Mein Auto: 528i
No sound coming from speakers

I have a 528i and after driving about 5 hours one day, the day after my radio stopped working. All the lights still come on and I can select between stations, tape player, and cd player, but absolutely no noise comes out of the speakers any ideas?

it just stopped working?
did you disconnect power or anything then it stopped?
did you check the amp for power? US e39s have an amp in the trunk which is probably your issue
do you have the DSP or non DSP system?
I have a diagram for non DSP systems if you need it.

It's a 98 528i, I drove it one day and it didn't work the next. I will check the amp to see if it has power, and I believe it is a non-dsp

use this site to find your production date:
http://www.bmwarchive.org/vin/bmw-vin-decoder.html

here is the wiring for the non-dsp system.
hope it helps. check the remote wire and amp power wire for power. it could be a fuse or your amp has shot craps.
the connections in to the amp are line level and will only provide a small signal to the amp which the amp splits in to 3 signals for the doors and 2 signals for the rear speakers (5.25 woofer in the rear and tweeter in the door).
there is a fuse in the trunk above the battery which is for the amplifier. check that. I believe it is a 10amp

This is your guide
