I would recomend looking behind the left access cover in the trunk where the navigation computer is located. Inspect the area for any water intrusion, and if possible check the connections to the navigation computer for water or corrossion. the display colors are generated by the navigation computer via RGB lines. If the nav computer is cutting out, that would explain why a battery reset helps restore the picture.

SOURCE: where is the fuse box located on a 2008 bmw 528i?

Like most domestic cars the Fuse box is usualy located in a couple of places, most of your newer cars both domestic and foriegn have more than one fuse box, one is under the hood of the car, and most likely has a black plastic cover on it, and the second one can be in a couple of places, under the dash by the steering wheel, on the side of the dash by the drivers door, or on the side of the center console on the drivers side behind a panel, and on rare occaison it may be in the glovebox......hope this helped.....

I have an early e46 with the cassette player in the front and the cd changer in the boot. Can I swap the head unit for one with a cd player in it, and do I need anything else ? Thanks


You can replace the old radio and cassette player with a new modern aftermarket dvd player gps navigation unit like this.

It's with more features except navigation system, USB, iPod, AUX, SD, DVD player, rear view camera video input, and it's touch screen, easy operation.

Navigation screen wnet out. Won't come back on.


you can try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes. it sounds like the m-ask/ ccc(head unit) has failed. It generates the picture for the i-drive screen and is the main module in the audio system (most bus).

2003 BMW CI Convertable Radio/CD Problem


Had the same problem with my '03 330xi. Navigation worked fine but radio and CD did not work at all. I opened the fuse box located in the glove compartment to check the three fuses associated with the navigation system and radio. #7, #39, and #41. All three fuses were intact so I put them back in. I then put the key into the ignition, turned it to position 2 and miraculously the radio came to life. I guess it acted as some type of reset?
