Question about 1998 BMW 7 Series

Open Question

BMW 740i, 1998 Radio not working, sometimes.

Radio intermitently does not work. Actual radio, which apparently is located in the trunk was replaced about 2 years back, but the problem has returned with the radio coming and going with no apparent reason.
Going over bumps does not seem to affect it one way or another.

Additionally, if the radio is working, I can only get 2 of the 6 CD slots to play.

You'll need the vin from the 740il or perhaps a code on the radio or even the s/n ?n the radio and a dealer can help you. You may have to indicate to the dealer the radio wasn't stolen/hot.

Why don't horn, radio, seats, and wipers work and doors won't lock?


Check your fuses to see if any are blown. BMW is funny, I used to have a customer who serviced cars like this and he had a real problem with the air conditioner on one. He finally managed to get a hold of an engineer at BMW who told him not to waste time on the car as they were designed to be driven for five years and then crushed because after that time period they were no longer had the precision that BMW is noted for. Not sure if he really heard that but it was funny.

The radio and signal switch on my 2002 bmw 525 i comes on at will, and sometimes the radio wont turn off, and the volume goes up and down. what should i do


If you have the BMW tool to pull radio, check wiring plug in rear of radio. Also check grounds (brown wires usually in bundles) If you don't have tool BMW dealer is the only other option. If it's the actual radio, I'll tell you now BMW will send it in for repair which is a one week turnaround. (I used to work for BMW of NA)

check where the wires go from the inside of the body to the out around the gromet. I did run into one that the wires rubbed. Also if the light are on the trunk lid check where they go through the trunk latch.
