is your clock working? If not, it might be a disconnected link in the glovebox for the fiber optics.

Navigation system doesn't work and disk won't eject

I have similar problem with my navigation. Come to find out there is a burned CD in the navigation drive which made it jam. Now the disk will not come out, it will keep trying to load the disk every 2 minutes and this interrupts the music every 2 minutes. All of the components are connected in the car, so if one component doesn't work none of them work.

I have a 02 745Li. My CD changer broke and my side mechanic installed/plugged in a $40 piece that bypassed the CD changer all together, which allowed all the other components (radio, navigation, single CD player, idrive) to start working again.


I am going to call him to see if he can use that piece to bypass the navigation. I do not know the name of the piece tho. It's not sold by BMW. I'm in Austin, Texas. Would leave his website but do not know if he wants the public to know he installs this piece.

It's a fiber optic loop.....same part that you have in the glove compartment. I haven't seen that part non OEM. As far as I know you can only buy it from BMW. I have one sitting in my garage right now that I bought from BMW

No interest in selling it... It's about $40.. Buy it from the dealer

I just did these steps that I found in the forum.....and Radio, Nav, and CD started working.....

With idrive on the central window (the window with all the selections East West North South)

To access the Secret Menu:

1. Push down i-Drive knob for approx 8 sec and release (nothing will happen so don't wait for such)
2. Turn right 3 clicks
3. Turn left 3 clicks
4. Turn right 1 click
5. Turn left 1 click
6. Turn right 1 click
7. Push down i-Drive knob

Good luck!
