Have the radio checked out as the band change switch is not working. Try going into the mode /menu section of the radio and adjusting it there . Changing antenna does nothing as the radio works on either band with the same antenna

SOURCE: humming sound in radio

if you have a bluetooth phone paired to the vehicle, try deleting all bluetooth devices. Sometimes a battery reset can cause bluetooth synchronizing issues.

SOURCE: My Radio and clock screen has went blank volume and controls

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.

SOURCE: Radio won't play

You have had a loss of power to the radio (such as when the car battery is changed), or the radio has been replaced or disconnected from the car's wiring harness. This is a theft deterrent because the stolen radio is useless to someone without the activation code. This code can be obtained from a dealer or it is found on a small plastic card that is part of the original owner's materials. Number is usually 5 digits. When you turn on the radio and the readout says 'CODE ', enter the number by using the numbered station selection buttons (which are numbered 1-2-3-4-5-6). If the radio beeps when you are entering the number, start over. If it keeps beeping, you have the wrong code number (which might be the case if the radio has been replaced). Note: The 'CODE' button located on the small computer face to the right of the radio (with the date, mileage, temperature, etc) has NOTHING to do with the process or the radio 'CODE'.

SOURCE: FM will not play

It may not be disconnected but may have a break in cable somewhere, or bad connection. I'd be tempted to buy a cheap one at parts store that will plug in to rear of stereo and just try it. Unwrap it carefully & that way, it can go back & say wrong one, if not needed.

Thats a very unprofessional attitude from a BMW dealer.The least they could have done was to try on your X3 a radio from another X3 and that way eliminate or not,if it your radio is faulty.I work at a Bmw dealer and thats the thing we would do.An issue like yours would not come up on the computer!If they checked all the aerial wiring from the radio to aerial and its ok,then its a faulty radio FM tuner.
Is your car still under warranty.Either way report the dealer to Bmw NA.

Replaced battery - need to reset clock / radio won't play


My manual said the same thing. Although I have never had the radio stop working on me even after I changed the battery. To set the clock you hold the mode button, like your changing the bass/ treble. Hold it down then it will show clock flashing. From there I cant remember i think i used the arrows by the number pad to change the time. Hope this works for you.
