Re: My aux wont recignise my ipod
Possible, but if your iPod is playing through an aux input, it is just gonna be analog audio through a headphone jack. Basically, if you have sound through headphones, then you can pipe that into any source unit. What radio do you have (brand and model number)? some radios have menus that require that you first turn on "Aux" before you'll hear any audio through it. Depending on brand and model, some units have "Aux1" and "Aux2".
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I assume your Apple Aux adapter in your GMC Acadia is overheating. If so, the problem is with improper insulation or poor wiring in the center audio console. Ask your GMC technician to have a look into the insulation inside the dashboard and center audio console.
If the engine is overheating when you plug in Apple device to the Aux adapter, then it is the case of wiring fault that clashes with the engine's cooling fan circuit. Most probably some loose contacts inside the dash creating some ground or electrical disturbances.
A visit to the GMC service will fix this. Also if your GMC is still under warranty, you better do not do anything fixes on your own. Such un-authorized fixes could void the warranty and GMC can take it for granted for all future services that falls under warranty!
if the aux input at the rear works, then the fault relates to the docking arm or the interface on the back. (Does the ipod charge on the docking arm, have you tried another type of ipod, as different ipods have different connections through the arm!)
if the aux input does not work, then the main board/amp/pse could be an issue.
if the model is more than six months old it will probable have the known problem boards, so contact b and w servie and they should check it out.
if the system is on, try a feed on the aux unit, if that works then it is the docking arm. there are faults on these units that b and w are aware or, they should fix the fault anf update the parts which are the cause of probels in all but the very latest models.
I have had then same exact problem, except I had an ihome. I've done research on it for a way to fix it. basically what I have come to find is that the plug for the ipod is just cheaply made, and that there is basically no easy and cheap fix for it. However as long as you have an aux-in you can just simply avoid the problem by buying an eighth inch to eighth inch cord so that you can just simply plug you ipod into the aux-in. As long as you have the ipod plugged into the the aux-in, and aux mode is selected, it should play your music while charging.
Add Alpine's optional "Full Speed" connection cable and you'll be able to use the CDE-9872 to control your iPod. -Crutchfields website
This is compatible with first and second generation iPods touch. fyi- if you have a mini-stereo aux in jack on the deck you can connect a ipod touch compatible mini stereo cable to the earphone jack of your ipod.
use the aux lite input on the rear of the reciever. If it is a 3.5mm plug, you will need an extension with both ends male. One end in the aux port, on your head unit, the other end in the headphone jack of the ipod.
If it is RCA Aux lite, you need an rca-to-3.5mm adapter. Either item should be relatively cheap. $4-$5 USD
Hi guys, just figured out how to hook up your Ipod to the above mentioned stereo, Here is how...
- Put your stereo in STBY mode, then push the menu button, scroll up or down and you get different options to change clock and AUX settings, my AUX was OFF and I had to select ON. Now you can push your Sorce button (the one that puts the stereo in STBY) and you will have the AUX option this will allow you to play your MP3 players and Ipods. ENJOY!
I spent a few hours looking for this very explination so I hope this saves the rest of you some time. Safe driving.
