6FL replacement cable

Here recently when I hook my iphone 4 up to the Y cable, it has been giving me problems. The 3.5mm audio jack is not seating right and audio fades in and out along with making scratching noises. Unplugging it and plugging it back in fixes it for a while. I was wondering if anyone has found a replacement cable that actually works good and charges their phone. Monoprice quit selling apple cables last year and I've seen a few on Amazon.

I mentioned the exact same problem to my dealer when I had the car in for unrelated service. When I picked the car up, a new one, still in plastic, was on the passenger seat. Works great now. If you are in warranty, it should be a no-charge replacement.

had the same problem used "contact cleaner" from radio shack which fixed it.

Ultimately i got new cable via warranty.

Also, my SA told me that occasionally the connectors under the armrest are the problems and just have to be replaced...
good luck

Ahh, I was just there last week because of a right rear turn signal malfunction! I'll try to call them today and see. I was also looking for a replacement cable that would be longer and allow me to use the phone instead of stuffing it in the console.

These retractable ones are pretty handy for this application and not very expensive.
