Hi All

 

2005 Mondeo TDCI estate 

 

I hook my IPOD up to the aux socket in the glovebox and have fed the cable around the back as the ipod sits neatly under the steering wheel column.

 

It works fine but when I have the glovebox open, but as soon as i close it i lose one side of the stereo which is pretty frustrating! 

 

I guess its a problem with the jack making contact with the socket but has anyone found a fix?

 

Can i possibly hard wire it in behind the glove box? or is there a better solution

 

Thanks in advance!

Scrap the standard fitting as they are renowned for wiggling around and causing crossed connections.

Just fit one of these instead, far more reliable.-

Glad to help.
I know that the standard sockets are junk.
Once snapped into place the only way to remove them is to break the lugs which is a bit dumb.
On my car i have a cable coming out from behind the ashtray which is a perfect location to plug into an iPod controller sat in the 12v socket i have there.
Certainlty saves on random wires running across the footwells and dash especially as the wife throws bags into the passenger footwell every time she gets in.

I've got the estate with the Sony 6CD system. Had the occasional problem with one channel on the MP3 disappearing but strangely since I removed the glovebox to get at the fuses I haven't had it happen again. Probably untwisted the lead. :rolleyes:

It's that movement of the two parts of the aux socket that causes the problem.
Awful design.
