I have an Audi and a BMW with manufacturer's cables for Ipod connection. My Nano works perfectly well in both cars.

When I plug in my 160 Gb Classic the channels do not come through, as if the plug was loose - one channel works and if I move ot the other channel works.

The interface works properly but not the sound. This IPOD works perfectly well in cradles, etc

Any ideas?

Are the plugs differnt from the Classic to the Nano??

    The dock connector is the same, but one may be more worn out from use.  If you can make the channels work by nudging the connector, that is probably the case. 


    As a test, connect a "cradle" where it works to the car's docking cable in the car (if that's possible), and then connect the iPod to the cradle
