AUX Mode INOP

I have a 2003 BMW e46 with an ALPINE RD1BE850 Navigation Headunit. It has the aux cable plug on the factory wiring harness. It is a 3 wire plug (Blk, Yel, Tan). I purchased the AUX cable and installed it according to the directions but, now my headunit no longer displays AUX as an option in the mode select menu. Can anyone give some suggestions where to proceed?

Original AUX cable have some Capacitors and Resistor built in. Without these the headunit won't allow you to connect to AUX input.
