    Hey,

    It seems whenever i connect my ipod into the front aux, sound only comes out of the right side speakers, even when i change the sound balance towards the left, the left speakers still don't make any sound. When listening to cd's or the radio all speakers work fine. I have also tried and tested my cable which connects my ipod to the aux and it is not broken and working fine. Anyone else having these problems? cheers

    This may sound completely stupid, and I assume you have already tried it, but it happened to me also. If the AUX plug isnt pushed firmly all the way in it doesnt make full contact to make a left / rigtht stereo signal.
    It happened to me once to me and I was only getting sound from one side. It took me a while to realise the cable wasnt pushed right in. Otherwise, unsure if the Ipod has any balance settings, but Im guessing you have looked at that also.

    Yep easy fix. Push the cable connection in firmly.

    yeah it is firmly pushed in, and the balance setting on the ipod are fine as well. Seems to be a problem with the aux cables or something behind the front dash i guess?

    hey mate i seem to be having the same problem as you are with the audio input, with the sound only coming out of one speaker and sounding heaps bad
    i have tried different cables and different ipods stuff but still does it

    did you manage to get yours fixed?

    try a different cable
    try a different ipod WITH BOTH CABLES

    if neither fix it go to holden tell them to DIAGNOSE may need a new face plate for your radio

    im using a cable with like 3 black bands on it rather than 2 on most audio cables... works pretty well for me, though the quality is never as good as cds.

    If it turns out to be the cable don't waste your time buying the cheapest one you can get your hands on a $20 belkin AUX from jbhi will do the job nicely thick cable had it for than 2 years now and still goes strong no problems.

    hey guys. yeah i have this exact same problem. my AUX port was dicky for a while and any cable I used had to be positioned exactly right. but it kept getting worse and worse until finally sound only came out of the right speakers, with terrible quality. i tried multiple inputs and cables but still had the problem. took it to holden and the guy pulled out the head unit and they decided it was a volume problem, even though i told them the socket had been playing up for months. they said they'd get back to me about it but never did. i'm planning to go back and get them to give me a real quote because my warranty has run out. not keen on paying for it though.

    as a side note, this same dealer notified me of a heating hose needing replacing and said they'd order one in. never got back to me and now i don't get any heating in the left side of the car. VE series 1 + Hamilton Holden = fail.

    Hey mate, just wondering how you fixed this problem if you did? My input has just shat itself and I dont want to have to fork out for a new fascia for the head unit

    Hey bud. Unfortunately for you I just palmed the car off to some sucker and landed myself with an 09 Calais instead (no AUX problems - yet!). Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Is anyone else having this issue? I recently bought a 08 VE SV6 Ute 60th Anniversary, tried multiple cables but still only have sound coming from the left hand side speaker? And very distorted and minimal sound? Expensive job to get fixed?
    Thanks guys -Hannah
