Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi,If you have a post-2009 Classic you should have full compatibility, however there are two important things to note about using this (or any Apple device) on this system:1) The system expects a playlist to operate from. While the iPod does not require it, the Mitsubishi system can sometimes malfunction if there is no playlist.
2) When using Apple devices on this system the device controls are inoperative... it relegates control to the radio buttons only, and you will not have access to the iPod menu while it is operating.There are compatibility issues on later OS versions as well, however that is less of an issue with iPods as it is with iPhones of course. You can read more about the operation of the system and see compatibility notes etc on the FUSE site below:http://mitsubishi-en-us.visteonhandsfree.com/mediaplayers
Oh my apologies. In that case check your iPod software version, make sure it is not 8.0 or higher... we have compatibility issues with versions at 8 or higher. If it is below 8.0, try a different device to verify operation of the vehicle system... if you are unable to get a different device to work either, then there is an issue with the HFM in the car and would be covered under your factory warranty. If the other device works, then there is more likely to be an issue with direct compatibility of your iPod.
For what it is worth, having the system start playing but not have interaction beyond that makes it more likely there is an issue with compatibility to your iPod specifically... if the OS version is not the later versions that cause problems, then I would try wiping the device and just putting minimal songs on there and one play list to see if it changes behavior any.
Hey, that's great news!I'm glad to hear it straightened out :)
