Question about Cars & Trucks
No sound. shows on front radio station and who is singing, but ive tried everything to get sound bmw bavaria rds nothing in the manual
Margaret, this is free public forum , demands don't play here (free)
and you double posted. why do that.? if you wish to elaborate
try posting below 1st post, as an add.
and for better help? why not post to a BMW forum. (faster)
and no car year, posted or car options listed.
Radio year, model and Car Cell phone options.
the first check on all electronics, is the fuse
most radios have 3 power sources, (to make all features work)
and fuses are on all 3.
have you tried all sources, AM/FM CD, MP3 USB (if opted) .
are all modes dead?
the next check is to try all buttons on the radio. ?
is there a mute button? if car has 4 speaker try the fader lever.
front to rear. left to right , still dead.?
cycle modes. radio, cassette, CD 6 pack , what ever, but do cycle them all as older cars the mode switch can stick.
The RDS is radio station text messages. for song titles.
including time, station identification and programme information.
if this part really works, the RDS part this means the radio is working, but the power amp is dead or muted.
try balance and fader.
many radios (1000s) have fuses in the radio for the speaker amp
that can blow. (shorted speaker wires a prime reason)
or some have in line fuse. and others are in the cars fuse box
which varies by maker or model year.
ok , im looking at the stock radio on level C stock 1991 radio
and even back when (stock to me) the is RADIO muting
so if your car has Cell phone muting bingo that.
and a fuse at rear of radio, (unstated purpose)
guessing,id say there is lamp that glows, CELL mute?
conclusion, no car year stated, or year radio of not origional.

yep just ring or pop into any bmw dealer with the full chassis/vin number & if the car is in your name they should be able to give to you.

Call BMW they have the code. Supply them with the serial number.
Don't enter the code until it is the correct one.
Enter the wrong code and you have to wait 1.5 hrs with the key on acc to try again.

As far as I know, you have to go to the dealer so they can see you actually own the vehicle and radio. They will pull the radio out to get the serial number and then enter that into their computer which will spit out the radio code. If they like you, you might not be charged.
PS: Of course you can't just ask for a code on a forum like this. That would invalidate the whole purpose of having codes in the first place! The radio in question might be stolen.
