How do I connect an auxiliary device?

You can play an external device through your sound system, via the auxiliary jack. To do so, follow these steps: 1. Locate the auxiliary port, which is in the center console. 2. Make sure your device is turned off. 3. Plug one end of a standard auxiliary cable into your device, and the other end into the vehicle’s auxiliary port. 4. Turn on the radio or a CD, and tune the volume to the desired volume. 5. Turn on your device, and set the volume at 50%. 6. Press the AUX button on your sound system until Line in Active or Auxiliary Audio Active is displayed. 7. Play a track, and adjust the volume of your device to match the volume you were listening to before.
