AUX IN not working

Post by stevei » Thu Nov 09, 2017 7:40 pm

I tried the AUX socket for the first time today and the bloody thing doesn't work. I connected my phone up and selected AUX on the Idrive but all I got was a light crackling noise. You could hear the music very very faintly in the background.
I disconnected my phone and selected AUX again and could still hear the crackling noise even with nothing connected.

Any ideas lads?

Just for troubleshooting sake, try with a different AUX cable. And a different phone.
If neither works, you definitely know the AUX socket or some piece related to it is faulty.
