Mein Auto: 2001 525i
2001 525i No FM Reception/ Keyless entry PICS INCLUDED

Recently bought a used 2001 525i (My first BMW) No FM reception, AM works fine & so does the CD player. Keyless entry remote batteries replaced & I also did the reprogramming procedure. Also replaced each & every fuse.

I will attach a picture of what is behind the housing panel in my trunk.
(Maybe parts are missing?)

Any help will be appreciated.

look behind the radio...make sure the antenna is plugged in.....also look on the rear of the car...on the upper corners of the back window...if you remove the c pillar covers youll see some boxes ... with wires attrached to the wondow...these are not window defrosters,,they are part of the fm reception amplifier setup.... on mine they were torn cuz the previous owner damaged them,,,i was lucky enough to resolder the wires back on... they could be torn or just went capoot
