Siemans NCDC 2015 Car Radio/Sat Nav/Telephone/ CD player

Radio switches itself on at any time, day or night. It is OK when driving because it can be switched off but at night or when parked it draines the battery. The Vauxhall garage answer is a new unit @£1500. can you help.
Note: At times it is not possible to switch on but usualy comes on at the 2nd or 3rd try. Is there an exchange deal anywhere? ( not with Vauxhall)
Is it possible to take to a Siemans Repair agent in UK?

Heres a question....does the main power switch "feel" like the others.

The main power switch is one of those that gets a workout. After looking at some images, I am going to guess that it is what is called a "Tac" ( short for tactile ) switch.

How do you tell if it feels right?.....go to the least used switch on the unit ( is should theoretically be like new if it is the least used ) ,and very slowly push it in. What do you feel?....some resistance and then it gives?.....do you hear a slight snap ( make sure the unit is off or the volume is all the way down ). Now go to the power switch....does it feel the same ? A sign that ths switch is finished is that there is no travel to it, that is, when you push is it stops immediately....the least used switch should have a little "room" in it before it hits bottom and makes the connection.....I'll bet the switch is shot.......give it a go......Thanks..Rob

If you can feel a big difference in the switches, then I would take it to a local electronics shop and see it they can replace the switch ( those type of tac switches are EVERYWHERE ), or maybe find a seimens shop and have them look at it.....better than 1500 !!!!

2004 BMW X5 4.4i Left lights on resulting in flat battery. Car was jump started from another vehicle (Ford Transit van). Everything fine for a few days. Now, intermittently the radio/sat nav goes haywire!...


sounds like your car has the multi function steering wheel, i know on the 7 and 5 series they come out of sync, im not sure why.
its about £75 to get plugged in at the dealers and they reprogram it, sometimes i have had the odd car with a damaged slip ring, it does all sorts of things, 1 in particular kept on beeping the horn,
i would say if u got 1 urs got upset when battery flat.

Disc error


I have a 08 Cherokee SRT8 that did the same thing. I took my radio out and unplug it from the back to disable it from getting power. Waited a min then plug it back up. Note: if it does it again, replace head unit. Unit is going bad. I replaced mine w/ a aftermarket Pioneer double din with navi using all the factor plugging and steering controls.

Nope, you have to have the CD in whilst entering a nav route, frustrating as it is...

You have to listen to your CDs via an auto changer.
