No your not missing anything, the unit is probably faulty. When connected and working it should switch between CD and AUX when you press the AUX/CD button.

I have a 2004 accord 6 disk changer, XM. I got the "Peripheral Electronics" Adapter for my IPod that plugs into the xm port. If you have a port then it should work. Is there any jumper switches on the unit. Do you have a solid connection, because it is kind of hard to plug it in from the back, unless you rip the hole radion/cd-changer unit out.

Also try to contact the tech support person @ Soundgate, they should be able to help you out.

What is this sound gate for? Ipod (controls the ipod through factory stereo)? or just regular Aux?

Does the plug fit? if it does then it is right, but what I am thinking right now is that since there was nothing plugged in to that port, how is it getting power? is your sound gate powering up?

Yeah, mine clicked when it was back in place....there is also a little lock on the male connector that pops up when it is all the way in. Check the specs on the sound gate, you sure it is for your car/year? Cuz 03 is very diff from 04. Is there diff. wire set in the kit?

The adapter is either incompatible or broken, that is the correct place to plug it in on the bottom of the radio. Make sure your adapter is compatible with an 03, the adapters don't work with all 7th gens.

Is there a status light? Use a volt meter if you have one, you have to get to the bottom of this somehow.
