Mein Auto: Bmw 740i
My girlfriend broke my stereo

So the center console where the telephone used to be, it slides back and forth. She was excessively sliding back and forth when all of a sudden my stereo stopped playing. The power is good except for the stereo. I can't even click the button to see stations or anything. Help me! Is there wires that were disconnected under that center console. I just bought this car recently. It's a 1995 740i. Help. I have no music.

Pull the arm rest thingy off and check. Real easy to do. Look for directions at e38.org

Radio is muted by the phone. I would guess that the 'mute' command/wire is permanently signalling the radio (ie the radio thinks you are on the phone).
Tricky fix unless you find obvious damage. Fix car - change girlfriend for one with more car sympathy.
