    Hey my key is not working remotely for anything and radio reception is bad. I checked my diversity antenna and it looks good. Also checked some of the wires but nothing obvious. Is there one antenna wire I should trace all the way or which one is most likely damaged?
  2. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    My 2006 530xi wagon has a lot of static in the fm reception. When I get closer to a strong station it clears up; or when I shut off the engine the static clears up. Could this be a noise filter? I've checked the diversity antenna module and it looks tight, dry and clean.
  3. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    My 2006 E61 with 120K miles has bad radio reception: weak signals and static. I opened the diversity antenna tray and there are two antenna plugs: one gray and one black. Only one connector. The black one is connected. What's the gray one? Can I try connecting it to see if it solves the bad...
  4. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi guys, I just bought a single DIN Pioneer DEH S5250BT for my 1990 sedan. Now, I'm looking to fix my power antenna (not working currently) and I'm told that the auto antenna can be paired with aftermarket headunit. So here's my question. From what I read, power antenna has 3 wires (ground...
  5. G30 (2017 - Current)
    Any wisdom on CB antennas with the G30? I have a Wilson 1000 magnetic mount, but no go on ferrous abundance for mounting. Wife's 540, so I don't think I can get away with a permanent mount. Pairing with a Connex CX3300 HP (it has nice legs). My E39 M5 "needs" CB coverage, so I have grown...
  6. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hello Everyone! I'm trying to replace my antenna base on my Z3M. I did a search on the forum under "antenna" and I couldn't find what I was looking for. I think I'll need to remove the hydraulic pump for the soft top to get to the antenna base. Does anyone know which bolts have to be undone for...
  7. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hi all, Both of my key fobs stopped working at about the same time. I have been manually opening and locking the door with the key and as my 2011 bmw x3 does not have an ignition, I have been holding the fob to the steering wheel to get it started. I took it to BMW to see if they could fix my...
  8. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I have 2 keys now not working on my 04 X5. I have sent one to Scott, who said it worked and returned it. Since the interior dome light works, he also said that it wasnt a GM3 problem. Fuses are OK. I decided to open up the rear inside upper hatch panel and uncover the FVZ antenna module. I...
  9. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've searched the threads and haven't found the answer I was looking for but this is what is going on. I also have a '01 x5 with the same issue. I have no sound from the radio but it is searching and finding stations. The cd player isn't reading cd's very often but when it does I do have...
  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a newish to me 2006 E61 and am trying to work my way into fixing some of its electrical gremlins. I get poor FM and AM reception that wobbles in and out, and no key remotes work. (replacement batteries are ordered, looks like both keys may be original) Carly calls it MASK Error in the...
  11. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I need to install a Sirius SXV300 Tuner in my 2007 M6 (E63). My vehicle has a BMW Sirius radio but I do not receive all of the channels in my subscription. Sirius support said I need to install a Sirius SXV300 Tuner. My M6 has no external antenna and I do not want to mount the magnetic...
  12. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    During the digital (HD) mode the radio echos during the transistion between HD and Non HD modes. The most popular explanation is "Multipath Distortion" . In simplest terms in means that the radio is processing multiple signals from one or more antennas depending on whether your car is equipped...
  13. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I attached a photo.... I have this connector just hanging around inside the back driver side wheel well, looks like an amplifier is there as well. Could this be why my trunk sensor thinks it's open? Or why my sattelite does not have a signal?
  14. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have a 2000 Z3 2.3 that, as far as I know, is not the sports M model. VIN is 4USCH9343YLG02584. The car has S658A business radio option. When I purchased the car, the entire antenna assembly was missing. I ordered a junkyard replacement, but the pre-amp body (65.21-8375-159) is too short...
  15. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Complete list of stock E39 antennas, where are they? (pic cellphone, radio, gps, key) The search that I ran for this rather ambiguous question today on antennas made me realize we don't have a comprehensive thread on BMW E39 antenna locations: > E39 (1997 - 2003) > Rear glass antenna...
  16. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    So, I went to go mess w/ my antenna bolt, and it's glue gave up and it just fell off. I then went to continue to see if the bolt would move on the assembly and it cracked about 5 separate times (felt very brittle, I'm assuming from age) . :mad::mad::mad: I have a couple of questions. How do I...
  17. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi, I have a 318 Touring 2008. Signals from my radio is bad. They can be "ok" when the car is standing still, but as soon as I start to drive I get interference and bad signal. Autosearch do not find any channels. I have replaced the diversity antenna amplifier located under the spoiler, as...
  18. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I hope I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel here. I just purchased a 2003 BMW 325i. The last owner (maybe) had replaced the Business Radio with an after market stereo and it's not getting any stations whatsoever. I have looked online and it appears that this model utilizes some kind of...
  19. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    car: 2011 528i F10 problem: very poor AM/FM radio reception. As in nearly not working. checked: dealer checked components with ISIS, all working. - no, the car has not had window tinting. - yes, the rear window defroster grids are intact. - no, the car has not been in an accident - yes...
  20. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I just picked up a 1998 Z3 with 148,000 miles on it. It's a fixer upper but it's not actually horrible. The radio's volume is burned out so you can't adjust it. It's too load with the top up or when I'm moving slow but almost right when I'm wiping down the highway. I bought a Kenwood radio and...
