I just bought a truck with that headunit in it and i tried hooking up my ipod thru the AUX port on the back (the mini stereo headphone, its blue) and i get nothing. it makes the radio beep and then i can't control the volume on any source. I don't have the remote for it either, so apparently i can't set the time or anything like that. Is there another way or should i ditch it?
i don't think u have it in the aux port i think it's int the stereo or remote input port. that will cause the noise and volume issues you describe. like if u turn the volume up on the ipod the volume goes up and if u turn the head unit knob u get nothing. then it means ur in the line in jack.and the beep u hear i think is the ipods signature click wheel sound when u scroll through music.
