iPod integration

I own a 08 F430 with factory installed iPod cable The iPod does not charge while driving and goes into sleep mode when the motor is turned off for a short period. Thoughts on what may be causing this and how it can be rectified.

Mitchell,
Newer iPods/iPhones are not compatible with some older cables, and frequently won't charge (even with Apple equipment).
As for sleep mode, I believe they sense when power is disrupted, even if they are not charging, and will go to sleep. You might try adjusting the Auto Lock or Screen Lock settings on the pod/phone.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

You need one of these, I used it on my 07 430 coupe and now on my 16M.

Russell thank you again. I installed the adapter and the iPod works as I had hoped. Before I posted , I had asked the dealer and an Indy and they had no clue.
