Our interfaces are compatible with a large number of vehicles, however exceptions exist. Therefore, it is necessary to check on the site where the compatibility is specified for each vehicle and car radio or with our technicians who can inform you quickly.
The interface plugs into the back of your car radio in the slot dedicated to the CD changer. We offer you disassembly keys and tools to remove your car radio from its original location.
Of course, you can continue to use the CD player because it is totally independent from the MP3MyCar interface. However, when using the interface, you must not leave any CD in the player, otherwise the car radio will prefer the CD to the interface.
Of course, that's the whole concept of MP3MyCar, keep all your original installation and functionalities of your vehicle and add new ones! You can continue to use your steering wheel controls for example to increase or decrease the sound, pause, change track (track change for USB or Bluetooth interfaces only)...
Unfortunately no, this is not possible. You won't get any details about the artist's name or the title of the song. However, the interface will display the CD number or the track number.
All the vehicles have a connector for CD charger even if it is not active, so the interface will work with or without CD charger except for Nissan vehicles. Indeed, if the vehicle has a CD charger the interface will not work.
It depends on the brand of the vehicle, you must check this with our technicians. As for recent vehicles with fiber optics, they are not compatible with our interfaces.
Unfortunately not, our products are only available for delivery.
Yes, you have to connect these two wires (one inside the other) in order to activate the filtering of the parasites which will avoid any interference when listening to your music.
Specificities for Peugeot and Citroën vehicles
The activation of the CD changer function is essential for the proper functioning of our USB or Bluetooth interfaces. Indeed, if this function is not active, our products cannot be recognized and therefore cannot be used.
On the other hand, if you already have a 6-CD changer in your vehicle, it is very likely that the CD charger function is already activated and that our products work directly. You will not need to go to a dealership or garage to use our products.
Especially for PSA vehicles, activation is essential for a large number of models. Simply go to your Peugeot or Citroën dealer or to a car garage for activation, and they will activate the CD charger function for you via the diagnostic case. The operation is generally very fast. We also offer a complete procedure available on each Peugeot or Citroen product sheet that we sell.
Before going to the dealership or garage to have the CD charger option activated, it is strongly recommended:
- To connect the MP3MyCar interface to the RD3 or RD4 car radio of your Peugeot or Citroën before going to the RDV
- To print the CD loader activation guide and forward it to the technician who will activate the function.
La fonction AUX est également activable auprès de votre concessionnaire ou de vitre garage équipé de la valise de diagnostic. Cependant la fonction AUX doit être utilisée exclusivement pour les câbles auxiliaires ainsi que pour les câbles auxiliaires Bluetooth Peugeot ou Citroën.
La fonction Chargeur CD, doit être utilisée uniquement pour les interfaces USB ou Bluetooth MP3Mycar.
Si le technicien active la fonction AUX sur votre autoradio et que vous souhaitez utiliser les interfaces USB ou Bluetooth, elles ne pourront pas fonctionner.
Specificities for Audi, Volkswagen, Seat & Skoda vehicles
You have to connect it to a screw or to the carcass of the car radio (the metal part). We recommend the screw because the connection will be more robust. Without the ground wire connection, the interface will not work properly and you will certainly have interference when listening to audio.
Specificities for Renault vehicles
This is due to an imbalance of sound on the right or left side of your speakers. To correct this, you can adjust the speakers in the expert menu of your car radio.
For all vehicles with the Update List radio, the auxiliary cables as well as the USB and Bluetooth interfaces are 100% functional.
If you intend to buy an auxiliary cable, you will have to activate the auxiliary function at a dealer or by following our activation guide if it is not already active.
For all vehicles with the Tuner List radio, the auxiliary cables are unfortunately not compatible. This type of car radio only accepts USB and Bluetooth interfaces.
Specificities for Nissan vehicles
The red wire goes directly to the connector of the after contact and the yellow wire goes directly to the 12V antenna.
