Why Isn’t My Aux Working In My Car?

If you’ve ever tried to plug your phone into your car’s aux port and had it not work, then you know just how frustrating that can be. Here are some reasons why your aux might not be working in your car, and how you can fix them.

You’ll need to make sure that the port is compatible with the type of phone or music device you’re using. If it isn’t, there are adapters available for many different devices—check out our blog post about Bluetooth adapters here.

If you’re having issues with one cord, try another one. You may be able to find one that works better than yours. It sounds silly, but we all make mistakes. Make sure both ends of the cord are completely plugged into their respective ports before trying anything else.

What are the possible causes?

If you have a faulty cable, it may not be able to transmit sound to your car’s audio system. You can check this by plugging another device into the same aux port and seeing if it works. If it does, then there’s a problem with the cable.

If the audio still doesn’t work after checking your cables, then you might be able to fix this issue by buying a new one.

The aux port is broken

If your aux port is not working, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot. Make sure that your phone is properly connected to the aux port. If it’s not, try reconnecting it. You might also want to check that the cable itself isn’t damaged or bent out of shape.

If you’re using a wired headset, then it’s possible that the jack has become dislodged from its housing. Use a toothpick or other small object to gently push it back into place and see if that fixes the problem.

The aux cord is broken

If you’re having trouble with your aux cord, the first thing to do is check that it’s not broken. If it seems like it might be, try using a different cord or connecting directly to the stereo. If you still can’t get anything to work, then it’s time to look at other factors.

The aux cable is broken

If your aux cable is broken, it can be hard to take it out of the car. You should be able to remove it by using a phone case or a plastic bag to protect the connectors from breaking.

How does it work?

Aux is short for an auxiliary port. It is a port on the front of most cars, usually near the stereo, that you can connect an auxiliary cord. This allows you to play music from your phone or another device through your car’s speakers.

The aux connection is not always active in cars. It may be turned off by default or require a special switch or button to be activated before it can be used. You can check your car’s manual to see if there are any special instructions for using the aux connection.

You Have an Old Car and the System Doesn’t Support Aux Inputs

If you have an old car, it’s possible that the system in your car doesn’t support aux inputs. This could be because your car is an older model and hasn’t been updated with newer technology yet.

There’s not much you can do to solve this problem. You can try removing all unnecessary accessories from your car like GPS units or Bluetooth systems and plugging them directly into a USB port on your stereo if possible.

If that doesn’t work, then, you’ll just have to keep listening to the radio or CDs until you get a new car.


If you’re having trouble with your aux cord, just remember that there are lots of different factors that can contribute to the issue. Make sure you have the right cable and adapter for your car. Make sure you’ve properly installed the cable and adapter in your car.

Make sure that if there is a shortcoming in one or both of these things, it’s not due to user error and if it is, consider sending your adapter back to its manufacturer for a replacement or refund.
