Question Pinout for AUX connector on '03 radio?

After much digging, I've found that I can buy a $50 cable to connect to the AUX input on the back of my radio (w/single CD) and plug my iPod into the other end so I can hear it through the fairing speakers by selecting AUX on the radio. Woohoo!

But I'm real cheap, so I'd rather make my own cable. Does anyone have the pinouts for this 10-position connector on the lower right corner of the back of the radio? I was able to find a diagram at http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10472, but it shows the pinouts for everything BUT the AUX connector.

Where do you get the $50 cable?

IIRC, there is a thread on this site that gives the details you need. Someone made their own AUX cable for an '05 before we knew about the BMW-made version. A bit of searching should find it.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Wow! Another one of Ken's useful posts . . . unlike mine that are all rubbish!

I think the cable can be purchased at a BMW car dealer, as well as other online sources. The connector part # is 82 11 0 149 389, "Aux Input Cable BMW Radio.".

HERE's a good link if you want to install the pre-made cable route.


To roll your own cable/connector, THIS IS THE THREAD that you'd want to read.

Thanks for finding the link, Joe. BTW, if you had the link that the original poster was looking for, why didn't you just put it in your first post?

Footnote for future searchers: This Aux input can NOT be used with a VOICE II intercom, as the VOICE II uses this port on the radio chassis. It can be used with a ComSystem/Baehr, etc.

Re: Pinout for AUX connector on '03 radio?

I made a cable but discovered that the pin assignments given have what I believe is one error.
I discovered that pin 3 of the connector is Ground, not pin 4. I only rigged up the 2 audio input pins and 1 ground. If pin 7 had also been used for ground, then things would work. I ohmed out chassis ground to confirm pins 3 and 7 are indeed grounds.
The orientation of pin 1 on connector and pin assignments are horribly ambiguous. There is a BMW/Becker drawing that is linked somewhere on the LT website that shows pin 1 orientation that is simply wrong. Mark's photo shows a photo that barely shows the numbers 1,5,6,10 in the connector housing that are indeed correct. Not easy to make out unless the radio is pulled out and one stares down the rear connectors with good lighting. Just FYI Mark's photo #1 shows pin 1 in lower left and pin 5 in lower right.
As far as purchasing elaborate connectors, save your money and use a simple .1 inch x .1 inch connector. Same as what is used on thousands of "ribbon" connectors used on PC harddrives and other standard electronics for years.

It appears that the VoiceII has a similar connector between the 2 connectors that it uses. Does anyone know if this could be used to connect to instead of routing to the front plugs?
