    The unit has a white and red aux input. It is described as for adding a tape player to the system. You would think that it would work.

1. you may not be able to go through the auxillary to get sound from this unit main because, from the inference here is that it is mono input.
But not being able to see the unit I am not privy to the full scope of the functionality of it.
Retro fitting new device with old usually means that modifiction is needed to make the new device couple or patch to the old device.
This may mean that the unit (old) will need to be disassembled and the main board scanned for a component to be insert or wired to accomodate the new device for audio to be heard trough it,.
There is a site called "instructables" that will assist in retro fitting new audio device to new but to give step by step here in this forum would not be accomodating to you because of limitations that is the unit being physically look at to assess the proper way to complete this project.
I hope this helps.

How to connect your iPod to a Car Stereo


Many car stereos have more new connections that MP3 playerslike the iPod can be connected and played through the stereo. For new carradio, you only need to connect the device and the MP3 player. If you have anold stereo, connect your iPod or connect a 3.5 mm stereo cable or FMtransmitter. Connect iPod directly to the stereo with a stereo cable willresult in better sound quality on the FM transmitter, which can be interruptedor static signal.

AUX
1. Find an AUX port. The AUX is a hole, only small to belocated on your car radio face. (The size is perfect for connecting headphonesor an auxiliary cable.)

2. Connect the 3.5 mm stereo cable into the hole in front ofyour car.

3. Connect the other end into the hole stereo AUX jack /headphone jack on top of your iPod.

4. Connect your iPod.

5. Activate the AUX input. This will be different for eachcar. You may need to field through your input options (e.g., FM, AM, CD, etc.)to access the AUX. Or you may need for your stereo pressing the Menu button.Then, the options for auxiliary input field to the AUX input as possible.

6. Find a song on your iPod and press the Play button whenthe auxiliary input is activated. If you do not hear anything, make sure thevolume on the iPod device and radio. If the iPod is playing your song, you'llsee the song progresses on the iPod screen.

FM Transmitter
1. Find an FM transmitter that is compatible with the iPod.So let your FM transmitter near your car radio.

2. Connect the iPod to the FM transmitter.

3. Tune the radio to your car radio has a frequency thatonly static, then the vote of the same frequency channel using the buttons +and -.

4. Connect your iPod. Then a number and press"Play." Make sure to turn all your volume on your iPod. You should beable to use his music. If not, find a new frequency until you find one thatworks with the iPod and the transmitter.

My E350 station wagon came with a cable for my ipod but when I plus the ipod into the cable in my glove compartment, the audio plays from my ipod but not through my speakers


There are various types of Ipod cables for cars. Most of them use FM transmitting mechanism whereby you pick an FM station and the music will be transmitted to said station or the type which act as an external auxiliary. With the external auxiliary you have to change the car radio mode to aux. As long as the cable is properly connected and not in bad shape then if you change to auxiliary mode it should play on your car speakers. Try this option and get back to me.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I have a Panasonic SA-PM31 stereo system with two auxiliary input methods: the first appears to be a common auxiliary cable input which says "phones." The second is a two cable input system...


The corect input for your ipod is another one who's name is "auxiliary" The "phones" input is dedicate only for pick-up, or another device who had to output a very small level signal. Your ipod have a high power level on output because he is amplified for a good level sound on your earphones. So, you can serious damage your Panasonic SA-PM31 sound system when input a too high level signal on "phones input" Phones is for unamplified audio signals like pickup signal direct from the head wires, or casette deck signal direct from the head wires. Gross (unprocessed) signal.

Only 3 speakers play with ipod all other is ok


Are you playing your ipod through the stereo with a cable in aux mode? If so check your fader and balance settings when in aux.
there would be no other reason except for speaker wiring check and make sure there is no auxiliary wiring that may not be hooked up.
if it's not settings, then it's wiring, unless your stereo has an internal problem in the auxiliary circuit.

Having problems hooking up an ipod.


The "bus audio input" works as an auxiliary input on some Sony decks, but not all. For the others, you need an auxiliary input adapter like this one: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Yln489DwSWp/cgi-bin/prodview.asp?i=127AUXONS You can also use a Sony iPod adapter that will charge the iPod and let you control it through the head unit controls: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Yln489DwSWp/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=305250&I=158XA110IP&search=sony+iPod

Linking an i pod to a Sony CDX-MP40 using the bus input terminal


Some Sony head units let you use the Bus audio inputs as an auxiliary source input, but yours is not among them. To play your iPod through the head unit, you'll either need an iPod interface module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-110IP or an auxiliary input module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-300 The iPod interface will allow you to control and display the iPod directly through the head unit, while an auxiliary input adapter will allow the iPod to play through the head unit using the iPod's controls and display.
