Re: pioneer head unit
You have to have a "Car Kit" installed for your cellular phone, either Bluetooth or not. It would have a wire that would be connected to your Head Unit to enable the Telephone Mute or Att, as you choose.
If you dont have a car kit, it is of no use to you.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

OK - had the same problem and got it finally figured out. Power the unit on the ignition key. Press and hold the source button so the unit shuts off. With the unit shut off press and hold the function button (the key is to hold the function button down) The clock, aux etc will show on the screen. Press (but do not hold) the function button and it will move to each function. When you get to the AUX press the ^ button and the will switch the AUX to "on". Once you know, like everything else, it's pretty easy.
hey mate try turning the head unit off then there should be a fnc (function) button while the unit is off hold this button in for 5sec should bring up a menu with date/time and other functions after the menu is up just press the function button normally to scroll thru the menu
Look for the function button. Once found (on unit or remote), turn off the power. press and hold the function button until the units sub menu pops up. use this screen to set time and other options. one of the options is to turn of demo mode. At least that used to be how pioneer did it.
to fix this press and hold the source button till unit turns off the source button switches from CD - radio...................once your unit powers off........press and hold the function button down till the clock appears in display you should also hear a beep when this happens.........press the function button repeatedly until the telephone feature appears now switch by pressing the skip button to ATT (Attention) once this is done press the source button to power on the pioneer unit simply turn up the volume and problem should be solved......
hope i was able to help
hold down the source button to turn off the unit (unit must be off)
now hold down the function button till it beeps once it has done this press the function button i think 3 or 4 times and you will get a message on your deck unit saying (aux - on,off) turn on and press the source button to turn the unit back on to the CD or radio now press source button2 or 3 times till Aux shows up (press means push it let it go) (hold means don't take your finger off button)
hope this solves your problem
turn off your player by pressing and holding volume controler. press and hold longer (~5 sec) it again to turn it on (you should see 'tuner' in the lcd). push up arrow to select aux and right/left to turn it on.
now you can connect your ipod and select aux (as ussual switching between tuner/cd player/aux)
The adapter cable will convert the changer port on your head unit into an AUX input with dual RCA jacks. Once connected, the head unit will detect the cable and allow it to be another source (i.e. radio, cd, aux).
To connect your iPod to the adapter cable, use any iPod cable or dock that outputs to male RCA plugs.
To set the clock on a Pioneer head unit:
Hold the 'Source' button until the unit powers off.
Hold the 'Function' button until an item appears on the screen and starts flashing. This is the 'Initial Settings' menu, where you can set the clock and more depending on the head unit model.
Press and release the 'Function' button to switch between options in this menu and use the left/right/up/down arrows to adjust settings for any option.
As far as iPod connections - they will work with a regular iPod and an iPod Nano. You have two options depending on how much you want to spend and how much convenience you want.
Option 1 - Use a Pioneer CD-IB100 adapter. This will plug into the docking port on the bottom of the IPod, charge it, offer control and song information on the head unit. You need to use this one and not the newer CD-I200 cable because your head unit is not compatible with the newer piece.
Option 2 - Use a Pioneer CD-RB10 adapter and a 3.5mm to RCA cable that will plug into the headphone jack of the iPod. You will only get audio input to the head unit but this option is somewhat cheaper.
As far as the clock settings - hold the 'source' button to shut the unit off(key still has to be on). Push the 'function' button until options appear - you can switch between options by repeatedly pushing the 'function' button and adjust settings by using the up/down/left/right arrows.
