BMW aux cable doesnt work...???

Hi There
I have a 2003 M3 (6/2003 build date) - no NAV.
I bought the AUX kit from the dealer today p/n: 82 11 0 149 389.

I plugged it in the back of my factory h/u and connected the aux cable to my phone (with pandora playing) and nothing. i click the mode button a many times, it goes from radio to cd changer to cd player and back to radio. Doesnt goto AUX.

Did i buy the wrong cable? or it just doesnt work on my car?

I did some research before buying the cable and some said the h/u needed software 43 up, and mine is 40. And some say if i have the mode button and the slot in the back of the radio, it will work.

Any ideas? If it wont work, i'll try to return the cable, or just resell it.

Thanks
Franklin
