Maybe when you press mode it is trying to select the AUX, which is not installed so it does something strange?

your Ask unit is not communicating with the AT Tuner
correctly . That's why your having problems with the
Mode button .

Try to go into manual station select &
try to select a station to set to one of
your Presets & tell me what happens .



& I'm sorry for the late reply , I have been really busy lately ...

Today that AUX plug has arrived but the AUX is still not working...is it anything to do with my ASK being manufactured in July 2005 ?

I think I know why.

That is a CD based ASK unit and either your MMI or ASK (which would be silly) is coded for Mini Disk (MD)

When you press mode it tries to switch to Mini Disk as its the first source other than radio tuner, but it doesn't exist so it hangs.

Oh.... Could be... Do you know if I can recode the MMI back to CD?

You can very easily if you have the kit. It would take a few seconds for someone that knows what they're doing.

Have you used NCS Expert before?

You just need to go into the coding file for the MMI and change any reference to MD / minidisk to nicht_aktiv and any reference to CD to aktiv

If you have NCS Dummy installed that will tell you the exact name of the options but im pretty sure its just MD and CD.

The only thing to note if your doing this on your facelift MMI you need to change the build date on NCS Expert's Vehicle Order so you can read / write to it which is a bit of a pain.

Hey guys, I'm having a little problem with Face-lift Ask unit.

I installed the face-lift unit in my 05 745 and neither the radio or the cd are playing?? And while the face-lift ask is connect the car suddenly shuts off...I installed my original pre-face-lift and it everything(radio, cd) works fine and the car doesn't shut off.

And btw I don't have a face-lift mmi and pdc is not working could that be the case?
