    I swapped the display on my instrument cluster with ease. I was missing a few orange text dots on my Radio’s MID so I bought a new display for it to exchange. Regardless how many times I reseat the ribbon to the MID board it looks exactly like this picture. It l leads me to believe that the MID...
  2. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    New to me Z3 2001 w/ AM/FM Cassette Business Radio. The reception is lousy. If I play audio from my phone thru a bluetooth adaptor the sound is good (given the dinky speakers). Radio reception is lousy with only the main local FM stations coming in, forget about AM. I think I have the standard...
  3. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    When I originally purchased my 1993 BMW 535i it came with an aftermarket radio that sucked, absolutely destroying the bass past a certain volume, it also was super ugly. I saw a very interesting YouTube video were Simeone transplanted a Bluetooth chip into an oem radio while keeping all other...

  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hello! So I have an E39 523i from 2000, and while there are many problems with it, this one is perhaps the most annoying one. A few weeks ago I bought an FM Transmitter that I could use to play music with via my phone, but when I paired the stations, I could only hear the music for like 2 or 3...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've had sound issues with my 01 530i touring since i purchased it back in dec last year. When i turn on the car, the radio plays only through the rear speakers in the boot for anywhere between 1 - 10 seconds before all sound cuts out. My setup is the 16:9 unit with nav, cd changer, no dsp, no...
  9. 6 Series
    Hi Internet. I have a persistent issue with my BMW 650i Convertible (but I'm sure it applies to any BMW with the CCC iDrive & Radio Systems) I use 'Radio' and 'Head Unit' synonymously. I am referring to the stereo/control unit behind the Dash, which connects to the 'Screen' above. Last...
  10. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I had my car serviced at the dealership yesterday. Since then, my radio won't shut off when I turn off the car and open the door. The owner's manual is referring me to another owner's manual that I don't see online. Surely someone knows how to make the radio stop when the car's shut off, without...

    Hi, so on my BMW E64, a SOS malfunction light came on and then the radio stopped working. Like when I go to Entertainment, it won’t let me use ( FM, AM, WB, SAT, and CD), and I was wondering if anyone knew how I can fix it? I’m not sure if this question has already been brought up but I though...

    Heya, As the title says, my iDrive, radio, and Bluetooth are broken. This all started a couple of months ago when it was colder.

  18. BMW Coding and Programming
    EDIT: figured it out, I found an option ($655) that was different than what the VIN decoders said($693). I changed that in the VO, then FA_Write to CAS, then SG_codieren to CIC. Hello, I just recently swapped my old CIC in my 2012 X5D with used one from a 2011 because it started rebooting...
