Radio readiness no longer working

Hi guys

I have a 2008 X5 E70 and recently (after some mechanical repair, cough 'turbo' cough) seems to have an issue with the radio.

When the ignition is on or the engine is on, the radio works fine, with the exception that it is 'muted' on entry. However, when I switch the engine off and keep the key in, or just put the key in without starting, the radio does not work !

The blank 'BMW' scree is on and after a couple minutes the battery warning light comes up on the dash.

As you can see on the photo I have an android system installed, that works fine just with the key in.

I know it's not a biggie but I don't mind listening to the radio when waiting for an hour at kids sports etc...

Anyone an idea or had a similar issue?

Thanks in advance.

Nothing unusual. Itís part of battery life management.

It should keep going for longer than on hour though. Your battery may be at or near end of life. On a good battery it seems you get 10 or 15 minutes.

Thanks guys.

Update: This morning, the radio works with only the key in, without ignition. Seems the problem has fixed itself...
