2006 X5 blinkers/radio do not work
I have a 2006 X-5 3.0 and my blinkers do not work and my radio turns on for 10 seconds and dies. The radio panel is black but I can still use the cell blue tooth.
My private BMW mechanic replaced the ignition switch but that did not fix anything. He thinks it's the radio, explaining that the electronics run through the radio, but that's a $900 item without the install costs. Has anyone had this problem before or have any thoughts if it could be something less expensive then the $1,400 to put in a new radio.
