Mein Auto: 328i
Sound from radio going only to right sided speakers

Hi all:

I have a quick question regarding the stereo in my '13 328i, and a quick forum search didn't turn up much.

I've had the car since Thanksgiving, but didn't drive it regularly until the past 2 days. I immediately noticed that the radio is only sending sound to the speakers on the right side of the car. If I go into tone control and turn the balance all the way to the left, there would be no sound at all. This is the case with all the local FM stations I tried.

When I got home, I popped in an audio CD, which is sending sound into speakers on both sides of the car. Both balance and fade work just fine.

So do you think there's an issue with the radio unit, or do I have some setting that's messed up? FM is usually in stereo, so I was thinking if maybe the car is set in some sort of "mono" mode and is sending all the signal to one side, but I didn't see any such setting or option in the audio menus in idrive.

Anyone else have a similar issue or any advice?

Thanks in advance!
