Pandora won't play through car speakers via USB?

I currently drive a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu LT and I usually play Pandora on my iPhone via the USB out which is included in the sound systems inside the Malibu models. For a while everything played perfectly, but not it does not. When I plug it in, my car recognizes that it is plugged in and the name of the Artist and song appear on the sound system like normal. However, it only plays through the speakers on my phone. What is the problem? Should I get a different connection other than USB?

I had the same problem with my car stereo, the iphone cable had went bad.

Hello Mr. T,

I apologize that you are experiencing an issue with your Chevrolet Malibu not playing your music through your speakers in your vehicle. I would suggest taking your vehicle to the dealership to see if they would be able to diagnose what is causing this to happen. I would like to assist you in working with the dealership as well, if that is the route you would like to go. I would need your name, contact info, VIN, mileage, and dealership you would like to work with. When you send your email, please include “ATTN GREG” in the subject line so that it gets delivered straight to me. Thank you very much for your time.
