Have a look on the cd multi changer and see if there is a tiny pin hole, if so poke a pin inside and it should open, not all these BMW Systems have this feature but my 3 series did so worth a look. most likely it needs a new cartridge or it needs cleaning, check for any out of placve cds or ones that have come of the main rack.
Hope that helps, please send me the model number from the CD chnager if you want more info
If you turn radio on then mode it should display cd,if not there is no connection, either power or ubi cable.The only fuse is on the back of the changer.You have to remove to access.I don`t know your problem but if your cartridge will not eject, hold eject button and insert credit card under cartridge push fully in and move left to right this will locate micro switch.
2000 bmw 528i,my cd changer also reads no cds,this seem to be a common problem with all bmw cd changer.Anyway i removed the cd changer from my car,took the outside black cover apart only to see that a white big wheel came of its place,(its the wheel that holds the cd in place from the top (bottom wheel is black attached directly to the motor,as the cd is sandwitched between the black,and white wheels) .if that wheel is out of place the cd will not turn inside the changer for the eye to read it,so your radio screen will read NO CD OR NO DISC.Very easy fix,just place the wheel in its place,and everything worked fine,it took me 20 minutes to fix. p.s : 1- you do need to make sure you have an original cd in for testing it. 2- you do not need to recode your cd changer at the dealer if you have an old bmw,dealer will need to recode cd changers for 2006 and up. Good luck.
My guess would be that your sat nav was retro fitted, i'e not factory fitted. Who ever fitted it didn't use the correct wiring harness. It seems they may have used a wiring harness which didn't have the connection for a CD changer.
If you want to get this fixed you will need to replace the wiring harness which means stripping out the entire interior of your car, i.e seats, carpet, door panel. or you can live with the single CD which works.
If my answer has solved your problem, please rate me on fixya.
The carriage inside the cd player is half way in mode. Which means the cd has to be removed mechanically. In order to do this a qualified technition needs to dismantle it. On some models there is a reset switch next to the eject button on he changer. It will be very small. like the size of a paper clip hole. push in with a pin. Otherwise go to stereo shop
1) Pinch the socket connector to release the 2 pin connector 2) Turn the Gray mounting bracket 1/8 turn CCW –it will come loose 3) Replace bulb – don’t touch new bulb with hand 4) Insert Grey mounting bracket and lock with 1/8 turn 5) Re-connect 2 pin socket connector – it will click in
