    i found you have to get an adapter to hook in where a cd changer would go.


  • uthe Nov 07, 2007

    I am having the same problem here. I have the adapter and it is hooked into the Aux port in the back and I can't seem to change the source to it. I tried what tommop said and when I am cycling through it all there is no Aux option. There are some other options that I don't know what they are but nothing with Aux. Anything else I can try to get it to work?

    Maybe the cd player needs to detect a disk changer to enable the aux.

    I have the some problem :/

    do not see the aux in stereo only appears all off, tuner and CD that I do?

    Did anyone figure out which accessory works? This site
    says the cd changer/rca adapter can't be used on the kenwood with sirius tuner and that's what the mp522 is. It says you need "KCA-S220A two changer switch with a stereo RCA auxiliary input" and that's $80, plus it's pretty big. I also find no AUX item in the MENU.

Try putting the unit in standby via the "SRC" button FIRST..., then press the menu button and cycle through to the "AUX 1" option and activate this....then press menu button again. When the unit is next switched on, you should have an "AUX" option accessible via the "SRC" button which will cycle through all of the availale modes ....standby-tuner-cd-aux etc etc.

How do I get the MP3 player to work in a 2007 Nissan Quest?

you said CAN , i bet you meant CAN'T or CAN NOT. right?
the AUX port is just a line input, analog audio input,
it dont know MP3 .
it only amplies the analog audio found there.
you connect any device, to AUX. push play on the device.
then put car radio in to AUX input mode and play. the audio.
that is all there is to it.
the external device does all the heavy lifting, reading a file, and decoding it (mp3 decode) and then sends raw analog audio out.

the cable is sold and radioshack, or walfart or many other stores,
Target, most MP3 players, come with this cable,
they use mini phone plugs, stereo, type,. (3 contacts)

When I connect my Sansa mp3 player to the single CD audio system (using the Hyundai usb connector), with the cd\aux on and cd selected, it switches to aux and the screen reads "CONNECTED" but I get no...

This sounds like you do not have full usb functionality and it is diverting to the aux input. when aux is used you have to control the play and sound etc from the actual mp3 player and not the audio controls

Cannot get my mp3 player to operate on the aux input consistently

I have a 2002 Pontiac Montana and I use a 2 pronged RCA plug at one end with a yellow plug and a white plug, and the other end is one plug to use for the MP3 player. Plug your RCA plugs into the bottom 2 plugs. My RCA plugs on my cord are yellow and black the yellow one is in the middle
plug and the black in the bottom one and I use the AUX input for my MP3 player. I have a SANSA
and a Ipod and they both work fine. I hope this helps. Just a FYI so you don't think your radio is
going whacko after you do get the MP3 player to work the AUX will always come on first and you will have to push the AM/FM button on the dash or the steering wheel to get the radio or DVD back on.
And the DVD player will have to be switched on for the AUX to play the MP3 player.
Have fun...

Connecting dvd player to zenith sy2551s system and doesn't work

Yes, You need to be on AUX ,you can get to that setting by pressing channel 01 then press the channels down button instead of going to channel zero it will start to cycle through your AUX's inputs on the back of the tv.Also, another way to do this is on the original remote there will be a SOURCE button or INPUT button that can also cycle your TV through the aux inputs.REMEMBER.Make sure your DVD player is turned on and hooked up or else the AUX screen will be black.Rate me when you fix it!GOOD LUCK
