    gotwald9,

    Thank you for your question. I have found the following information in your owners manual. I hope this information helps you.



    Rear Air Conditioning and Heating System and Electronic Climate

    Controls

    The rear heat and air conditioning controls are part of the rear seat audio controls located in the

    center console. The system can be controlled from the front controls as well as the rear controls.

    To turn the system on, press the AUX button on the front climate control system, an indicator will be lit. Pressing the AUX button the first time will turn the rear system on in a mimic mode. In this

    mode, the airflow in the rear will be approximately the same direction, temperature, and fan speed as the front. Pressing the AUX button again will turn the rear system and the indicator off.

    If the rear controls are adjusted, the system will enter a rear independent mode. Airflow in the rear will then be directed according to the settings of rear controls. The rear system can be turned off by pressing the AUX button on the front climate control system and the indicator will turn off.

    If the indicator in the front AUX button is off, the rear system is off.



    Using the AUX Display (If Equipped)

    If your vehicle has rear seat entertainment, you will see an AUX screen as you press through the SRCE key. When AUX is selected in the front, the audio from the device plugged into the auxiliary jacks in the rear will be played over the vehicle speakers. You have the ability to select between AUX and DVD video on the video screen while listening to AUX audio. See Rear Seat Entertainment System on page 299 for more information on the auxiliary jacks. The A/V jacks are located on the rear of the floor console. The A/V jacks allow audio or video signals to be connected from an auxiliary device such as a camcorder or a video game unit to the RSE system. Adapter connectors or cables may be required to connect the auxiliary device to the A/V jacks. Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for proper usage. The A/V jacks are color coded to match typical home entertainment system equipment. The yellow jack is for the video input. The white jack is for the left audio input. The red jack is for the right audio input. Power for auxiliary devices is not supplied by the radio system. To use the auxiliary inputs of the RSE system, connect an external auxiliary device to the color-coded A/V jacks and turn both the auxiliary device and the video screen power on. If the video screen is in the DVD player mode, pressing the AUX button on the remote control will switch the video screen from the DVD player mode to the auxiliary device. The radio can listen to the audio of the connected auxiliary device by sourcing to auxiliary. See Radio with CD and DVD on page 268 for more information.

    Does it have a USB plug or an aux input?

    On the navigation screen it does say AUX. Just bought the car a week ago and I don't think it has a USB port? I do have the rear entertainment system.

    Do you have the owners manual? Are there any sockets in the center console? Take it by a Caddy dealer ask ask them to show you.

    Thank you so much for the information, much appreciated. Do you know if I need a special cable and what kind?

  • texases 05/21/12 9:57 am PST

    I bet if you drop by a Radio Shack or a car audio store somebody'd be happy to show you what cable you need. Have you located the socket(s)? There might be one in front, too. And your local Caddy dealer is another place to ask. But you don't need to buy the cable there.
