Ahhhhh, that makes perfect sense ND40oz!

My last X6 ('09) came with this cable and I just kept it assuming it was the same cord still. I see after a little bit of searching that like you said, the old y-cable is no longer used on the newer CIC. This should solve this problem that made no sense to begin with. I will verify in the AM, although I have full confidence this is the solution. Thanks for the info!
