2010 Suzuki Kizashi: iPhone No Go

October 07, 2010

At the risk of getting a "Caroline, you eediot!" comment, I don't know how to listen to my iPhone in our 2010 Suzuki Kizashi.

Yesterday I plugged it into the 'Zashi's USB port. It started to play the music and charge my iPhone and then flashed the message "This gadget isn't compatible blah blah" on my iPhone screen quickly replacing it with a "Accessory connected" one. But then suddenly the music stopped and it stopped charging my phone. I unplugged it, turned off the radio and my iPhone to see if I could just start all over again. No such luck.

The owner's manual didn't make any mention of how to troubleshoot this. Now, if it hadn't worked initially I wouldn't have questioned it and just plugged in a regular iPod. But the point is that it DID work at first, so why did it stop? The same thing happened with our Ford Raptor's USB port.

A Kizashi forum said that it will work with just playing audio but that wasn't the case here. Another forum mentioned just playing it via Bluetooth so that's good but I'm still curious about why the USB stopped working for my iPhone.

Anyone else have this problem? Please share and we can all learn.
