04 745i AMP/radio problem


Just Purchased my 04 745i as a 1st car.
Having problems with the audio, someone please help..

Radio works sometimes,
when it doesnt work the display views FM/AM etc. however the channels do not show up.
When the radio does work or even when it doesnt the speakers give off a cracking snapping noise, sounds like loose wiring but I checked everything and nothing is lose. I sent the vehicle out to a ''PROFFESIONAL DIAGNOSTIC GUY'' and what he told me is he is not sure what the problem is however he will need to start with a radio, new radio lists for over $850 and then he said I might even need an amp which lists for over $900. plus the programming which will cost me another $3-400. I would appreciate it if one of you BMW techs can help me solve my problem. thanks.

Your professional guy should use the GT-1 to perform a MOST-Bus diagnosis to find out what the cause is for the interruption.The test plan would have revealed the probable causes by way of determination.If the test plan reveals 2 or more modules are causing it,he simply could have "jumped" the fiber optics on the modules listed to see if operation resumes and move on to the next "probability".An educated guess is one thing,an educated technician is another.

Do you have any other problems with the sound output ? In saying that I meant, Does the CD Changer operates with sound output ? Does the NAV give you voice instructions ? Does it chime when the key is just on and not running ? Basically,are all your SOUND outputs inoperative ?
We need to determine what works and what doesn't.We can isolate possibilities and eliminate them one by one,thus the need for more information.If you can,borrow a MOST bus "jumper" from another car.This is located in the glovebox,looking in it's on the top panel with a "door".You cant miss it,that's the MOST bus connection for the OPS.(Pin 1 is incoming,2 is out) You can try to "reset" the MOST by turning the key on and disconnecting/reconnecting the jumper plug.The reason why I asked you to "borrow" or "buy" one of these ( 61 13 6 917 541) is so you can use it to bypass the module you suspect to be faulty.You will simply unplug the 2 Pin MOST bus connector from the module and plug in the jumper to see if MOST communications resume.In the left side of the trunk area,behind all the panels you would need to remove.There lies the LOGIC 7,TEL,NAV,and SVS (speech/voice command) modules.
The AVT (Antenna Tuner) is a possibility to your problem.The tuner is actually a control unit with a MOST port and is placed in the rear left C pillar. Due to the direct connection of the antenna diversity,no antenna amplifier is needed on the left-hand side.On the right hand side, there is an antenna amplifier which is linked via a coaxial cable to the diversity unit. The tuner provides the power supply to the antenna diversity and the antenna amplifier.
The ASK (in dash CD-Player) is the MOST network controller.This is the module responsible for PDC acoustics,check control warnings and gongs,and medium-range loudspeakers and tweeters are directly controlled by the ASK.

Brief audio failures

These failures are followed by a magazine check from the CD changer and the sound returns.
1. Stationary or On engine start
The cause is the CD changer or a poor state of charge of the battery.
2. As of terminal 15
The cause is the CD changer.

The stored radio station lists are lost here.
The cause is the antenna tuner.
These audio failures occur in the radio mode, do not occur in other audio sources, and
otherwise the communication systems work normally.
The cause is probably the antenna tuner.

Sustained noise from the loudspeakers

These noises only come from the front door loudspeakers or from the back shelf.
The ASK supplies the front door loudspeakers and the back shelf. Noises from these loudspeaker can also originate from other audio control modules (telephone, navigation system, etc.). Bridging (jumper) these audio control modules can pinpoint the fault.
These noises only come from the central loudspeaker at the front, from the woofers under the seats or from the rear door loudspeakers.
The cause is the amplifier (Top-Hi-fi).
These noises only occur in the radio mode, not with other audio sources.
The cause is the antenna tuner.

All sounds are inop including the park assist, this only happens sometimes , well most of the time.. Have any idea what It might be now? Another thing that may help you eliminate some is only FM AM WB and TONE are highlighted, the CD and CD changer on the screen are faded and only work when my tuner works.it does not chime when inserting the key in. The navigation is giving me a blank screen. When I first purchased it I realized the navi disc was out so while trying to insert it the unit would not take it in, waited a few days and today it took in the cd however I am getting a blank screen when coming to the navi. Please help me before sending it to the dealer, is there any other possible way I can check it . Thanks a lot bmw tech. Apprectiate it.

