Someone may have put a custom radio in it and then put the PEM one back when it was sold. You should go to a dealer and see if they will copy the diagram for the wiring for you.

SOURCE: Sound not coming from left side surround sound speaker or my right side front speaker

it is highly likely that you're TV is outputting mono sound, hence the left channel only. check your physical connections to the TV and the balance / channel volume on the television as well.

Smaller gauge orange wire is a dimmer wire. If the radio you are installing does not have a dimmer wire, just tape it up.

Hope this helps.

In most cases the "pink" could either be for an automatic antenna OR remote control unit / The red wire in most cases is to keep the "memory" active on the unit (preset radio stations/clock)....

2001 BMW X5 radio works intermittently

Most sat nav/radio issues are caused by a flat battery! The most simple solution to try is th switch the vehicle off, go to the fuse box on the right hand panel of the boot (as your facing boot) remove fuse 24 (5 amp) for 5 minutes then replace and start vehicle as normal! This will reset the nav/stereo system! Rich B

Hi i have a 2003 x5 and three buttons on my stereo have stopped working the ones nearest the stearing wheel was told i need new stereo do i?

not unless you find someone willing to work on it that really knows what they are doing.
if you remove the deck,and take off the front panel,there is a printed circuit board with some 4 pin switches,surface mount on that board.
if you replace the switches it will work fine.

Bmw x5 auto 2002

Sounds like a faulty microswitch which is located on the boot lock mechanism, even though the boot might be locked, its still thinking its open and would need replacing. Unfortunately, I believe that this comes as one piece with the boot lock.

Another thing to be aware of one these is the wiring loom coming out from the body of the car and into the bootlid (on the right hand side boot lid when open) If you pull the rubber "tubing" off you'll gain access to the wiring. A common fault is for the wires to stress/break causing false contact. Hopefully one of these two problems should be your cause. Let me know how it goes!
