2007 ipod plug?

I have a 2007 with the Bluetooth and it has an iPod plug in the glove compartment. The plug works to play music through the radio but it does not charge the iPod, I tried it on both an original old iPod and on a newer 4th generation touch and it plays the music but does not charge either. Is it supposed to charge?

Have you ever charged your iPod through the earphone jack before?

Why do you ask about charging through an earphone jack I said there is an ipod plug in the glove compartment. You know the standard 30 pin connector for ipods.

lol some people can be cruel. maybe your ipod isnt supported, the usb jack should charge it but maybe only certain devices. not 100% i know my iPhone charges on it. I would say ditch the cord tho and go on amazon and order the yDrive cable. it plugs into both the usb and the aux cable on your center console then into your ipod. a lot better clarity from the radio with this cable. only costs about 25 bucks shipped.
