatible with the iPod.So let your FM transmitter near your car radio.

2. Connect the iPod to the FM transmitter.

3. Tune the radio to your car radio has a frequency thatonly static, then the vote of the same frequency channel using the buttons +and -.

4. Connect your iPod. Then a number and press"Play." Make sure to turn all your volume on your iPod. You should beable to use his music. If not, find a new frequency until you find one thatworks with the iPod and the transmitter.

How do I hook up my ipod to my pioneer vsx d409 ?

The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:
You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:
After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Cant find aux conection for ipod function pioneer car stereo deh-p6800mp just need help trying to get ipod playing

there is no direct input on this until. although you can purchase the aux input cable from the link i have posted which will allow you to plug in rca's into the rear. after purchasing2.gif this cable, you will have to turn on the aux option in the menu. which you may want to make sure that you can do beffore you order it.

1.with the power on, hold the source button until the until turns off
2. hold the audio button until a menu is opened. (hold function if audio doesn't work)
3. scroll through until you find the aux option and turn it on.
4. turn on the radio2.gif and scroll through the sources and make sure it is there.
5. buy cable and headphone to rca cable2.gif
or you can order the direct ipod adapter made by pioneer, which will let you control the ipod directly from the head unit itself. whichever you prefer

There is a auxiliary button on the sony cdx-m8800. Is there a way to hook up an IPOD? The stereo also has MP3 written on the inside face. Thanks

Contrary to the below Expert's testimony, the UK CDX-M880 has a REAR AUX connector that will enable you to play your iPod through your car's stereo.

You will not be able to control the ipod's interface through the radio. You will have to use the control on the iPod .

You require a Male 3.5mm extension cable like the following...

I have a CDE-9872 and it wont pick up my ipod touch

Add Alpine's optional "Full Speed" connection cable and you'll be able to use the CDE-9872 to control your iPod. -Crutchfields website

This is compatible with first and second generation iPods touch.
fyi- if you have a mini-stereo aux in jack on the deck you can connect a ipod touch compatible mini stereo cable to the earphone jack of your ipod.

Hook up IPOD

I am not sure if the model you have supports iPod control, but if it has an input jack in the front, you can use a cable from the headphone jack into the Aux jack in the front of the stereo and when there is a cable inserted into the jack you will be able to select Aux with the source button.
The other option is to get a kit installed at your car stereo place that will allow you to connect it via 3rd party hardware.

Auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control

Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).

MD/CD Changer Control Options

press source button repeatedly to select "CD" or "MD" be aware that in order to connecting Ipod to a car stereo you will need to use an extension cable with 3.5 mm stereo connectors on each end to connect iPod to your car stereo system's aux input, or use a cassette adapter if your car stereo doesn't have a sound input jack. Either of these items can be purchased at stores that sell car stereo accessories. good luck!
