Put your car audio back in to the same position of your car and I hope you remember the power connections and other cable connections.
Choose the Tuner/Radio, play the ipod and you should be able to hear the music/podcast.
After I bought the Ipod I have thinking of hearing the podcast while I travel in my Car, I travel around 22 KMS which actually takes me an hour on Indian roads during peak hours.
