Not all USB cables will work with all cars. If you're having trouble connecting to Android Auto, try using a new USB cable.
 
Here are some tips to finding the best USB cable to use with Android Auto:
  • Use a cable that's under 6ft long and avoid using cable extensions.
  • Make sure your cable has the USB icon .
If Android Auto has stopped working in your compatible car:
  • Try replacing your USB cable - that fixes the issue in most cases!

Thanks- the cable im sure is not the problem as I tried multipe ones and bought a new cable under three feet for USBC to the phone and same results-charges only but no data transfer or access.  I believe there is some permissions issue preventing access.

I use the following cable in my car. Very high quality cable and works very well. 
Brand name: Belkin
Model number: F2CU029bt1M-BLK
Link: https://www.amazon.in/dp/B00WJSPB5A/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_GOISCbJWHD0TQ

I bought it from Amazon India and I'm very happy with the cable. I think you guys can add this name to the above list too.

My AA has worked only 3 times after multiple tries with several different cables. The times it has worked was using a 1$ USB cable purchased at a Dollar Tree store!  I have even purchased USB cables from Verizon and LG that is recommended for my phone. My Subaru dealer says to use a flat versus a round USB cord? Still trying to find a solution.

I changed to a shorter cable, and it worked. It's a standard cable that came with a portable battery.
