You should be able to do that as long as you have the right cable.

Most of the mp3 players have a "mini-stereo" jack (3.5mm) and some car stereos have the same type of jack for "aux" input, and others car stereos have RCA jacks for the "aux" input.

Even if the jacks are not the same type, you can use an adapter cable that converts the mini-stereo jack to an RCA jack. You can find them at many places like Best Buy, Circuit City or Radio Shack.

Depending on the type of car stereo you have, you would normally press the source button to change between the tuner, cd player, aux or whatever you may have connected to the stereo. You may even have a seperate button to press for the "aux" input.

I hope this was helpful to you, if you need more information just ask, and please give more info on the type of mp3 player and the make and model number of the car stereo.

Just want to know how to get my mp3 phone to play music through the stereo


Depending on the phone there is a cable available for this, some phones also have a FM transmitter device (sold separately) that you tune your radio into it and can play songs from the phone. Most Nokia phones simply need a 2.5 or 3.5mm headphone jack to 2xRCA Cable, this will plug into the Auxiliary inputs at the back of most stereo systems.

Please tell me how i can conect some mp3 player on my Fiat stilo 1.9 jtd 100, 2004 car audio system Visteon? Some electric diagram please...


If there isn't an input socket on the radio then the easiest way is to get an FM transmitter that you can plug into your MP3 player's headphone connection. Then you just tune your car radio to the station that it is transmitting. These are available cheaply for MP3 players that use ordinary headphone plugs, but it may cost more if you need one with a special connector for iPod or whatever.

Where can i find the aux input to connect my car to an mp3 player. i see an aux button but cant find any plug-ins. help please


if its a factory radio you might nit have an aux jack. alot of facory radios are decieving they have a button but no jack. the jacks are usually in the glove box, the center counsole or on the face of the radio itself. if you stil cant find one i would recommend a WIRED fm mod. NOT a wirelss transitter those are garbage but a wired one uses the factory antenna signal so you get a clean clear sound

Hi, the tape deck in my 2004 Ford Taurus SEL wagon is running slow, so music played sounds off. I am thinking of purchasing a tape converter for our mp3 player in the car. Will the slower speed affect...


well first off have you thought about getting a CD deck that has AUX input so you can hook up your MP3 to the deck by an AUX cable. as far as the tape player running slow i would say it needs to be cleaned by a professional because the little rubber belt may be going bad also. If you want to go to a AUX CD deck look at crutchfield.com or go to an authorized kenwood dealer in your area and look for the kenwood KDC-MP245. Going through the AUX instead of tape would sound a little bit better and if you want to go a bit better than the AUX then you should go to the KDC-HD545U. The KDC-MP245 is $99.99 before shipping and the KDC-HD545U is $169.99 before shipping. I hope I answered your question and please vote and leave high marks. Thank you very much.

Cant get radio into aux mode so i can play mp3 player directions in manual arent clear on how to get radio in auxilary mode


Hello luvbetty4eve,

Without knowing exactly what make and model of receiver you have, it's not possible to provide specific instructions. But for most receivers, both stock and aftermarket, there is a "source" button sometimes shown as "SRC". To change from one source to the next, you simply press the button repeatedly until the display shows the one you want, in this case usually "AUX".
