Radio decides to work whenever it feels like it

My radio works whenever it feels like it. I turn my car on and it works next day I turn it on and it doesn't. Any idea what this could be?

Do a search for amp dying and see if the symptoms/issues you see are what you're experiencing. The e38/e39/e53 all use the same amps (regular or DSP amp)...so you have at least 3 different BMW model forums to search from to see if this is your issue.

I'd also recommend using google search engine...just type "BMW e38 radio not working" into a google search box (also try inserting e39 and e53 for more results). Again, this is one of the common maladies that afflicts all 3 of these models...so you have a lot of past threads (from 1995-2006) to check if this is your issue to.

Good luck.
