How do I use the auxiliary input option on my Pioneer DEH-P59000IB? It has no auxiliary input to plug in a wire.

After looking up your unit's info, I found that it does indeed have an aux input, but it's on the rear of the unit. Get yourself a 3.5mm aux cable (normal aux cable), pull the unit from the dash (being careful not to disconnect any wires), plug one end into the aux jack and feed the other end thru the area where the unit sits in the dash and out one side or the other of the center area of the dash (by the footwells). Put the head unit back in place and GENTLY pull the aux cable enough to get out the last bit of slack, but not so hard that you pull it out of the back of the head unit. You can tuck the extra slack up under the console where it meets the carpet. If you wanted to get real fancy, you could drill a slot in the storage area of the console large enough for the cable to fit but small enough that the end won't slip through so you can keep it all out of sight and just plug your phone or MP3 player in and hide it in the console. Then just switch the source on the unit to aux and enjoy!

How can I hook up an auxiliary wire to play my IPhone on the JVC KD-AR5000

After looking up your unit's info, I found that the aux input is on the rear of the unit. Pull the unit from the dash, being careful not to disconnect any wires (sometimes the antenna adapter wire is too short and must be disconnected to work behind the unit. Just don't forget to reconnect it before putting the unit back in place). Plug one end of a 3.5mm aux cable into the aux input on the rear of the unit and feed the other end thru the hole where the unit sits in the dash and out the side of the center of the dash to either the driver or passenger footwell. Replace the head unit and GENTLY pull the rest of the slack out of the aux cable but not so hard that you disconnect it from the head unit. You can tuck any excess aux cable up under the side of the console where the plastic meets the carpet, & if you wanted to get really fancy, you could drill a slot in the storage area of the console big enough to fit the cable, but small enough so the end doesn't fall through so you could plug your phone in and hide it all in the console out of sight. Then just switch the source on the unit to aux and enjoy!

Does the Kenwood KDC MP5032 have an aux input? If so, where is it?

Hi there,

Kenwood utilize the CD Changer plug in the back (which acts as a secondary Aux input), to operate external iPod devices.

This is done with the aid of an Adapter Lead - it has the 13-pin DIN plug on one end (plugs into the rear of your unit), and an iPod plug on the other end (plugs into your iPod).

Depending on the "Generation" of your external iPod device, you will need to buy the appropriate Kenwood adapter cable. These are: KCA-IP102, KCA-IP202 or KCA-IP302.

There may be some aftermarket (3rd party) cables that may do the same job.

Just ensure you read your Kenwood manual, as the Kenwood unit may be limited to the types of files (i.e. formats) it can read & play.

Hope this explains....

How do i connect an aux cord to my head unit

You can go to radio shack and grab a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. make sure that is male -to - male. Some decks are equipped with an AUX IN in the front and some in the back and then some have both. This wire will resemble the same input end of an earphone plug. Once you have your device plugged in then just press the SRC button on your deck till it says AUX, AUX IN, or Audio. Let me know if this helps

Hooking sat to car stereo

that plug at the back is not for sat radio. It is for use with steering wheel controls. You have the blue plug at rear of stereo and that is the plug for sat radio. Ericson electronics is contracted to build the sat compatible units that wire into this radio through the blue. plug. if you are using 3.5 plug audio control from a portable sat receiver, the you will need to buy an aux input cable for your stereo..

Jensen cd 2610 aux input has little volume

first of all the rca jacks in the back of your radio are for plugging in an amp, not your mp3 player. there should be an auxiliary jack(looks like a headphones jack) in the front of the head unit. if there is no auxiliary jack in the front then you will have to go buy a new head unit with an auxiliary jack.

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).
