hhmmmm.....can you tighten the connection?
are you talking about the 1/8th" stereo jack input or the USB input jack? the 1/8th" aux in. was available as early as 2008, and i have the single disk AM/FM/XM with that jack in my 08 GT. the USB input didnt come until 09.5 i beleive. i havent had any problems with mine.There's nothing to tighten...it's just a male input jack and it goes in but very loosely. I don't know what the deal is. It's extremely strange.
I'm surprised more people haven't had this issue. Maybe it's only cuz the 09's were the first to have the Mp3 jack or something.
You could be right with your guess at the whole millimeter thing. There are two common size mini stereo jacks and plugs, 3.5 mm (1/8") and 2.5 mm (3/32"). If the plug doesn't offer any resistance at all when you insert it and falls out on its own, it's possible that it is 2.5mm. The AUX IN jack on the stereo is 3.5mm. Apple is one company known to use the smaller plug/jack on some of their iPods. Also some cel phone use the smaller set.I bought the standard Mp3 Ipod jack for my 2009 Pontiac G6 V6 which has the Mp3 plug-in directly in the dash and the plug won't stay put. It seems like it's just ever so slightly too small, like a milli-milli meter, any ideas? The cable seems like the right one, any one else have this issue?
Pulling the radio out won't help unless you want to take the radio itself apart. That is probably possible but an easier way may be getting a very strong vacuum over the jack. Really depends what's been jammed in there. If it's the tip of a male jack I can think of another possible thing to try but try the vacuum first. Gonna have to be a very strong vacuum.It might be, could I take the stereo and find out or is there an easier to remove the obstruction.
