Remanufactured BMW Business CD

I recently had my Business CD stereo in my 2004 X3 replaced (on warrantee) because the cd player kept holding on to the cds. The replacement they put in is a RMFD part number (Remanufactured BMW Business CD). It stereo sounds very different from the original one but looks almost the same.. Now I don't even know if this is ipod ready. 
I have a part number but no manual and the part number on the dealership paper work doesn't really correspond to other BMW Business CD numbers. How can I find out what model (and year) stereo they put in my car. Thanks for any help.

SOURCE: cd player and hot (high temperature) CD's

As with all electronics... anything can happen (even unexplained). There are two things to think abou tin this expensive experience.

  1. 1.CD's are made of plastic and metal... excessive temperature can cause them to warp, but not as bad as the old vinyl.
  2. Mosy electronics have an acceptable operating temperature. Although the unit may work outside these limits, it is not recommended. ex:My Sony DVD R/W has a range of about 40-95 F. Being in Houston I am sure the upper limit is reached OUTSIDE the car. Inside you are probably pushing 120+.
It may not be convenient but if you have to leave discs in the car, try putting them in a case in the trunk, out of direct sunlight. And let things cool down inside the car before trying the CD player.

I have not seen this before but like I said, anything is possible.

SOURCE: Where is serial number for Business CD player

Get in touch with the dealer. You may need to go there. If so, bring your title, registration, and photo ID to prove you're who you say you are, and the car is yours. They can look up the code for your car based on its VIN number. They may charge you though, up to an hour's labor, so be prepared.

04 Nissan Sentra recently installed remanufactured OEM Rockford Fosgate stereo. Problem: CD player does not play, displays "error 1"

Sometimes CD players come with a plug that keeps the reader arm in place during shipping. If you don't remove this plug it doesn't allow the arm to move, thus a code. You might recheck this. If that's not the case, check your warranty papers, you might need to use them.

My cd is stuck in player of a 2004 chevy blazer 4x4

  • You need to wait for your car's stereo to cool down. If you used it for it for an extended period of time, it may have gotten hot and the ejection device may not respond.

  • Hold down the eject button.If you can hear the mechanical ejection noise. If your car stereo is making this noise, it is more than likely that the CD is just sticking inside the CD player and you can try and grab it with your had and pull it out .

  • Look for a hole the size of a pin on your car stereo's CD player. This hole is very small and looks similar to one on a CD-Rom drive, after locating the hole, use a pin and attempt to manually eject the CD. Now in case you have a factory stereo.

    Hope this will help you out.

    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:
