Guys, question for the DIY AUX cable

Hello guys,

I tried to make an AUX cable today, but it does not work.

I checked the cable made by myself, I think the cable is fine, I wonder if I need sofeware to support or update some system of my car?

After connecting to the CD plug, I cann't find the AUX in the LED plate.

I took some pictures:

I did this cable thing on Saturday with some measure of success, there was no software updates or anything, just plug and play. Perhaps you have it on the wrong pins? Or your CD player is the wrong version
