    I have the iPhone 5.

    Whenever I enter my car, itunes automatically starts playing through my car's speakers. What's amazing is that the music application will start playing even if it's not OPEN!

    How can I fix this?!?!?!

    It's nothing to do with your iphone it's generally an option on your stereo settings.

    Most iPod/iPhone compatible devices automatically default to playing your music library unless you tell it otherwise and iTunes doesn't have to be open for that. Simply double-click the Home button from your lock screen, and you will get a music player.

    Look around in the menus and the user's guide, and see if you have setting called "iPod Mode" or "Head Mode" or something similar. In my car, I can set the default to "head mode" which means that the radio only charges my iPhone, and I have to pick an app to open.

    I drive a Ford Fusion 2010 with Sync, and my iPhone starts as soon as the car starts. It's just become a habit for me to press Stop on whatever is playing.

    I can't find anywhere that prevents this.

    x3 with

    2010 Fusion Sport with Sony Sight/Sound, Navi and Sync and it begins to play music. Always has even with iOS 5.x All steering wheel and in Dash touch screen functions still work. Didn't lose anything with the update. Must be vehicle compatibility based.

    It's probably similar to when you put an iPhone on a dock, it starts playing. So the Music app is probably programmed to start playing when it's connected to an audio device.