Also sometimes the roller that controls the audio loosens up and does not respond to my hand movements, and sometimes when first turning on the vehicle on the display screen it shows KOMMUNICATION, Ent. Etc. In different spelling before having to click ACCEPT, after hitting accept everything adjusts but still no sounds. Sometimes and all the time when it does work speakers crack and snap.

MOST jumper

Hey BMW_tech,

Today my battery completely drained so I purchased a new one with hopes that the snapping sound from my speakers would go away. It didn't! Since installing the new battery, I noticed that the control panel display (and radio) would not turn off after I completely removed the key. This is probably what drained my battery! I located the MOST bus in the glove box that you mentioned in an earlier post and I unplugged it. I noticed that only one pin emitted a red light and the other side did not. Is this normal? After a few seconds, the control panel display and radio finally went off so I replugged the MOST bus. Please help....

hope this helps someone, got it from alldata, let me know if it works

SI B65 15 11
Audio, Navigation, Monitors, Alarms, SRS

September 2011
Technical Service

SUBJECT
CIC-HDD: Audio Output Has Dropouts or Distortions During Playback

MODEL
All models with option 609, (Navigation System Professional, CIC)

SITUATION
When a CD or DVD is inserted into the Car Information Computer (CIC) internal DVD drive, the audio output can have dropouts or distortions during playback.

INFORMATION

These audio output dropouts and/or distortions only occur if the inserted CD or DVD was already copied onto the CIC internal Hard Disc Drive (HDD) and when this CD or DVD has copy protection.

IMPORTANT:
As soon as a copy-protected CD or DVD was copied onto the HDD, the audio output dropouts and/or distortions also occur without a CD or DVD being inserted into the CIC internal DVD drive!

CAUSE

The CIC internal HDD recognizes the inserted CD or DVD as already copied onto the HDD and will play the music from the HDD database and not from the CD or DVD.

Therefore the music data copied from the copy protected CD or DVD onto the HDD can be corrupted and cause the audio output dropouts and/or distortions during playback.

Note:
CDs or DVDs that are played back in the CIC internal DVD drive but are not copied onto the HDD do not show this behavior.

CORRECTION
Do not replace parts and do not perform any repair attempt!

This is normal operation of the entertainment system.

Delete the music data stored on the CIC internal HDD and play the music directly from the CD or DVD inserted into the CIC internal DVD drive.

Please explain the behavior of the entertainment system to the customer.

This Service Information bulletin provides technical and diagnostic information only.

anyone still working on this issue?

I have the GT1 software for bmw and i seem to be experiencing an intermittent issue, sometimes it works fine sometimes it doesnt, GT1 says no communication possible with the "top hi-fi amplifier" it says to check fuses and lines. i have not checked fuses yet but i will be working on it, my biggest worry is that it could be a fiber optic line, for i do not have any means to test fiber optics, any advice or hints would be helpful

Im having a similar problem. I have a 2004 745i. I was driving with the music on just yesterday, all of a sudden i heard a beep and and my speakers started giving off a cracking/snapping noise. I tried to turn the radio off by pushing the volume button but it wouldn't turn off. Eventually, i succeeded in turning it off. Once i came to a stop, i switched the car off and took out the key....however, the control display would not turn off. I also noticed that my navigation is not working properly as well....sometimes i get a black screen, and other times the screen blinks. Not sure if anyone can help, but please give me any suggestions that might allieve my situation. Adam745- if u found a solution to your problem, please let me know how u were able to do so. Thanks in advance.

I've had my car for two(2) months without no radio or navigation, So any help would be deeply appreciated.
I would love to find out if someone ever found out the solution to this problem as well. I'm having the same problems to the "T" with my 2004 BMW 745Li -

The cracking sound with the in and out volume is killing me. To add, now the engine light is on. I unplugged the battery and things got worse just like what was stated in the previous blogs. Now the screen will not turn off and no SVC voice and I get a Fault error with the picture of a red battery with I first turn on the car and drive for 5 minutes then it goes away.

Mein Auto: 2004 Black on Black 745Li
My amp just went out...again. I had a new one installed by a member here a couple months ago. It worked fine since then but now it makes some low modulating noise, and the bass is all gone. Last time my amp went out, all the Logic 7 settings in the idrive were greyed out and couldn't be adjusted. This time I can still adjust the settings. Could it just need to be programmed by the dealer, or should I get a new amp...again? I don't think it is a coding problem, because it worked for all those months.

Kinda weary of buying an amp from ebay...might not work... and all the ones there say all sales final. Go figure. At least the dealer will give me a 2 year warranty on the amp from them.
