Question about BMW 528

1986 BMW 528 Stereo

The radio in my car was not working so I removed it to find a blown fuse. When I replaced the fuse and plugged the radio back in I got a CODE readout on the display and none of the buttons will work, they only beep when pressed. Is there a code to reprogram them or is the radio shot?

Actually your radio has an antitheft system to prevent thefts to use it, but most of the times the previous owner will know the code or he might wrote it down at the owners manual,
or you can try to contact the dealer some times they will be nice and just give you the code, but you nned to be ready with the vin number of the car, and the serial number on the radio in order to get the code from the dealer, but if you have a friend or relative with auto repair, they wiil call the dealer, in most cases they have very good erlation with auto dealer.

How do you check fuse in the back of the radio?


1.Turn off the vehicle. Locate the main fuse box.
2.Locate a fuse box that isn't under the dashboard by checking under the hood of the car.
3.Look at the diagram on the inside of the fuse box's cover.
4.Determine if the fuse is blown by looking through the clear plastic casing.
5.Take the blown fuse to an electronics store or a car-parts store.Push the new fuse into the empty slot in the fuse box, making sure that it is in the same direction as the other fuses. It should slide in with a tight fit.Replace the fuse-box cover.
6.Complete the above steps before removing the car radio.Disconnect the car battery under the hood by disconnecting the cable from the negative terminal (the black cable) of the battery. Remove the dash area around the car radio.Unscrew the four screws on each corner of the car stereo.Locate the fuse on the back of the car radio.

7.Take the blown fuse to a car-parts store or electronics store to find a replacement fuse. Place the new fuse into the car radio.lide the car radio back into the dash opening. Replace the corner screws followed by the dash trim panels. Put any screws and clips back into place.Reconnect the car battery. Turn the car on, and if the blown fuse was the problem, the radio should work.

there are 2 fuses boxes in cab and 1 in engine bay
we test the fuses, we dont change them out willy nilly.
even better, is to measure the voltage at at the radio.
the power pin is 12vdc, keyon
if not the fuse is blown or the wire is cut.
end story.
my guess is car wiring was hacked long ago with stereo upgrades
or other hacks, (alarms,etc)
old cars are like that, hacked.

Stereo dos not work


first confirm fuse for radio circuit is good, replace if its blown.
If fuse is good, and radio still not working, check power wires and plugs from back of radio to fuse block--check for broken wire, rubbing wire (worn insulation = short in circuit), loose connecting blocks, loose /broken wires in connection blocks. If that all checks out -- got to the nearest wrecker and get a 2nd hand radio OR by an aftermarket radio. OR pay an auto-radio shop to check your radio and maybe the wiring.

Plugged a phone charger in to the cig lighter and it blew my radio, horn, door locks and dome light. Will replacing the fuses work?


Yup, changing the fuses (or a fuse, for that matter) might work. That sounds like the effect a blown fuse would have. I'd also replace the phone charger, on general principle.

2001 BMW X5 radio works intermittently


Most sat nav/radio issues are caused by a flat battery! The most simple solution to try is th switch the vehicle off, go to the fuse box on the right hand panel of the boot (as your facing boot) remove fuse 24 (5 amp) for 5 minutes then replace and start vehicle as normal! This will reset the nav/stereo system! Rich B

There are a couple of little things not working.The radio works but i can't tune in any channels and the rear defrost doesn't work.is it a fuse?


check that the antenna cable is still plugged into the back of the radio and plugged into the bottom of the antenna at the finder to check radio end insert 4 large paper clips into the square holes in the front corners of the stereo this disengages the lock mechanisms slide the radio out and check the connections if electrical antenna check the fuse on the back of the radio that it isn't blown if so replace. loosen the inner fender panel and see if cable still connected to antenna #2 check the fuse for the rear defroster its probably blown if so replace and check for any grounded out hot wires also check the connections at each end of the rear window sometimes they become corroded or unglued from the window, if any of the fine lines that cross the window have been scratched or removed partially this will also render the defroster inoperable
