Thread: Ipod car cable wont work with iphone.

  1. #1
    Default Ipod car cable wont work with iphone.
    I bought this cable off of ebay and it works with an ipod touch and all other ipods. I have an iphone and it will not work on the iphone. The iphone doesnt even read that the cable is connected. Is there any way i could cut the cable and connect different wires to get it to work. If there is any way or a possible wiring diagram for the iphone that would be a big help.
    Thank you

    The cable looks like


    And the ebay page is
    Alpine M-BUS DIGITAL Audio Aux Input iPOD 5' CDM-9801 - eBay (item 310046355441 end time May-06-08 22:40:53 PDT)

    Sorry, but no =/

    This is because apple made it so only specific accessories could work with the iPhone.
    A Thanks is always nice =]

    Is there an adapter or application that will make this possible?

    Well i requested an app. for a similar problem like this alongggg time ago, but no luck.

    I dont know about aadapters, but i'd just search ebay for iphone car cables or whatever you're looking for, and buy a cheap one =]

    because theres not really a "best" one to choose.

    I have 2 of these on Kenwood head units and one installed on a Factory unit and they work GREAT did you connect the power and neg wires? It should work the cabels are the SAME as an iPod.

    Its an alpine head unit and the wire plugs into the cd changer. I asked the guy at the apple store and did a little research on it. He said that the iphone wiring is made a little different and they wouldn't be compatible. It charges but doesn't do anything else.
