I just bought a 08 cts4 base model. I have a button on steering wheel that brings up an "aux input" mode on my information screen. Problem is, I can't find this input. There's a cigarette lighter with a small connection next to it in the center console. It looks like a standard head phone jack, but it has a pin in it similar to coax cable. Do I need some kind of adapter? Is this some kind of Cadillac proprietary connection? Any info will help!
My 2010 CTS4 (without a Nav pop-up screen) has an AUX in plug-in in the console. I can use my Ipod from there but I cannot control it from the steering wheel and it will not charge the Ipod. I did get an adapter from Bestbuy to plug into that power port that has a USB plug so I can use the cable that came with my Ipod to charge it and I can charge my cell-phone too.
aux port is just a generic audio-in so you will never be able to control a device with it but you can use any device
only the cars with the usb and aux jack can control ipods from the steering wheel and radio controls
(and you need the adapter harness/cable that plugs into both and has the 32 ipod connector on the other end - i don't think you can just plug into the usb)
I also have an '08 base CTS. As you said, there is a small input port in the center console. I got a cable from Radio Shack one end of which goes into the headphone jack of my iPad, and the other end goes into the input port in the console. Both ends are the same. There is no "pin" in the port. I press "auxiliary" on my dash and am able to play my iPad music with no problem.
