Question about BMW X7 Series
Is the display not working or just dark? The four bulbs across the top of it are easily replaceable if it is just dark.
The radios in these cars have several common problems after a decade of use. In a 1998, I would expect the display to go dark due to cracked connections on the surface mount resistors. The fix for that is here: http://www.frontiernet.net/~papi/e36_Radio_Display.html
The volume control frequently fails on these cars after a decade of use. It is optical so tuner cleaner just makes it worse.
I had one in one of my two '97s just simply go dead on me the other day. I cannot find the problem so it is getting replaced. JVC head units have adjustable display and button colors so you can match the rest of the lights in the dash. Get an antenna plug adapter and a conversion adaptor so that the new head unit will plug in to the existing plug in the dash. You will loose the ability to control a CD changer in the trunk, and your antenna amplifier will no longer amplify FM.
