Question about 1995 BMW 3 Series

Bmw radio in '95 325 works 5 to 10 min.,then fades out completly

The radio in my 1995 BMW 325 works for about 5 to 10 minutes, then sound fades out completely (the station light on the dial stays on). The cd (in trunk) doesn't work either. Is it the wiring? The amplifiers? Where do I go? General repair shops don't want to handle the problem. I purchased the car used just recently.

    Not a Kenwood. It's a BMW product, I expect. I just went to a car audio shop and they say the problem is electrical, but when I asked how to solve it, they had no solution!!!! Of course they charged for that info.

I need fix code radio for my 1995 bmw

You probably need the special 5-sided tool to loosen the two screws under the little doors on either side of the faceplate to pull out the radio. Try other tools, but if the screws are really tight, you need the proper tool, which you can buy on line.
Slide out the radio, read the serial number, and give it to the service writer at a BMW dealer. If they want to charge you money to look up the code, try another dealer.

Radio continues to fade in and out, plays for awhile fades out

Need more information on this if possible.

It may be the speed volume is enabled on your radio, does it fade out when you start to come to a stop? Some vehicles have a speed volume setting in their radios in which the radio raises and lowers the volume during driving conditions, like when your comming to a stop, the volume will automatically lower and during faster driving speeds will rise to a higher volume.

Hope this helps

1995 bmw security code

If you do not have the code written down somewhere in the literature you got when you bought the car then the only way to obtain it is through a dealer. When you call BMW they will ask you for the serial number of the radio. This is located on the radio and can only be found by removing the radio itself. I hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.

Airbag light stays on for 2 minutes

Have the airbag system scanned for codes. Will require BMW software to complete. Possible local repair facility that can help otherwise you will have to go to the dealer.

My 1993 BMW 325i radio turns on, but after a few minutes fades to no sound. Turn it off for a several seconds and comes back on but quickly fadws out again. The same for the CD player and all radio bands....

This problem is most likely caused by the stock Blaupunkt amplifier which is located in the trunk on the drivers side behind the carpet that covers the inner fender.
