I have the same problem with my Rav, and it's a known issue. It actually confirms this in the 2006 Rav4 manual. There is a section in the manual about the auxillary input and it says that you may hear noise while plugged into the aux input and the DC power. The solution in the manual says to use the MP3 player on it's own power. I think that's a lazy way for Toyota to resolve a problem when it's obviously a design flaw and they could have just grounded it properly. I had a 2004 Corolla with an afermarket radio with auxillary inputs, and my same ipod never produced any noise when used on DC power, but my new Rav does. What a disappointment.

Toyota 2007 RAV4 owners manual, page 408, left column....
"....Use of winter tires on the front only can lead to excessive traction on the front vs the rear which can result in loss of direction control....."
Toyota 2007 RAV4 owners manual, page 408, right/third column...
"...Do not install snow/tire chains on the rear, ONLY on the front..."
No attempt to replicate exact phasing.
FWD and admittedly unsafe/hazardous to boot...!!

You've got to be a Troll. The 07 RAV isn't being sold yet and you have access to the owners manual? I don't think so Scooter.

I use my iPod in my 07 Camry Hybrid with no extranious noise. 12V Belkin adaptor (from Best Buy) plugged into the 12V outlet..It attaches via cable (mini plug to plug) into the aux outlet. The Belkin then plugs into the port on the iPod...Keeps the iPod charged also.
The iPod will pause, and go to sleep, when the car is shut down. When i get back in the car, just a push or 2 of the play button on the iPod resumes the play right where it left off...

Thanks for the timely info, WWEST. I for one appreciate someone watching out to correct the misinformation that runs rampant in these forums. The people who write those types of posts, as you say, obviously do not know what they are talking about - they are the real culprits here. Why anyone would object to a correction post is beyond me. Some people prefer soothing politeness to accuracy, I guess.

Well it would be nice if the correction post was correct instead of dogmatic "my way or the highway" type comments.

owners manual is available at techinfo.toyota.com
But I am comfortable that the very same wording is available on previous RAV4 models as it is in my 2001 RX300 owners manual.

light duty towing would be the best scenario. pulling a boat up a ramp doesn't usually fall into that catagory.
a couple of jet ski's on a trailer, probably ok.
how many tractor trailer rigs are there with fwd bias?
