excuse my simplicity i dont know much about car audio.

Im using my phone to play music through my car stereo using the aux port. it used to work fine up until about two weeks ago when the sound started to only come out of the right speaker. this was just when using aux though. cd's and radio worked fine. i figured it was probably the cord i was using so i replaced it. when i turned it on the sound only came through the LEFT speaker. no clue whats going on. any help?

what kind of connection is it coming out of your phone? Can you hook up a pair of headphones to the phone to see if its the jack?

headphones work out of the phone jack so its not the phone. i dont know the technical term, but its just a regular headphone jack?

It sounds like the jack on your head unit has an issue. The contacts inside could be dirty, corroded or there could be a loose solder joint. You might have some luck with working the jack in and out of the head unit while rotating.
