Same old AUX input problem!!!

Hi all,

Just bought a 2005 Mini One HK...and trying to fit an AUX input to the head unit. Got the HK system so figured that was easier than swapping head unit etc BUT

Head unit wont acknowledge the Aux cable no matter what i try. Have googled for hours and read tons of threads most ending with nuclear physics instructions to wire in resistors and flux capacitors and whatnot...

Question is fellas (and ladies!) was there ever a definitive solution to this? Even if i bought an OEM cable people also report these dont work sometimes...

Rob...

thanks for the reply windy, im rapidly coming to the same conclusion...id be interested to know how many people took their into a main dealer and left the mechanics scratching their heads when it didnt work when there was no reason why it shouldnt!

Only way to make it work is to get one on eBay (BMW part) and then wire in the resistor and capacitor. Then it works very well.

Alternatively there are a couple of Bluetooth options on eBay that use the CD changer cradle. They also work well.

I've done both and settled on the £50 Bluetooth adapter as it gives more flexibility and does hands free calling.
