Default Stereo switching between radio & aux play

Stereo randomly switches between playing the radio and showing that there is an aux device plugged in and is doing it more each day. Nothing is plugged in and it was never really used much for iPhone/ipod use. Thoughts?

Default Re: Stereo switching between radio & aux play

Same thing happened to me a few years ago (it eventually went away). It seemed to occur when the outside temperature dropped, though I'm not exactly sure why.

I've got an '08 Aura XR 3.6L with stock radio btw

Glad to hear some one else has experienced this. Hopefully mine will also go away eventually. I am going to try using an ipod connector to see if somehow I can get the jack to not signal it is in use (basically plug & unplug a few times). Its pretty annoying having a song constantly cutout.

Default Re: Stereo switching between radio & aux play

Mine too. I discontinued XM a couple of weeks ago as my AURA has been relegated to pretty much weekend driving duties. Now, when I have an FM station tuned, it keeps jumping back to "aux" and I keep having to press the FM station button or cycle through the 6 "fav" selections and then it will stay tuned for a while. Seems to be happening more when I just start driving the car rather than when it's warmed up. It's a pain.

Try this. Using a connector for an ipod/phone, lightly push it in about 1/2 way while the radio is on and release. It feels like the aux port is lightly spring loaded and somehow moves on hard bumps. This worked for mine and now there has been no switching for a week.
