    Pioneer AUX input problem

    Well after months and months of planning and buying and what not I finally installed my carputer. Everything is working beatifully. Except the aux input on my pioneer HU. The HU never recognizes an aux input. When you change the source it never goes to aux. My setup is a EPIA M board going into a CDRB10 which is plugged into my XM tuner which is plugged into the HU. I've tried pluggin the aux input thing straight into the HU but that did nothing. Anyone with Pioneer HU's using this aux input piece have any ideas of what could be wrong....please help. I can't believe this is the only thing holding me back from listening to music from the carputer. By the way the HU is the 940mp. Thanks

    hold the source-selecting button to turn it off, then hold the settings button(when it's on it's bass treble fade balance and so on) until it goes into the off menu, there you can enable aux. read the manual if any problems.

    lol what are the odds of this happening, I am struggling with the same exact problem myself, even down to the model numbers

    I have yet to try jol's suggestion, so if you get it to work, lemme know. If not, good luck!
    I've got a new car, but this one doesn't have a carputer. Definately a situation to be rectified. Sell me a DWW-700M!

    Turn the unit off,

    on some units it's the function button, on some it's the audio button, but anyways, after you turn the unit off, hold down the function or audio button for a few seconds, a menu will appear, tell it Aux = On, then after that turn your unit back on, the headunit will now have aux mode when you select it from the source button

    Then after you do that...rename the AUX input to something like..."MP3 Player"

    Hey frodo I used to do a lot of mountain biking at Lincoln Parish Park, when I lived in Shreveport. Even did a couple of Xterra time trials (just for fun)

    Thanks a lot guys. I thought that the HU would just detect a signal on the AUX input and turn it on like it does for XM. Guess not...should have read the manual. Anyway I got it to work...and I've been listening to my MP3's all weekend. It was great. Now I jsut need to get a CoPilot or Destinator and I'll be all set. Thanks again guys.

    just a bit of help for the people with older radios here...

    on my pioneer deck (DEH-P625) which is about 8 years old, the way to enable the AUX input is as follows:

    with the car off, press and hold button 7 (radio preset). turn the ignition to the on position. the radio will enable the aux setting but you can not rename it. you can then select the AUX input using the source button. you do the same procedure to turn disable the aux feature.

    hiding the multi-cd input is the same process, except you use button 8 instead.

    this might be different for other older models, but that is how it works on mine.
