Hi Anthony,

Believe it or not, this is a very common issue in most of these model, I personally own an 2000 S500 myself and I have this problem too, I already checked with others who with the same model car and they have also experienced this issue. Here is what worked for me and others that have taken the same steps I'm about to layout to you... You can do this yourself or you can pay someone to do it for you, It may cost you approximately 100 bucks. If you decide to do it yourself you may have to consider some special tools to remove Radio, Dashboard or CD Changer whichever you may need to repair, level of difficulty is about 6 - This also depends on your ability to work on such projects...
Most of the time, the reason why the audio system device stops is because your CD Changer has seen better days,... As matter of fact, Models such as S500 2000 - 2006 had a recall regarding the static charges in the truck causing audio system failure on CD Changer and other electrical components. However we all know that, Mercedes Benz Engineers have seen us coming...Trust me! Isn't it interesting how the car start to decompose right before our eyes and electrical components starts to go immediately after the warranty runs out or right after you finished making your last payment. ;-) Anyway... remove the rear CD Changer located in the Trunk on the rear left corner of your car right below the rear tail light, remove the carpet, then remove the silver metal thin cover plate exposing the entire CD Changer, locate the screws the holds the CD Changer in place... This is the hardest part I don't know where they're on your vehicle, but be patient... you may need a small mirror attached to a stick, a flash light, gloves, a special screw driver for Benz, Search for a Video on you tube on how to remove the sound system on a s500 and you will see what I mean! Once you remove your CD Changer, you will need to connect a wire back to where the CD Changer was plugged into, and your radio should start working after that! Just to be safe I would disconnect the battery cables to avoid damage to your system... Hope I was able to help you get your awesome sound system loud again... Good Luck!

Integration mp3 player to 2005 x3

call a BMW dealer and talk to either your salesman or parts. ask them if they can run your VIN to see if it is prewired for a CD changer (assuming you don't see the wiring in the rear compartment). all they will need is the last 7 digits of the VIN.

BMW does sell an IPOD controller, but i think DICE makes a better one. check them out here:

Can I add a jack to play an ipod to my factory 6 cd stereo?

I believe so, there are some audio jacks that are converters from a power source, such as, a lighter jack.

2000 Audi A4 stereo system

Yes. I know of two units out there: Denison's IceLink, and the Phatnoise box (or Phatbox, as some call it). I believe both install the same way. You figure out where you want the iPod connector (say, glovebox). Pull the stereo out of the dash, disconnect the CD changer (you'll lose the changer function with these but who cares?), and plug the adapter cable into the changer's port. It'll allow the iPod to play through the factory stereo, and will allow you to control the iPod with the buttons on the factory stereo.

The aux is for the cd player, there is no wire in the back for an aux. But you can buy an adapter that splices into the back which allows you to use the stereo to control your ipod. It only works because you could have a 6 cd changer stock, so it uses those controls.
