How to Use Chevy AUX Input

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

Many late-model Chevrolet vehicles have radio auxiliary (Aux) inputs. These inputs are partially due to the popularity of portable music devices, such as MP3 players. You can use your Chevy's "Aux" input to play music from your compatible portable device through your vehicle's speakers. The input is also compatible with the Apple iPod; however, you cannot control any device through the radio--audio track changes must be made on the device.

1

Turn your key to the "On" position to power on your Chevy's electronics. Alternatively, start the engine.

2

Attach one end of the cable into the audio jack on your radio face plate (usually located on the lower-right side of the radio).

3

Attach the other end of the cable into your compatible device's "Output" or "Headphone" jack. Turn your device on.

4

Press the "CD/Aux" button (press it twice rapidly if a disc is in your player) on your radio.

5

Begin playing music on your device. Adjust the volume on the device, as well as the volume on your radio, to find a comfortable level.

6

Switch between audio tracks on your device as you normally would.

Tip

  • check To stop using the device, simply power it off or unplug the audio cable from your Chevrolet's radio.
