It sounds like your charging system may be causing the problem. The voltage may be too high or the stereo may be too sensitive to high voltage. You need to connect a voltmeter to your system to make sure it's not charging over 14.5v. A normal charging system wii charge at 13.5-13.8v.

 

Have someone connect a digital multimeter to the B+ and ground wires of the head unit. Have a passenger monitor the voltage while driving. If the head unit cuts out at the same voltage each time and the voltage isn't excessive, the head unit needs to be repaired. If the voltage goes up above ~14.5v, the charging system needs to be checked.

2005 545i bmw sputtering at 40 miles per hour


So, here's what you have to do - it's a frikkin tranny reset!!

Drive in manual mode M5 for 5 minutes at over 60MPH, then switch it to M6 for 1 minute, then back to M5 for 2 minutes, then back to auto.
Note: the car is going to sputter continuously when you have it on M5 for the 5 minutes.

That was it - drove around for 30 minutes afterwards and no issues what so ever!! Unbelievable!!!

Display for radio stuck in '7 SAFE' mode


This sounds like a Phillips Car Stereo:

To get the code in:
1. Turn the stereo off.
2. Turn off the ignition
3. Turn the ignition back on (dash warning lights on)
4. Hold and keep down the AS button on the stereo.
5. Turn the stereo on.
6. Release the AS button after 4 dashes appear on the display
7. Now enter code (if code = 7009. Press preset button 1 seven times, button
2 once
3 once
4 nine times
If you go past you can go round again by pressing the
preset button repeatedly
8. Once all 4 numbers are correct hold down AS again until you hear a beep (2 - 5 seconds)
9. The stereo after beeping will scan to program channels
You have 10 attempts to get the code in. However some models will not give you the number of attempts remaining!

Time delays work as follows:

Attempt 1. 10 seconds
Attemp 2. 30 seconds.
Attempt 3. 10 minutes.
Attempt 4. 20 minutes
Attempt 5. 40 minutes
Attempt 6. 80 minutes
Attempt 7 160 minutes
Attempt 8 320 minutes
Attempt 9. 640 minutes (yes that is 10 hours 40 minutes!!)

Vitally important thing to remember, the countdown timer works only when the radio is switched on. ANY interruption in the power will reset the timer!

So, be prepared for a VERY long wait to be able to enter the code!
Oh, and if it has reached 10 attempts, then it needs a dealer unlock.

2005 SATURN VUE stalling at 60mph?


Iit seems that the computer got "confused". A way is to remove the negative battery cable for about a minute then reconnect. This will try to reprogram the computer. If it is still not good, try checking the CPS crankshaft position sensor and the IPS idle position sensor.

Blaupunk car stereo


There could be a loose connection somewhere.
Does the sound stops on a regular time interval or only on certain conditions?
Would there be a chance that there's water leakage at the area where the CD changer is stored?
