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 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.

Trying to hook up a pioneer car stereo model # KEH M8550


Depends on the type of car you have. Do you have a harness or are you going to splice all the wires? Does your car have a premium sound system? Are you going to run an amplifier now or later on in the future??

Pioneer receiver sx-315


With persistence, I was able to program the Universal Remote Control provided with the cable box to control my new used Pioneer SX-315 receiver. I now can control the tv volume, cable box, auxiliary stereo receiver with speaker system with one remote. Thank goodness I did not have to resort to buying a Pioneer remote control.

I was able to program another previously unused universal remote which I purchased several years ago. However, since the other remote control did not list the Vizio TV. That brand is too new for the remote.
