The audio input is on the left side of the glovebox wall inside the glovebox. You press the CD/Radio/Aux button until it says AUX, uselessly, where the CLOCK readout should have been.Thank you! I'm so pumped to get my Smart and wanted to pick up an auxillary cable to use with my iPod so that when I pick up the vehicle and drive it 3 hours home, I can be rocking out to my music.
Any other good tips for first-timers?
I'm gonna store that little bit of info in the ol' memory bank. Good to know, coming from an electrically-inclined individual. Thank you![...]Don't plug anything into the jack and go to AUX with the radio on. Turn the volume control and listen for a thumping noise every time the volume control clicks. That's the first indication of the problem. Might want to try that before signing the contract. Replacement radios are expensive.[...]
You're not going to get anything from any OEM or aftermarket manufacturer. You don't work for them, you aren't qualified in their eyes to work on the product, regardless of your credentials.The 9 and 10 radios are made by a US company called Visteon, that also makes all the OEM Ford radios/players. When asked for a schematic and parts locator, I was told that was secret and proprietary information of Visteon and they wouldn't send me any information. I'm a highly skilled electronic technician with over 45 years of experience with a shop, but can get no information to help me fix this Visteon crap. It's still broken. I gave up.
:rofl: I feel that way sometimes!Larrry is just unlucky in life.
