Question about 2002 BMW M3

Open Question

My 2002 in dash navigation system with cassette is acting weird. There is a button in the upper right of the head unit that once pressed, animates the head unit to slide down and into the varietal position to reveal the cassette slot. I was driving down the road and the head unit just opened to reveal the unit and will not close. The motor is always running and will drain the battery if the fuse is not pulled. BMW of North America has never heard of this and said I have to replace the unit. Everything in the unit otherwise works fine, radio, CD player and Nav. Any ideas?

Dodge infinity


The Infinity system includes a CD/cassette receiver or a CD receiver in the dash, and a complement of 7 speakers: 3-1/2" speakers in the dash (left, right), a 2-1/2" center dash speaker, two 6"x9" woofers in the front doors, and two 5-1/4" speakers in the rear doors. You'll have to remove a section of the dash to install a new stereo, as you do with the non-Infinity system. You'll need a special adapter to connect a new car stereo to the Infinity factory amp http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120CHTO02/Axxess-CHTO-02-Factory-Integration-Adapter.html?tp=3486

Navigation CD is stuck in the unit, how can I remove the cd?


Hi Eric. I would recommend repeatedly pressing the navigation eject button about 5 times to see if the unit will respond. If not, there is a fuse in the right rear area above the battery. On the trim cover that folds down to access the battery is a fuse label. Pull the fuse for the Navigation system and leave out for 10 minutes to let the unit cool. Reinstall the fuse and try once again to eject the disc.

I have an early e46 with the cassette player in the front and the cd changer in the boot. Can I swap the head unit for one with a cd player in it, and do I need anything else ? Thanks


You can replace the old radio and cassette player with a new modern aftermarket dvd player gps navigation unit like this.

It's with more features except navigation system, USB, iPod, AUX, SD, DVD player, rear view camera video input, and it's touch screen, easy operation.

Cassette and Multiple CD Player are jammed


855912d.jpg5a89282.jpgea9be37.jpg

Hi,

If you hear a whirring sound followed by a click (or series of clicks) when trying to eject a cassette, then you probably have a broken tape which has wrapped itself tightly around the first spindle, thereby preventing the cassette bed from raising to the eject position.

That was the problem a few days ago with my father's Becker Audio 10 unit fitted in his E240.

You will need a set of removal tools (see photo 3), a flat bladed screwdriver, a small cross-head screwdriver, a scalpel (the latter's small sharp blade is needed to get into the confined space and cut away the offending tape) and, possibly, a small Torx driver.

1
Remove the unit from the car using the removal tools and disengage the antenna plug and the two electrical connector blocks (1 x single and 1 x double) from the rear of the unit.

2
Using the flat-bladed screwdriver, carefully prise the top cover away from the unit - I started at the back on either side and then slowly drew the screwdriver forwards until enough of the top cover had been raised to allow me to grasp it and pull it free.

3
Remove the small, black, cross-head screw (circled in red and marked 'C' on photo 1) nearest the front of the unit and then remove the plate it is securing by lifting and moving to right (to disengage it from the securing pin (indicated in red on photo 1).

4
Remove the small, black, cross head screw (also circled in red) towards the rear of the unit. It is now possible to remove the side fence by carefull manipulation, disengaging the lugs and pin indicated by the red arrows on photo 2. TAKE CARE NOT TO DAMAGE THE RIBBON CABLE indicated in blue on photo 2.

5
The broken tape wrapped around the spindle will now be visible (the approximate position is indicated by the blue disc with a white X on photo 1). Use the scalpel to carefully cut away the tape from the spindle - this could take several minutes depending upon the amount of tape and how tightly it has been wound.

If greater access is needed, remove the Torx screws (circled in red and marked 'T' on photo 1) to partially disengage the cassette sub-assembly. It will remain connected the the printed circuit board at the rear so care should be taken not to move it excessively.

Once the damaged tape has been cut away the eject mechanism should function normally once more.

Reverse the forentioned procedures, secure the top cover and re-install unit, remembering to have the code card handy!

I can't suggest any solution for the autochanger.

Best of luck,

JC
