Hi gloria_garre, indications are very similar to what one would experience when the electrical portion of the ignition switch starts to fail. Most of the powered accessories such as the radio, mid, cluster displays etc are directly powered from the electrical portion of the ignition switch. In my experience at the dealer, I have had to replace a few switches, one being on my own parents 2002 530i. I would recommend having it checked, and also make sure your charging system is working to specifications.

The radio in my 1995 jeep grand cherokee plays full volume on the right channel when turned on.


  1. bad radio amp
  2. bad wiring to speakers.
  3. or bad speakers.
the tests are easy, ask.
my guess is the weak side is bad, the load side is ok.
you can turn the volume down on the load side using volumn control
if yes that side is ok, fix weak side.

ask how, but make sure the wiring in all 4 corners are not damage
and at both ends of harness.

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.

Did you ever find a solution for the QX56 nav screen? Mine is doing the same, I have been told it is navigation unit or possibly the screen. Was wondering if you had any luck before I pay money for something that doesnt fix the problem. Thanks

2000 bmw x5 nav screen blank. radio works but no


I know this is an old thread, but my 2006 325i Nav screen went bank also, but the radio still played. I noticed the glove box light and trunk light did not turn on also. I was told from mechanics is was probably a CID module for $2200, even though I mentioned the glove box and trunk light light were out and specifically inquired about a fuse. The mechanics never checked the fuses, because I checked my fuses in the glove box and found the fuse 61 marked with a BMW symbol that looks like light bulb was blown. The Nav screen started back up once the fuse was changed.

My Radio and clock screen has went blank volume and controls do not work the clock does not work the radio plays and CD plays but screen is dead. 2001 525I BMW


it sounds like the Multi information display has failed (MID). It is the long display with all the radio controls on it. If you want to find a known good part they are really easy to swap out. Just remove the radio knob and if you look down in there, there is a place to put a T10 (i think maybe bigger or smaller) torx T10 screwdriver.if you turn it while pulling back slightly on the screwdriver it should come right out. It usually is the component that fails but as always you may want to check your fuses.
