    Interior turn signals as well as raido is not working. Checked all fuses. Ok. Disconnected battery for an hour and then reconnected to reboot. No impact.

    With my X5 2001 my turn indicators on the inside of the car stopped working. The outside lights were fine. The radio clock stopped and no music. the radio will come on and off as I'm driving but still no sound. The seatbelt light message comes on when driving for no reason. and the self leveling suspension inactive light comes on. Sometimes the car will go down then come back up after I park. I checked all the fuses and put a brand new battery in the car. can some one please help.

I had the same problem with the suspension on an o2 X5 Sport,it was the stabiliser pump in the rear,Range rover is the same pump and is cheaper than the BMW part,they also do an exchange unit.

I had a very similar problem. The AA and BMW checked all fuses.The problem turned out to be an electrical cluster behind the steering wheel.
Replaced by BW for about £580!
Now need a new sat nav system at £16000 apparently - the fun of BMW ownership!

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

2000 bmw x5 nav screen blank. radio works but no


I know this is an old thread, but my 2006 325i Nav screen went bank also, but the radio still played. I noticed the glove box light and trunk light did not turn on also. I was told from mechanics is was probably a CID module for $2200, even though I mentioned the glove box and trunk light light were out and specifically inquired about a fuse. The mechanics never checked the fuses, because I checked my fuses in the glove box and found the fuse 61 marked with a BMW symbol that looks like light bulb was blown. The Nav screen started back up once the fuse was changed.

BMW X3 2.0D , unable to view radio display and clock


if you look in the front fuse box there should be a fuse associated with the sound system. what u need to do is take out all the fuses that have radio/cd changer and navsystem*(if there is satnav). You need to take all these fuses out check them. if they are all good clean the contact with a bit of still wool and wipe them, then just put them back in. you have to have all of them out before you replace them. it should work fine after that.

2004 BMW X5 4.4i Left lights on resulting in flat battery. Car was jump started from another vehicle (Ford Transit van). Everything fine for a few days. Now, intermittently the radio/sat nav goes haywire!...


sounds like your car has the multi function steering wheel, i know on the 7 and 5 series they come out of sync, im not sure why.
its about £75 to get plugged in at the dealers and they reprogram it, sometimes i have had the odd car with a damaged slip ring, it does all sorts of things, 1 in particular kept on beeping the horn,
i would say if u got 1 urs got upset when battery flat.

BMW X5 - 2005


Hi kuldipdhanja this sounds like it could be an internal fault with the video module or the sat nav drive, you could try discontecting the battery negative lead for 15 minutes to reset the control units, you will have to remove the spare wheel and unfasten the air compressor bracket to get to the battery, this fix may only be temporary but it is alot cheaper than replacing parts. regards mark.

Can you put factory sat nav in an X5 when it does not already have it in


Hello There

Yes it is possible to install the factory sat nav in you X5, but apart from the head unit you will also need:

  1. new wiring loom
  2. dvd navigation unit installed at the back
  3. TMC radio unit again at the back
  4. bluetooth unit
All the interior needs to come out i.e seats, floor carpets, door trims.

If you feel brave enough then there are BMW forums which gives you very detailed information on how to to it, but don't expect to get it done in a day or even two, a week is probably realistic time. It took me 2 weeks to do my first 3 series.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks
