2009 Tacoma Radio/Aux Problems

I just bought a 2009 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner with factory sounds and the factory subwoofer option. I have noticed I get awful FM reception, but my main concern is the sound from the auxiliary port. The volume is low compared to a cd or the radio even when my ipod or phone is cranked all the way up. This just bothers me since I have to put it on max to get any decent sound out of it.

Is this just the way these Toyota stereos are, or should I go take it to the dealer?

Well that looks rather disappointing, guess I will have to look into aftermarket.

Thanks

I'm having the same issue with my new truck. Such a waste of a good aux input port. At least I now know I'm not the only one.

Actually 0.99 ebay plug. And they work, they're just quiet. How much did you spend on yours and is the volume sensitivity the same as if you were listening to the radio or a cd?

I don't have any issues with volume on my AUX input with either of my iPods. This is really weird.

For those without the aux problem, do you have the JBL system or the standard system? I have the standard system in my Tacoma that has low aux volume but my father's Tundra has a JBL system that has no issues with the aux port.

I have since replaced my stereo, but I had no problems with the AUX volume or quality and I had the standard 6 disk system.

I have been using the USA SPEC PA15-TOY for my iPod input, and the volume also sucks using this method. There are some hints and tips to make it louder, but none of them got it as loud as it should be, in my experience.
Plus, it kept disconnecting from the stereo at random intervals, and nothing would consistently make it reconnect until it was good and ready.
So, I have a new Alpine stereo on the way to me, and the stocker will be up for sale soon.

Could it be the volume limit setting on the iPod/iPhone being set too low? If you haven't changed the factory setting, go into "setting" and then scroll down to "iPod". Select that and then select "volume limit". Unlock the volume limit (I think factory default is "1111") and turn the volume limit up all the way. That may help.

I have a JBL system and my aux button doesn't work! Last night my battery died so I jumped it and now my auxillory won't work. But it worked right after I jumped it. But after i turned the car off and on it wont work anymore. Does anyone know what might have happened?
