USA SPEC ipod adaptor for my Honda Accord getting unreliable after 5 months

This question is answered

It installed easily and worked great until November or so when nighttime temps went below freezing.   I start the car, plug in the ipod and nothing happens for about an hour.  Then it suddenly comes alive.  My guess is that it's cold-related.

More recently it comes on after two hours and then sometimes quits. 

 Anyone recognize this behavior?  Is it a feature or a bug?

    Obviously, it a feature to USA-spec and a bug to you - just like Microsoft products ...

    Seriously - I would assume after 5-months it is still under warranty and I would probably pursue that option.

    Hope This Helps!!!

    Anyone else have suggestions?

  • While cold temps can be hard on products, it is not supposed to keep them from working. I checked our information on the USA Spec iPod adapters and did not find any issues with cold temps. I would follow TigerHeli's advise and check into getting it repaired or replaced under the warranty.
