When I bought the car the man had a cable coming from the back of the unit and I would just plug in my I pod and play. I had to put the source on AUX. well I had to jump start my car yesterday and now when I switch to AUX it say M-CD. I don't know where AUX went to. I go and switch to CD and that works then go to Tuner and the radio FM works fine but the AUX won't show up. I don't know how he did it by hooking the Ipod cable to the back but it has been working awsome until yesterday
Hi nhmteam. I have the solution for you:
1. With your DEH-P3000 turned off, press your FUNCtion button. It's a tiny button towards the upper right of the faceplate. Hold it down until you "ALARM OFF" or "ALARM ON" on the display. Release the button.
2. Press the FUNCtion button again and you should see another feature. I don't remember how many features you need to cycle through, but keep releasing and pressing the FUNCtion button until you see "M-CD ON" on the display. If you miss it just keep going and eventually it will come back.
3. On the right side of your faceplate there is a button with 4 arrows. You will need to push the up or down arrow until the display reads "M-CD OFF". If your display already reads "M-CD OFF", kip to the next step.
4. Press and release the FUNCtion button again and you should see "AUX OFF" on the display. Again press the up or down arrow until the display reads "AUX ON".
5. Now, turn on your unit, then press the INPUT button until the display reads "AUX". You are now ready to use your iPod in the way you always did. Keep these instructions for the future since I believe every time you disconnect the unit from the battery the unit will reset itself and disable your iPod cord.

Re: i have a pioneer DEH-P3000
You will need to reset the radio. The best way to do this is to remove the battery cable for about an hour and retry it. If that does not work, you have a problem in the microprocessor, but the resetting should work. Good Luck

behind the unit where the connection wires are, is a black cable that has a usb plug in the end of it.
although to play ipods in the unit, pioneer recommend using the CD-iU50 adapter cable. a normal ipod cable may work with certain ipods so i would try that first. I am pretty certain that it just wont charge certain ones. if you bought the unit new it should have had a usb extender cable included in the box.
to access the cable you will need to remove the source unit to plug in your ipod cable.
i hope i have helped you and please dont forget to rate.
open up your dash get 1 short RCA cable (red and white) male ends on them
now place the red and white RCA into the back of DVD in-dash player next step the aftermarket CD player should have 2 rca plugs that say aux put the other end red and white RCA cable that you just put into DVD unit into the aux inputs on back of CD player when this is done reinstall both units back into the dash now on your CD player press the source button till aux appears once this is done you will hear the DVD player sound...........now if you press the source button and no aux appears......hold down the source button till the CD player powers off...........once CD player is off hold down the F (function) button till beep or unit turns on a display use the skip buttons or F (function) button to go threw features once you get to aux turn aux to on now hold the source button down again till unit powers on normally once this is done press source button again till you find aux........if you get sound and the TV doesn't work let me know and ill guide you to get that running too (if there are no aux RCA plugs on the back of CD player) let me know (sometimes there is a headphone looking plug on back of CD units) if what i told you doesn't work let me know the brand of CD player you have so i can give you correct setups I'm only going by your in-dash DVD player right now
hope i was able to help get you sound
Yup...if you use an alternative power source for the usb device....it appears to work fine now. I have (bought from fry's electronics) an adapter now that plugs into my cig lighter and haven't had any trouble anymore.
Some Sony head units let you use the Bus audio inputs as an auxiliary source input, but yours is not among them. To play your iPod through the head unit, you'll either need an iPod interface module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-110IP
or an auxiliary input module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-300
The iPod interface will allow you to control and display the iPod directly through the head unit, while an auxiliary input adapter will allow the iPod to play through the head unit using the iPod's controls and display.
