Switching to Auxiliary on older Pioneer car stereo

I recently in stalled a Pioneer KEH-P3700 that I bought years ago but never used - literally new in the box - in my '95 Saturn, planning to use an adapter cable plugged into the CD changer jack to connect a satellite radio or an iPod.
I have everything working, except that I cannot get the unit to switch to the Auxiliary setting. The instructions are not the greatest, but they seem to say that repeatedly pressing the Function button should cycle through different sources, including AUX.
However, all I can get are the tuner and M-CD. It does not seem to matter whether the adapter is attached to the unit, or whether anything is attached to the other end of the cable; just the two choices.

Am I missing something in the switching procedure, or is my "new" receiver malfunctioning?
Many thanks!

    Finally figured it out!


    You have to hold down the Function button for two seconds with the unit switched OFF; then you can set it to M-CD OFF and AUX ON.


    It actually is in the instructions, just not very clear, at least to me!

Thanks for the tip! I also had this issue. The Pioneer book for the unit never mentions this, maybe the adapter install book did, but I got mine off ebay without a guide. Works fine now though!

I am having KEH-P8900R/X1B/EW PIONEER, by default it is playing the radio station FM- AF, I am trying to change it AM, but I did not get sucess. Can you please advice, how to change it. Thanks &...


There should be a "band" button on the stereo. you may have to press it several times before you get to AM mode, depending on how many FM stations it will store in it's memory.

I have a pioneer cassette player, how can I input a auxiliary audio into pioneer keh p5450,(like ipod,usb drive....)


ipods come with a transmitter that plugs into the ipod. it has an fm radio instruction manual tells you what frequency to tune to and how to select the station on the transmitter. this way you dont wire anything into your cd player, providing it has fm radio.

I have a KEH-P1010 it just keeps switching the casseette back and forth and won't play it.


Are you using the same casettes in the car all the time? It sounds like the tapes are getting loose on the spool. Try a new casette that hasn't been used in the car.

New iTouch doesn't work in DEH-P4800MP


The newest versions of the Iphone uses USB charging only, while older generations of (any) Ipods used firewire for charging. First generation Iphone and Ipod Touch could be charged with either method. Most docks historically used the firewire charging method, making them incompatible with all but 1st generation Iphones. You need a new cable/charger that charges with the USB method.

PIONEER KEH-P1010


depends on the kind of car, if there is a "CAN" around it then there is a metal cahe that you need to slide 2-4 removal tools in the sides to remove it, you can use any think metal tabs abought 3-4 in long as removal tools,

if its an ISO DIN mount there are screws holding it in from the sides.

if this doesnt help much can you tell me the make and model of the car?
