BMW 2005 325i Radio does not work!

All of a sudden the radio stopped working! does not power although it reflects the bluetooth phone book even though bluetooth does not work either! Is it locked or something is wrong with the radio?

    I have a 2006 325i
    with a Bluetooth feature which was working until a few days ago. I had to recharge my
    battery now nothing that
    relates with the bluetooth feature works. When I select the "phone"
    item from the "menu" nothing happens. Its as if the Handsoff feature is
    turned off. It does not do a search for bluetooth. The voice
    recognition is not working..etc. It seems that the Bluetooth needs to be reinitialized or something. Any ideas?

You are smelling burning antifreeze. likely a head gasket but only testing will determine that for sure...Do not drive it. get it to a shop or more damage is likely.

If the radio is displaying code wait, or wait, then the ignition and radio must remain on for 1hour. I would contact a dealer within the USA and provide them with your radio serial number. The serial number can be displayed in the radio by pressing and holding down the "M" button while turning on the ignition.

SOURCE: BMW Z3 WRONG UNLOCK RADIO CODE HOW TO GET THE RIGHT ONE

Go back to the dealer that told you the wrong number ! I have one and I am currently living in the Middle East but the car was brought from Europe... they have access and can track it down... Tell them that is the wrong code and not acceptable service...I asked to speak to a service mgr and they got it to me.. are you going to have your car serviced there ?? That's the point of paying for dealership service... so they can supply GOOD service and getting you the proper code counts...

SOURCE: BMW 325I Radio knob on/off not operating. Still

if the problem is with the knob being lose inside the radio, it can be repaired. I have been able to successfully repair every one that came into my dealership. most dealers will not attempt a repair. another alternative is to call a reputable audio installer/retailer and see if they will repair it.

In first instance try to disconnect the unit from the mains and reconnect 15-20secs later 8 times out of 10 it helps. otherwise you might need to reprogram the unit processor which is more complicated and requires knowledge and understanding of electronic principles, assembler, also some devices to perform the task.
Otherwise I'm not sure about exact model of your ECU (computer) but in some cases it also gives the access to reprogrammable radio unit, so in this case laptop, one simple program (u can find it as free downloadable .exe file) and special diagnostics cable wuold sort everything out. But as I said not all ECUs offers such an option. And if you'll go for this step you need some knowledge about electronics and soldering as you'll have to build the cable I mentioned, as tu purchase one would be quite painfull for your vallet.

Hope it helped although if you need any further information just drop a line here.

The radio on my bmwx3 stops working when bluetooth mode is activated on my phone.


Most BMWs have this feature on the bluetooth options to allow you to hear when talking on the phone.. you may be able to find out how to change this in your owner's manual in the radio chapter.

The output circuit in your radio has gone bad...I have seen this before about 4 times. You will need to get the radio replaced.

Are you sure the blutooth is active in your car? Contact the local dealer and have them run a "DCS" and confirm the car is fitted with Blutooth. Then go to www.bmwusa.com and check that your phone is apporved to work with the car. Provided nothing is wrong with the car you can then follow the instructions below.
  1. make sure your phone's bluetooth is "always on"
  2. get your phone all the way to the "search screen" and stop
  3. press the "menu button on the radio
  4. press the button below the "phone" in the menu screen of the radio.
  5. press search on your phone to locate the car.
  6. after the phone locates the car press yes to "bond"
  7. the phone/car will now ask for a password, enter 1111 and press enter or ok.
Ifyour passwrd does not work you will have to go to the dealer to get the correct one or you can locate the TCU in the driver's rear inner panel in the trunk and get the number off the unit. It will say "PK XXX"

I have recently added a Bluetooth ULF module to my car, every thing works except sound. I purchased the system from bimmernav.com, they supplied the old to new harness to connect from the original harness...


Hello Richard, when the ulf module was installed, was the jumper plug installed in the blue 26 pin connector in the left rear corner near the GPS unit. I think that if this plug is missing, you will not get any sound for the interface. This plug is required for vehicles with nav. I think it is called the Voice Input jumper plug.

Humming sound in radio


if you have a bluetooth phone paired to the vehicle, try deleting all bluetooth devices. Sometimes a battery reset can cause bluetooth synchronizing issues.
