Why wont music play to a speaker through aux but it will work through headphones?

I've connected my xperia xz1 compact to to my car through the aux port but music just plays through the handset. Same problem with my jbl speaker.

Works fine here.

No problems, tested with aux in car, different models of mobile speakers.

The handset speaker should mute when you plug in the aux cable. If it isn't then it probably isn't recognising the cable is plugged in - have you tried a different aux cable (assuming you're using the same one for the speaker and in car)?
