Aux introduced from 09/2006 build. If your vehicle was built before that date then you may not have the option.

Update the ASK and do the FA edit to #0906

Paper (or anyone else),
i need some help with this.
i followed Paper's instructions but i can't seem to get it to work.
1. i changed the aux parameter to aktive in the MMIGT module so now when i go to the entertainment list i see a white AUX option
2. i bought the cable and rewired it just like Paper suggested (2 right, 7 left, 8 ground)
3. i took out the ASK but then i saw that there is another cable in the spot where the aux cable is suppose to go?
4. i took out that cable and connected the aux cable instead
i turned on the ASK unit. AM/FM works fine. i connected my iphone to the aux cable and played a song but when i switch to aux nothing happens. it just sits at aux with no sound. aux does not turn to orange like when other options are selected. it stays white and no sounds is heard.

what is the cable that was connected in the aux spot??
what am i doing wrong?
please help

Well 1'st you should fix all the problems
you have been having with your Ask Unit, &
The other equipment you have been mentioning
in your other post , before you try
installing new features to your car .

2nd does the volume line pop up on the
MmI when in auxiliary mode after you press
it 2xs ???


Edit =
You should trace the plug that is
already plugged into your Ask Unit to
see what it leads you to . It might just
be you already have aux in your car .
( maybe look in your center console to
check for the stock aux )

Also you might want to reset your MMI back
to factory settings since you messed it up
by playing with it , & changing features on
It .

Dang Paper, thanks for doing this DIY. SO much hostility in your video LOL. I know why, its just funny. Sorry. Based on your thread and videos it looks like I am going to need a new ASK AND new MMI to get this in my 2002. Thanks. I will be looking to purchase these upgrades soon. Let me know if you come across one. Im in Riverside.

the volume line does not pop up when i presss the aux 2 times or a few times. it stays white which tells me the ASK is not switching to aux.

the plug that is in the aux spot goes back to the same thick cable that comes from the other ASK plug (the main plug). they combine into one thick wrap which tells me it was done in the factory? but how can that be?
i checked the center console and the glove box but no aux plug. my car is 01/06 E65 so i dont think the aux was availble from the factory on that model

how do i change the mmi back to factory settings? the only thing i changed in it (other than the aux parameter) is the legal disclaimer time out.

i saw posts of people that enabled the aux on pre facelift ASK so it should work on mine as well (post facelift)

I don't remember if it was in your PM or another post you made , But
you stated you did some coding in your MMI . I think you might have
changed some settings in there by accident , Maybe you put a blank space
someplace & didn't notice it . Or maybe you did something else when you coded
that affects the things on your ASK Unit that are not working . 1 wrong
thing you might have accidentally done could be affecting the Aux volume
& the mode button you claimed stopped working , along with your other
issue's .

Well I would unwrap the plug & try to follow it , But it's your car & that
would be your decision to make . How many wires are on the plug that
was in the Aux spot ??? could you maybe take some pic's with your phone
& post them up so I can see the plug your talking about ???

As for resetting your MMI back to factory . You will have to use NCS
again , but this time use expert mode to read & then code the MMI

as for Pre-facelift Ask unit working with Aux (almost 110% positive it's not possible )
what you saw is an Ask unit that they changed the front face of
( basically they changed the front from a facelift front to a
pre-facelift front on the Ask unit )

I did this for some 1 that did not want to spend the money on
the wood trim needed for the FaceLift Ask unit ,
I also changed the A/C control front cause he didn't want to
buy the newer FaceLift key or CD plastic section .

the plug that is in the aux spot has 5 wires (see attached pictures). the wires are connected to spots 1,3,4,9,10.
i tried to change the pins on the new cable to 3,4,10 as in the E39 but the result was the same (aux does not turn orange and no sound is heard when played from my iphone).
i think the issue is with the ASK unit but i still cant figure out what is that cable that is connected to the aux spot??

Paper, I think it was in one of your videos that you describe the POST facelift ASK has buttons on it and the Old ASK unit does not... Here is a pic of my ask unit. Has buttons on it??

Nope, the facelift ask will have a mode button and fm/am buttons on it. You also need to make sure the manufacture date is after a certain time.

Any reference I made regarding buttons , I stated that the FaceLift Ask Unit has the
Mode , FM & AM buttons , & the Pre-FaceLift does not .

Anyone knows what is that cable that is connected to the back of my ASK unit in the spot where the aux cable is supposed to go?
(it is a post face lift ask with mode and am/fm buttons)

So if you had the mode button on the ask you should be able to add the AUX cable.

not necessarily. i have a post face lift ASK with the mode button and the aux cable wont work because it is 03/06 ASK model. people say you need an ASK that is 09/06 or later but i have not been able to verify that because i have seen forums where people connected the aux cable to pre face lift units

OK FOR THE 3RD TIME !!!

as for Pre-facelift Ask unit working with Aux (almost 110% positive it's not possible )
what you saw is an Ask unit that they changed the front face of
( basically they changed the front from a facelift front to a
pre-facelift front on the Ask unit )


I did this for some 1 that did not want to spend the money on

I also changed the A/C control front cause he didn't want to
buy the newer FaceLift key or CD plastic section .
