    Presumably/hopefully you've hooked an amp up to them. They are live all the time so there's nothing in the menu's to switch them on/off.
    Need a bit more info on what you've done as usually they just work. Remember you need to hook up power to the amp seperately then hook up the remote on trigger to the pre-out adapter to switch the amp on/off with the HU.

    They're Pre-outs not inputs. In order to hook up an MP3 player you need to use an adapter that plugs into the CD changer port on the HU. The adapter has some electronics in it that fools the HU into thinking it has a changer connected, and then uses the RCA input that's part of the changer input.
