Question about 2003 BMW 325

1 Answer

My problem is similar with my 2006 325i but now its out for good

My radio was cutting in and out the other day for about an hour then all of the sudden the entire unit shut off. sat. radio, radio, cd, aux, everything. not even the clock shows. I thought maybe it was a fuse problem but ive checked every fuse i thought corresponded to the head unit but they seem fine, any ideas whats wrong? I'm about to go on a 6 hour road trip and driving without music is going to be awefully lonely...

    No, the unit is completely stock. It was replaced about a year ago by my BMW dealer, but it cut out suddenly with about an hour left in an 11 hour trip

Have you messed with the cd player lately? or ever? is it a custom deck? If so, the wires may be loose or exposed. And when you hit a bump it may have crossed wires. happened to me once. Good luck, let me know if not and i will see if i can help further.

Radio cuts off when ABS cuts in

Yikes Dude this sounds scary I had a similar issue in my grand prix, my stereo sound would just cut out when my abs light came on. I had my friend the electrician take a look at my stereo wiring and the abs wiring and apparently there was like 2 different grounds hitting each-other. Personally I am no good with electronics but I would just suggest as he told when I have electrical gremlins take the device in question and follow all the wires to find breaks cracks and or bare rubbing wires.

Radio only works if I disconnect the battery and then reattach. Once that is done it will work for either a day or an hour and then again no sound. Does anyone know how to fix the problem?

if radio ground is good and power is 12v
that is a radio
you can test any radio on the bench. to prove it is a bad radio.
ask how. (battery , 2 speakers, and an antenna)
is the CD or cassette dead too, is AM and FM dead.

Changed car battery and radio-code will not work to get radio back on. It's worked in the past. Any suggestions?

Hi Diane:
You will need to visit the Honda dealer to obtain it; the radio unlock code is unique for each VIN vehicle, so no one can be offered via Internet.

Simply present the vehicle's VIN to get it; sometimes you have to make any payment to the dealer to request this information.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

I have a '99 Ford Taurus with a cassette and 6 changer cd player. The radio works for a while then cuts out, then comes back on. It can play for a few hours or a few days. I recently bought another radio...

yes i agree it sounds like it is overheating. Just pull back the carpet in the trunk on the left hand side. Check all the connections make sure its got a good ground etc.
This unit is where all the power etc comes from for the headunit and speakers.

Car cutting off and the radio ain't working says code

Hi, dont know where you are but i had a similar radio problem after changing battery......... contact your local daewoo dealer ( mine is Dutton Forshaw, Maidstone, Kent. They may be able to help) tell them the problem, they will ask for the chassis no. and the reg no., they will then give you the code that is factory set for the radio that was originally in the car from new. Cutting off could be any number of faults, find a local mobile diagnostic mechanic and ask for a tune up and explain the cut out fault. Sorry i cant help more. steve
