Can I connect my iPhone to the USB jack that came with my car to access the music. It keeps going off and on, no music, no charging. Do I need to mess around with the settings on the iphone? Or what?

The obvious questions:

If it's a factory radio, what kind of car is it?

If it's an aftermarket radio, what is the model number?

We don't have a clue what car you have. Which means that we have no clue what the capabilities of the USB port and the radio in your car happen to be.

The USB port in my car works great with an iPod. Haven't tried it with my iPhone since I also have Bluetooth in the car and that is even better.

I'm not too clear from your description exactly what's happening. If the connection is going in and out, you should get another cable and/or verify it's making a good tight connection in the USB port. It could be a short some place else in the cabling of the car also.

The best two places to look for help are going to be your vehicle's owners manual and find a forum for your vehicle. At least there you'll find others with your car and your radio.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
