    Hi all, I know this topic has been posted about quite often, but I’ve been sifting through for about 2 hours now and can’t see to find any relevant information for my case. I have a pre-LCI 2008 E90 BMW with the base stereo. So, my stereo (including bluetooth, aux, radio, but not door chimes)...

    I have SOS light on the dash and ISTA shows instrument cluster: no message (telephone). The radio usually works except a couple times it will shut off for a few seconds and then come back on. I have the HiFi speaker option. The first time the radio cut out is when I turned the bass dial all the...

    Hey guys, I have an E92 328i, no iDrive system, and no Logic 7 sound system. About two years ago, I had a SOS error pop up and after that I had absolutely no sound coming from my radio. The screen isn't on either. I still have the seat belt chimes and the chimes for when the door is left open...

    This SOS warning light has been showing on the dashboard ever since the car is no longer under warranty. Is there a way to deactivate the SOS? Can I do it without bringing it into a dealer? Or can only a dealer deactivate it so that the warning no longer shows on the screen?

    Hi guys, I am reaching out to you as a last resource since I have almost lost all my hope to get issue resolved. I have owned my E90 330i sedan for almost 7 years now and I love it. Couple of weeks ago once in a sudden out of the blue I got this warning "SOS system failure", my radio sound...

    Hello fellows, I have been having this strange issue with my audio system and even when I took the car to dealer a week ago they could not find any issue. This is what happens: The radio/Aux/Bluetouth pairing input is working fine and suddenly the voice cuts off. Once this happens I notice...

    I have just added a satellite receiver (purchased from eBay) in my 2008 E61. I rewired the MOST block according to installation instructions found on this site and plugged in the satellite receiver (65 12 6 948 064). I now get an 'SOS call malfunction...' warning a few minutes after driving, but...
  8. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I recently moved to a new state and do not have a mechanic. I have a 2005 645ci. I have no sound at all. No radio, door chimes, sensor sounds etc. I also show a SOS malfunction error with a slash through it. A while back my radio was playing and the volume was very low despite...

    Hi guys, I apologize in advance for such a long post, but I’m in desperate need of help. I’ve looked over this site for a few years now and you guys have been very helpful in solving many simple problems with my 535i and I thank you all for your contributions. I’ve looked around the forums...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Yesterday when I started my car, I got a warning message that said "SOS" with a phone symbol - all of which had a slash through it. I then realized that my radio and bluetooth stopped working. I'm not able to use any of my controls at the steering wheel (volume, input, etc) either. I checked all...

    Couple of weeks ago I was using Aux to play music from my phone and plugged in the USB charger a moment before my brain says no. I heard a little boom sound and pulled the plug out immediately. Darn! I knew you should not charge a device already connected to the car as it cause a short circuit...
  12. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2008 528xi and I recently started getting the SOS malfunction warning. I don't subscribe to the BMW Assist service, so I don't really care if it works any longer. It's just annoying seeing the light every time I start the car. Bluetooth works fine and nothing else appears to be...
  13. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Bluetooth not working, SOS Malfunction warning and USB connection in arm rest lost power all at one time. Dealer says the replacing the ULF module MAY fix it. No guarantees! Cost $1,100. OUCH. Trying to find out which fuse may be connected to these functions, but cannot find guidance...
  14. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    After the heavy rains in Los Angeles about 2 weeks ago, I got this SOS Malfunction and No Warning Tones messages in my Idrive screen. I checked the battery and the fuse and both of them are OK. Finally, brought my X5 2010 to the dealer and they found out that the TCU and the AMP needs to be...
