It's unlikely that all the speakers would suffer a blowout at the same time, so most likely the problem is in the head unit (the dash unit). The head unit has an amplifier built into it, and sends the sound out through the car's wiring to each speaker. It's possible that the amplifier died, but it could also just be a fuse - if you're getting a display on the unit but no sound, then the fuse is fairly unlikely and you may well be looking at a problem with the head unit itself.

My radio volume just stopped working but you can see the channels and change from different stations what is wrong with it


If you have volume but cannot control it, this is a common problem. The volume is optical so it may just have dust in it, but I have had zero luck cleaning them. The only solution I know is to replace the whole head unit.
If you have an HK factory stereo with no volume at all, and the four channels went out one at a time, the amp in the trunk has failed. Another common problem. The amp is on the driver side above the wheel well. You have to remove the driver side rear deck speaker to get the trunk lining off without tearing it. The screws that hold in the speaker are beneath the speaker grill in the rear deck. Good luck getting a 15-year-old speaker grill up without breaking the snaps. Slide a putty knive in from the sides to try to release them, but they will break anyway.
If the amp has failed, you can just bypass the amp but you will have no subs or tweeters. I did that while looking for a good deal on a junkyard amp. You can buy a new HK amp from BMW but they are prohibitively expensive. You could buy an alternate brand amp and add crossover circuits to power the subs and tweeters if you are really handy with electronics.

If you have an HK system in your BMW and you replace the head unit, use the antenna power wire from the new stereo as the 'on' signal for your HK amp in the trunk. Your FM may not work quite as well because the BMW head unit communicates with the antenna amplifier. Also, if you have a BMW CD changer in your trunk, no other head unit will communicate with that other than the original BMW head unit.
Other than the CD changer and the antenna amplifier, the wiring adapter that you can get from Crutchfield or from Amazon will make the stereo head unit replacement plug-and-play.
You may need a special five-sided wrench to get the old stereo out. You can buy that wrench on line if you can't force some other tool into those two cap screws that hold the stereo in.

to be totally honest i have no idea why it doesnt run right but looking at teh codes then i would hazard a guess and you wired the radio into the automatic volume increase control ,lot of vehicles have them its where the radio will increase in volume as the speed increases and i think you have connected into this wire thinking it was switchable 12v feed from ignition for the radio ,disconnect the radio completely and try that

When I press any button on the stereo, the screen displaya "code." Also the volume is very very low, is this just because the stereo needs to be unlocked?


The security system for the audio has been tripped. If you have the security code, you can enter it. Otherwise you will have to call a dealer and have them reset for you unless you can convince them to give it to you over the phone. You will need your VIN when you call them.
Good luck.

2002 Dodge Van towing a Rock Climbing Wall. No


I would think that the wires from the RCW (rock climbing wall) that control the running lights are wired to the interior dash lights of the van, and a fuse blew, killing the above mentioned lights. Check the fuse block for a bad fuse, probably labeled inst lights or inst lgt. Did you make the trip there in daylight, and trip home at night? The fuse for the dash lights couldn't handle the extra drain of the RCW running lights.
