Selecting the Aux Input in 2007 X3

Hello All,

I am new to a BMW, In my 2007 X3, I have an Aux port at the back of arm-rest but am not able to select it using the mode button on the stereo panel. Any suggestions to fix this.

Thanks

Sk

Welcome.

Sounds like this was a factory install of AUX IN for a 2007 model, and you have the standard BMW Business CD.

If when you press the Mode button it only cycles between the radio and CD (e.g. "no disc") with no appearance of AUX, I would guess that a previous owner has somehow disconnected the aux. cable.

You could search for posts on how to remove the radio (easily done), check the connection there, and if it looks O.K., use a multimeter to check for continuity of the cable.

Did you ever source the problem? I'm also experiencing a similar situation with installing the BMW "aux audio in kit" and no "aux" when pressing mode after the cable is connected...
