stereo problems

  1. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I posted previously about an issue where I thought the armrest USB port on the 2016 328i xDrive that I just purchased on Friday was not shutting down, causing the battery to drain. (I previously had a 2014 320i xDrive for past 6.5 years that my wife totaled in a slow-speed/no injuries accident...

    Heres my issue: My car stereo unit will turn on and off. Display still shows time / lights on unit work. When I have the radio on audio will cut in and out. I'd say that 95% of the time I get nothing out of the speakers the other 5% audio will come through lasting second sometimes minutes and...

    Hi, I have a 2012 X1 and just had an aftermarket Alpine Bluetooth radio installed. However now I no longer hear the chime when you put the key in the ignition, seat belt not connected etc. Apparently I would need some kind of module for this to work, but there doesn't seem to be one. Has anyone...
  4. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I bought my car in March 2013 CPO with an extended warranty. It only had 12k miles on it! I got notice right away that there was a battery cable recall and I took it in for the remedy. I think they only greased the connector from what i remember reading on the mechanic notes, but now I cant...

    The stereo in my 1997 BMW 528i has been giving me trouble. It has power but the screen is blank, besides the time. (i can change it ). Could it be a bad fuse or is the stereo bad.
  6. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    After not having used it for a couple of years, I just noticed that my CD changer (in trunk) no longer seems to register/be recognized by the stereo's head unit. When I press the band button, it now just cycles between FM and AM radio (and changes to "Tape" if I insert a casette), but the CD...
  7. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi I'm new to owning a BMW and have a 316ti Coupe 2005 reg M Sport. I can't find anyway of connecting my iPhone 4 to the stereo so was wondering if the stereo can be removed and replaced with a newer model with a aux plug. Can anyone help?
  8. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hello, I am new to this forum because i just bought a 2002 bmw 745i. The car has 92k miles and seems pretty flawless minus couple little odd things. The thing that bugs me the worst is the dang radio fades in and out like the antenna isnt connected properly. Does anybody have any ideas as to...
  9. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I have found several posts on how to remove the wide screen head unit but few that covered my 4:3 unit. For the last year my screen comes on rarely. When it does it will typically freeze the go black but not shut off. All the buttons work. Recently I changed my battery so now I can't even...
  10. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Recently the stereo of my 323i has been acting up. At times I turn on the car and there is no display on the stereo, other time only the clock will show and I cannot turn on the stereo, and other times I turn on the car and the stereo comes on. I've noticed at times if I eject the CD that's in...

    Hi All, First time poster and first BMW. I have just acquired a 1999 BMW 528i SE (UK/Euro) it has a BMW Business Tape player and boot mounted 6 disc changer. It is NONE DSP. and does not have a separate amp as far as I can tell. As many have pointed out the standard sound is somewhat lacking...

  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    In my 1997 540iA the sound system does not play any sound out of the speakers. The front radio system lights still turn on and I can operate that but no sound comes out of the speaker. I have tried to reseat the fuses in the front and rear fuse box but it has not fixed anything. I was wondering...
  14. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi All, New to the forum but an owner of a 2000 528i and big fan of the site. My most recent issue is with the stereo system. It is not putting out any sound and I believe i have it traced back to a faulty head unit (non DSP). i have checked all fuses and replaced the amplifier but i still get...
