Mein Auto: 540i
1997 540i e39

When starting the car I get a loud squelching sound through the speakers.

I haven't owned the car that long and was wondering if there is a way to disable this audible blast.

I am assuming this may have something to do with the phone.

any help would be great, steve hudson ma

I havent heard of that issue before, but I'll leave it to a few of the resident audio experts.
I can remove, upgrade and replace them, but don't know much of their workings.
one thing we will need is the audio type
DSP or Non DSP?
the amp is different between the 2 and likely the cause.
