iPod won’t play through aux

Ok I got my car last Friday and as I wanted to listen to my music on my iPod I connected it the same as my old one series via a fire cable to the two plugs in the armrest. When I press the aux button on the head unit all it comes up with format on the screen. It worked perfectly in my bm and the wife’s Cooper S so not sure what the problem is.
All advice appreciated

Depends on the year of the car, pre facelift does not have usb/aux connected to the head unit, facelift cars try connecting to the usb socket in the armrest with one of these adaptors.

I remember when Honda wanted over £60 and that was why owners were removing them and selling them afterwards.

If it wasn't bolted down it got stripped out.

Same with the SatNav DVD.

So is the information from your iPod being recognised and displaying on the cars displays? Just no music.
When I connect my iPhone via USB cable I still use Bluetooth so I can make calls. The cable to charge, if I swap from Bluetooth to cable I get more info displayed but you can't pause the music as those controls disappear.
When I connect at any time after connection achieved I have to push up the volume on my iPhone. I did try a dual USB/HDMI cable but got nothing. Either bad cable (cheap China) or I was doing something wrong.
Have you selected the correct source on the car? It has a dedicated iPod choice. I'd try connecting pod with Bluetooth on then switch through the sources seeing if anything appears.
