7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Aux problems

Hi all, in need of some help. I'm trying to find an aux cable or aux device to connect not only my phone, but also any audio device. All cables point to using ipods, which I dont need. I just want to plug and play.
Most of the posts that I've read, suggest to plug in the aux cable to the back right of the cd ask unit. On my cd ask it already has that occupied. On disconnecting it, the subs underneath the seats turn off.
There is no advice about the left point being used for my model.
Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

1'st of all there is a sticky topic above your post with lots of info regarding Aux ...
2'nd we need a lot more info if you expect some help . Info about your car
would help . year , model , mods or retrofits you have done ? What is the
current condition & functions of your sounds in your car now ? L7 or no L7 ?
If you had done some research or even used the SEARCH FEATURE in this
section you would have known that we need more info than you have provided ,
& you would know that it is not as simple as plugging a wire in behind your Ask unit ...

Hi Paper,
Thanks for pointing that out. I have a 2003 E65 735i. I bought the car recently which is box standard. I've not made and changes to it. It does not have logic 7. From reading up information, the ask unit is s pre face lift model. Not sure if it helps, but it's an UK model.
I would like to point out as an additional, the left side speakers don't function. Moving the balance you can hear it muffled sound. I bought the fibre loop to diagnose which unit might fail, but I can't find any changes. If you need more information, please let me know.
Thanks

Did you go read the STICKY topic ???
& as for your Ask unit . it is going out ,
that is why 1 side is not working .
You need a Newer FaceLift 07 or 08 anyway .

I'm new to this, do I just type sticky in the search field?
For the ask unit, is there any place you recommend where I can pick one up for a decent price?
Thanks again
