Question about BMW Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 1997 BMW 528i sedan imported from Japan and I need to change the radio settings to receive local FM channels. How do I access the settings to change the region to Canada or USA.

With the key in position 1, if I turn the radio on and hold down the Traffic key I can access the service mode but it only gives me the service serial number B1029238 and software version 29-26 29, the GAL speed sensitive volume control, the DSP digital sound processor which it is not fitted for and the FM field strength for each station. The problem is that the frequency range is set for 90Mhz or less and I need to change it to up to 109Mhz for USA stations. How do I access that function.

Have a car impoted from japan and need to know how to get local radio station frequencies like 93.7


You are going to have to buy a local radio from a junk yard or an after-market radio. The frequency range for broadcast radio is different in Japan than it is in the US (88 Mega Hertz to 108 Megahertz) in the US and 76 to 90 MHz in Japan. There is a device called a frequency range expander and you can find them on ebay sometimes but no assurances how well it will work.

Check out the website

it is how to get a japanese car working in the UK but you will get the idea.

Would like to put the original CD changer/player


To put the original back in just hope the harness behind the radio wasant cut into. If its not it should just plug right in and mount back up in the stock location.

as far as the cd changer. if you would want to add one. you would need to find the changer, harness and headunit from a model with one.
