How do I re-enable "AUX" option, which is off by default?
My car battery just died and now I can no longer use my iPod via the "AUX" option. Last time this happened I ended up bringing it into a shop and they told me that "AUX' needs to be re-enabled because it's not available out-of-the-box. Anyone know how to do this?

there is a reset switch which needs to be pressed once mains are disconnected (as your car died down).do press it once.
The AUX control to which the ipod is connected is to be switched ON .It is not automatically ON.
once you put the AUX "on" you can hear your ipod.
I am not sure if the model you have supports iPod control, but if it has an input jack in the front, you can use a cable from the headphone jack into the Aux jack in the front of the stereo and when there is a cable inserted into the jack you will be able to select Aux with the source button. The other option is to get a kit installed at your car stereo place that will allow you to connect it via 3rd party hardware.
On a slightly different model and only if you would venture to try:
with the iPod via cable plugged to the iP-Bus port and the unit powered off but the powersupply on -
1. press and hold for a couple of seconds the Function button (FUNC) or till the clock starts to flash;
2. the arrow keys (left/right) will move you through the different menu settings;
3. the arrow keys (up/down) will move you through the different selection for each setting;
4. look for source, external, AUX, iPod or whatever will be displayed which may refer to an external input;
5. soon as you have enabled/set the AUX, press and hold the FUNC button while turning the unit on. This will save the current setup.
Hope this also work for your DEH-P3000.
Good luck and kind regards.
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.
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.
