Radio Trouble

I turned my 2001, 325i on yesterday and suddenly the radio does not work. The time is not displayed. All the lights around the radio and clock dash are on and the AC controls work. I thought it was a fuse, but not the case. I'm thinking of removing the face plate from the dash and trying to remove the radio to see if anything came loose. Anyone have problem before? Any suggestions?

Chances are your radio bit the dust. Try disconnecting the battery for about 20 minutes and then reconnect.

The radios are easy to take out, and there is a fuse on the back of the radio, so check that.

If all that comes out good, there are plenty of affordable used radios on ebay. There are also scam artists, so be careful.
