I have a 2006 bmw 330xi. when listening to the radio, the sound cuts out abruptly...the weather makes no difference. changing radio stations doesn't help. the problem does not happen when i am listening to my ipod. any ideas?
Hello ,.this could be a bad antena amp it is located in the c pilar left side of vehicle /( if it just started to do the problem ) what i mean is that this is not a new vehicle that you recently got /or the radio are is wrong ,the bmws come with international radios that you can change the different waves of singnals to the same radio ,example if you move to japan you can use your radio in japan / to do this press the mode button and hold it and it will give you the diferent ptions . good luck

yes it sounds most likely like an ant amp, and it is not that hard to replace, the best way to determine it is a new one since it is intermit, it is located in the C-pillar i think on the pass side but i could be wrong all you have to do is remove the light from the trim piece detatch the top part the pull up it sits in a groove, looks like a small white plastic box
The clicking sound id probably your starter solenoid. Tis solenoid is actually a relay that connects your starter to the battery so the starter can turn the engine over to get it started.
Try knocking the starter with a hammer, (not real hard, just kinda medium) and see if that makes a difference
I suspect your starter is going bad.
Any indication of prior problems with starting?????
Had the same problem with my '03 330xi. Navigation worked fine but radio and CD did not work at all. I opened the fuse box located in the glove compartment to check the three fuses associated with the navigation system and radio. #7, #39, and #41. All three fuses were intact so I put them back in. I then put the key into the ignition, turned it to position 2 and miraculously the radio came to life. I guess it acted as some type of reset?
