The front "aux" socket was conceived as a tape copy connection,and along with the microphone facility considered to be for intermittant use,so there is a switch incorporated into the socket to interrupt the radio function.

It's possible to adapt the unit for connection of external devices such as cd players and Bluetooth receiver's,but it's quite involved.

A crude "get around" solution might be to remove the metal body of the Din connector,and connect the cable without it.The metal body operates the switch when inserted.You would also need to set one of the radio presets to "no station"where the sound would be muted,otherwise you will hear radio and cd at the same time!!!That preset would become your "cd" function.
