#43 of 58 Toyota Prius Radio Problems
Aug 26, 2007 (1:49 am)
I have a 2004 Toyota Prius with the #9 package including JBL Sound and Navigation. The car has a little over 26K miles and has been relaible, comfortable, and economical so far. I have noticed a problem with fairly severe "bleed through" of electrical static and whine through the audio section when the radio is played in AM mode. Its a function of the throttle position and is definitely related to the hybrid drive power output. The dealer noted that a shield cover had fallen off the dash speaker. After it was replaced I had no static for about three weeks, but its back now with a vengence. I have found reference to the static problem in one other place, and suspect that its a lot more common than that. The problem started soon after the display was replaced. ANyone have a similar experience? If so, was it resolved?
#44 of 58 Toyota Prius 2004 CD player Problem
Aug 27, 2007 (6:40 am)
I have Prius 2004, and my CD is not working. I can't retrieve CDs, Display shows "CD Error" message. Looks like one CD stocks somewhere in the middle of tracks or any other mechanical failure. At DealershipI was told that the whole unit needs to replaced (exchanged) and it would cost $600.
Is anybody have a similar experience, or suggestion on what can be done to reduce the repair cost?

I've got the same problem. This should be covered with the warranty, correct?
#46 of 58 "Pop" heard between songs w/MP3 player
Oct 07, 2007 (10:51 am)
Okay, I've got a 2007 Prius, package 2. When I am using my mp3 player and the AUX connection, I get a "pop" between songs. Other than that, the sound is fine. Anyone have a similar problem? So far, I've tried two lines and heard the pop with both lines. I've got a Sansa mp3 player. When I borrowed an ipod, no pop. So, it seems like the player is the problem. Suggestions?
#47 of 58 Mp3 Aux Jack Causes Mp3 Player to Reset
Oct 20, 2007 (10:01 am)
I have a 2008 Prius with 6 CD mp3 player and an auxiliary jack. When I plug in my mp3 player (Creative 30GB), the player almost immediately resets and rebuilds its hard drive, and it continually does this making the mp3 jack useless, and perhaps endangering my mp3 player. This is unique to the car stereo, as I hook the player up to my home stereo, computer speakers at work, etc., with no problems. I figure the car stereo is sending some electric current into my stereo, rather than passively accepting the audio, but whatever it is I'd like to know if anyone has suggestions?

#50 of 58 2004 Prius - Blue Tooth phone works but not B-T Music
Jul 28, 2009 (5:13 am)
My BlackBerry 8130 Pearl works perfectly as a phone.
How do you set up the music player.
The 2004 Prius does not have an AUX music input jack.

I don't see too many people posting that they just bought a USED prius. Maybe that's a good thing, Maybe not? Makes me wonder why the one owner before me got rid of it, lol.
Anyway, I just bought a used 2006 prius. Don't know what package. Is there any way to tell?
Also, I was under the impression that all 2006's had the AUX jack? I'm a huge audiophile, and being chained to regular radio is driving me nuts. I do not own an ipod (for god sakes, there's better things out there than those things). Can anyone tell me how I can find the AUX input if there is one. I looked all over and inside the center console and dash, but cannot find it.
If I don't have one, is there a way I can hook one up directly to the factory radio, besides the FM modulator route.
#52 of 58 2010 Prius IV Bluetooth Phone Problem
Sep 24, 2011 (8:53 am)
Our 2010 Prius and our 2 HTC Incredible phones were working perfectly until yesterday. Now, when we try to make an outgoing phone call, using dial by name or dial by number, the process begins and then suddenly cuts out and the radio comes back on. Receiving calls have also stopped coming in to the car. I have tried pairing and re-pairing both phones and the problem is the same. The problem is not the phones, for each one works just fine on thier own. Any hints as to what is happening? Has anyone else had this problem? If yes, how was it resolved.
