SOURCE: BMW remote control problem

I have a e60 525i that I just brought and it has the same problem, the owners manual suggests driving with the key in the ignition for a long time as the batteries are rechargable and may have gone flat, i have tried this and it doesnt seem to work

i also read something about getting water in the aerial about the rear window and that wrecks the receiever. My car isn;t under warranty so not looking forwarding to taking it to bmw

SOURCE: 2004 BMW 525i Active Steering problem

The Active Steering system uses a Papst brushless dc motor to rotate the cage (ring gear) containing the planet gears a planetary gearbox at the bottom of the steering column. The motor effectively changes the steering ratio by increasing or decreasing the amount of gearbox output rotation relative to changes in the steering-wheel angle input. The resulting ratio depends on the speed of the car. For instance, a low 10:1 ratio gives high maneuverability for parking in tight spaces, with less than two turns of the steering wheel, lock to lock. To track straight at highway speeds, where even a small steering input can produce a quick sideways acceleration, the electric drive boosts the ratio to 20:1. Cars without Active Steering typically have ratios halfway between (specifically 14.1:1 for the BMW).
....
Now, if your active steering does not work , the car reverses back to power steering and the ratio is 15.1:1 so the car can be driven but the "active steering " is not working and still needs to be fixed.
It the unit needs to be replaced and your car is not under warranty, the repair cost may reach 5000 dollars.

SOURCE: Need fuse panel diagram for 2002 BMW 325xi

fuse%20panel%20diagram%20for%202002%20bmw%20325xi.jpg7a5780c.jpg
This is what I could find. It doesn't have a steering whee radiol control fuse but has 2 fuses for the radio. It seems to be the same panel across the board for BMW's. 4x4's, diesels, gas, 6 and 8 cylinders, etc. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: My BMW 325i's steering wheel is locked and the car wont start.

Your steering column most likely is defective and you should be able to get this fixed under warranty. BMW discontinued this part in 2007. Its might go off if you put the key in the ignition and wait 5-10 minutes, but only maybe.

Radio developed fault. Sudden max audio output which cannot be reduced by volume control.Just before fault, a click was heard in the back of the car.


If you have steering wheel mounted controls then play with the volume switch and see if that drops the volume, if not unplug the steering wheel control harness for the radio an if that makes no difference then the radio is defective.

Did you find the problem with your radio Terry? I have a 2005 X type and the radio has just suddenly started doing exactly the same thing - cant change radio station or use steering controls, only the volume knob works.

2004 chevy truck radio control on steering wheel


there could be a broken wire in the steering wheel which would mean possibly having to remove the steering wheel but there will be an air bag that could go off which would be dangerous so its best left to the professionals unless you know exactly what you are doing as regards taking off steering wheels.

My radio will work but the lights do not come on and all the manuel buttons do not work, i can control the volume, stations, and am/fm from the controls on the steering wheel. I can not turn off the radio...


There was a Technical service bulletin issued on 03 and 04 G35's regarding the audio system circuit board. One of the symptoms in the diagnostic tree on the bulletin was whether radio buttons worked, Because you have control with the steering wheel it is a dead giveaway that the circuit board is the problem. I would suggest calling your nearest dealer with your VIN number in hand and find out if the circuit board has been replaced. Even if it has, it could still have gone bad. But I can be almost certain that is your problem.
