Question about BMW 325

Open Question

Why does the cassette deck in my '95 BMW 325i just flip from side 1 to side 2, without actually playing?

It does not eject the tape, though. Everything else with the stereo still works fine. Might this be a problem that a none-professional could fix?

SOURCE: check engine light comes on but car runs great 2002 bmw 325i and

The check engine light could be any number of things and the only way to find out is have the codes scanned. The brake light issue is common on E46 3 series. It is an issue were the brown ground wire that goes into the lamp housing melts at the connector causing a loose ground connection. The connector needs to be replaced and also add additional grounding wires to prevent further issues. And for fuel additives either use the cheveron techron, or the bmw fuel additive(the bmw stuff is the exact same thing, so just use which ever is cheaper).

SOURCE: I have a 1992 bmw 325i.The stereo is not working.

you need the anti-theft code for the radio....the radio should safe theft lock or something similiar to deter theft.....unfortunately you will need to pull the radio to get the serial number off the radio and than beg and plead with the dealer to give you the code without paying for it......you may want to check the owners manual for the radio code......some past owners sometimes will write the code in the book......

May have to remove the unit & take to a car radio
shop to have it repaired
Those shops are very hard to find, but will fix it
If you don't pull it out yourself it will get costly &
no repair shop fixes radios & tape deck,so forget
that approach

I put a tape in and it keeps flipping sides without playing and pops out and says Error. It even does it with a CD-Cassette Adapter. Before the Cln came up and I pressed on the eject button and that...


Cassette decks have sensors on the reels which tells the deck when the tape is at the end. When the reel stops the deck switches the direction of the tape and sometimes the position of the head(depending on the deck design). Most common problem is the tape is hard to turn, or the deck won't turn it ( deck thinks it's at the end, click, still won't turn, click, won't turn, click) you should fast forward and/or rewind your tapes from start to finish once in a while to keep them lined up(narrow spool/less friction), you shouldn't have to but it works. BUT,...your problem sounds like a slipping or broken belt/or dirt causing the problem. Take the deck out to have a look and clean the capstans(rubber rollers)belts,heads with alcohol and a Q-tip while your at it. Dirt's usually the main culprit and if you do have some other problem, cleaning it is always a win/win (It will also sound better clean)

I have a brand new tape adapter (for my iPod) that was working for weeks, but after I ejected it, it just keeps ejecting itself right when I try to put it back in. It will play just a tiny bit of the...


You might try flipping the adapter over the other way. If that doesn't work, you might want to try putting a cleaning tape in and clean the cassette heads. The tape player will sometimes eject a tape if it cannot read it very well. It assumes that the tape is damaged. Dirt on your heads can cause it to eject your adapter because it is having trouble reading the signal from the adapter.

Radio works ok. Cassette ejects tape, won't play. Cd skips/hesitates but plays. Panasonic 6 disc changer(factory installed) will not recognize cds. It gets err 1 msg. Would replacing the battery cause...


No, replacing the battery is not your problem. Must be pure coincidence..
Tape is ejecting because the deck is faulty. Either a broken belt or a broken plastic gear assembly. CD players in this model were made by SONY and are troublesome. Rather than trying to get someone to fix it, go to your local salvage yard and see what they have. They are for sale on ebay also. They are basically "throw-away" units as SONY struck a deal with GM and GM can't supply replacement parts. PLUS... there aren't too mnay shops around that fix these units.

Getting an ERR8 code on the factory tape deck. Holding EJECT for 5 seconds isn't helping. There is an iPod conversion cassette (no actual tape) stuck in there. Is there a manual release somewhere?


No, there isn't. The only way I know to remove a cassette when the 'Eject' function doesn't operate, is to remove the audio unit & disassemble it to the point you can access & manually turn the gear(s) of the 'eject' mechanism. In the process, you could possibly discover where/what the problem is and fix it.

Tape stuck in player - error code e13 shows


I just got a tape unstuck myself. Everytime I would hit eject it would make a clicking noise.

Here is what I did:
First I watched these videos to remove the radio.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29MTa4FLjtk&feature=channel

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqvk_PNo9Kg&feature=channel

Then I unscrewed the bottom panel of the radio.
Unscrew the brass screws holding in the cassette player portion of the radio.
Now flip the cassette player over to see your tape, etc.
When I pressed the eject button, I noticed a little motor with a worm gear would move a a gear which moved several other gears until it eventually moved a black gear which has a little post that moves the metal arm which moves back when pushing in a tape and moves forward when ejecting a tape. But I would get a clicking sound which seemed to be due to one gear trying to move a stuck gear.
I forgot the exact details of how I managed to get the tape out, but when I did get it out I noticed when I turned on the radio, it would act like it was trying to play a tape. But when it found out it couldn't, it would try to eject but would fail once again with the gear clicking sound.
I think I tried moving the black post on the black gear that moves the arm that pushes the tape out. Eventually I got to the point where the arm was pushed forward like it should be when a tape is ejected. At that point I was able to insert and eject a tape without any problems.

Hello.

You need to take out the cassette deck from the car. open the cassette deck by removing the various screws, once open, there is a small plastic gear which you need to wind manually which will slowly release the cassette.
