Question about Kenwood eXcelon KDC-X579 CD Player
I want to connect my ipod through the optional auxiliar input but i don´t know how to enable the AUX in my radio. Thanks!
SOURCE: Can't get into AUX source
Are you sure it is an AUX input? According to the Manufacturers Specs, the AUX, is an optional accessory. There is a Pre-Amp connection, which would be an output, hence causing the problem you are having. Best of Luck.

SOURCE: switching on the auxiliary input
According to the manual, the AUX input is an optional accessory.
Check to see if the RCA jacks are labeled. I believe they are pre-outs only.
Best of Luck.

SOURCE: AUX input won't work
The red and white RCA terminals on the back of the unit are generally outputs for amplifiers. To use AUX the unit will need to have a 3.5mm jack in the front or rear. If not than the unit does not have AUX input capabilities.

when your car is on, turn the stereo off. you should be able to access a menu somehow when the stereo is off. in that menu, you should have the option to toggle the aux source on or off. simply switch it to on, then turn the sterreo back on, and hit the source button. it should now be ready to go.

Testimonial: "Thanks I will give that a try"
A decent info page for this radio and options is at Crutchfiled. They seems to provide good / very good information on all the products they sell. Service and pricing is up to you. To use Aux inputs, you need to purchase and connect the optional Aux Input Adapter (picture below).
Crutchfield sells these for about $20, and they plug into the jack on the rear of the radio. The jacks on the cables attached to the radio are preamp outputs - not inputs; and will not work as an input.
Here's a link to the manual (free download). Good luck!
