    to clarify; by radio i mean tv, cassette, sat/nav, cd and radio. they all function correctly except the sound sometimes doesnt work at all. i havent removed anything except replaced dodgy cd changer in attempt to solve this.

    Hi Guys

    I've developed a problem with the sound on my AV system. It's an E39 5 series with 6 disc cd, sat nav, radio and digital tv tuner with 16:9 widescreen monitor, but recently the sound has become intermittent. All sound disapears a few seconds after turning on the ignition. It can be restored instantly by turning the ignition off and then on again (not reccomended on the M6). It may then be perfect for hours or could just as easily switch itself off again 3 minutes later.

    Any ideas? The only common denominator is the monitor as it's the sound from all sources that is affected.

    Your comments would be greatly appreciated.

    is this happening for everything (indash CD or indash cassette player, radio and trunk mounted 6-disc CD changer) or just the radio?



    is it intermittant in volume only or can you see it lose power to the whole unit (radio shuts off and turns back on)?



    if only intermittant in volume, does it happen when you increase/decrease volume at the radio or using the steering wheel controls?

You might want to suspect a stereo amplifier. Does your car have DSP? In any case, look in the trunk on the left hand side. You will find your radio amplifier back there. It will have about a 3in connector with a bunch of twisted pair wiring. Remove the connector and make sure there is no water contamination. All sound processing takes place in the amp.

    I would still suspect a radio amplifier might be cutting out.I have also seen the electrical portion of igition switches go bad, especially in E39 5series and E38 7 series. The factory monitor is just a display unit and the picture is generated by the factory navigation unit. Sound processing takes place inside the amplifier. If you have a DSP amplifier, they are coded vehicle specific.

Sounds like an issue with the BMW i system. I am sure there are BMW Forums on the net and I am positive that you wil not be the only one.

Always remember, The more 'toys' you have the more there is to go wrong!

1985 BMW 325i Electrical problems. The power windows and power sunroof intermittently worked the first week I owned the car. Now the power is completely gone. I can't roll and windows down! Does anyone...


It sounds stupid, but check the tail light sockets. My 5 series had all sorts of electrical problems and when I replaced defective tail light sockets, most of the problems disappeared.

Radio has no sound


Hello, I've the same problem... however my sound is likely there when I restart the X5 after an hour or so, but it is as likely to disappear during the minutes that follow, often when the car is shaken.

There is then a fair chance to get sound back as soon I drop the phone after a phone call (but it does not always work).

--> My guess is that it is the line of the Phone "mute" signal that brings every sound source down thru a bad contact or so.

BMW wanted to replace the radio for 900 €. Hmm a lot of money for a bad conatct if my guess is right.
