Question about BMW X3 Series

1 Answer

I have a 2008 BMW X3 that has an annoying crackeling noise from the radio. It doesn't happen with the CD player only the radio. It is always present but most notable when a softer song is playing. When I have it programed to KBCO a FM station with the largest signal in Colorado it sounds like an AM station. They checked the antenna and there was no problem. The dealership has heard it and said nothing is coming up on the computer and to just live with it until it gets worse.This is really frusterating and very unpleasant to listen to. I had more confidence in both BMW and their mechanics.

Thats a very unprofessional attitude from a BMW dealer.The least they could have done was to try on your X3 a radio from another X3 and that way eliminate or not,if it your radio is faulty.I work at a Bmw dealer and thats the thing we would do.An issue like yours would not come up on the computer!If they checked all the aerial wiring from the radio to aerial and its ok,then its a faulty radio FM tuner.
Is your car still under warranty.Either way report the dealer to Bmw NA.

DCS indicator always on...can not turn it off with dcs dash switch


what did you in install/ remove to install radio - there are many things that could have been disturbed to cause this light.
unfortunately the only correct way to clear the fault or find the problem would be to take it to a dealer.
If you were inder the dash, checked the wires to the steering angle sensor.

BMW CD player wont turn on!


BMW's factory radios have a radio code which when the battery is removed, is required to have the code entered. If you see the word "Code" in the radio, then look in your manual for the radio code. If you don't have it, you will have to go to the dealer, present your registration and they should give you the code without charging you a fee. Suggest you call the dealer first to see what they need to give you the code.

Integration mp3 player to 2005 x3


call a BMW dealer and talk to either your salesman or parts. ask them if they can run your VIN to see if it is prewired for a CD changer (assuming you don't see the wiring in the rear compartment). all they will need is the last 7 digits of the VIN.

BMW does sell an IPOD controller, but i think DICE makes a better one. check them out here:
