According to the manual, you need to "enable" the AUX 1 or 2 thru the initial settings menu.

Press and hold the SRC until the unit turns off. Then press and hold the MULTI CONTROL (knob) until the Language appears. Turn the knob to cycle thru the options, select AUX 1 or 2 and press the knob again to select ON.

After selecting them to on, power the unit on and press the SRC to cycle thru the sources to find AUX 1 or 2.

The owners manual is here if you need it;,,2076_310070337_338818745,00.html

Best of Luck.

I have the venturer stero system for my bedroom and I have an iPod adapter cord and the stero has an AUX option but I have no idea where the plug in for the cord is at and I have no ideas what to put it...

Common inputs are coaxial type (red/white). Try Coaxial to headphone jack cable, connect phone jack to your digital player and the coaxial to stereo. And set your Stereo System to AUX mode or video mode.

Hope that give you an idea...

How do i connect my iPod to a Pioneer Car Stereo

<p>It is advisable to listen to your iPod through headphones while driving in the car. Not only is it dangerous to completely cancel the sounds of the road as it is often illegal in many cities across the country. There is an alternative, however. In just a few steps you can use your iPod to your car stereo speakers and use the car to listen to your music, podcasts and audiobooks. No brand car stereo makes it easier to connect these beautiful than Pioneer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect one end of the mini-jack on your iPod headphone jack. Once done, set your iPod or on your dashboard or your car seat so that it will not tip over while driving. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Find your sound system's auxiliary input Pioneer. It is often located in front of the front panel stereo, but can also open the front or back of the unit completely. If the extra connector on the back of the stereo itself, then you remove the panel. When it comes to this, see the instructions that came with your sound system is provided for further guidance. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the other end of the cable mini-jack for stereo aux port. This will allow your iPod to the audio signal through the cable to the stereo and the stereo signal will pass to the car speakers. Most often, when something is plugged into the stereo aux jack will work in stereo. In some models a setting to select the additional connection. Whatever the case, now you can sit and enjoy your iPod for that long car ride. <br />

I dont understand how to play mp3 player on my kenwood cd player.I have the cord to hook it up to my kenwood radio but i dont know how to get the mp3 to play.

Just plug the cord into the front of the cd player where it says "AUX" and then plug the other end of the cord into the headphone / line out jack on any ipod or mp3 player then select "AUX" instead of CD and the sound will come through the system

How do I hook up my ipod to my pioneer vsx d409 ?

The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:
You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:
After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

I have a Pioneer DEH-P5200 and i plugged the aux chords in the back to my ipod but dont know how to switch to the aux mode on radio...

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.

How do you connect an Ipod throught the aux input?

what type of input does your radio have? if its a head phone jack input just get a headphone to headphone jack wire from radioshack and plug one end into you ipod and the other into the radio, set your radio to aux and your ipods volume to 70-80%. if its an rca input, it exactly the same but you will need an rca to headphone jack wire. if its usb, just use the cable that came with you ipod.

Does a pioneer deh-p550mp have an AUX. jack on the back or a set of AUX. RCA's to connect a device?

there is no direct input on this until. although you can purchase the aux input cable from the link i have posted which will allow you to plug in rca's into the rear. after purchasing this cable, you will have to turn on the aux option in the menu. which you may want to make sure that you can do beffore you order it.

1.with the power on, hold the source button until the until turns off
2. hold the audio button until a menu is opened. (hold function if audio doesn't work)
3. scroll through until you find the aux option and turn it on.
4. turn on the radio and scroll through the sources and make sure it is there.
5. buy cable and headphone to rca cable

How to hookup kindle to car audio system

This could be either very easy or a huge headache.

Easy way - The newer cars have an audio input jack, basically a headphone jack (1/8"). There are cables that you can use with 2 male connectors; one on each end. Set your car radio on AUX/LINE IN/MP3 and turn it up.

Hard way - Go to Radioshack or Best Buy, even Target or Wallmart, and buy an FM Transmitter. They shouldn't run over $20. You plug it into you cigarette outlet for power and/or takes 2 AA batteries. Plug the headphone jack into your Kindle and set the radio station on the transmitter to either a very low or very high radio station; somewhere where there is no station close by. Turn the car FM radio to the station you set it on and turn it up.

How do you hook up your ipod through the rca cable hookups in the back without the radio still playing?

This is different on every stereo, but generally the RCA ports in the back of the stereo are labeled "Aux" or something to that extent.

First, you must purchase a headphone jack to RCA cable which can connect to both your stereo and your ipod.

Connect the cable, turn your ipod on and start playing a song. Turn the volume on the stereo to a moderate volume so you can hear when the song is being played through your stereo. Then, using the selector switch, turn the stereo from "Radio" to "Aux" or whatever it says next to the the RCA plug ins on the back.

Hi, I am trying to get the aux input to work and am wondering which set of rca outputs to use, front, rear, or constant level? I have not been able to find out which one to use from my manual. I have...

There is either a headphone size jack on the back labeled aux or a blue square plug. If it is the headphone jack then you need a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable. But if I remember right you have the blue plug and need to buy the auxillary adapter. Then you need a 3.5mm to rca cable. The outputs are only outputs not inputs. Turning the Aux on in the menu does bring it under Source now.
