radio,cd, display screen, and idrive

i have an issue that i hope someone else has had. all 4 of these stopped working. the cd player, radio, display screen and i drive knob all stopped working. the idrive usually has some tension on it. it clicks when u turn it. now it just spins freely and the radio does not work cd player does not work and will not eject the disk. the display screen has now power. everything is dead. if i hit the dash or hit just below the screen it will come and and everything will work. sometimes for a few minutes sometimes longer and then while driving everything foes dead. i hit again harder and will come back on. then work for a bit and all goes dead again. now it seems to be really. dead. any idea what would cause all 4 of these to stop working??

if the ask is bad. can i still put a cd in and have it eject out? i did that 2-3 times. the disk never played and the screen did not turn on but i was able to put one in and it took it and i was able to eject it out. would this happen if the ask was bad??

ok so i unplugged the ask unit. today i start the car and the screen comes on. i can go into the climate settings and the radio area no presets or sound cause the ask is unplugged. nav area does not work. on the plug for the ask there is a little red light that blinks. i drive for 5 mins and the light stops blinking and the screen goes dead. i hit the dash and the vent area and it all comes back on for 30 seconds goes out again. does this sound like the display screen?? i dont think its the ask unit. what do u guys think??

.. if you unplug anything in the loop you break the loop and nothing will work right.. if you have no idea what i am referring to you should reAd up on how the e65/6 most bus fiber optic network operates. if your ask unit is no good, send it to a repair shop OR get a new one. last option out of all these but not least is to get a used one that works

Re: radio,cd, display screen, and idrive

I have already told you several times
You need a new Ask . Also some 1
Already anwered you & explained you
Are still breaking the most loop .

If you want to keep playing with your
System then atleast buy a loop from
The dealer & try it between everything
To come up with some results

we both told you what you have got to do bro. replace your ask unit or send it off to be repaired. there is no other way. there is no magical cure that will make it all work. these things are destined to fail from the factory.
