No cool air. Thermostat AUX light turned on
I suggest you call a qualified service repair man. There are as many ways to connect a heat pump as there are people doing them. Nothing is standard industry wide that has anything to do directly with color codes, so it would be meaningless to go into them here. The terminals may be adapted to standard but but the thermostat manufacturer may not follow any terminal designations.
However you may just have an extra wire touching one of the terminals inside the thermostat. You can check this by removing the cover. Look where the wires attach to the terminal screws on the thermostat. Sometimes a new service person cuts the insulation back too far here or in the outdoor or indoor units and a "whisker" from one wire can touch the other terminals. A whisker is not the normal case try and move it away from another terminal if its is touching there. However, you may have jumpers in place especially if you have W, W1, W2... at any of the 3 sections, meaning the outdoor, indoor and thermostat.
If you can tell me the terminal designations R,Y, W1, W2, E, G, O, (B)... at the thermostat and the color thereon each, then at the indoor unit terminals or wire designations and the color there, then
at the outdoor unit and the color thereon each terminal or wire designation there. I might be able to help if
the above whisker check you don't find anything.:
