How do I connect an MP3 player to car CD player?

Hi All,

Does anyone know how I connect my MP3 player or even an iPod to my car CD player?

The car CD player is a Sony CDX F5550 if that helps?

I can't find any kind of MP3 ports on the fron or rear of the car CD player, but there are audio out front & rear connections and also bus control in and a bus audio in connections, Can I connect through one of these? if so what lead do I need to buy?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Fred :-)

use the bus audio input.
You'll need a 3.5mm to rca converter cable: http://cgi.ebay.com/15FT-2-RCA-Male-3-5mm-jack-MALE-Audio-Stereo-Cable-/180579891351?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a0b667897

you won't be able to control the ipod from the head unit, but the sound quality will be very good.

Or go and buy another headunit that supports AUX 3.5mm in. They can be gotten for literally $80 for a Sony one
