Stereo Issues with my 2002 745Li
I've recently started experiencing troubles with the stereo system in my 2002 745Li. At first every now and then there would be a loud static sound coming out of my speakers when I tried to play a cd or listen to the radio. At first it would just go away in time or by turning the radio system on and off. Then it would go hours or a whole day without working. I could start the car the very next day and everything would be back to normal for a day...maybe two, maybe 3 days. The problem would eventually reoccur.
Fast forward 2 months and now the entertainment/nav system is working, there is no static anymore, but NO sound is coming out of the speakers at all. Whether you try to play a cd or the radio. Every now and then you hear the intended station or cd for about a 1 second then nothing.
Has anyone experienced the same problem or anything close??? If so, are there any fixes that I can try on my own???
I took the car to a shop today and they told me that my amp seems to be bad and that it would cost $1,250 for a new amp and $200 for them to install and program.....a total of $1,450 to hear music again.
