Sound system not working
Hi all -

I have a BMW X5 3.0i with a standard radio/CD system (No GPS or anything). Anyway, it turns on and I can see everything on the display; however, the volume isn't working. I have tried increasing it via the knob as well as the steering wheel control. Please advise ASAP.

BTW it is a 2004 X5 3.0i, if that helps any. Thanks

Hello dkhan4,

I am suffering a similar type issue, but i do get the right side speakers working.
Out of interest, did your stereo just all of a sudden start doing this?
Or was it after any kind of work preformed on the vehicle?

Sounds like the amp?

Hi the problem your having is the dreaded bm54 the amp that can be found under the spare wheel . I to had this problem sound coming just out of the left side then it went altogether ,luckilyenough after some google homework and eBay found a guy just round the corner from me who replaced the inside circuit board and added a auxiliary lead aswell for 99 BMW want around 500 for a new one.
