Radio cuts out!

Hi, just joined the forum and looking for advise. I have a 2015 4 series Coupe F32. My issue is that with engine running and radio on, if I turn on the interior light in the car, the radio says no signal and goes off. Likewise if the door is opened triggering the interior light... Radio goes off. This only happens when listening to DAB radio stations, if I select FM radio the problem doesn't happen. Also if I press the smaller map light it doesn't happen only the main interior light? Very strange. Has anyone else experienced similar issues???

From the lack of response, I'm guessing I'm on my own with this one!

Many Bimmerfest members are in USA where dab is not found.

Is the interior light an led or incandescant bulb? Any flickering when on?

Is the led bulb replaceable? If so try that. Otherwise it's time for a dealer or good BMW mechanic to start some analysis.

It's booked in for a service next week, so will see what they say, it's annoying, but I can live with it... Thanks for all responses.

Ok. Please update this thread after they take a look. I am interested in finding out what the connection is.
