Radio faillure
 
:Hi All,

The radio goes out for a split second on my 6 series, and then it comes right back on. It looks like I'm losing current on my car, but only for a split second.
Anyone has experienced this problem or knows what it may be the cause of it?

Thanks in advance,

I had this it sound of pops goes off then comes back on, I did an Idrive reset which helped but never got to the bottom of it, but it was so rare I just ignored or tried to work out if it was in conjunction with something else switching on!!

Tried this many times, did not resolve the problem. Does the same when i am in the phone. Any other solutions? Also, how do i switch the passenger airbag dash light off?

It sounds like the CCC, if a 645 model, needs to be replaced and then coded in.

Thanks. What is ccc? Its a 650 convertible 2006 american spec and code in dubai. How much will this cost?

CCC is the Car Communications Computer. It's the same on 645/650 till '09 when the new CIC was released.

You need a BMW specialist to determine what modules/section needs to be replaced.

Most modules require programing so the car recognizes it.

On a 2006, you have a CID - this is the computer that controls all of the iDrive functions. Here is a BMW factory parts company listing for original equipment http://www.getbmwparts.com/parts/200...w=11&maxRow=10 After you install - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dx_VgXWop_w Then take the car over to your shop and let them code the new unit. Make sure that they have the optical interface / without it, they can not code. It's about 1.5 hours - the install is 20 minutes but remove your DVD and CD first ... if you can.

Had my CCC replaced last month. I had similar issues with my dash going blank.

If the Nav system & the Radio do this early every morning, I would say you have a bad or weak battery. I saw mine do this for months before I changed the battery. After changing the battery, I have not seen it happen since! :dunno: I would never suspect a bad battery to do this, but this is a BMW!

I had the battery replaced last year, but I know that the 6 ers are very tough on batteries. Now every time i loose the radio sound the dynamic drive control warning comes on. driving me nuts.

JDPSP 01-24-2013 02:05 PM

Never had an issue with the battery. Did you go with BMW battery? When was the last time you had the software updated?
