No sound output in 2000 BMW 328i 4dr Sedan but radio functions properly?

Hi Toxey.

Does your trunk amplifier got power.
basically amp need remote power input it is coming from your radio.
please check when you turn on the radio remote power must turn on.
if no it is radio problem or wire is damaged itself.
please check the outputs,speakers with multimeter or single 1.5v cell.
if power is ok.and the remote on signal is ok your device still not working , it is the problem with power amplifier unit.

please check and let us know the status.

Radio works, no sound though

some of these cars have infinity sound systems if this is the case the factory amplifier probably went bad and a new radio and an amp rewire will fix the issue. you might want to check the trunk too soetimes people cram all kinds of things in the trunk and you might have broken a speaker terminal on the rear deck and it is touching metal and shorting out the radio causing the sound prcesssor to turn off. hope this helps.

Radio appears to be working but no sound. 2001 Monte Carlo SS Any suggestions

There is an amplifier located in the trunk under the back deck. See if it is hot to the touch. If so, one of the amplifier ICs is shorted. The amplifier has a remote turn on that may not be working. This may be a problem also. I can repair the amplifier for $60 including shipping. Contact information... (rike2 at bellsouth dot net)

My radio works but no sound is coming out

Avalons had a sound amplifier, when the sound fail the amplifier is bad, the only thing that can disable the amplifier is a short speaker, look this is a common problem a customer puts lots of stuff in the trunk while driving hits a bump one of the box jumps and smash the post of the rear speakers both terminals touch each-other creating a short. somebody working any door replacing a window motor and accidentally creates a short in a speaker. rarely there is a bad connection at the amplifier created by corrosion,just connect and disconnect the amplifier connectors, the amplifier is located behind the glove box is a silver box with 2 connectors the computer is there to that is silver and has 6 or more connectors.

More than likely with a 2003, the speakers that cut out are in the door or doors. Do they cut out of both speakers?

If they cut out of one, then you may have an intermittent speaker ( the wire to the cone becomes partially connected)

If both speakers turn off at the same time and you hear NOTHING on all speakers, then you more than likely have an intermittent connection on the radio itself and probably replacement is probably cheaper than fixing the radio.

One more thing
Factory radios sometimes have an amplifier in them. Sounds funny but they call the Radio in the dash the Head Unit and the amplifier is buried in the dash. You could have a bad amplifier or a loose power connection to it, but that is very unlikely.

Hope this helps.

Radio has no sound or intermittent e39 5 series '00.

You might want to suspect a stereo amplifier. Does your car have DSP? In any case, look in the trunk on the left hand side. You will find your radio amplifier back there. It will have about a 3in connector with a bunch of twisted pair wiring. Remove the connector and make sure there is no water contamination. All sound processing takes place in the amp.

No sound comes out of radio

These cars have an external amplifier in them where all the speakers connect to. The headunit/radio is just there to provide a preamp signal to the amplifier. Usually the amplifier is mounted either in the trunk, under the dash, or under one of the seats. If you have a bad speaker, this will cause the amplifier to shut down and not output any sound as well.
