Try spraying the iPod port and cable end with compressed air, or blowing on it with a dry mouth. Sometimes dust ends up messing with the electronic connection between the metal pins.
I would try a few different speakers such as an AUX port in a car, headphones, or a stereo system to eliminate the possibility of the problem being with the iPod itself. Consider replacing the speaker if it's still under warranty - it may be faulty.
Does your car player have a auxillary jack (looks like headphone hole)
or does it just have a tape player?
if it has an auxilary plug then you need to plug the cable from your ipod into that and set the stereo to aux for source.
if the car has a tape player go to the store and ask for the cassette that plugs into your headphone jack. then you can put that tape into the tapeplayer and plug the other end in your headphone port on the ipod and listen away
There are two ways you can use your ipod through your HU.
1. You can use the Aux port (located in the rear of your deck), which you will have to run AUX cable and connect it to the Ipod. Mind you this set up won't charge your ipod. Have to change the source to AUX for sound.
2. Through the USB cable that is included with the system connect your ipod (From the looks of things USB connection is also in the rear of the deck). Hit the Ipod button and that should be all she wrote.
The Mitsubishi Eclipse with the Rockford Fosgate premium audio system does not actually have an aux plug. When you are scrolling through the sources, one of them listed is an AUX. This implies that there is a headphone jack somewhere in the vehicle where you can plug an iPod into and play it through the system. The port, however, was never actually installed on all pre-2009 eclipses.
The only way to access this feature of the stereo is to obtain an AUX cable from the mitsubishi dealer, which will be a wire harness that connects to the back of the head unit and provides an additional AUX port cable allowing you to plug in your iPod. You can talk to your local mitsubishi dealer about the cable, from what I hear, its rather expensive, and then go to best buy, somewhere similar, to have them install it.
The adapter cable will convert the changer port on your head unit into an AUX input with dual RCA jacks. Once connected, the head unit will detect the cable and allow it to be another source (i.e. radio, cd, aux).
To connect your iPod to the adapter cable, use any iPod cable or dock that outputs to male RCA plugs.
