Question about Pioneer DEH-P3000 CD Player

3 Answers

I have a pioneer DEH-P3000

When I bought the car the man had a cable coming from the back of the unit and I would just plug in my I pod and play. I had to put the source on AUX. well I had to jump start my car yesterday and now when I switch to AUX it say M-CD. I don't know where AUX went to. I go and switch to CD and that works then go to Tuner and the radio FM works fine but the AUX won't show up. I don't know how he did it by hooking the Ipod cable to the back but it has been working awsome until yesterday

    We inherited this stereo (Pioneer DEH-P3000) with a used car and felt the need to hook up an aux cord to use with an iPod. We bought a Peripheral Connex2Car aux cable and could not figure out how to make the radio recognize it. (BTW, clock setting was a mystery as well.) Thanks to this post, the aux cable is installed, the clock is set and we are happily listening to our iPod/Pioneer! Thank you so much!



    I wish Pioneer would post their owner's manuals like so many other manufacturers do! You are certainly filling a void! Keep up the good work!

Hi nhmteam. I have the solution for you: 1. With your DEH-P3000 turned off, press your FUNCtion button. It's a tiny button towards the upper right of the faceplate. Hold it down until you "ALARM OFF" or "ALARM ON" on the display. Release the button. 2. Press the FUNCtion button again and you should see another feature. I don't remember how many features you need to cycle through, but keep releasing and pressing the FUNCtion button until you see "M-CD ON" on the display. If you miss it just keep going and eventually it will come back. 3. On the right side of your faceplate there is a button with 4 arrows. You will need to push the up or down arrow until the display reads "M-CD OFF". If your display already reads "M-CD OFF", kip to the next step. 4. Press and release the FUNCtion button again and you should see "AUX OFF" on the display. Again press the up or down arrow until the display reads "AUX ON". 5. Now, turn on your unit, then press the INPUT button until the display reads "AUX". You are now ready to use your iPod in the way you always did. Keep these instructions for the future since I believe every time you disconnect the unit from the battery the unit will reset itself and disable your iPod cord. Best regards - TomR

    I forgot one piece of information. When you start this setup process, even though your unit is turned off, you will need to turn your ignition on so that power is going to the unit.

You will need to reset the radio. The best way to do this is to remove the battery cable for about an hour and retry it. If that does not work, you have a problem in the microprocessor, but the resetting should work. Good Luck

I think an MP3 player can be attached. How is


Just buy a 3.5mm cable to go from your MP3 player to the "Aux In" jack on the front of the stereo. Plug that in and press "play" on your MP3 player and you're all set.

European Wiring harness not compatible with US bought Stereo


This is not as straightforward as you may think.

You can certainly buy a generic adapter harness which will plug into the European DIN harness and then provide you with the bare wire tails to patch into. You may even find one which plugs directly into the rear of your head unit without the need for patching.

But you'll find that your head unit still won't work properly as the US uses a different FM channel range to Europe (US frequencies are odd, e.g.102.7, Euro frequencies are even e.g.102.8). The channel spacing is also different.

The radio itself cannot be converted, but you may be able to buy an external converter. It won't be cheap, and the head unit display will still always show the wrong frequencies. Channel changing may have to be done directly on the adapter and not on the head unit as I don't think that the DEH-P3000 has any way to communicate a request for a channel change to any external device and this also means that radio channel presetting may be impractical/impossible.

Considering that the DEH-P3000 is an obsolete unit and nothing special to begin with you can buy a brand new Euro-spec head unit of equivalent quality for less than the cost of adapting your unit and it will work correctly without any awkward Heath Robinson adaptations.

Sell your Pioneer back to the USA where it belongs or bin it as it's useless over here.

Pioneer deh-p3000 when i turn the key off and back on the stereo's doesnt remember anything


did you wire the radio yourself? it sounds like you have the yellow wire connected to a switched power source. the yellow wire needs to go to a power source which is always hot, or constant, whether the key is on or not.

Ipod cable will not work with the DEH-P3000


Hi, On a slightly different model and only if you would venture to try: with the iPod via cable plugged to the iP-Bus port and the unit powered off but the powersupply on - 1. press and hold for a couple of seconds the Function button (FUNC) or till the clock starts to flash; 2. the arrow keys (left/right) will move you through the different menu settings; 3. the arrow keys (up/down) will move you through the different selection for each setting; 4. look for source, external, AUX, iPod or whatever will be displayed which may refer to an external input; 5. soon as you have enabled/set the AUX, press and hold the FUNC button while turning the unit on. This will save the current setup. Hope this also work for your DEH-P3000. Good luck and kind regards.

Ipod Connection through RCA Cable


Actually, what I think gbaity is doing is utilizing his IP(Interactive Pioneer)-Bus port in the back of the DEH-P3000, which is an input port designed to allow the deck to use an external multi-disk CD changer. All you need is the CD changer, then change the input source from your deck to "M-CD". There are folks on eBay and other places that sell a cable that pluggs into that very same port. They are designed to allow the unit to accept input through the IP-Bus from an ipod or just about any low-level input that you can pass through the RCA jacks. I have the same deck, and also just purchased an ipod cable for the IP-Bus, and it also does not work. I have been told that I need to switch the "M-CD" input source to "AUX" as the input, but I do not know how to do that. pressing the input source button only displays "CD", "M-CD", and "FM/AM". Does anyone know how to add "AUX" to the choices or otherwise show us how to make these cables work? Thanks - TomR
