Aux in runs only back speakers and no volume control
I plugged my i-pod into the RCA inputs in the back of my DEH-P3000. I switch to Aux input. The sound only comes from the cars back speakers and not the front ones. The volume remains constant no matter how high or low I turn the volume on the receiver. I tried using the fader and balance to bring the sound back to the front but these buttons don't do anything with the aux in either. The CD and radio features work just fine. Any idea what setting I am missing or what I might be doing wrong? I would also like to know how to fix this. I have a pioneer cd player with the RCA adapter using the Aux cable and I cannot get my sound to come in and be adjusted through all speakers including the volume.
Re: Aux in runs only back speakers and no volume control
To use the AUX, you need to buy a special cable that plugs into the little blue connector on the back of the unit. The cable has a special multi-pin connector on one end and RCA's on the other. Search Pioneer CD-RB10 to find one. Ebay has knockoffs cheap. I just got one and it works great.

Try going to the owners manual and check the menu settings for the Pioneer to make sure the aux function is switched on if changing the cable does not resolve the issue.
This happened to me.
Factory default for the aux in is usually off.

You need to run RCA cables from the CD player to the CD or AUX input on your amp / receiver unit. If you have a standalone amp, you need some way to control the volume. Basically, if you have a volume control on the front of your amp, you're OK. If not, you should also have a preamplifier that the CD player feeds first.
From the amplifier, then, a single pair of speaker outputs feeds a single pair of inputs on your speakers. The reason for two jack sets on the speakers is for "bi-wiring" or "bi-amping", not necessary for basic stereo reproduction.
CD red/white RCA out -> preamp/receiver red/white CD/AUX input. Amp speaker output (red + / black -) to one red/black input pair on the speakers. An input on the speaker is side by side...
Keep the red to red, black to black when connecting the speakers, or you will wind up with poor sound and weak bass.
Clock adjustment is performed in the "Initial Settings" menu.
Please follow the instructions below to access time setting.

The RCA jacks on the back of the Pioneer DEH-1500 are preamp outputs, not inputs. They are to connect an external amplifier for additional speakers or subwoofers.
The output from your iPod is probably "bleeding over" into the receiver detector stage. When the antenna is disconnected, the signal passes into the amp by itself. Connecting the antenna provides enough signal so that both are amplified.
To connect the iPod, you need to purchase a wireless iPod adapter, or a new head unit that includes an "AUX" input or a dedicated adapter for the iPod.
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.
Turn unit off by holding the Source (volume knob) button until power is off.
Now, hold down the Function button (FUNC) until the unit turns on. You will now be in the Initial Settings menu, a special menu. Press the Function button (FUNC) again until you see the word AUX, press up to enable it, then press the Source (volume knob) button until you see AUX. It works now, congratulations.
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.

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
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).
Turn the ignition key to on or accessory position, turn the stereo off, then hold the function key for a couple seconds, the stereo will turn on and you scroll through the menu with the left and right arrow buttons and change settings with the up and down buttons
