  • Best place to get an AUX cable?

    So a few weeks ago, listening to my iPhone via the AUX cable connection (as no hi-fi pack unfortunately) the sound suddenly went very tinny and underwater sounding.
    Tried numerous cables and music outlets but still no change. Anyway the car went to Citroen yesterday where the psychic salesman (not even guy from the workshop) blamed my "lesser quality" cables straight away. Yet they're not like cheap crap off ebay... He finally asked for the keys, car went into the workshop and he came back saying his cable worked. He didn't prove to me it did or anything. Tried showing me a difference in size of the aux cables - the only difference was his was silver and mine gold lol, saying the fit was tight for his cable yet mine was loose. Well... anyone know where I can get a "better quality" cable from that works? as he didn't know about his one.
    thank youuuuuu

      Gold should have been better but I've got two neither of which I can put my hands on but there was no diff between the £15 and the £1 one from poundland except the dearer one had way too much cable.

        Most likely what has happened with your cable Jo is that the wire inside may have broken, when the cable is moved and bent around quite a bit this sort of thing tends to happen.

        Just pop into a Currys/Asda/Tesco and pick up a cable for a couple of quid and you should be set.

          I bought 4 cables now - cheap asda ones through to expensive maplins ones and none work. The garage left the main aux bit all loose, I went to open the cover to try a new cable and the whole unit popped out lol. (Can't post a pic as no laptop atm) So I played about a bit whilst it was all out. It works if I push the bottom cables up & tilt them a bit & also till the aux cable, so it's the actual connection bit and not the cables. I'm gonna go to a different place that won't be so condescending lol.

            Does sound like the socket is the problem Jo.

            I believe the CD player is capable of playing mp3 files from disc, so you could always burn a few mp3 discs when you get your laptop back.

              Definitely sounds like the socket is at fault if you can pull it up like that! Take a drive up to my work, we're really nice here
