Are you fitting an aftermarket stereo? if so check the back and you should have 2 phono outputs for the amp,also have you checked the wiring behind the unit to see if all are connected? thirdly check the actual speakers themselves, are they even connected? id get the simple things out of the way 1st, if you need any help then pm me

Oh,

they only way to get it to work with the oem sterro, and you get id3 tags and control through the stero is via the cd changer lead, link in my sig,

Why do you wanna keep the cd changer? if you have 30+gb of ipod space you can have all your music on there

I have a lots of music stored on my pc and on cds, I didn't want to pay for itunes to get this music again. Does this make sense?

You can put all your music from your cds and computer on to your ipod for free,

You dont have to purchase the songs again through itunes,

Put cd in to pc, open itunes rip cd, it gets the track names and everything, then you just drag them all over on to your ipod,

All the music on your PC, click file, add folder to libary (in itunes) find the folder where all your music is, then all your music is now in itunes to drag to your ipod
