BMW E65 Facelift ASK

Hi,

I bought a Facelift ASK and fitted it in my car

to my surprise Radio started working without any coding but the buttons on the front are not working

is it that the previous guy already coded this for a pre-facelift car for radio to work and coz of that the mode/AM/FM buttons not working?

is it possible to replace the front panel of a Pre-Facelift ASK with Facelift panel and cheat as a Facelift ASK ?

Also its not playing any MP3 disks....



Please suggest if I got cheated or thats how it will work after coding for a Pre-Facelift car ????

If you don't have the face lift MMI the AM/FM buttons will not work.

Also I don't believe it can play mp3 disks?

check to see if your rear PDC sensors are working
with this FaceLift Ask unit .

I've had my facelift ask and MMI in my car for a few months now and haven't been able to play any MP3 disks at all.

Theres no options for it in the coding for the ASK either that I saw at least.

I know (from what I've read only, no experience with it) that the DVD changer can play them, and I think the face lift CD changer can, but I'm unsure as to whether the ASK can.

It might be possible with a software update - I see your ASK is very early face lift, so is mine. I haven't checked to see if a newer software is available.

ok...thanks for that.....

have one offer for 100 euros (~130$) for facelift CD changer...you think it will be worth it or doing the tuner mod is more useful ?

I've not done the tuner mod myself as I don't currently intend to plug in an aux device - though now you have a facelift ASK you can get the standard aux lead that plugs into the back and adds it as a proper source I believe.

If you take the CD Changer it is a gamble, though it would be great to have a definitive answer as to whether it works!

What is the production date on it ?

Not trying to worry you , but someone might have put
a FaceLift front on a Non FaceLift ASk unit . I have seen it
done so the seller could get more money for the unit . I
have saw 2 Ask units like this before , Someone came by
with a 2007 so I could code & install it in there car cause
they couldn't get it to work , & I figured out what the problem
was when I hooked up the computer to it .

2'nd one was getting retro-fitted along with the MMI & AT Tuner
for Aux in a 2002 .

I have a facelift ASK in my 2002 car, and it works fine - though I did have to recode the line specifying the tuner as pre facelift.

As you stated you had to code it .
OP stated he has done no coding .
I guess it is possible it was previously
coded as a Non-FaceLift , but I doubt
it

yes, I didn't code it....but all are working as soon as I plugged in

will put my Facelift MMI to see if the buttons are working and I guess if they do, it could be a real Facelift ASK which was coded before

BTW the number on the ASK unit is pointing to only one ASK unit sold on ebay as a Facelift ASK, couldn't find it anywhere else on whole internet

what # are you referring to ? the sticker on the side or on top ?
by the pic you posted the top lid has been removed & put back
on , you can see the broken seal .

could it be due to ECE (europe region coding) compared to US coding?

Since your in Germany you should goto the dealer for it .
It is not plug & play , You need to make sure Aux is on
the MMI so you can select it for your Audio choice .

or purchase the 1 from your link ...

Good news.....

Just tested the ASK with Facelift MMI and the AM/FM buttons are working

but the MODE button is behaving weird...its switching off the existing mode (FM/AM/CDC) when i press it and after sometime FM is started...I dont care much about the MODE button though

So this means I have the facelift ASK right???

can I buy the AUX plug and simply can plug it to the ASK ? my MMI already shows the AUX menu as in the pic

now that is even more strange . if the Mode button is
doing that , then the PDC sensors should not be working .

As for Aux , what happens when you select it on the MMI ?

what do you mean hangs ???
does the Aux volume screen pop up ?


your Ask unit is definitely something I have
not come across . Your Mode issue but your
PDC sensors working is interesting . maybe
your Ask is partially coded or something else
is going on .
