SOURCE: radio has no sound

Hello, I've the same problem... however my sound is likely there when I restart the X5 after an hour or so, but it is as likely to disappear during the minutes that follow, often when the car is shaken.

There is then a fair chance to get sound back as soon I drop the phone after a phone call (but it does not always work).

--> My guess is that it is the line of the Phone "mute" signal that brings every sound source down thru a bad contact or so.

BMW wanted to replace the radio for 900 €. Hmm a lot of money for a bad conatct if my guess is right.

If the radio is displaying code wait, or wait, then the ignition and radio must remain on for 1hour. I would contact a dealer within the USA and provide them with your radio serial number. The serial number can be displayed in the radio by pressing and holding down the "M" button while turning on the ignition.

SOURCE: BMW 325I Radio knob on/off not operating. Still

if the problem is with the knob being lose inside the radio, it can be repaired. I have been able to successfully repair every one that came into my dealership. most dealers will not attempt a repair. another alternative is to call a reputable audio installer/retailer and see if they will repair it.

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.

2004 BMW X5 radio only stays on for 1 min after the car is started and the lights and controls don't work (ie. can't turn it on or off, can't adjust the volume, etc.) and the lighter socket light stays on...

Check to see is the radio connection plug all the way in and also check to make sure the white wire(ground) is clean and tight on the fire wall under dash.

No heat and when heat is turned on a tapping noise

It's the blend door actuator located behind the center radio console. A pretty simple and straight forward fix as I found out last night. You can get the part at most retailers, I found Advance auto was the cheapest in the bensalem, pa area. To remove the radio you will need a tool available at parts dealers as well or if your even moderatelt handy I made them from a coat hangar. Take the radio out, remove the rest of the moulding and climate controls(one piece), unplug the traction control/back up alarm if equipped and move the whole assy to the side. You will see the top of the actuator looking through the radio slot. The screws (3) are bolt head an extention comes in handy here. When you pull the old unit note the position of the post, you will have to plug the wires into the new unit and adjust the new post using the front climate control with the engine on. The rest is done in reverse. There is one pretty good video on facebook that goes throught the whole thing.. Good Luck P.S. took about 30-40 mins.

Blower blows but no heat comes out

I had same problem .There is actuators that open and shut the vent doors so you can control where the air goes , There is also 1 that controls hot and cold air on the heater core box , its behind the radio and next 2 the glove box , you will need 2 replace the actuator or tie it open so only hot air will pass when its on, the actuator is closer 2 the floor on passenger side near the radio

I got a BMW 750i 2006 and when I got the radio on and give it gas the volume goes up and down... People say it's the amp is it...

The radio volume goes up when you give it Gas this intern hides engine noise. This is very common with higher end cars
There is a adjustment on the radio that will set the level you wish the volume to go up when accelerating, its a nice factory option to have there is nothing wrong with your BMW.

This is a heater vent motor.

About $84.00 from dealer, pain in the *** to change behind the radio, but worth doing it yourself.
