Question about BMW 1997-2001 Bmw 5 Series Radio/stereo Wire Harness Plug

GPS system turns off. Radio and CD player will also quit playing

I have removed and replaced the three (3) fuses that provide power and the system works for a short period of time and then goes off again.

I am able to play the radio by turning off the radio power and turning it back on again. It will play for about three (3) minutes and then quit playing again.

I seems like a bad breaker which would need to be replaced.

    Where is the circuit breaker?

  • Bernie Sanchez Mar 03, 2009

    2000 BMW 528i.

    GPS computer turns off. This also affects the audio system which continues to play for a couple of minutes then also turns off.

    I can continue to listen to the radio or cd player by pressing the on/off switch. Each time the radio will play for a couple of minutes then turn off.

    I have removed and replace the three fuses which are listed for the system and the system then seems fine and works for a few days and the problem returns.

Sounds like a faulty radio module in the boot.
As you say you have nav, i am assuming you have the on-board monitor?
If so, the radio module is on the left hand side of the boot, behind the trim, you will have to remove the cd changer and nav unit to get at it though, it has a typical radio multi plug on the top of it.. try tapping it to see if anything happens when its on.
does your car have the amplifier as well? (HIFI system) - if it does this could be another possibility and it could work out difficult to tell which one is at fault;
the radio module will produce the sound output from the various source's i'e changer,nav, radio, then the amp unit will amplify the signal so its louder, and includes dsp functions.
This is not an external radio fault (fuse breaker, etc.) This is a thermal shutdown problem. A service call is going to be required to get your radio operational again.
It may be cheaper to install an aftermarket radio!!

It will need someone to look inside and take some measurements around the circuit board area. For example, if an electrolytic filter cap has shorted down it may be drawing excessive current and causing the problem. But, there are many other possibilities.as if the fuse is not holding the exact charge required this can happen.check out replacing the fuse with some higher voltage.for example if at present you r using 1v fuse check out with 2v fuse and check this also many times makes difference.

Check the circuit breaker, and ensure this is not because of a bad power cable losing connectivity.

    If the GPS and then the audio system are turning off in sequence that means that there is a short in whirings or an internal problem that cause the system going into protection mode.

    Start checking the wiring and connectors to GPS and to audio system.

Original cd player won't turn on


First Check the fuses. There are two (or three) that run the radio

1 - holds the settings when truck is off (7.5A Acc) - probably not this one, cuz if it fails, lotsa stuff won't work.

2 - turns radio on when key comes on (10A Radio No1) - Check it with a meter, not your eye, the filaments are very fine.

(If you have the JBL system) (30A Radio No2 runs the amp/ subwoofer)

If these are both OK, and you're still having trouble, post back, you may need to remove the radio.......

Multiple issues with my 2003 GMC Yukon XL and hope someone can offer suggestions of what is wrong and solutions to repair.


First, is your cd & radio all one unit? If so, the cd could be causing your radio to be malfunctioning. You will have to take the unit out to go w/n the unit to remove cd manually.

Which fuse is the cd player in the fuse box


One circuit is constant power to keep the clock and station pre-set memory maintained. The other is for the radio in general. If the clock works, pull both radio fuses and put them back in one at a time to see which one is constant power. If one of them is blown, you can usually see the wire inside it is burned with a gap. I don't believe there is a separate fuse for the CD player apart from the one for the radio. If the radio works but the CD player doesn't, I'm guessing it's an internal problem.

The player will not eject the cd but it will not play it either.


I know it sound crazy, but turn the system on, press eject while using a PLASTIC knife to lift the CD in the player. If the system is stock also try disconnecting the radio fuse for about 10 minutes or so with the car off. Reconnect it to see if the radio resets. You'll know the power completely went out because you'll have to reset your stations. By Resetting, hopefully the issue will solve itself. In a few of the system issues I've seen, when the motor won't open the faceplate, or the CD player won't give the CD back. I usually remove the faceplate or disconnect the negative side of the battery for about ten minutes. Try this if the fuse removal doesn't work. Good look. Let me know how it goes. there are other things to try.

CD stuck in CD Player - 1998 Mazda Protege


It might be a Bose system. I usually remove stuck CD's by grasping the edge with a pair of tweezers and pulling slowly, there will be some resistance. Try to reset first by removing the fuse for about 30 seconds and after it powers up again (don't turn it on yet) push the eject button.

03 vibe cd player will not respond


I blew a fuse controlling the radio, charging system, turn signals, heater fan, ,etc..this ran down my battery.

When I replaced the fuse, the CD player would not respond, but the radio worked.

I disconnected the battery for over 30 seconds, hooked it back up, and the time reset on the radio to 12:00 and the CD player works again.

I have an '03 Explorer with the 6 disc changer. It does the same thing. Many times, you can set the radio to "FM1" and hold down buttons 3 and 6 on the radio. This will put the unit into self diagnostic mode. After it runs the diag., turn off the ignition and remove the key for at least 30 seconds. Sometimes it takes a couple times but it always works on mine.

Car CD player


bose provided the speakers, now problems relating to cd play from that point of view.
i had similar problem in my volvo , and decided to take the stereo out to find out why it would eject. i dscovered my kids shoved coins into the cd player slot.......... even though the disk itself was also not good......

if for some reason you decide to remove cdplayer element of stereo from car ( as car may be too long out of warranty )or you fell cool about doing this, just make sure you dont disconnect the climate control or the on board unit with central locking switches, or you will still have to bring your car back to the main dealer to get the air bag and locking systems reset. even removing the fuses from the fuse board wnt help here if you decide to proceed with DIY CD player repair as removing the wrong fuses or combinations of fuses (FOR YOUR MAKE AND MODEL OF CAR) will result in the same situation on re installation.

good luck.
